A quirky hotel surrounded by aircraft on the airfield outside and aeroplane memorabilia inside. Incredibly helpful staff day and night. Would definitely go back.Room facilites more than adequate even down to fresh milk in the fridge.

The service was excellent and the breakfast was very nice as well. The room was very clean and the staff are all very friendly and helpful. You also receive a complimentary hot chocolate and rusk. I would definitely recommend Dakota Lodge.

Warm welcome by professional staff. Room facing the landing strip of Rand Airport , an experience to be remembered! Thank you Captain Flippie Vermeulen. The classic Dakota on display favoured us so much so that a flight with her is a must as soon as possible!!!

What an amazing idea - a hotel in an hangar at the airport. The boys were delighted! The rooms are functional, with a shower only in the bathroom. There is a "kitchenette", with tea / coffee making facility, a prep bowl and basin - we found that useful. Sadly our A/C wasn't very good. The staff were incredibly helpful. There's free wifi in the reception / lounge. We could walk to Harvard cafe for any meals. Such a convenient lodge for pilots.
