Local hotel close to O.R. Tambo airport

Pros: Staff, location, atmosphere
Cons: Computer system, which had lost the record of my pre-payment through Wotif. It took some time to resolve this issue, including four calls to Wotif.
Location: Apart from airport, I don’t know what other activities are available nearby
Complimentary airport transfer to and from O.R. Tambo. Breakfast included and modestly priced set menu dinner available. No frills, but rooms are clean and secure. Ideal location for overnighting close to the airport. Might be a bit cramped for a longer stay. Also there didn’t appear to be shops, restaurants, etc. close by. Their computer system had lost the record of my pre-payment through Wotif. Or perhaps Wotif hadn’t made the payment. Which of these was never clear. In any event, it took four international calls to Wotif to resolve. Of these only 1out of the 3 Wotif service persons was particularly helpful. Of the other two, one said he’d send an email to the hotel confirming payment, but he never did; the other said he couldn’t help because the Wotif system was down, but undertook to resolve the issue and call the hotel within an hour to confirm -he never did! The third. I would happily stay at the hotel again, but I’d book directly and pay on arrival, rather than risk going through Wotif again. Also, I suspect you get a better price if you book directly. Just google the Dove’s Nest site for details
