I loved the linen on the bed and the pillows were fabulous. The room was very quiet and there was no noise from the aircon. Everyone was polite and friendly. The restaurant was very busy at dinner time and service was a little bit haphazard. I enjoyed my stay. Thank you.

Great hotel for a short stop over

Pros: Location, comfort and the amenities. The staff service was very attentive and the food was great.
Cons: No, was great.
Location: Location is close to the airport with a free transfer, which is great.
After travelling around Southern Africa for a month it was a great hotel to stay and relax, with very friendly staff, all the amenities and great food. Located close to the airport with free transfer and the option to late checkout which was greatly appreciated. This is a great place to stay for a short stop over period in Johannesburg.

Room for improvement with booking services

My only disappointed experience with hotel I request shuttle service with my booking and at no time did the hotel think to notify me the shuttle service arrangement , I had to contact the hotel via phone, it’s a complete let down considering that 90% of your staff in house are polite and helpful and excellent representatives of your company.
