    The staff were incredibly accommodating. The food was very good. And so close to the airport! Easy in and out.

    Highly recommend. Great all round.

    Only stayed one night due to transit at OR Tambo but even from that one night it is clear that Aviator is a great hotel. Free shuttle every 30 minutes from the airport, quick check-in at reception, lovely and decent sized rooms, nice bathroom with shower, comfortable bed, DSTV, and then add a small but swimming pool and a gym and a good restaurant on site.

    We stayed here three time: first when arriving in S.A. before heading to Kruger park, again before our flight to Cape Town, and lastly before returning home. We felt safe here,had comfortable beds and rooms, enjoyed delicious meals, and interacted with friendly, helpful, competent staff. The shuttle to and from the airport was reliable (within 5-10 minutes of being perfectly on-time ). Receptionist arranged for a private transport company to drive us across town for a little last-moment impromptu sightseeing. We had a late flight out. Reception had the availability to extend our checkout for free until noon, then charged us 100 Rand an hour until 2 pm when we shuttled to the airport. No two stays were exactly the same, but I could easily recommend this hotel to family and friends. I will say we tipped accordingly, based on recommendations by tourism sites and that may have improved service. Happy trails!
