This is a nice hotel. It is a Holiday Inn so it is a little basic, but it is clean, comfortable and the staff are very nice. My room overlooked the pool and it was a nice size, with reasonable facilities. The bathroom had both shower and bath and was a good size. I only ate in the restaurant once...

This "new" Holiday Inn was the former Grand Hotel. I note from previous reviews that the Grand was criticised for the noise level, as it is at the end of a runway. In my opinion IHG have done an excellent job on the upgrade and the noise reduction. All that I noticed was a low "whoosh" for a couple of...

Located a few minutes drive from OR Tambo airport...shuttle provided on the hour both to and fro the hotel. Comfortable with all the necessary basics but lies in the pathway of landing aircraft so tends to be noisy especially the uppermost floor (rooms are not sound-proofed). The aircraft noise seem to subside at around midnight (less flights landing?). The restaurant...

I spent a night in this hotel and it was horrible. There sas no power and it was really frustrating. The hotel needs serious upgrade. The staff need coaching on how to treat guests. No one even offered to help me with my luggage.

This is a nice hotel, but it really need updating. The rooms are very tired. The team though really makes it worth staying here. From the reception to the housekeeping team, they cannot do more for you. Nothing is to much for them to address. The maintenance team is on top of things and despite everything being very old, they...

Stayed in this hotel for five days. It was a nice experience with well furnished rooms, including a bath tub and shower cubicle. Except that the restaurant had a limited menu and there are no restaurants just outside to walk to. Also the reception staff does not recommend walking to the mall nearby for security concerns !

Very beautiful hotel but somewhat hidden by the surrounding structures and vegetation. Hotel management may need to upgrade the signage for the hotel by the highways so that its location is known.

Close to the airport and relatively easy to find, this hotel is useful for a one night stay. The public areas belie tired and worn bedrooms. But it works for what you need and is well priced. Staff Were good and salads in the restaurant can be recommended .
