I've used this hotel on multiple occasions. It is literally right in front of the international arrivals hall. The rooms are small, but extremely comfortable and the bathrooms are luxurious. The health club is fine, although they could use more elliptical machines. The food at the restaurant, Quills, is very good. In fact, if I have a long lay-over I...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 1 week ago

This is a perfect hotel for stop-overs on your way to safari or another destination. The hotel is literally located right across the street from the airport and you can roll your luggage up to the door. The best airport hotel I've ever stayed at and up to expectations for the Intercontinental brand as well. Check-in: 2 minutes at the...

After leaving the airport, walking across the road, maximum five minutes we were in the hotel reception checking in.

I've stayed in a ton of airport hotels and this is one of the two best I have ever stayed in.Incredibly comfortable rooms with luxuriant bathroom that include soaking tub and shower large enough for several people!

We stayed 3 nights at the InterContinental on the way to Richards Bay, South Africa. Initially we chose this hotel because it was at the airport and we were arriving late. Being able to collect your baggage then literally walk across the street into a luxurious hotel was priceless. We were off the plane and in bed within 30 minutes!...

Stayed overnight on my return from an overseas trip. Check in staff were friendly. For a five star hotel the rooms are small but comfortable. Unfortunately the bath had a dirty ring around it which is a common occurrence in South Africa because of no supervision. Went into the lounge area and unfortunately the service was non existent and the...

The rooms are very nice, well maintained and tasteful. Given the security concerns in Jo'burg this is the place to stay if you are stopping over and want o connect to game reserves or Cape Town. The highlight is the spa. I landed, relaxed and went to the spa for a 60 minute relaxing massage and facial.

We stayed here for one evening en route to Kasale. The bedrooms are extremely well appointed and the bed was probably one of the most comfortable I have ever slept in.
