If you need reasonably priced lodging near O Tambo airport this is ideal....easy to find shuttle bus to and from (early morning to midnight - every half hour but after midnight hotel can arrange a taxi for you) the airport - about a 15 minute ride on a good day, nice clean rooms with safe and tea/coffee making facilities and...

Nothing particularly cozy but the staff is very kind and rooms are clean. Staff is really helpful Wifi is for free only for 1 hour but the location is very practical and close to the airport. Breakfast is good and generous Good restaurant in the the surrounding

As an overnighter between flights this is absolutely fine. I wouldn't consider this as an option for longer stays if you travel with much luggage or don’t have your own car. The rooms and bathrooms are minuscule but clean enough. The beds are comfortable, shower decent, amenities basic but adequate and black-out curtains effective. Rooms facing the garden are quiet...

I would never have expected to have such a service for that price. Simple but clean and nice, good breakfast and super staff! You even get a pastry when leaving and shuttle from and to the airport are super punctual. A must if you need to sleep next to airport!

Some mixed feelings about this hotel. We only spent 1 night en route to Limpopo, so chose somewhere close to the airport. The staff were absolutely amazing - I can't compliment them enough. From the desk attendant to the manager, we were treated like royalty. The room however was another story. We didn't mind too much that it was small,... More

Despite the facility of dining being closed next door, the Town Lodge, did a fine job feeding our large team and taking care of us. We stay here every year because it is a lovely home away from home! OMNI team

When I checked in on the evening of 27/10/2013 I was told I could not pay in USD, so I paid with the only Rands I had left. I waited for what seemed an eternity to be checked in, and to pay the waiting cab driver with the change. Once I got to my room (240), the lady at reception... More

I find the combination of quality accommodation without frills and an excellent breakfast is hard to beat. Other places may have fancier rooms but may not have as many options for breakfast. The staff are efficient and welcoming and the rooms are well maintained with everything working. My only disappointment was that the restaurant that was next door has closed... More

Similar to the Grayston Drive branch, this hotel is basic, but sufficient. It sits right beside the R24 which is a very busy freeway. Road noise will be devastating if you find yourself on the wrong side of the hotel. Rooms are compact but neat. Room layout is not as good as the Roodepoort branch. Wash basin is inside room...
