The place wasn't what I expected. It was very cold and the beddings were not as clean and white. I did however love the tea service in the room. The airport shuttle was also perfect though it came late

Warm welcoming staff But on checking out they are no longer friendly. We were picked up from the gautrain station but when we were to be transferred to airport we were told to pay. Very noisy due to aircrafts nearby

The premise has a very lovely aura. It's a quiet place. Very good meals. Quite tasty. There's a very friendly feline friend for those of you interested. I loved the view of the planes Parked at OR from the balcony of my room. Great experience. I'm coming back

Very nice for transit airport, the shuttle is rally the best for this guest house, but meal is so long to serve, more 1 hour before to start your dinner, keep it just for night and breakfast. Breakfast was nice

My room was adequate but no bulb in the bedside lamp and the TV did not work. Fruit salad was nice at breakfast but no choice of cereal, only a little cornflakes in container. No air conditioner or fan in room so in summer the room would have been very hot.
