We stay here four or five times each year. Always good, clean, and comfortable. Very good value for money. Staff is very helpful and always smiling. We will be back two more times in 2016. Just keep in mind it is not a five star hotel and you wont be disappointed I promise you. The buffet breakfast is great, but... More

Terrible service. Terrible food. Crappy room. Early checkout so no breakfast but no offer of packed breakfast or remuneration. One restaurant closed but no rebate on cost. Having just spent a weekend in the cape wine lands where we paid the same rate, it is clear that this 0 star establishment has absolutely nothing to offer other than airport proximity.... More

The hotel is within close proximity of the airport making it an ideal stop over when in transit. The Hotel offers an excellent service to guests. I frequently stay over at the hotel. The food served at the Rosie's Irish Pub is definitely value for money as well as the accommodation rate at the hotel.

Use this hotel for one night due to a tight connection. Very easy to find from arrivals - just follow the numerous signs for Intercontinental Hotels and there is a bus depot to the rear. Didn't wait too long for a bus. Had the smallest portion of steak and chips in the Irish bar we have ever seen. There is... More

All staff are friendly and helpful. Big and clean rooms. And the Irish restaurant is a great place to chill and to eat and drink for a nice price. I love it. Good and save system for car parking. I had a very nice stay for 2 weeks. I love to come back.

Stayed here the night before my tour. Hotel room was comfortable, staff was friendly and the check in and check out process went smoothly. Had dinner in the restaurant downstairs and the good was gteat. Can't complain it was the ideal spot for the night. Just about 5 minutes from the airport. Will definitely recommend.

The staff were good and the check in went really well. However the stay itself wasn't great. Although we were probably a bit jet lagged the bed was very uncomfortable which made resting worse.

After a long flight, I was looking forward to a bath & dinner. Upon arrival, they could not get my booking voucher because, lo & behold, it was sent to a computer which was in an office which was locked. I thought hotels offer 24 hour service? Waited at the reception for what felt like eternity. Was completely not impressed👎🏾
