Everything one needs for a quick business trip. Situated close to airport and casino with many eateries. Staff are very courteous. Bar and restaurant a bit pricey for quality but many other restaurants within 10 min drive. Airport Shuttle service every 30min a plus!

Excellent place for a night or two. Rooms are big enough for a couple with plenty of luggage (+carry on +backpack). Electric kettle is always helpful. Glass door in the toilet is funny. Air conditioning is a little noisy but works very well and doesn't disturb your sleep. We didn't experience noise from the airport, maybe because we spent one...

Enjoyed my stay as usual. Comfortable and clean rooms, breakfast buffet nothing special but good. Staff are friendly and keen to help. The rooms though could do with some extra lighting especially as I often work while at the hotel.

Very affordable and close to the airport. The transfers were extremely helpful and assisted with peace of mind in what can often be stressful times. The breakfast was excellent. My daughter left on a much later connecting flight and the manager was extremely accomodating, organising transfers to Sandton and place to store her luggage. I would defintely come back if...

The staff at the hotel were very helpful. The room was very nice and clean. The breakfast was also very nice. It is very convenient having an efficient shuttle going to OR Tambo airport every half an hour. Great value for money.

This is one of the most pleasurable stays we had in a very long time! Kind staff, nice food and perfect rooms! Thanks allot!! You will most certainly see us again. The shuttle service that they offer from the Airport and to Hotel and back again is great and it saves you the trouble of commuting yourself!

The hotel has some funky innovative decor, however it is not well maintained. Staff are not consistent in service delivery, some will be ultra friendly and helpful, some do not even give eye contact. Our room was small, which is fine for an airport hotel, the decor was different but it was not well maintained. The tap was loose and...

We reached the Aviator OR Tambo after a long day of travel and delayed flights. We were promptly picked up by the free airport shuttle. Check in was smooth and the kitchen which had closed, offered to fix up a quick meal for us as we had not had dinner en route. The room was very comfortable, and we also...
