Cons: Change the dinner menu around just a bit
Staff is very nice and helpful. Rooms are very comfortable and clean. It is a great value, but very noisy being so close to the airport. It does quiet down late at night for awhile.

Useful, clean and friendly airport stay

Posted Feb 16, 2017
Pros: Free airport transfers on your arrival and departure.
Cons: Shaver point for electric toothbrush charging in the bathrooms
Location: Great local Tours run by the Lodge (City, Soweto and Cradle of Human Kind) are available, and very good if you have time waiting for a night flight.
The great staff make this Lodge a real treat, with very friendly efficient service, it also had lovely well presented simple dinners and tasty breakfasts. Our room was clean and well equipped. The swimming pool is handy too. However, air con only available in the Log Cabin. Would recommend for a short stay and don't worry about the aircraft noise, it really wasn't very noticeable at all. Ideal for waiting for a flight as sun loungers and a pool table. Thanks so much to Angie on reception and also Ishmael for the interesting tours around Jo'berg.

Basic Sleepover

Posted Dec 28, 2016
Pros: Very nice African theme lounge, dining and pool area. Close to airport. Fine for a layover.
Location: Poor location. Not safe to walk to shops.
This facility is a +-10 min drive from the O. R. Tambo airport. It is not in a good area. I would not recommend taking a walk in the neighbourhood. Rooms are clean but basic.

Well kept airport accommodation

Posted Dec 13, 2016 on Hotels
Hotel can be contacted by email to alert them of the need for late night / early morning use of their 24 hour shuttle - found their address on a search engine. Guest needs to phone the hotel number on arrival to initiate the pickup (call shouldn't cost more than 1 rand from the airport payphones, or information/security can call them). Reception is limited hours so the driver checks you in. Local area can be noisy and didn't look overly safe, but property is one of several in the area and is secured with walls and electric fencing. Standard rooms were a little over 25m square and came with a fan for cooling, a storage room and soap dispensers. Dining / billiards area is well presented, offers 24 hour self service tea/coffee making and an honesty bar as well as complimentary breakfast (mixture of continental buffet and cooked). Well kept garden offers a number of deck chairs and a reasonable temperature swimming pool. Staff were helpful and efficient, additional shuttle rides can be arranged at a cost for various locations like the Gautrain (best to get on/off at the commuter station just outside the airport as it's less than half the price). Most guests stay for a single night so those staying for several will have the place to themselves most mornings and afternoons. Overall a pleasant and reasonably priced place to stay with quick access from/to the airport.
