Airport Game Lodge was a peaceful haven.

Pros: I loved the friendly and helpful staff.
Cons: Leaving a card in my room letting me know how to contact reception at any time would have been helpful.
Location: It is near the airport. On site they had quite a lot to do. You can go swimming, walking as it is a large plot or feed the animals that they have.
I unexpectedly had to book an overnight stay at this hotel when I realised my connecting flight to London was not going to be for a further 24 hours from Joburg. I book via expedia and was pleasantly surprised. I was picked up from the airport. You need to give them a call, they don't come automatically. It only took about 15 minutes to get to the Lodge once I was picked up. I booked in and was shown straight to my room. I was asked by Rodney who works at the Lodge if I wanted to do something the next day as I had quite alot of time on my hands. I was able to negotiate a round trip to see Nelson Mandela museum and his house and home town. I really had a great time.

Quick pickup (15 minutes after call), friendly service staff and lots of space with animals just over the fence. Pool looked clean and they offer free breakfast and you can easily book tours leaving there.

Very nice place to stay in Joburg

We enjoyed this place very much. They have a free shuttle to and from the airport, an excellent full breakfast, good wifi, very courteous and accommodating staff. The location feels far outside of the city, with lush grounds, animals, beautiful pool, etc...and yet is only 15 minutes from the airport. They have a restaurant onsite which offers good food at affordable prices. Although on our last stay they only offered a buffet dinner option which we found to be too pricey for a family of five. We will most certainly stay here again if we are flying into Joburg. Excellent value for your money!

Before an overnight layover I found the lodge online. I picked it because it was more affordable. And I was stoked on where I ended up. Away from the city but still close to the Airport. Super Quiet, big rooms, could easily stretch out and do yoga in mine. They will pick you up, arrange in advance, or what a bit once you get there it is worth it.

Great hotel with free airport shuttle and wifi

Pros: Free airport shuttle, good wifi, very friendly staff.
Cons: No restaurant on premises (except for breakfast). Take-out is available, but delivery is about 1.5 hours. Shuttle can drive you to restaurants.
Location: Close to airport, but quite a distance away from the city centre. Shuttle can also take you to other locations close by.
We started an adventure trip from this hotel and returned for an extra night. The deluxe room was very comfortable with excellent bathroom facilities. Staff at reception went out of their way during check-in, as well as during our stay. We opted for a half day tour to visit the Apartheid museum and seamless arrangements were made by the front desk. Breakfast was good quality and had a nice variety of food. A bonus was the presence of animals close to the room, giving a preview of any safari or wildlife drive you are planning to do. Enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this hotel.
