This location is situated near the airport, so it was very handy for us as a base whilst we were travelling throughout Africa. Also very safe to leave your belongings if you are going on trips to other countries. Mavis cooks pretty breakfasts.

Friendly and welcoming staff, pick up and location near to the airport.

  Rebecca D... 

The immediate proximity to the airport is terrific, and transfers to && from the airport are no cost and done attentively. We stayed there on two occasions and both times the rooms were spacious and comfortable. Extremely clean and safe. The employees went out of their way to be helpful and informative. The no cost breakfasts are tasty hot meals, making a stay here amazing value for the cost.

  Customer Review 

The staff were really quite good, and it&'s nicely situated just across the highway from the airport. It&'s kept extremely clean and security is good. I appreciated the outstanding free breakfast and free airport/Gautrain shuttle.

  Customer Review 

It&'s near the airport, so i didn&'t get up early inside the morning to go catch my flight. Has a bus to transfer you to the airport.
