        Nice small hotel 15 minutes from OR Tambo airport”

        This small hotel is an easy 15 minute drive from OR Tambo airport. The hotel provides complimentary airport transfers which is very convenient. The rooms are large and beautifully decorated. Massages are good but quite expensive as is the 3 course dinner ( we weren’t offered an a la carts option). Pretty garden with a pool. All in all probably priced more for tourists than locals but an enjoyable night en route to overseas holiday.

        Wonderful stay”

        Had a very pleasant stay at this hotel. Food very good, staff superb, room excellent. The pool in the lovely lush garden with the weaver birds making nests was a great way to chill out for a few hours. I would highly recommend this boutique hotel to anyone wanting a welcoming caring place to stay.
