Reviewed 13 August 2013

After a long trans-Atlantic flight our group of 6 was warmly welcomed and quickly assigned rooms that were spotless, well appointed and very comfortable. The bathroom was large, with both a bath tub and shower. The dining room offered a long and varied buffet as well as a menu - all our choices were delicious. Since we were leaving before...

I was disapointed by my recent experience at the Grand Airport Hotel, SA. The hotel appeared old and run down, the internet was appaulling and the customer service is less then desirable. I would recommend investigating other hotels to stay at if requiring an airport 'stop over'.

This is a pleasant hotel close to the airport and OK for a one night stopover. However, there are a few drawbacks. The rooms are a little dowdy and could do with renovation. The sound proofing is totally inadequate and every aircraft flying overhead sounds as though it is in the room. There is no minibar. There is no shaver...

I stayed over for a conference at the venue. The hotel is directly in the flight path of planes landing at OR Thambo and can be noisy; about a 10 minute drive from the terminals. Located near the East Rand mall, car lots and other shops which mostly close at night fall. As a regular runner, I did not bother...

This is a good hotel with great friendly service and accommodating staff. Facilitated a very early check-in and restaurant meals outside normal hours. Food is good and hotel was generally clean. However internet in room simply didn't work and single-glazed windows so close to the airport caused noise to reverberate around the room making sleep virtually impossible. However, it was...

Stayed one night before flying to Zambia. Noisy although planes did seem to stop about 9pm but started at 6:15 am. Shower and bath not very clean and the ceiling was damaged on the bathroom. Food adequate. Won't be going back.

We stayed over on a Friday night as a last minute decision and with a discounted price on trip advisor which came in very handy! Everything was perfect and the breakfast was excellent. And we could go into the very nearby town after breakfast the next morning. Definitely a recommended hotel!

We had a great time at this hotel after staying there 3 separate times over the last 2 weeks (1-3 nights at a time before and after our safari and Cape Town trip).
