Reception and Restaurant staff and service at this hotel is superb. The biggest under-performer at southern Sun OR Tambo is the Housekeeping Department. To wait for an ironing board and iron from 14:20 to 15:01 (41 minutes) and being fed with empty promises amounts to putrid service in anyone's language.

Generally ,your hotel was quite good.There is need to properly assign duties to all workers,there present to avoid confusion .Delegation of duties lacks where some areas will be having more workers ,whilst others will be having less or none.

We stayed here one night between flights and the hotel was just about perfect for our purposes. Aside from the check-in computer system being down at check-in, which caused some inefficiencies, the room was clean and comfortable and the shuttle to the airport was easy and convenient.

Our stay was very comfortable and the service from personnel was outstanding. All personnel were well-informed and well-trained. It is close to airport and hospital. The personnel went the extra mile, everytime that we requested help. I will strongly recommend this establishment to any one.

Convenient overnight accommodation when flying to or from OR Tambo. Close to the airport, safe parking, sound proof. Perfectly clean, crisp linen. Nice size rooms. Great variety for both dinner and breakfast. Welcome snacks, friendly reception. Just what you expect from a Sun International.

We had to stay here due to a cancelled flight (thank you British Airways!). Bearing that in mind, the stay was good. the staff had to deal with a lot of disgruntled customers. they did it with grace and pleasantness. A good mid price hotel.

In the room a strong gas smell evident. Air conditioner not working. Morning no water. Breakfast disappointing- sausage only protein present. dishes not replenished, tables not cleared. Reception and housekeeping shocking.
