Breakfast and dinner excellent and also the service. The rooms are very quiet and well fitted out...

We checked in late afternoon as we needed to fly out early the following day. You literally come out of arrivals, cross the small road in front and you are there - less than a minute from terminal to hotel reception.The room was extremely well equipped (iron / ironing board / Bluray DVD) etc and the bed was wonderfully comfortable....

This hotel mostly exceeded my expectations. We stayed one night for a stopover on the way to CT. The hotel and rooms are tastefully decorated in a modern African style. Rooms well maintained and show no signs of wear and tear...and are impeccably clean. Best of all, the rooms are as quiet as a tomb and you won't hear a...

I had a wonderful stay at the O R Tambo Intercontinental hotel. I guess they have no choice but to maintain high standards high quality meals and an excellent service, the fact being that the hotel has everything going for it. The proximity to the arrivals hall, right at the airport itself is all that is required. No complaints just...

This hotel is a hop, skip and jump outside of the arrival hall. The staff provide excellent service and the rooms are beautifully furnished. There's lots of space and the shower is awesome (along with a very grand bath). I also enjoyed a delicious dinner in the restaurant. After enduring my long flight this place was bliss!

My husband and I stayed here for an overnight layover and this was the nicest airport hotel I have ever encountered. The location is ideal as it is literally across the street from the international terminal. We didn't even have to take a shuttle. Our King room was lovely, the fitness center was modern and well kept and the food...

This hotel worked out great as we needed a place to stay overnight before catching a flight. We arrived from Johnstone, walked across the street to the hotel, got upgraded to a suite, enjoyed a great meal, slept, caught breakfast and walked back across the street to the terminal. Just what we needed!
