The location is good but the disorganised shuttle and unhelpful staff ruin it

The hotel is close enough to airport terminals, at approximately a 5min drive. However, the shuttle stops early in the evening and is very disorganised during the day (you can wait for more than 40min after the scheduled time) so that hotel is much less convenient than the more expensive ones located in the terminals. The staff is particularly unhelpful and unfriendly. Your choice of smoking/non smoking room will not be respected and overall the service is well below Protea's standards.

Great Budget Hotel

The shuttle was on time, check in was easy with no wait, they checked us in early which was great after such a long flight. The meals in the restaurant; dinner and breakfast were good quality and value for money. The staff were helpful, polite and welcoming. Can't fault this hotel, it does what it says on the tin and was completely fit for purpose.

Comfortable stopover

We were exhausted after a long flight and were grateful that we were so near the airport. The check in was fine but could be a bit friendlier. We had a few problems with the room which were rectified and the Joe and Martin were apologetic and helpful and offered us a complimentary treat. The staff were really lovely. The best part was the very comfortable bed. The room was very modern and not too big but we didn't mind as we were only there for a night. We had a very good breakfast which was a bit expensive but the dinner menu looked reasonable. Overall a very good stay and would definitely stay again.

Night stop

Hotel had obviously overbooked - only room available was one for those with disabilities - 'the bed is a bit low sir' - gratefully taken as the woman next to me was being redirected to another hotel, and there were mutterings behind - Luckily I had been quickest off the bus. Courtesy bus was half hourly back to the airport - DO NOT be fooled by the proximity to the terminal, it is a long drive round. Made it onto the bus in the morning only because I was first in the queue and my suitcase had been loaded in the back, while everyone else rushed the door.. Too many people to fit in the bus. A good choice for a one night stopover, but if you have a plane to catch at a busy time you might consider booking a taxi....

Perfect Sydney-to-Kruger overnight transfer

Following our 14-hour flight from Sydney, easy airport/hotel/airport transfer, combined with very comfortable accommodation, attractive dining options and courteous reception staff made our Protea experience the best possible start to our South African holiday.

Worst hotel ever

We stayed in the O.R Tambo hotel for one night. While booking in no-one thought to mention the fact that there was no running water in the hotel. Only after discovering that there was no water, did the person at reception inform us of a burst pipe. After an 18 hour flight all a person wants is a warm shower. We should have been informed about the water situation at check-in and given the option of a refund so that we could have booked into another hotel. The following morning there was water for only an hour or so before it was gone again. We booked a room and were informed that breakfast was included, but after having some coffee and a pastry, the hotel charged our account with R310 for breakfast. This was the single worst hotel experience we have ever experiencedand will never stay at a protea hotel again.

Surprisingly nice, with a few glitches

Very close to the airport, although despite asking where to catch the shuttle from we still found it hard to find (it leaves from the bus station which they neglected to tell us). Hotel is surprisingly comfortable, with a nice and clean room, big comfy bed, friendly staff and good amenities. Breakfast was very good, although service a bit slow considering most people were in a hurry to get to the airport.. The big issue was room service which was awful! Waited 45 minutes for an order placed at 10.30pm which never came, chased it up and they had 'lost it'. When it finally came close to midnight it was pretty nasty too, not what you want before an early flight.

Time-saving tip: In Hotel

the shuttle bus goes from the bus station every half hour until 11pm, if you arrive after that you'll need to call them to book.

Great Place

Free secure car parking. WiFi: Daily first 100Mb free then 100 Rand for 250Mb. Worked well. The only downside was that the hotel room doors needed to be slammed so, if your neighbour went out, the wall next to your bed shook (not too mention the noise).

Good but...

I could not connect to the internet and had to pay R150 for a taxi for two at 03:00 as the shuttle does not work at that time of the night
