Generally very impressed -- I only give 5 stars for hotels that blow me away in their price category. This one is simply very good value for money. - Spotless - Huge rooms - very large living room / desk area, and sizeable bedroom - Staff was very helpful, although I didn't need them much to be honest: I arrived very late (early the morning after my reserved arrival time) and they did hold the room for me; and left luggage for my last day, after checkout, was easy - Balcony - I think most rooms have one? - Top floors and the top-floor bar & pool have great views - Very reasonably priced - Just a few blocks from Wits, Constitution Hill and the Constitution Court / Old Fort, and Park station on Gautrain - Decent internet (not perfect, limited to 600 MB/day which may not be enough if you're streaming video, but adequate for my needs) - Some of the finishes in the room were a bit faded or strange - not top-quality (but this isn't a luxury hotel) - Would be nice to have a digital clock by the bedside, and 1-2 free outlets for charging phones, etc. - I had a nice little fridge, sink and many cupboards -- all empty except for a small coffee-maker and a few small spoons. If you have a little kitchenette like this, please include dishes & utensils... otherwise, not clear why to have the cupboards at all. - Not the hotel's fault, but: Braamfontein is not terribly lively after dark on weeknights. I didn't feel unsafe at all, but do be generally aware of those around you -- but don't be paranoid, it's largely known to be a safe student neighborhood. Also, didn't eat at the restaurant due to concerns raised by others (and so that I got out to see a bit more of the area).
The hotel far from everything that there is to do in the city, the staff was unhelpful in giving places to visit as they were really worried about our safety. So we practically spent 24 hours in the hotel as there was no facilities suitable to do anything.
Clean and super spacious suite room. Welcoming staff rooftop pool and gyme a bit eerily quiet
Clean, friendly, easy
The staff was top notch. Most went above and beyond to assist. The room was comfortable and accommodating. They made me feel welcome and made it easy to relax after a couple of very busy weeks of travel. Strong WIFI, nice business services area. I'd stay there again. Thank you! The bar was a disappointment and a stark contrast to the rest of the hotel. I waited about 5 minutes before I finally had to get someone's attention to take my order (even though there were 2 workers behind the bar the whole time). The layout is not conducive to starting conversations among others at the bar and neither was the staff. I felt like I was inconveniencing them. Also, restaurant staff came to the bar and talked about dining patrons right in front of the guests at the bar. Not professional.
The staff was very attentive and wonderful. Wifi in my room was not working
Great location for someone arriving Johannesburg one day and leaving the next. Hotel is 3-minute walk from Airport, which has luggage carts you can push over there and leave. Bellman will take you to ticket counter for check-in the next day. Great staff, genuinely pleased that you are there. Excellent food. Soundproof, no airport noise. I normally stay at Sandton Hilton near my business partners' office, but when staying overnight to connect a flight the next day, the added cost of this hotel is absolutely worth while. I shall return. Cannot think of anything I did not like.
Staff is excellent, very friendly
The security no.
Liked the restauruants in the complex and level of security Just too far from Joburg centre
Quality of room and restaurant were nice, as well as location close to casino. Ordered wake-up call - never came, lucky to have woken up on my own. Ad said international outlets were in the room - they were not. Airport shuttle bus had a schedule, arrived on time, but then didn't depart for 15 minutes.
two bathrooms, bed was comfy Room service answering telephone was very rude to me, food was poor, lights in bathroom didnt work. very expensive for the time I had
Clean rooms, nice bed, good restaurants nearby and great breakfast. Shuttle service back and forth to the airport was excellent. Older rooms, staff is okay and hotel a bit pricey
Check your bill!!!
Very nice hotel and casino, luxury rooms and amazing breakfast I had a squeaking pipe in my room and it was hard to sleep bacuse of the noise
The breakfast buffet was grand The rate and size of rooms. Was a little expensive for rooms of that size
Plenty of food choices and entertainment Getaroom.com screwed up the booking and there was no record of it with the Hotel. Mondior accommodated me though and were very helpful
This hotel does not justify the 3000 rands that we paid for a one night stay. It was the little things that let the room down - stains on the duvet cover and towel, no bath robes, hot and cold taps the wrong way around in the shower. However it was the rest of the hotel that was the real let down. Corridors full of detritus, and worst was the lack of restaurant. The staff directed us to the adjoining casino which was full of family restaurants - offering plenty of selection but nothing of quality. Breakfast in the hotel was diabolical with piles of limp egg and bacon that seemed to have been cooked hours before. I don't mind a hotel of dubious quality but not if I'm paying 3000 rands a night.
convenient Transit hotel close to airport, with reliable shuttle, reasonable rooms, nice breakfast and easy access to range of restaraunts. Price was hiked due to World Cup
access to the airport/ friendly staff/ good breakfast
The breakfast buffet Staff were rude and service poor
Very nice stay. Extremely good value. Near to airport with free shuttle service an pleasant welcome at airport arrivals. Very helpful and nice staff. Nothing - all good!
staff willing to assist with tour options/suggestions, friendly atmosphere
Arthur was very friendly and the place seemed totally secure.
Great Staff Far from the city and overpriced en relation with the quality of the hotel
Family atmosphere and warm welcoming on both occassions. Great place owned by great, friendly and helpful people.
We stayed here twice and found it to be the perfect place for an overnight near JNB. Airport transfers were seamless and the family atmosphere at the guesthouse was warm and inviting. Highly recommended!
The hotel is beautiful, quiet and neat. Not known
Owners were very friendly, helpful and accomodating.
The staff was great... the receptionist was friendly, went out of her way to accommodate us, and was able to answer our questions. The shuttle drivers were funny and we always felt safe in the car. We were the only guests on the property and the staff left at 9p... we were completely alone in a strange city, and had no one around. The room was tiny, and hot, with only a floor fan. The receptionist also pointed out the emergency light, in case power goes out! So weird. We ended up cancelling the second part of our stay for a regular hotel.
Close to airport, clean, very comfortable I do not like TVs hanging high up on the wall
good hospitality expensive
Very friendly staff, excellent service, very nice breakfast, comfortable rooms. Diner was also very good (is not included in the standard room rate). Highly recommended. Safe area. Kempton Park is not a very exciting location. However, it is easy to make day trips to the most important sights in Johannesburg. The staff will help you with this.
I enjoyed the hospitality of the manager, and well trained staff. the atmosphere, the layout of the rooms, the breakfast area, all neat & clean. I am going back again next year and highly recomend it to my friends. N/A
The facilities were lovely, the staff helpful and breakfast was great.
My boyfriend and I found all the staff very friendly and helpful. The room was delightful and very comfortable. It was definitely good value for money. Breakfast was very good too. Overall we had no complaints at all apart from the fact we only spent one night there as a stopover before our flight back to the UK and so didn't have any time to explore Johannesburg.
The friendly and homely atmosphere created by the staff on our arrival and departure no
Very good hotel. Friendly! good service the first time don't smell good....
I enjoyed my stay. It was close to the airport and a comfortable place to stay. A quiet haven away from the bustle of the city. I did find it a little difficult to find initially, but once in the area fine. Also food service at breakfast was pretty slow.
Good, friendly service, nice rooms, great breakfast buffet. Room for one night was a bit expensive (during World Cup). Bed was a little hard.
Nice place, welcoming staff. Both bar and braai (barbecue) are lovely...
Location close to JNB. Very helpful staff. Excellent meals. Large rooms. My room needed minor repairs, but nothing that would have detracted from a delightful stay.
Extremely clean and nice accommodation, excellent food, great location and even better hosts. Room dining facility was absent.
Owner picked me up at the airport, and arranged taxi for way back at 4 am. Good combination of price and quality.
A very calm, and luxurious oasis which I thoroughly enjoyed during my stopover before departing from SA.
Lovely room, comfortable bed, beautiful surroundings and friendly staff.
Nice, clean, and cozy hotel. Staff are friendly, responsive, and professional. Excellent value for money with free breakfast, fitness center, pool, and free internet. I loved and enjoyed my stay there and will definitely stay there again. PS: Confirm with the booking site that transportation is included with the price. Internet speed can be a bit slow at times.
greatv for a one noight transfer, but bring your earplugs
Large room. Tv. The pick-up service from the airport. No.
Friendly and convenient location. -
proximity with the Airport, easy to find, great rooms and friendly hotel staff. The food on evening.
kind people and convenient
Transfer to airport was a nice service of the hotel. We weren't content with the cleanless of the rooms/beds.
Very friendly and helpful Very near the runway so noisy.
Friendly staff, prompt in delivering us to airport next day for plane to Durban
Prompt pick up from airport. Had to wake staff up for transfer back to airport in the morning.
The Shuttle service
Clean and modern hotel, good lounge area, well-stock bar (honesty system), good security. No heating, so quite cold in winter.
A unique guesthouse, home-like, not really a hotel, with lovely accomodations and good breakfast. Staff were nice and friendly, and in response to my booking form request, arranged a tour of Johannesburg and Soweto, and arranged late transport to JNB. No.
Facilities were excellent.
The friendliest staff I've ever encountered, perfect rooms with plenty of comfort, marvelous shower and great food!
No curtains on the glass door, consequently too light.
I love the owners. They made everything plesantly confortable for my short stay. n/a
Very clean, owners are very friendly, possibility of having dinner with them for a small fee. The lack of free Internet.
Very friendly and helpful staff. Lovely room with privacy. Great to have efficient and inexpensive pick-up and delivery from airport. Air-conditioning would have been a bonus.
I was made most welome and grateful for being met at the airport and driven back when I departed. My only disappointment was the distance to the airport. When originally booked the Booking.com website indicfated 0.9 kms distance.. not the 9 kms actual distance.
met at airport and returned to airport for onward flight the next day
The hospitality of the staff including the owner of the guest house and the homely environment. No
Cleanliness of the room, comfortable bed with crispy clean linen, hot delicious breakfast & friendly staff. Water pressure in the shower dropped significantly in the morning may be through heavy usage but that made it unpleasant to freshen up on a cold spring morning.
Close to airport, modern hotel with large rooms and nice bathroom. Good breakfast and dinner.
Extremely convenient to Johannesburg airport. Friendly, relaxed atmosphere - even had an 'honesty' bar. No hair dryer in the room / bathroom
Very pleasant stay, a quiet oasis just what you need as a stop off inbetween journeys. well laid out lovely gardens attracting wildlife, close to airport, helpfull staff.
Airport pick up service was great and the staff were very friendly.
Excellent all round.
Very close to airport. Very inviting, nicely designed and home-like.Lovely breakfast. No clock or phone in room...only "wake-up knock". Staff failed to tell us about honor bar and need to request hairdryer to take to room
the homely feel, relaxed atmosphere and felt safe only problem right in the flight path a bit noisy
Very convenient to airport, especially the friendly transfer service. Ideal place to stay between international flights - a lovely little oasis with beautiful gardens and self-catering facilities. Restful and relaxing, with fresh homemade pastries and cooked breakfasts or dinners if desired. The lounge and bar are well appointed and work on an honour system, all very peaceful and private, no hustle and bustle. The rooms/units were lovely, with french doors opening onto the garden, but when the curtains are open (which is necessary to open the doors) there is no privacy from other guests or staff walking past, especially at night when lights are on in the room. A great solution would be to replace the curtains with timber blinds or shutters, which could be angled to allow fresh air and privacy. Also, would be good to have laundry facilities, hairdryer and clock.
This was a very safe and close place to stay on a brief overnight airport visit. It was clean and nice, and easy to get out and walk around and have a meal even though we were really jetlagged. The IDEAL airport hotel. It obviously had more to offer than that, but that was what we needed. I did not like only having a curtain - rather than a door - between my bed and the toilet.
The room was very comfortable and clean, and I also liked that I could open the door for fresh air. In the evening I meandered over to the casino area and there were plenty of restaurants plus the casino itself was fun. In the morning I had the breakfast buffet which offered everything imaginable and was very delicious. My stay at Metcourt was a very positive experience and I would stay here again.
I had no problems with the hotel, it fit what I needed it for. A big plus is all the onsite amenities (casino, convention center etc..) not at all
I chose the hotel primarily for its proximity to the airport. The free shuttle to and from OR Tambo was very convenient. I was not interested in the casino, but found the restaurants within the complex provided a nice variety of meals. The staff were very friendly, everyone from the desk staff to those we passed in the halls. Our international flight did not leave until the evening, but the staff allowed us to store our bags and relax by the pool throughout the day. The breakfast included was delicious. I could not believe all the choices. I have no concerns
The hotel is new and very functional with adequate food It would be better with a gym
cleanliness. average. hotel and its facilities were fine, but not as described on the website. a seat in the corner of the room does not constitute a 'seating area', and two single beds is not a family room. also, the walls appeared to made of paper, extremely noisy.
I regard the "unenclosed" bathroom as entirely inappropriate for a hotel at this price level and would not have booked there if I had known in advance. I woudn't stay there again for that reason.
The hotel is located in a secure complex. All facilities are within walking distance and the staff are the best!
Shuttle bus, clean rooms, good breakfast Rooms very small. Not the Metcourt Laurel we have stayed at before
Very modern & cold.
Accesibility from airport and to the Gautrain system. The mall within the complex including cinemas. Great stuff.
