Poor service and interaction with management
I've stayed at Premier Hotel many times, but after a poor experience with management on 29 Apr 2022, I won't be staying there again, and wouldn't recommend others to stay there either. Fortunately, there's good alternatives in the area that I can recommend instead: Protea Hotel, Southern Sun, and City Lodge, all of which are equally conveniently close to OR Tambo airport. During my last stay at Premier Hotel OR Tambo, I needed to leave my car there between stays. I checked many times and it was confirmed each time that I could do so for free. I called before I booked, before I traveled, and when I checked in. But when I tried to leave the car with security, the receptionist (Duncan) told me their policy had recently changed, and that cars cannot be left at the hotel. I communicated with him that that's not what I had been told when I booked. After the receptionist called his manager, I was then told that the policy had changed and now they charge a fee but because they had not yet agreed on what the amount should be, I couldn't even pay to leave my car. The manager (who infuriatingly refused to talk to me directly on the phone or allow the receptionist to give me his name) suggested that I find somewhere else to park and perhaps leave it at the airport. The manager didn't seem to care that it was 11:00 pm and we'd be flying out at 6:00 am the next day. It’s one thing to have a policy, it’s another to change it abruptly and leave your customers stranded and inconvenienced.

6/10 Good

Not up to par
Booked a stay because of the previous ratings. However our experience wasn't up to that rating. Front desk never told us about the "load shedding" issue. This is similar to the rolling blackouts we have in California. Electricity was constantly being turned off during our stay, shutting off AC & turning off the outlets. These never worked properly during our stay. Located in a quiet but run-down area outside the airport so don't expect to be going out for food or shopping. They do provide shuttle service to & from the airport.
