I love this hotel. After 10 years of going to various hotels around the airport I finally found the one that I will return to time and again. The owners are amazing and treat you like old friends. The hotel is luxurious and makes you feel special.

Lovely staff; they couldn’t do enough to help. Picked us up late at night from train and thereafter looked after us superbly. This is a small boutique hotel which is an oasis of peace, close to the main airport. Highly recommended.

8/10 Very good

Decent alternative
Very convenient to airport. Room is somewhat small. Only access is via exterior. Not good if it rains. Food is mixed in quality. Did a very good game dish. Breakfasts were not very good.

Excellent stay!!!
I love African Rocks Hotel! I trusted the other reviews and they were right. The driver Kelvin who met us and the airport was wonderful, friendly and professional, the cook Christine was so welcoming and the food was excellent; it was like having a private chef! The hotel itself is lovely, serene, clean modern, and the perfect stop after a long transatlantic flight. Highly recommended.

Africian Rock
Stayed the evening before departing S.A. Found Africian Rock Hotel to be in a secure area; owners introduced themselves and welcomed us; all staff were obliging, helpful and friendly; great pickup/ drop off service for airport; Christine, the chef prepared an absolutely delicious 5 course meal. Would recommend.
