About Dakota Lodge

To experience the Dakota Lodge is to experience the ambience of an old bygone era, but with the facilities of modern life. The Dakota Lodge is the first guesthouse establishment at the Rand Airport and the first in South Africa with an aviation theme, specifically to honour the venerable Douglas DC-3, DAKOTA.

Conveniently situated at Rand Airport, the Dakota Lodge offers 24 en-suite rooms. Each room features a historic aviation theme with a beautiful view, from the Johannesburg downtown area in the west, to the Suikerbostrand area in the south. Situated only 20 minutes from OR Tambo International Airport, the Dakota Lodge is only ten minutes away from the Bedford Centre in Bedford View and 15 minutes away from the well-known Eastgate Shopping Centre. Freeways in all directions are easily accessible from Rand Airport.

Apart from the many famous restaurants in the area, the now famous Harvard Restaurant is only 50 m away from the the Dakota Lodge. The Harvard Restaurant offers a wide variety of food, ranging from traditional South African food to pastas, including some of the best pizzas to be found anywhere. Enjoy your meal in the open-air area at the Harvard Restaurant whilst watching the aircrafts moving around the airport.

                          Comfortable and spacious room. Iverall well lit and nice well lit desk area to crack open laptop. Poor water delivery from Municipality resulting in no/liw water pressure and cold shower water during prak usage time which is not acceptable.

                          A very different venue, with excellently appointed room(s) - I only saw inside mine! A bit more expensive than the other rooms I have used but well worth the extra. No evening meal was not an issue as there is the excellent Harvard just round the corner. (Is there a bit of a theme here?) The breakfast was also very good.
