For the businessman the very arterial roads of the country begin here. The Gautrain begins at the Park Station which is just a stones throw away if you use the Nelson Mandela fly over. Remember, if you're on an international flight and O R Tambo is a stopover we are an ideal in transit lay by and with easy access to:

My wife & I had an unforgettable experience in the well designed, well maintained, well managed Alcazaba Lodge's Honey Moon Suite. The entire staff & Phillip in particular were very professional in rendering their services to us. We sure have taken a concious decision to make Alcazaba Lodge our home away from home.

spent 6 nights in the Hotel and must confess that I had doubts about a Hotel in the area of Fordsburg, but it was absolutely phenomenal, your staff, more especially Boykey is an ambassador to your Hotel, he extends warmthto guests and his approach is very subtle and with great humility. I will with great confidence recommend your Hotelto whomever seeks accommodation.
