Birchwood Hotel & OR Tambo Conference Centre was established in 1998 with 80 Accommodation Rooms and 1 Conference Venue. From these humbling beginnings, “Birchwood” underwent 4 phases of expansion and today boasts 665 accommodation rooms and 60 Conference Rooms (including 10 Banqueting Venues). Spanning over 46 acres of land, Birchwood is South Africa’s largest Independent Hotel & Conference Centre capable of hosting over 5 000 delegates on property at a time.

10 minutes from OR Tambo International Airport and easily accessible from 3 major highways, Birchwood is a conveniently located venue for all commuters. In addition to this, Birchwood also offers a complimentary scheduled shuttle service to and from the OR Tambo International Airport as well as the nearby East Rand Mall Shopping Centre.

For recreational activities, Birchwood Hotel is surrounded by numerous shopping attractions as well as 3 golf courses and a casino. More adventurous visitors will benefit from Top Shot Tours, the on-site tour operator who offer a variety of options including tours to Soweto, the Lion & Rhino Park as well as historical Monuments and Museums.

Whilst on the property however, there are a host of on-site facilities which include Squash Courts, 5-a-side Soccer Pitch, Gym, Spa and Swimming Pool. Guests can enjoy fine dining at The Local Grill (an upmarket steak house) or for something on lighter side, the Tazza Cafe's menu is able to accommodate most requests.
