Birchwood Hotel and OR Tambo Conference Centre was founded in 1998 by Brian and Kevin Clarence as an 87 room business travel hotel. Success brought exponential growth and Birchwood ventured into the conferencing market. Now Birchwood arguably boasts the largest conference facility in the Southern Hemisphere.
Kevin’s father (the late Brian Clarence) lived by the motto: “Look after your staff and they will look after you”. This approach is continually propagated by Kevin amongst his staff, along with vision and ability to listen and adapt to a changing economy and new market needs.
The brands SIlverbirch @ Birchwood and Valustay @ Birchwood are 2 fresh brands in the Birchwood stable that embody this approach and are proving popular. SIlverbirch considers the needs of the discerning business traveller, needing a peaceful, upmarket stay with excellent business facilities and personal service, while Valustay @ Birchwood offers unsurpassed value for travellers and groups on a tighter budget.
Our 665 rooms in Birchwood, Silverbirch and ValuStay, mean we can accommodate the largest of conference groups. Added to your experience is our selection of restaurants, evening entertainment and recreational facilities, including a gym, spa, splash pool and squash courts.
The entire Birchwood complex has been designed to give guests all they could possibly require in one place at one of the most convenient locations in South Africa for local and international business.
