this is a clean place, with friendly staff, picturesque gardens, great facilities and good security. What a pleasure compared to the fleabag on "28 Grant avenue, Norwood", for the same price. This facility is great value for money and I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at this place 4 weeks long. The staff is friendly. The area where the guest house is situated is nice, safe an close to the Norwood Mall an it takes only 15 min by car to get to Sandton. Inside of the Garden Place there are 2 beautiful swimming pools.

After staying there many times over the years, we did not get the room that we had specifically requested and been promised and ended up in a room where the neighbors were noisy and we were disturbed by people using the metal stairs alongside the room. The owner treated our complaint with disdain. In addition, the breakfast and wi fi... More

I would recommend the Garden Place to any travellers wishing to stay in Johannesburg. We stayed in a self-contained cottage for almost 6 weeks. The gardens are beautiful, the location is private and quiet, and the cottage was well appointed and maintained. Above all else we found the Management and Staff at Garden Place to be friendly and service orientated... More

This place is beautiful. If you're looking for somewhere peaceful and quiet to stay, it's perfect. A fifteen minute walk from the local mall, and a five minute walk from the active (yet apparently dangerous) area Yoville, Garden Place is located in Norwood. It's challenging describing this location to people- but that's because the surrounding burbs are so quiet, that... More

This place is not at all what they advertise. Not at all luxury. The room I stayed in was filthy, the shower was disgusting the carpets were dirty and the room furniture was outdated. This place compare to 2 star accommodation - rip off!!

The food was average, the staff was new and they had a power cut due to construction that no resident was informed about! we only stayed a day and would probably not do it again. The rooms were nice and secure, but not worth it. Special shout out to the driver Abbe who was extremely helpful and took us wherever... More

It was a lovely stay, perfect for a family event. Pitty breakfast was not included We were a few ppl who wanted to be close, it was just fine, and the people at the lobby were very hospitable It would have been great if some more kitchen utensils would have been available like salt etc

The overall experience of hosting a conference (as well as international guests in the accommodation) was superb. The staff was friendly, patient, approachable and always helpful. The conference ran smoothly and was aided by the great venues and beautiful outdoor spaces. The conference was about societal innovation and Garden Place provides the environment for innovation to flourish. The food and... More

We stayed in Garden Place for a month, we chose self-catering because we were staying longer term, and we got to feel quite at home there. The owner is kind and helpful, the staff are ALL really friendly and professional and nothing is too much trouble. A great plus is that there is a free shuttle bus provided with driver... More
