I stayed with angie at the last minute when finding a short term home was looking impossible. Angie is an absolutely wonderful host. She genuinely is so caring and has an incredibly big heart. We had many a long chats about everything. I stayed in the smaller rooms for 2 months which was very comfortable. I was able to use... More

Angie's guesthouse was the perfect place for a business trip. She was very understanding when we changed dates several times. She also dealt with a big load of washing, which was very helpful. The breakfasts are good. The surroundings lovely. Recommend a stay! Thanks Angie!

Perfect location - 10 minutes from Sandton. Very convenient with 2 supermarkets at walking distance. And simply a safe and cozy place to stay with a huge garden. Very good quality price. Amazing breakfast!

Craighall Gardens is a wonderful bed and breakfast in Johannesburg. We had a clean, large room that led directly onto a cobble stone drive way and lovely garden. Very comfortable accommodation (nice bed, sofa, desk, immaculate bathroom attached. The room comes with small fridge, sink, kettle and toaster with tea, coffee and milk for the making).The guest house is situated... More

My husband and I stayed one night in Joburg and booked an overnight stay last minute. We tried the Waterfall Cottages but they were full and the owner highly recommended the Craighall House. Upon arrival, we felt incredibly safe and well cared for. Auriel was extremely hospitable and called a car hire for our stay, who we also ended up... More

Not sure what made the other reviewers experience better, but my friend and I definitely did not have a similar experience. It started with a terribly small room, even though we had reserved a larger room. The entire reservation process was terrible. It proved quite a challenge to simply give a credit card deposit when I was booking the room.... More

I stayed here between June 9th and June 13, 2010. Being smack in the middle of the World Cup the establishment was fully booked. Even though she had a packed house Angie was the most gracious of hosts giving personalized attention to each one of the groups. She asked us about our travel plans and made sure we had the... More
