I have stayed with Arum Place before and can only recommend it. Very nice rooms, wonderful hosts and the most amazing breakfast. The doggies and cats add to the lovely atmosphere. Will sure return. Cheers from Botswana

Excellent Perfection is what we have experienced. Nothing was good because ALL was AMAZINGLY PERFECT. If one wants a break from S.A- this is the heaven to choose. No regrets but just beautiful memories

Let me start saying that the place is great. Is a big house with old style but everything is renewed. The room i got was bigger than my current apartment, with a balcony, wooden floor, big bathroom.

Breakfasts are to die for. The reason I have given this such a high... More

We could not been more satisfied. The owner went out of his way to be helpful, even driving us to a local restaurant, a neighborhood street fair, and the Soweto museum The breakfasts were tasty and the rooms attractively decorated We felt very comfortable there

Hosts were most gracious and exceedingly helpful. Located in Melville, a quiet suburb of Joberg. Host picked us up at airport. Got excellent feel for Joberg as a city and a society. It was a stop off place for trip to Botswana

Nice breakfast. Decent bed. Good location for business appointments. Wifi was reliable and a decent (for SA) speed. Would stay over for business again while in Johannesburg. Flat screen TV would have been nice.

We really enjoyed our stay, the room was very clean and cozy. Very good sized room and bathroom. Great breakfast, the owners are friendly and did everything to make our stay comfortable. The free beverages in our room and the lift to a restaurant was part of the great stay.
