I have stayed here before and was awed again by the great service and hospitality shown by the owner. The property and rooms are in a great condition. I found the location very convenient for transfers to and from the airport. Will definitely stay here again!

We stayed here on and off three times during our three weeks in South Africa. House of York became our home away from home in Jo’burg. Gavin was extremely welcoming and made us feel like special guests, and his staff are lovely and always had a smile upon greeting. The garden cabins are terrific rooms – and the room we... More

I am a conference organiser and recently checked my delegates in. The reception my guests received when i went to drop them, it was like they were known by the staff there for years and were welcomed as if they had just got back home. My 6 guests loved their stay and will opt as first choice accommodation when they... More

Chose it because of its location near our offices. Excellent service, cosy environment and good value for money. Lots of restaurants and small shops within walking distance. Area well known for its Antique shops. More satellite channels and modern CV gym machines would have made the stay excellent.

The owner Mr.Gavin Smith and his staff are very friendly and they offer excellent catering. Other things you can look forward to is free... More

For our first time in S.A and travelling with 3 boys this guest house had all we needed. A hearty breakfast kept us going for the day and the team of staff were always willing to help and very friendly. The laundry service is an unexpected bonus! The location is close to the CBD and a major shopping centre for... More
