The tranquil and very luxurious setting, spacious and fully equipped rooms, most delicious menu ever and friendly and professional staff made my trip to... More

I immediately noticed that the security inside and outside the place... More

I have used Avondhu as a base for number of visits to South Africa and can with great happiness and comfort say that Stephanie and team has maintained the superb service provided by Dea and Paddy. The location, rooms, breakfast and service all excellent. Still the best spot in Jhb for a late afternoon braai! Will be back!
