How lovely is it to be surrounded by people who want you to be as comfortable as possible. Being on a business trip with two colleagues/friends, we were carried on the Avondhu Guest House-family's hands. The staff are all very friendly and helpful, making one feel at home immediately. At Avondhu Guest House there are numerous activities to be preoccupied... More

This was my first time staying here and it was a delightful experience. The service is fantastic and the coffee delicious. The staff is very friendly and I immediately felt at home when we arrived. The security is very good and I felt safe the entire time I stayed here. Thank you very much.

I spent 8 months at Avondhu whilst on a project in Joburg,and can truthfully say this has been my favourite guest-house I have ever stayed in in the world! For a business exec on a long stay, the balance between informality and having the right facilities is perfect. The in-house help, the lovely Jamina was the icing on the cake... More

Thank you Tania, for looking after me during my stay. Your friendly morning spirit rubbed off on me.. It is not often that the owner has such a relaxed friendly presence. Your guest house speaks volumes of a homely place. Keep well. I will see you soon.

from the moment I arrived at Avondhu, i felt relaxed and at home. The garden, the pool and tennis court made me feel like I'm on holiday instead of a business trip. The staff are all so friendly and help-full. Nothing was to much. From silly requests to my laundry, everything got done. I loved my afternoons after all my... More
