This is the best bed and breakfast lodge I have stayed in, there was consistently great service throughout my stay. The rooms are very well decorated, complete with TV and fridge, it is just emaculate.

I have actually stayed at the guesthouse for a few months where my room was separate from the main house itself and was private but also really cosy. The owners are absolutely helpful and kind and go out of their way should you request or require anything! The location is also situated quite perfectly and everything is quite easily accessible....

I can only assume the good comments are from people who have never stayed or thr hotels owners cos this place is utter kak. The decor is the most hideous I've ever seen, the staff stayed up yeling outside our room til after 11pm despite the fact they could see we have a toddler and right now, 6am, I'm woken... More

I arrived in Jo'burg with all the trepidation that I've always felt, having previously used it as a springboard to other parts of SA. I have been treated very well here indeed! Selected the location based on it's proximity to The Campus, and because I was looking for an apartment nearby. Nothing has been too much trouble, the staff have... More

Service was average. Communications not so good. Bed slept very nice. This accommodation is probably ok for the not to big spender. I will definitely try and book somewhere else next time. Good Luck !

Rude receptionist and TV blaring away full blast at reception ALL THE TIME. When one walks into the establishment it smells like a Chinese restaurant kitchen. This smell carries you all the way through to your room. In the room, carpets and chairs are grimy. Check both pillows and find several long black hairs - as if someone already lives... More

I don't know in good conscience you can advertise this place. It was disgusting. Late check in, stuck outside the gate, and worse of all was the noise made by the manager herself and the rest of the staff right outside the room. I didn't even stay the second night as the accommodation not that they even noticed or called... More

Thank you - I enjoyed my stay. I had more than enough space to work and could complete the work I set out to do without being bogged down with to little working space. Parking was easy to use and breakfast was excellent. All in all good value for money! Will be visiting again one of these days.
