Comfortable rooms in a beautiful setting. Friendly, personal service and fantastic breakfasts. Close to vibrant cafes and restaurants. Off street parking available as well as various outside spaces for smokers. The owner and his wife are warm and hospitable. Definitely worth a return visit.

Bridge House is the definition of charming: two homes of antique-furnished, spacious rooms joined by a short bridge over a babbling river! Owners Kevin and Sandy are the best hosts and full of great suggestions for travel around the area. Kevin's home-cooked breakfasts are a delicious way to start each day. Bridge House is located in a quiet residential area,... More

Let the sound of water lull you to sleep in this tranquil, stunning setting on the river in the middle of Johannesburg. Kevin and Sandra are so welcoming and helpful and during my 5 night stay we became friends. The rooms are simply but tastefully decorated, very comfortable with underfloor heating and electric blankets. All rooms have beautiful views over... More

I had a wonderful stay at the Bridge House - what a beautiful home. Sandra and Kevin (the new owners) went out of their way to make me feel at home and although they do not usually serve dinner, at my request, went out of their way to cook me a fantastic evening meal. I wish I had been staying... More

We had a very comfortable stay at Bridge House; the breakfasts were luxurious and particularly memorable. The house and gardens are cozy and beautiful, and Kevin was a very kind, solicitous, and sociable host.

The best weekend get away I had in years. Kevin (the owner) went out of his way to make our stay ideal. The breakfasts were scrumptious. Love what the new owners have done to the place it truly deserves the 4 star rating. The Bridge House is my favourite place to stay when I am in Johannesburg.

By good fortune we came across this stunning spot right in the middle of Parkhurst. Having preconceived impressions of Jhb we were blown away that such a tranquil setting existed in the concrete jungle. Kevin was a tremendous host and made our stay something to remember. The rooms are very comfortable and the breakfasts special. Now that we have found... More

I spent one night at Bridge House at a time when I was facing immense personal distress having recently lost my husband. I found Kevin to be so kind and thoughtful and the perfect combination of engaging witout being intrusive. Kevin is a most empathetic person and was prepared to assist me in all ways possible. The breakfast was delicious,... More
