Very friendly reception and care throughout, spacious, clean room, quiet, good wifi, and service from delivery for dinner well organised. Although I arrived without notice, Margaret was most welcoming and made the stay a pleasure. The assistance to provide a cereal for breakfast was highly appreciated. I can recommend staying. 2 wonderful standard poodles too.

After staying briefly in April, I returned for 10 days with my four legged friend. Margret is very friendly and welcoming and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anybody. The rooms are spacious and cleaned daily, an extensive DVD library with player and TV in each room. Several malls are nearby and local shops a short walk around the corner.... More

Margaret's Place has been exactly what I needed. I'm in a stressful situation, being far from my home (Thabazimbi, Limpopo Province) in order to visit my Mum who is in hospital in Linksfield. I needed to bring work along with me, and because of the wifi and space in the room, was able to do a surprising amount of work.... More

Margaret's Place is a great place to be. The host was friendly. The Jabulani room was perfect and clean. I mean it was great value for my money. There was much tranquility. The lodge is rightly situated and close to entertainment places and shopping areas.

This review is not about Margaret's Place, but about travelers looking for that extra attention to detail in accommodation that equals the "aaaah" feeling when one usually returns home again. Aside from the manicured garden, sparkling heated pool and spotlessly clean and beautiful "feel at home" rooms that make one feel immediately comfortable, the finer touches at Margaret's Place are...
