My husband and I stayed here for 1 night before flying out to the Seychelles. This hotel is small and stylish. The service is superb and the food of a great quality.We ate in the hotel restaurant and would thoroughly recommend it. The rooms are clean, and modern with all the amenities you would need. The reception area offers some... More

We booked The Peech because of its proximity to the Wanderers test match ground. It was a fabulous location, in a really pleasant area with several nearby cafes and shops. The rooms were a good size with an excellent bathroom and all were very clean. The service was good and staff tried very hard to make sure that our stay... More

We stayed for one night in November as an alternative to the hotels we stay at when we're in Jo'burg for work. We had a warm welcome (once we worked out how to get the taxi through the gate!!!) and our room was lovely (if a little dark). The rooms are a really good size, huge bathroom, molton brown toiletries... More

We came here for an overnight stop before flying to Hoedspruit. It's not central, but we didn't need that. The rooms are lovely with nice touches like Molton Brown toiletries. We ate both dinner and breakfast here and were delighted with both. It's everything a boutique hotel should be.

The strength of this hotel is that all the rooms are on a garden, which is nice change from a typical city hotel. Good location in Melrose. The rooms are large and the common areas well designed. I ate dinner at the hotel twice - the food was a little shaky (overcooked one night) though it's an interesting, albeit limited,... More

Thank you for reviewing us. I have noted your comments about both our WiFi - we are about 8 weeks away from getting an upgraded fibre line at 100mbps - and our pool and bistro service. We are attending to the restaurant at the moment and will be opening a second pool in about a month as we have purchased... More

We spent two weeks traveling South Africa and our travel agent arranged for us to spend a night at The Peech for our flight back to the US. We protested it because we had heard so many negative things about Joburg, but when we got to the Peech we were so glad we listened to our travel agent! After a... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The rooms were well appointed and quite large, the grounds were immaculate and included a raucous ibis which I thought was neat, and the hotel had a small pool, free wifi, and a small, bu nice outdoor cafe area. The staff were incredibly flexible with check-in. We arrived at I think 1000 and weren't... More

I have traveled all over the world from the best hotels to Air BnB and whilst I didn't connect entirely with JNB, I have to say I would probably make an excuse to come back again because of the couple days at the Peech. The staff is probably what stands out most in this extremely well kept hotel. Oscar and... More

We absolutely LOVED our room at the Peech hotel. It was spacious, modern, ultra-clean, impeccably designed, cozy, with a view of the beautiful grounds. Room included complimentary water, coffee and tea, and snacks for purchase, as well as air conditioning, TV with plenty of movie channels, nice spacious bathroom with a shower and bath tub, large bed, hanging chair and...

We arrived late and left early but the staff was very accommodating. They kept the kitchen open late and the food was fantastic. Rooms are great but the AC is a bit underpowered. Beautiful grounds, nice bathrooms, great food, and great staff. Wish we could have stayed a bit longer.

I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay. We have actually had other comments about the temperatures in the rooms, so you are not alone - we are unfortunately in the middle of an unusually hot and dry season here (the hottest in the eleven years the hotel has been open) and are addressing what we can do.
