The Peech is good for a stop-over or a two/three night mini-break. Breakfasts, waiters, bathrooms...good. Piped music, lack of atmosphere in dining room (candles would help), prawns...not good. Upstairs rooms are best though those not so sure-of-foot might find the steep iron steps a little worrying. Hadeda birds wake you very early...amusing the first time! There is an excellent cafe/bistro... More

Thank you for your comments. You raise some issues that I will look into - especially those about our bistro - the candles and prawn quality. The hadedas are unfortunately a feature of the joburg landscape - love them or hate them! Kind regards, James Peech More

My husband and I stayed here for one night in June, 2011 at the start of a safari. The staff was very helpful and friendly and there is an onsite restaurant. We wanted something light to eat when arriving after traveling for 24 hours. Appetizers fit the bill. The staff had set up an electric radiator in our room and... More

With almost everything a tourist could ask for, ambiance, cleanliness, service, privacy, and plenty of space the Peech Hotel would almost add up to everything that we wanted. The only downfall that we discovered is that you cant have your own personal buffet of sweets in your room. My fiance and I went to JB's in Melrose Arch, and loaded... More

I am so sorry your cakes got taken over by our local ants. They have become quite adventurous! Tarryn, our General Manager, and I are waging war on them and we have a practical solution. Sorry this won't resuscitate your cakes but we are delighted the rest of your stay was good. If you do come back the cheesecakes on... More

This was my second extended stay at The Peech so it was a great opportunity to see whether it has stood the test of time. The answer is a resounding "YES". The owner (much in evidence every day) and the charming, efficient staff ensured that my expectations were met and my fond memories were re-confirmed. This time I stayed for... More

Stayed here with my wife whilst exploring SA. What can I say apart from fantastic boutique hotel. We met Mr Peech whilst we there, and what a lovely chap. He gave us some very good advice on wine choice, and also included us in a random wine tasting of some SA wines. The staff were very helpful in organising everything... More

We stayed for 3 nights at the end of our 2 week trip to South Africa. We were stopping in J'burg for longer than the typical tourist because we were seeing relatives there. The Peech is a very peaceful and comfortable boutique hotel. Far preferable for our family than a larger hotel. The grounds are beautiful. The restaurant is excellent--smart... More

We visit South Africa regularly as a family, often travelling through Johannesburg. The Peech was recommended to us, and on every visit has offered outstanding service as well as immaculate rooms. We love the tranquility it provides, yet that it manages to still be friendly and welcoming to our three children. Nothing is ever too much trouble, and the rooms... More

Myself and my new husband were not sure about stopping in Jo'burg as part of our final leg in SA because of the some cautious reviews we had read about the city as a whole. However, we were more than pleasantly surprised! The Peech Hotel was such a treat in a city that is underestimated in so many ways, we... More
