This was our second visit to The Peech, and just as enjoyable as the first! We have family and friends in Johannesburg who met us at the hotel for dinner. Good location, easy drive from airport and plenty of secure parking. Friendly, polite & helpful staff. Very close to large shopping centre at Melrose Arch.

Great location. Staff is extraordinarily attentive, gracious and tireless. Spent five nights and even the most modest room is as comfortable as you'd find anywhere. Hip decoration bringing in strong African motifs. Restaurant is genuinely first class. Breakfast options are huge. Sandwiches at lunch are creative and great. Had dinner one night with a great bottle of wine for under... More

Stayed a week ago on a business trip. This boutique hotel is excellent. Great staff, great vibe and lovely rooms. I travel extensively and stay in a mix of corporate and boutique hotels. This is up there with the very best. 2 areas of improvement, the evening meal I had was "ok" and could so easily have been much better... More

Really enjoyed our time at this Hotel. Well appointed with comfortable beds. Service was very good as was dinner and breakfasts. The area is in one of the better in Joburg. Wilro Tours (not on Trip Advisor) gave us a great day through the town, Apartheid Museum and Soweto. Recommended Hotel.

Pros: Gorgeous rooms with balcony (if you're upstairs), beautifully groomed premises, free breakfast, friendly staff, free parking, good location (close to several shopping malls where there are good restaurants), outdoor swimming pool (nice for dipping/sitting next to, but WAY too tiny to swim in).

In my attempt to find a pace to stay in Joburg I couldn't have been more confused. The Peech Hotel is great value for money with clean and well maintained rooms and extremely helpful and accommodating staff. It's conveniently located 10mins from the Sandton train station from where you can get the Gautrain to and fro the airport. I'll stay... More

Walking into the Peech after almost a week of staying in large business hotels was a tremendous relief. The website and the other reviews here sum it up very nicely. Nothing feels cramped, everything is well thought out, friendly and comfortable. My bed was large, enticing and very comfortable. Ladies: a good hair dryer here is a welcome change from... More
