The room was more like a converted shed at the back of someone's garden. Worst hotel I have ever stayed in. All other South African hotels on a 2 week trip were great. Breakfast was a mess. Nothing left at 8:30am except dregs. No one really cared. The only good thing about the place was the lift out of there... More

This was the worst place I have ever stayed noisy, filthy & smelly. My family could not sleep whole night the place certainly not worth staying no matter it's close to the airport..... We did not even want to bathe in the bathroom and the smell had our stomach upset......

We stayed at this place for two nights in total - One on arrival into South Africa and one before our return. I was very disappointed with our room on the first night there was no room to swing a cat. When we showered it leaked out into the sleeping area under the wall making the floor very slippery. Very...

The hotel was cheap compared to some of the other ones in the area. I appreciated the free shuttle to and from the airport and the free breakfast; however, the breakfast food wasn't quite hot enough even though it was in warmers. The room was average. There was nothing very special about this hotel, but it wasn't bad.

Six of us stayed at the Emerald Guest House and would highly recommend it. The staff was very helpful, the rooms clean and the free breakfast was excellent. Easy access from the airport. I would definitely stay there again.

I am reluctantly leaving a bad review but when you have a bad experience and that is then compounded when an email complaint goes unanswered then this is what happens. We had advised the accommodation in a number of emails that we would not be arriving until after midnight due to a late flight. On arrival we were unable to... More

Easy access to airport (shuttle included) for quick stays and early departures. Proximity to airport means there is a bit of noise from runways. Centrally-controlled heat made for a very cold night in early September.

My stay was really terrible. Firstly I waited about 20 minutes to be checked in because the keys to my room could not be located. Secondly At supper I was told that I would have to pay for my supper as my voucher did not include supper, despite that the voucher said so. As if this wasa not enough I... More
