Our family of 5 enjoyed our overnight stay with you! We especially loved the awesome breakfast! The room was immaculate and spacious. My husband and I appreciated the arrangement for coffee in our room. We look forward to revisiting your establishment the next time we are in Johannesburg.

A good B&B very close to the airport, with decent, clean rooms and a nice breakfast buffet. Friendly staff. The food/beer that you can purchase from reception is somewhat overpriced. Some plane noise.

I was happy with security and the staff working at the front desk. Cost of food is acceptable for South Africans. The breakfast pack was average. The bed was way too hard for my liking. Couldn't find the light for the bathroom.

The Emerald Guest House is very well located for travelers and is good value for money. The meals were generous and cheap. The staff were helpful. However my room was freezing cold and did not have a heater in the room. I was informed after complaining that the heating was controlled by the hotel and would not be turned on... More

Rooms are drafty and icecold (july 2014). No possibility to heat and no electric blankets. Breakfast is simple but ok. Is however served in a room with direct access to outside, is again icecold (coats on!). Not clean. Is ok for a one-night stay when coming from airport. Is nearby airport.

The wi-fi doesn't work at all in the rooms and the (hot) breakfast was (really) cold but everything else was good. I would go back anyway (given that the two issues mentioned are addressed).... oh, and they didn't come get me from the airport as planned. I had to call (twice) .... but it's honestly not that bad - ha... More

The stay was good but needs a little attention to smaller details in the rooms. People could be better informed at reception about the meal procedure. Meal not worth the money. I would stay there again but not eat there.

I am in love with this place. Only 5 mins from the airport, very reasonably priced, and connected by the hotel's (free) shuttles, it absolutely beats sleeping in the airport for a long layover! I make it a point to sleep here if I have an overnight layover or an otherwise short stay in Joburg. Given the fairly limited reach... More

This place has a very poor management, first this when you come at the gate, the gate is closed you have to come out of your care to ring the bell for them to open for you as a guest, that's. Wrong there is too much crime in South Africa for a visitor to be at the gate waiting. Secondly... More

As an overnight inn/lodge a 'nice place to stay'. Located on the other side of the airport runways the airport pickup was easy (on the other side of major airport hotel - ask for directions; airport info desk was willing to call -- ASK). Convenient, local and worth price for overnight stay. Did not use offered services beyond stay. Order... More
