We booked for two nights at the Emerald in July (winter in South Africa) but after enduring an extremely cold and uncomfortable night in very basic conditions, we took the decision to leave and checked in to the much more comfortable hotel across the road. At this guesthouse, the comfort of the guests does not appear to be the main... More

The room was comfortable, but it was unfortunate that I had to vacate it by 1000, which meant I had a 6 hour wait at the airport for my flight. The dinner and breakfast were not good at all, which was very disappointing!

I have stayed here at least 5 times now as I pass through Jo'burg. The staff is super helpful and friendly. The rooms are clean and quiet. Nothing more you could really ask for. To top it all off the free breakfast in the morning is robust, diverse, and very delicious. I highly recommend this hotel.

We arrived here on 13 July quite late in the evening. The shuttle was at the airport to collect us as promised and the guesthouse was only about a five minute drive away. Check in was quick and the rooms were prefecture adequate. Not luxurious but clean and safe with everything you need, just a little cold (it was quite... More

Worst accommodation I have ever stayed in. Operates like a back packers Inn. No hot water and staff says it is due to another room opening their tap. No breakfast before 07:00. TV channel set by Guest House and you have no choice.

Our room was very clean. Breakfast was ample. We very, very close to the airport that made it super convenient for us. They had free shuttle service to Joburg airport. The value was excellent! The price of the room was very, very reasonable. I 'd stay here again.

The guesthouse is very popular with ex pats; it is comfortable albeit quite spartan in room apointments. The staff were very helpful, the meals were slightly below par, but the overall experience was one of value for money

Shuttle from Rhodesfield to guest house took almost an hour to arrive. This would have been okay if we hadn't been told on the two occasions I phoned to enquire as to its whereabouts that it would be there in "ten minutes". Room was spacious but so very cold. Were told that heating would come on at 19:30. This it... More

Very clean and tidy rooms. Nice mattress and enough blankets for very cold night. Helpfull and friendly staff. Beef stew almost not enough, but nice. Location excellent. Car could be parked in safe area.

Was picked up by shuttle at OT Airport and on arrival at the guest house received by friendly staff who quickly took me to my room. The room was small but clean and stocked with everything I would need. I was served with a tasty dinner and the next morning at 5 o'clock the shuttle was ready to take me... More
