We stayed here overnight at the beginning and end of our two week South African holiday. Food and service were great especially the hospitality on Christmas Day. The pool was out of action when we returned due to renovation but should be fantastic now. Gardens and fire pit were lovely but rooms had no air conditioning. Conveniently located near to... More

Convenient and welcoming base if your business is around Kempton Park or as a stop over. It is close to the airport and easy to find. My (budget) room was comfortable with everything one needs including a cup of tea. Nice fruits for breakfast! Safe parking available.

There were 2 owners..the guy was kind of aggressive and he misunderstood our breakfast order and got it mixed up and said that it was our mistake. I guess he was getting late as he had to go somewhere but... More

As one of the owners of Journey’s Inn Africa and the so called “a little aggressive person” I do have a response to this clients report. She mentioned that they arrived late at the lodge, well 02h15 on Christmas morning is very late, most other lodges would not even accept such a booking to accommodate guests. At 06h10 she was...

The rooms are spacious, clean and the level of service was exceptional. They have generators in case there's no electricity. The area is quiet and nice for relaxing and there's privacy. Overall, great value for money

After a 28 hours flight, it was good to spend time around the pool in a relaxing atmosphere. The staff are very friendly, the service is great and the rooms are clean. The diner is delicious and my girlfriend particully liked the confort of the bed (jetlag)... A good place to rest after a long flight !

My husband and I booked one night at LA Guesthouse to recover from a gruelling 15 hour flight from New York, and were totally happy. LA Guesthouse provided easy-to-follow driving directions from OR Tambo Airport, which took maybe 15 minutes. Despite us arriving early, the receptionist Monique was super friendly and efficient and soon had us settled into our room.... More
