I stayed here in August 2011. The host, Annette, is very hospitable and ensures that you have everything that you need. The rooms are equipped with coffee making facilities. There was no heating facilities when I last visited, and it was pretty cold on one of those days. The breakfast is excellent! The host also dropped me at a nearby... More

We used Bit o' Bush on three separate occasions on our recent trip to South Africa. It's close proximity to OR Tambo airport being such an advantage. Annette and Peter are fantastic hosts, helping these hapless Australians with pick ups and drop offs to the airport, and great local knowledge re. eating and shopping. The rooms are clean and comfortable,... More

In my regular travels to Johannesburg I came across this little gem. Annette really goes the extra mile, and even though this is rated 3 star, the extras definitely impact - toiletry tray including shoe shine, clothes valet, plenty hanging space. The unit was also spotless and this is a major plus especially in the bathroom. It is close to... More

Made a last minute booking here after a late change of plans. Our delightful Hostess Annette could not have been more helpful or accommodating. A flawless stay from booking to departure. We were picked up late evening as arranged from airport, had a restful night in a very nicely appointed and spacious room, enjoyed a delicious and HUGE breakfast, before... More

This is how great the place is... I only stayed there for a 1 night layover and was quite impressed. The rooms are clean and the place is nice a quaint. Cool leafy atmosphere provided a wonderful nights sleep. The owner was extremely helpful as well!

Stayed two nights after arriving at OT Airport and before going on for a month's tour in SA. Ideal location five minutes from the airport and with pick up and drop off by Annette. Clean and tidy room with privacy in garden, lovely breakfast and helpful advice from Annette. Happy to stay there again when passing through.

We stayed at Bit o' bush overnight as our flight left early the next morning. Annette was a delight right from the booking to the transfer back to the airport the next morning. There were 4 of us arriving on different flights and Annette was helpful and accommodating. Our rooms were large, clean and good value. Guests were given a... More

We found Bit O' Bush on Trip Advisor and are so glad we decided to stay here for two nights on our way back to Tanzania from Cape Town and Durban. Annette is certainly in the right profession; she could not have been more helpful, ferrying us to nearby restaurants for dinner and setting us straight on the train to... More

We stayed in Bit O'Bush during our recent trip to South Africa for a night. We needed a place that near to O.R Tambo International Airport and man, we enjoyed it. We wish we could stay longer. Annette is very, VERY friendly. The room was very clean and the garden is beautiful! the breakfast prepared for us was immaculate! I... More
