excellent décor throughout with high quality bathroom and linen, Friendly hosts and nice and clean. The location is in a quiet street within easy access of Sandton, Rivonia and Four ways. Will stay again when next in the area.

What a lovely place to stay, the only down side was that the wi-fi did not work in the evenings, but excellent service, beautiful rooms and a lovely setting, would highly recommend to all. property is secluded and security excellent.

Although the room was small, it had absolutely everything required for a comfortable stay. The quality of the linen and towels was superb and everything was fresh and clean. Attention to detail amazing, including fresh roses etc. Breakfast was an impressive affair - EVERYTHING you could possibly want. I will definitely recommend this establishment.

Very friendly staff, nothing too much trouble. Our twin room was clean and well equipped, the bathroom was huge and the beds very comfortable. The very enjoyable breakfast set us up for the day. The location at the end of a residential cul-de-sac was quiet with plenty of shops and restaurants a short drive away. We didn't use the swimming... More

Comfortable, homely, warm, inviting and topped with an amazing breakfast. Rooms are lovely and clean, with all you need for a comfortable stay (microwave, fridge, tea/coffee/hot chocolate and rusks, cutlery, crockery), completed with a memorable breakfast to start the day, making it a home away from home.

Comfortable and large room with good bathroom. Open your window and you are part of a peaceful garden with the sound of birds chirping away only interrupted by the fish in the pond sploshing. Your soul gets recharged here!

Whilst our room did not have a bath the shower was very good. Shops and restaurants are just a ten minute stroll. Gill serves a wonderful breakfast, her omelettes are... More

I recently relocated to Johannesburg from Cape Town, but prior to the move this was my favourite guest house in the area. It is about three minutes from the Rivonia Road highway interchange, which makes it very convenient to wherever you would want to go. The property is quiet, safe, the rooms are well-appointed, and they have REAL coffee!! The... More
