We arrived from London and went directly to this very comfortable B&B for the first three nights. The room as very comfortable with all the requisite amenities including a fridge. 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

I recently did a 5 day training course at the local fti and this B&B made the perfect place to stay over, because it is within walking distance (15 mins walk) from the training facility. Not only that but the hosts were fantastic, food excellent and the place wonderfully clean and well run. Everything you needed was supplied. Halfway between... More

My father and I needed a place to stay while visiting my mother who was in the Sunninghill hospital. I received a very friendly, warm reception from the owner, Nicky. I booked and paid for 1 twin room but Nicky put my father in a separate room as the twin beds had been made up as a king bed. The... More

It was a lovely experience. Very friendly environment and helpful stuff. The room was great and well equipped. Maybe a blow heater would be a good option in winter, though I did sleep well. The breakfast was worthwhile and good quality.

Thank you for the feedback, it is always so valuable to us. It is encouraging that you found the room well equipped. I note the blow heater request, they do heat really quickly but I'm nervous that they dry the air out, we have opted for wall panel heaters and oil fin heaters. Judith will be delighted that you enjoyed... More

A very lovely and welcoming family home - yet entirely private and secluded. Charming rooms with garden - home from home - or the perfect sanctuary for some time away from the office to get that paper written without interruption !! Judith is an absolute darling and wonderful host
