Very cosy place, breakfast lacked fruits and good bread. Room cleaned every day and fresh towels. Excellent laundry service if needed, and this came back ironed and folded perfectly. Friendly staff, beautiful and tranquil environment. If you come to Joburg, we definitely would stay there.

Privacy was not great. Fridge made a terrible noise switching on and off all night so I battled to sleep. In a gated estate, which is not clear in the ad and not in walking distance of Sandton city as advertised. Parking was difficult. 1 point for the free snacks and bottle of wine. 1 point for excellent Wi-fi connection.... More

We booked at Crystal Duvet as it was close to a function that we were attending. All in all a very pleasant stay with helpful staff. We left a pair of sunglasses behind and they were very helpful in making sure we got the glasses back.

Great for an over nighter. Especially room 1 with the very, very, small window. That aside, the room was great and comfortable. Breakfast room was airy and thinly decorated with soft music - would have preferred Bllomberg or other TV news programme this time of morning and could DEFINITELY have done without the miserable cat pooh on the floor!!!

Very neat and clean establishment, with friendly staff (and cat) to great you when you arrive. Ideal for those attending conference/training in the Sandton - Morningside Manor area. I also enjoyed that I could open up the sliding doors and walk into the garden, or have my morning coffee outside

On quite short notice I was looking for a guest house in Joburg. Luckily I found the Crsytal Duvet. It is situated in a calm area of Sandton but still not too far from where life is happening.

Breakfast was excellent. Enjoyed the complimentary small bottle of wine each evening. We recommend this small, luxurious guest house any day to any traveller. The owners very helpful and friendly. If we come back to Joburg, we definitely would stay there again. Anna&Andy from Ramstein/Germany

Pleasant stay, good service. Small but nice rooms. Only suggestion is that they find some form of back up for water cuts in the area. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Loved the two cats..........

Thank you for your feedback, unfortunately water and electricity cuts are a common ocurance in our area. Having said this we are in the process of adding on extra rooms and will put in alternate measures to ensure that when this happens in the future, the effect on you our guests is minimized. Many thanks, Donovan More
