“Great situation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Stayed here for one night at the end of our south african trip. Needed a Sat Nav to find it but worth it. Lovely greeting from Richard who filled us in on everything we needed to know! Quaint house full of antiques and with a homely old fashion look but comfortable and breakfast was good. Its advantage is being in Melville which is a lovely lively suburb and the restaurants and bars are on the doorstep. Ate a wonderful meal in Lucky Bean just across the street.

This is a lovely B and B with very comfortable rooms, friendly staff and good breakfasts. It is two minutes to walk to Melville,s main street with all it's shops and cafes. My only criticism would be the trip we were sold to Soweto which was e pensive short and rather stuffy. Other than that an excellent stay.

I was part of the Deutche Welle team of international journalists that covered the 2010 FIFA World Cup. We stayed at Die Agterplaas for the who six week period. We had a very good time at the guest house whose meaning from Africaans to English we were told means 'The Backyard.' The staff is very friendly, the food is lovely. Badia is such a great chef. The rooms are very clean and homely. The guesthouse is near 7th street which is ideal for shopping and tasting several exotic cuisines. I recommend it to all visitors to the great city of Johannesburg

Room Tip: Higher floors have a better view and aeration

stayed here for most of our trip and it was great. clean, quiet, green and my ideal kine of hospitality - ie very helpful about anything, but not hovering. in a great location near good restaurants, bars and small shops. good buffet breakfast and the cheapest, fastest laundry service ever. the furniture in the rooms is kind of functional, and the lighting could be better, but overall an excellent place.

The highlight of this stay was that they arranged for an older black gentleman nicknamed Opa to show us around downtown Joburg and Soweto. He had lived through apartheid and the struggles of the 70s, 80s, and 90s. He took us to all the sights...Apartheid Museum, Desmond Tutu's church, Mandela's house, the sights in Soweto. The Band B is in the beautiful and charming suburb of Melville. The rooms are comfortable and quiet, breakfast was abundant, and we could do our laundry. We could walk to restaurants and shopping. They also provided airport pickup and return. I recommend very highly.

Die Agterplaas was a fantastic place to stay. My friend and I couldn't have asked for better hospitality. The rooms were so clean, and service was impeccable. Take their advice to have an escort if you want to go up to the street with shops and bars. The staircase leading up there is definitely a bit sketchy!
