“Great base in Johannesburg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2011

Have stayed here twice and will continue to make it my base in Johannesburg. Comfortable, friendly, personal service from Marylin & Ron Tyler. Easy access to all of Johannesburg and good restaurants nearby.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the Cherry Tree bed and breakfast and recommend it to anyone that is traveling to or through Johannesburg. Highlights of my stay included:
- A warm, clean, comfortable room that was stocked with the amenities that I required as a business traveler (wireless internet access, coffee, a fridge, tv, and ironing supplies).
- Delicious breakfast options; I always left in the morning well-fueled for the rest of my day.
- Wonderful conversation with Marelyn and Ron. They have been in Johannesburg for a long time and are very familiar with the history, and key locations to visit, dine, etc.

Overall the Cherry Tree B&B was a great place to stay and I will definitely be returning when my business brings me back to South Africa! Ron and Marelyn are wonderful hosts that go out of their way to ensure comfort and customer satisfaction.

In these days where discerning travelers need an instantly caring home from home, to land in the room after a long flight and the fight through the traffic, was heaven sent.

The lush garden attached to the room afforded an extra luxury in this suburb of Johannesburg and to be wakened by the cries of the Hadeda birds every morning was amazing.

The venue is close to a variety of places to eat, shop and a little further the Cresta shopping Mall.

The bed was comfortable and the only gripe was the noise of the extractor fan in the bathroom - but then I did not spend a huge amount of time there!

Marelyn and Ron are a wonderful couple, who treat their guests like family. They have a great breakfast spread, and lots of stories to tell. This is a bed and breakfast so it is a basic no-frills service, but the rooms have high ceilings, an open patio in the back. There was a water fountain just outside my room, which was really soothing and comforting especially when taking afternoon naps. I'd highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a low-cost option for trips to Jo'berg!

Thank you very much for your warm and nice hospitality and kindness, Ron and Marelyn!
We returned back here safely, but we really missed you and your country... I would really recommend my friends to visit your lovely cottage. The cottage's security is arranged well as I could feel secure and comfortable. You helped us greatly... I will try to send our pictures to you soon. Hisashi told me he loved your cottage, too. Hope you could come to our country, Japan! Miss you! With hugs, Miho

This is in fact my third trip to Johannesburg and stay at the Cherry Tree .Johannesburg not thought off by the foreign visitor as a holiday destination,it more a stepping off place to other destinations in South Africa. Think again Johannesburg is a place that has a lot to offer many places to go. Cherry Tree Cottage Situated in the beatifull Northern Suburb of Linden is an ideal temporary base to tour Johannesburg.. The breakast in the morning is a good standard. Ron and Marelyn also give good touring and travel advice. about the city. Shuttle taxi service to and fro airport for non drivers like myself. In the evening you can order take aways from the order pamplets in your room.

we spent four nights at Cherry Tree during the World Cup 2010. The location is ok and the place is clean. The owner of the B&B is a miserable person. If you are not awake by 8 am you can expect that she will bang on your door to get you out of bed. The breakfast was awful....dry cereal, packaged muffins and bread. She gives the option of having one "steamed egg". The price of this B&B was more than double others in the area and half as good. Their recommendations to drivers are also not to be trusted as they are more than double the price of most drivers. This place would have ruined our trip had we spent additional nights here. I have never posted anything negative on tripadvisor but thought that some people should be made aware. We also spent time at OneSandra B&B and Sandton Slippers (both in the same vincinity). These two places are nicer, less expensive and much more friendly.
