“Nice break from the buzz”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

The staff was very helpful and friendly my entire stay. The room was great for the low prize and the breakfast in the morning was good selection. The grounds are beautiful and calm and helps you relax after a busy day.

Things to improve, the wifi speed was a little slow and the last night of my stay a wedding was held at the venue, so there was constantly people around the room making a noise and the music in the background.

Will I go back for a second trip – definitely

Room Tip: Ask for a room opening up to the pool and garden.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2012

I stayed here for a week. It was generally nice, and the breakfast was excellent, but there are a few shortcomings. I'll start with the good: The rooms were clean and generally comfortable. As mentioned earlier, the breakfast was very good (if you like an English breakfast). The locations is near a few businesses, and may be easy to be around to find a spot to eat, shop, work, etc.The staff were all very friendly, although the maid was a bit militant to clean my room at 10AM (after a night of long drinking, I did not want to get up - she insisted she had to clean the room now).

The bad: The rooms were basic and lacked details that make a place "nice" to stay in. I did not have heating in my room (a colleague had a heater in his room, but the bathroom window did not shut all the way - negating much of the heater). Like some other smaller B&B's the place is dead after dark, so if you want something (meal, drink, service) you may be out of luck. My power went out for a day, but I was moved in to a nicer room after several attempts to fix the lights failed.

Over all: Not a bad place to stay. I would say that if the location, price, and availability work out in your favor, go for it. Otherwise, you may be better off doing a little more homework on a place to stay in Joburg.

A very good option for business travelers- rooms are spacious, breakfast is good and the staff great!! Arrived late ( 11 pm) and the kitchen was closed but the manager Gordon had no issues in making me a snack- great service!!

Well done guys!
