“Stale and very average”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2012

Stayed here for 2 nights. The rooms were quite small and the smell of smoke was everywhere. A divider was all that seperated the room from the bathroom. The carpets were dirty. There was an old style 80's TV with dodgy reception. In all fairness though, they did say that they did say they were going to renovate though. There was no wireless internet as advertised. When i queried this it was said to me that the provider was unreliable. I did get some internet every now and then though.

The owner is a very nice person and tries her best but the pictures on their website at this stage does not match reality. I stress "at this stage" as the may be renovating

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2010

This family run guest house is in the northern suburbs of Joburg. Leafy streets with flowering Jacarandas, and a fine view from several of the rooms out across towards the city. Nothing is too much trouble for these guys, with the whole family pitching in to make your stay a comfortable one. I had early and late starts but breakfast was always there and I slept like a baby every night. Although I was travelling alone this time I would definately come back here with my family, the small pool would keep the kids happy for sure. You are best staying here with your own transport as public transport is difficult. Having said that, the driver that works with them, Isaac, is a wonderful reliable driver with an encyclopedic knowledge of Joburg and South Africa in general.
Evening meals can be arranged on request.
