I just want to say thank u to all the fantastic people at avondhu guest house.for the wonderfull stay. My husband was treated at rosebank clinic on a week long outpaitient basis.Everyday we were transported to and from rosebank clinic. it was 5 minutes away from the guest house and I even went shopping in the mall nearby.Staying at the guest house was so much more affordable and also a lot of fun.Food was great and rooms so nice and also clean.We will be back for sure.

Room Tip: rooms on the top floor were nice and sunny

Due to yet another power out due I believe to be cable theft in our area I had to make last minute arrangements to accommodate friends that were due to stay whith us for a week.I managed to book them into Avondhu guest house at short notice. They only stayed for one night but experienced wonderful hospitality and a great breakfast.They were raving about the place and asked me to thank stephany and her wonderfull staff for making the stay one of the best experiences ever in Johannesburg.Truly a home from home.Highly recommended. veronica israelstam.

Room Tip: "Double Suite at the back of the mansion is fab"

Is it possible that one can have a more luxurious and pleasant stay anywhere in South Africa but at Avondhu Guest House?
My stay at Avondhu was one of the best accommodation experiences of my life. The tranquil and very luxurious setting, spacious and fully equipped rooms, most delicious menu ever and friendly and professional staff made my trip to Johannesburg not only enjoyable beyond imagination, but also created the ideal atmosphere to relax after a tough and exhausting day of meetings in a strange city.
The owner, Tania, and her team made me feel like the guest of honour, which contributed to my overall super experience. I will not only recommend Avondhu to everyone looking for the ultimate stay in Johannesburg, I will make sure that I arrange trips for myself to Johannesburg again and again, just to be a guest at Avondhu. No hotel or guest house I have ever stayed in comes close to what this beautiful and breath taking place has to offer.
Thank you Avondhu, for making a very stressful trip one of the best experiences of my life. If you want value for money, Avondhu is it.

Room Tip: Speak to the manager Tania about your needs, she is extremely helpful and pleasant to work with.

Really fabulous!!This is one of the establishments that looks picture perfect in a brochure and on internet, and when you show up, it actually looks even better than the pictures.We stayed there for a week and it was a truly wonderful place to stay and the hostess Steffi made it such an enjoyable memory! They strive to make all requests perfect upon arrival. Steffi greeted us, promptly showed us the beautiful grounds and our room - wonderful, friendly hostess. The rooms are quiet, gorgeous, bright and impeccably clean. Rooms are large enough to feel yourself comfortable even for a long stay and really spotlessly clean with a super comfortable bed. The grounds are absolutely lovely! Gardens and pool are beautiful and well maintained. I would like to mention that every detail and every corner of the interiors are built with love and perfect taste. The Avondhu team are very nice people with a very gentle character of hospitality. Food absolutely delicious - do try the pancakes! Just love Avondhu and would recommend it to anyone! And not to forget their great location - close to Sandton. See you next time Avondhu and thank you for such a great memorable stay!

Room Tip: Just speak to the hostess the really do go the extra mile to assist.

I stayed at Avondhu Guest House for three nights and this was certainly my best stay at a Guest House. With a warm welcoming from Steffi I felt home straight away. The rooms are luxurious and extremely neat. After my warm rest I was overwhelmed the next morning being served with a wonderful breakfast . I was treated like an golden piece in the city of gold and certainly can not wait for my next visit.

Thank you very much Helene,

I loved our little chats while sitting in the afternoon sun by the pool. I do hope that your studies are going well in the windy city.
And hopefully the wind blows you back our way.

Thank you

I recently booked into avondhu on the spur of the moment.I had a business meeting the following day.i was promptly picked up at the airport in avondhu's fab new luxury bus and deposited in what can only be described as a magnificent mansion in a well established leafy suburb. I immediately noticed that the security inside and outside the place was top notch. 24/7 CAP patrols as well as other security personel and dedicated guards. Breakfast was great service and attention to detail perfect.All in all a great stay in a homely atmosphere.HIGHLY RECOMENDED

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet room no 2 was great
