“sunny and freindly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

from the moment I arrived at Avondhu, i felt relaxed and at home. The garden, the pool and tennis court made me feel like I'm on holiday instead of a business trip. The staff are all so friendly and help-full. Nothing was to much. From silly requests to my laundry, everything got done.
I loved my afternoons after all my meetings sitting outside having a glass of wine.
The breakfasts well what can i say, i really went to work with a full stomach not wanting
to eat the rest of the day.
Thank you to Avondhu for my memorable trip.

Room Tip: cottage 4 near the tennis court is sunny and lovely

Hi I would just like to thank all the people and particularly Steffi for making my stay at AVONDHU so pleasant and memorable. From the minute I arrived till the time I was driven to the airport by a very handsome driver George who behaved like a perfect gentleman my experience was top class. As a single lady staying at avondhu, I felt very safe and secure knowing that they have a 24 hour on- site guard plus many other security features that I would not like to disclose for obvious reasons. Thanks again guys

Room Tip: I had a fab room at the rear. very private and quiet

We decided to spend a few days in jhb before driving up to Kruger Park.As we don't know jhb very well we decided to heed the advice my wife had received from a friend who had recently stayed at what she described as the best guesthouse she has ever had the pleasure of visiting, So we arrive hot and bothered from our long trip and were warmly greeted by delightful Steffi and her team. We settled into our very stunning rooms,My wife and I in one and adjoining ours were the teenage kids.We all jumped into the lovely sparkling pool to cool of.That evening we went out for dinner in Rosebank wich is close by and newly completed.Breakfasts were great and wholesome.A big variety of cereals, fruits, cheese,yougurt,muffins etc,Also of course eggs mushrooms bacon bangers toast and a wide selection of twining teas and an assortment of quality coffees.We had a great few days exploring the local attractions,The awesome jhb zoo the war museum to name but a few.We had a great time at avondhu and an even better time at Kruger,Give it try u wont be disappointed. kind regards the forbes family.

Room Tip: We recommend the self contained cottages at the rear whith theyre own private gardens

Hi my name is Frick van Tonder and I just want to say a few words about this fantasties gashuis.Sorry but English is not my first language so please bear whith me. I am up here in jhb for a meeting on a Friday and also on that Monday.So now what to do for the weekend? I was close to Rosebank Mall and the owners took me there to shop and visit a restaurant. That afternoon me and another guest were so happy when George the owner and his lovely wife Tanya made for us a lekker braai and we all watched the Rugby in the big lounge on the big screen instead of alone in my room. Next time we come to jhb I will bring my family whith. thanks everybody also steff and her staff,Food and everything was great.

Room Tip: my room was very well equipped and also very private

I finally got to stay at AVONDHU . From the minute I was picked up in a fab new spacious luxury shuttle until such time that I was re deposited at OR Tambo my stay was nothing but sheer pleasure and indulgence.From the great food to the comfy bed and friendly warm service nothing was to much trouble for Steffi and her team.Sad to leave but happy that i experienced such a great guest house.Won't stay anywhere else when i come back to jhb.XXX

Room Tip: Rooms are all well appointed and my choice is cottage no2
