“A quiet oasis”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

Very nice property, well located on the top of a hill in a residential yet accessible location.
Our room was very spacious and the bed, extremely comfortable.
Mmabatho, the head chef, who also acts as front desk manager, is a hidden gem both for her exquisite food and presentation and her unbelievable charm. She is truly the biggest asset of the hotel.
However, the other staff at the front desk needs to be trained and the carpet in the room, either replaced or thoroughly cleaned.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

ABSOLUTELY fantastic hotel. I stayed here for five nights in December, and I was extremely well taken care of. The food was great, and for those days I was out and working, Mbatho the very-talented chef packed me lunches to go. The amenities were lovely. It's a tranquil oasis in Joberg. Can't say enough about this. This hotel single-handedly makes me feel about coming back to Joburg for work in the future!

This place is really amazing, okay the room size is crazy, you can park a car!! Their front garden is the real attraction and you can sit under a tree and read a book and be lost in the view! The food is amazing, I do think the "amazing chef" needs help though with the administration stuff, she is responsible for the carrying the entire establishment, which means she disappears into the kitchen while creating her amazing meals, at times when you really need guidance about basic stuff, but no one is complaining, as guests seem to be happy to just hang in there, I don't think anyone minds really, they have thought of everything. They leave you alone, I love that, but a complete boutique hotel experience, with all meals provided for, you just need to order and she will blow you away with her meals. There was a group that came for a workshop during our stay and we never felt them and I dont think they felt us either, the tranquil of the space allowed for us to co-exist. I think this place really is amazing!! You even forget that you are in the busy Johannesburg surbub.

Room Tip: I was booked into Room 4, it had its own balcony so for a smoker, amazing!!

We were lucky enough to find an excellent late rate from one of the online sites. This is a 5 bedroomed house overlooking the lights of JBerg. Incredible! Amazing decor, lovely atmosphere, amazing comfy beds, aircon, fridge, landscaped gradens, pool, veg garden for kitchen.The best part - the incredible chef. For a very reasonable rate there were top class meals (the breakfast was divine) - there were always great veggie options. They serve alcohol at a very reasonable price. If you want a few days chilled in the lap of luxury, and are able to get it at a good price do not hesitate

Room Tip: The large room is enormous! Including a 2 person shower. The bathroom is the size of a small bedroom
