“An Oasis in the Wilderness around OR Tambo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

A welcome clean friendly and reasonable lodge very well positioned for OR Tambo .
Swimming Pool food and very friendly staff help make this a desirable destination!
Marina and her husband and staff were extremely helpful in attending to my every need in preparing my vehicle and equipment for the forthcoming overland tour. especially lizzie in the kitchen...wow....

Room Tip: All rooms seemed very good. A weekend local wedding party was being celebrated whilst I was there!

After being delayed in 2 other accommodation places we were relocated to this beautiful haven in the back blocks of JBurg. Totally safe, beautiful gardens and decor and homely welcoming accommodation. Well worth our wait. The most friendly hosts and owners plus their pets. Highly recommended. 4 Aussies

Ok, here is the truth, it is far from the center. But the more important truth is that Marina is the best host you could get in South Africa. I have not met such a helpful amazing woman, and i have traveled a lot! This guesthouse is actually the home of Marina and her family, and they host you in one of the few rooms they have here. They make you feel home, they worry about you and make sure to satisfy all the needs you have, they make phones to arrange staff related to your visit, they transport you from one place to another, they bring milk if you ask for it, or take you to buy food if you don't have the power for dining outside, whatever you want they will arrange for you! In this large house, you can find several corners, such as a billiard room, kitchen, big garden with places to sit and have coffee or just read a book, there is even a large swimming pool. In summary, it is a peaceful nice place.So, if you have a car, there is absolutely not issue in picking Marina's place as the place to stay around JNB, however, if you depend on public transportation, then Marina or her husband, or their sun will be happy to drop you off at the train station/ airport or anywhere else. I highly recommend this place as the service here is exquisite and you won't gonna get such service anywhere else in JNB.

We found this manor by accident but this one night stay was remarkable! The lady of the house was friendly, very motherly and was very concerned about us after a night time incident on the the Jo'burg motorway. The next morning, the man of the house was equally shocked and concerned over the incident! This is a very warm and safe place to stay! I only wish I had time to use the beautiful, large pool!

Our stay at Malandela guesthouse will remain in our memories forever. Located in a beautiful old house in the middle of Joburg, Malandela offers a nice and different experience of the crowded city. The owner of the house are warm and charming people with an excellent ability for cooking. The rooms are furnished with love to the detail and one feels comfortable from the beginning on. A stay in this guesthouse is warmly recommended and will not dissapoint anybody.

My wife and I joined a large party of international guests staying at Malandela for a conference. We so enjoyed our stay. Marina and Danie are excellent hosts and nothing is too much trouble or their guests. It doesn't matter how many guests were around the breakfast table, Marina was unfussed and served us all so well with really excellent food.

It was so nice sitting on the veranda in the winter sun chatting and having lunch that we bought in.

The rooms are very comfortable and everything seems to be new and in perfect running order. Being very close to the main airport and in a beautiful large garden, we will definitely be back.

Room Tip: All the rooms are the same leading out onto a veranda, whether upstairs or downstairs.
