Visiting Johannesburg for a one-night stand (to attend a wedding) can be stressful for laid-back Capetonians. How reassuring to find affordable accommodation in a central suburb with all the amenities a traveler could want - and then some! Although we arrived late at night, the security check-in at the gate was both professional and welcoming. The room was more than adequate (MUCH more spacious than 4-star hotels in Europe, South America or Thailand), with an en suite bathroom (shower and bath), large balcony and HUGE, comfortable bed. The breakfast was delicious and Sue's warm conversation made us feel like we are old family acquaintances. While we waited to be collected, she hospitably fed us great coffee and muffins. And of course, the real owner, Sooty, did his best to keep us on the couch for him to lie on our laps.
