5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

I stay at Margaret whenever in Johannesburg, and always excellent and friendly service at very reasonable prices, often at short notice. It is child-friendly, with beautiful garden and the DVD library is definitely a plus for kids! Just off R24 easily accessible to airport, major shops and highways.

The service was excellent, Margaret was very friendly and helpfull, my son even got to choose DVD's to watch, for FREE! The guesthouse is situated near garages and restaurants, and what I most liked was how safe it is to stay there, there is even a security guard on duty in the street at night! The apartment where we stayed was beautifull, and everything you need is there! Iwiil definitely use this guesthouse again!

i appreciated the familiar atmosphere, the nice chats with Margaret, the very uncomplicated way of dealing with every single request, very helpful attitude.
The quiet allows working, The pool refreshment...

The only thing which wasn't so comfortable: the room "Jabulani" was very small

Thank you for your honest review, Jabulani is a cosy compact unit, for an extended stay like yours a bigger unit may have been more suitable. Looking forward to seeing you again when you come to South Africa again, we would love you to stay in Mbali our latest addition!

Margaret feels like a friend from the minute you meet her. She is very hospitable and treats you like a personal guest. The rooms are very well kept and extremely comfortable. Tea, coffee, milk, towels, toiletries were all in full supply, and it felt like home for all the ten days we stayed there. Thank you Margaret!

Room Tip: We stayed in Khanyi which was very comfortable for three and the walk in dressing room was enviable!

For some reason I alwyas forget to write about Margarte`s Place. I stay there everytime I travel to Africa, sometimes at the beginning of the trip, others at the end. Its always so nice to come back there, Margaret always makes you feel welcome. Every time I know I can count on a friendly smiling face waiting for me at the airport.
The rooms (little flats really) have everything you might possibly need to be comfortable, excellent showers, great beds, everything spotless clean. And if you happen to need anything elese, Margaret is always ready to help.
Beautiful pool in case you feel like taking a swim.
The location is very quiet and close to Eastgate shopping mall. Also many restaurants nearby, petrol station, antiques shop, liquor store, etc.
Its is a perfect small and cozy stop over in a very big city.
Until next time Margaret!

Margaret's Place offers a great setup for the traveller - being able to feel at home. Especially as she offers self-catering units, instead of just a bedroom.
I enjoyed my stay and would definitely stay there again!
