“Hoopoe haven guest lodge 2013”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

First impressions very good. Pleasant gardens and pool although too cold for swimming at time of our visit but I am sure great for the summer. Owners were very pleasant and the staff were extremely helpful. Decor and bedding a little tired and the electrics were not working all the time and the hot water was a bit erratic. The dog kennels next door were a bit of a surprise and there was a lot of barking.

The room was very luxurious. The marital suit has a great shower.
It was very peaceful and the property is beautiful. I will definately go back for a longer stay. We had a lot of privacy and enjoyed the
entertainment, played pool and boardgames, very relaxing.

The accomodation is lovely and the bedroom superb. The bathroom is nice and big and the steam jet bath was the best. The only problem is that upon arrival and then next morning our room had no hot water. The staff was very friendly and did try to assist. We did manage to at least take a luke hot shower.
The breakfast was divine. Other than the hot water, no issues and i would recommend the guest house.

A lovely place for some peace and quiet in the Joburg suburbs, the cottage was peaceful and homely and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The setting was beautiful but it is a way from the center of Sandotn or the CBD, don't let this put you off unless all you want to do is visit Sandton City it is still close to the Montecasino and is very conveninent for travelling to Hartbeesport, Sun City or the other parks in the north.

I german and I spent my holiday in South Africa. Hoopoe Haven was my last stay- to relax before flying home. I recommend this GuestHouse for everyone who looks for aktivities in nature ( horse riding, motor bike, ice skating, free markets ). If you love travelling individual, never mention to wake up early and descide when preparing your own lunch or dinner, then you will l like it at hoopoe haven.
Well, because of the spread surroundings, neighbours holds dogs to protect their own. Dogs barks, and you can't say shout up... The staff is friendly and helpful, you can plan your daytrip with them. I avoid going into Johannesbourg city, the traffic is horrible. Close to Chatwell is Pretoria and Sandton, there goes the Gautrain to the Airport.
