We stayed here for 2 nights and were well cared for in this homey, clean and friendly place. Recommend highly for those looking for comfort and quiet while staying in the greater Johannesburg area. Airport transfer was also a welcome and surprising plus.

The rooms are very comfortable with lovely crisp white linen, such a nice sight after safari. Francois was very thoughtful in offering connecting rooms. We ate in on...

My friend and I stayed here for one night, before leaving for our safari in the Kruger. The place is in a great location, only about 15 min from the airport. It was great to relax after 28 hours in transit! My only issue was that when we arrived no one was there to really great us or show us...

Great spot. Convenient to the airport without being stuck in the airport. Francois welcomes everyone and make them feel as if this is their home even if only for a night. The property is beautiful. The rooms well appointed. Plus the WiFi works extremely well I am already back for my next stay and look forward to more visits

My family flew in from the US and was looking for a place close to the airport before we left for a game reserve the next morning. Francois, the owner, allowed us to check in early. The grounds and rooms are nice and the atmosphere is relaxed and warm. Breakfast the next morning was delicious with bottomless coffee! One of...

We stayed here upon our arrival to Johannesburg for two nights, and they were an absolutely fantastic welcome to South Africa! The host, Francois, was a wonderful host who made you feel like you were an old friend who came to visit. We stayed over the Easter weekend, and he got a bunch of adults to wander around the yard...

We made a late change to this hotel after our initial booking was less than satisfactory.
