Second time around and we love this place. Worm welcome, beautiful and comfortable rooms, great breakfast – what else one need? Free wifi, free Nespresso, lovely pool and a smooth tennis court that is great for the 3 wheels scooter that my boys can’t stop riding. It is very close to Rosebank and The Zone, which makes it a perfect... More

Best BnB I have ever stayed in. The owners are terrific, friendly and welcoming. The staff are warm and helpful. The BnB is beautiful and relaxing, a real home away from home experience, something everyone else promises but very rarely delivers. Breakfast is really great. I will definitely stay there again, it was an absolute treat! Oh, and its child... More

My room is smallish, as is the en-suite. Not much space for clothes, drawers are available but don't work smoothly so I'd rather not use them. No tissues in the room, only toilet paper in the bathroom, none of the table lamps have plugs/are plugged in so I had to get out of bed to go to the room door... More

My first time staying at Avondhu. The one thing that stands out is top notch, friendly service. My room was comfortable... Johannesburg is cold this time of year and the room catered for it with heaters and warm bedding.
