The room was fantastic. White linen which is a plus. Breakfast had a large selection. The property owner was really friendly and made sure we knew all the places to go in the area. One hundred percent MUST STAY!!!

Near the Witkoppenroad there is a wonderfull B&B. Large room, modern bathroom and everything is there what you need. Mr. and Mrs. Bassani are very friendly and we made a good conversation. With an excellent breakfast we opened the day in Lonehill, near MonteCasino and Lonehill Mall

Now let me start off by saying, I don't normally take time to write reviews.. We are a busy film team and have a very tight schedule. BUT because this guest house is so magical and welcoming, from the owner (sweet and lovely Frankie) to the rooms. So a review was must! From the moment our group of 4 entered...

This is really not worth the price. The only reason they charge so much is because of the location. The accommodations are not private, cramped and dated. Not sure if the proprietor was trying to be eccentric or amusing, however she just came over as unprofessional and condescending. If they charged R200/night, this would be a good deal, anything over...

Location to Montecasino is good. Not great value and the Owner is not that friendly. Units need attention. But if you need a Property that is close the Montecasino and these constructive details do not bother you. then you have found the right place...

I stayed here with a friend and this was a great spot to start our trip in South Africa. Frankie was very welcoming and informative. We had very nice breakfasts and our accomodations were very comfortable. Sorry we did not get a chance to take a dip in the little pool. We felt very secure there, but were a little...

Absolute guest house is not your typical guest house where the owners are on-site. If you prefer privacy and going your own thing you will feel at ease. The pool and patio are stunning at sunset and although the view is not that great you get a sense of the hustle and bustle of Gauteng

We decided to stay somewhere close to monte casino and came across the Absolute guesthouse. Nothing wow about the b&b. The room wasn't ready for us which meant that the bathroom hadn't been cleaned, the shower door didn't close and it was generally dusty. I guess it was sufficient enough for a nights sleep but most probably won't stay there...
