I had the worst experience at this B&B, seriously what kind of B & B has crappy WiFi??? and the were spider webs in the cupboards, and the bathroom was dirty, it is clear that the place had not been cleaned in a very long time. the stuff is not friendly when one needs assistance.

We are very thankful for the rain,... due to the fortune that every Room of The Wedgwood except 3, has direct access to a private outdoor space, it is true that the odd spider might wonder off-route...if it is reported, we catch and release our crawly friends. The only reason why a room is not cleaned is, if a Guest... More

I stayed at B&B The Wedgewood in November while attending two conferences - one at the same place and the other at Wits University. The food was lovely and the staff were very kind to me and my colleagues. The only problem was the erratic internet connection but I hope they have since worked on it. The owner of the... More

My stay here was an 'okay stay because everything was good until the last day. The place has a home cosy like feel to it and that's what makes it great. The food is simple but tasty. It's all home made. Lots of pie. I had tonnes of coffee daily and it all tasted great. Breakfast is served rather early... More

Thank you for taking the time, to write about your experience. Feedback is very important to us at The Wedgwood.

I stayed in quarters across the road from the main guesthouse - also part of the venue. We had an unusually large, spacious room with lots of character. Lovely wooden floor, pretty French door frames. The bathroom however is in desperate need of attention and an update. Looks like it's been at least 30 years since it was updated. The... More

The Wedgwood is an excellent guest house. The only surprise I had over a two week stay was the splendid facility, large rooms, and bucolic surroundings. The management and staff are all highly competent, courteous, and pay special attention to the comfort and safety of guests without any instrusiveness. Having stayed at a nearby guest house in Melville, I was... More

Johannesburg is a complicated place, but the Wedgwood is easy. We were just there for a week and everything was extremely comfortable and pleasant. The rooms vary in size and splendor -- one of my group was in a vast apartment, another in a small hotel-ish room - but they are all very nice. Jakes and the staff are welcoming,... More

We had a booking at a guest house in Melville. Upon arrival I knew that the chances of actually sleeping there was very slim. Feeling tired after a whole morning on the road working, we followed the GPS route to the next location. The next b&b (wich has a rating on this site) was even a bigger disaster. The next... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on Our Guest House.
