We had a wonderful stay as a family at Margaret's place, the unit was spotlessly clean and every amenity was provided, nothing was too much trouble, the unit was serviced daily, Margaret is so warm and welcoming and we will definitely go back!

We stayed at Margaret's Place & Joburg for just 2 nights. The 2 rooms were comfortable & clean & my son enjoyed the pool. Margaret transferred us to & from the airport AND kindly picked us up on one evening from the mall as we were unable to find any taxis, which may have had something to do with the... More

We stayed in Margaret's Place just last week and I couldn't be more impressed by the service and the area they have. First of all, I would like to thank the owner Margaret for being so accommodating to us and even letting us have a parking space prior to the date we were booking. What a lovely individual! She offered... More

I'm very happy that I choose Margaret's Place for a short stay with my girlfriend in Johannesburg. We had a great time there. The hospitality of Margaret is fantastic. I can recommend it to everyone who wants to stay at a nice place in Johannesburg for business trips or holidays.

We stayed at Margaret's place over multiple nights - after trips to Kruger and Vic Falls. They have a very reasonable rate for airport pick up. The room had electric blankets on the bed which was a nice touch in the cold of Jo'berg. The eating options nearby are sparse without a car - but there is a few options... More

Very friendly reception and care throughout, spacious, clean room, quiet, good wifi, and service from delivery for dinner well organised. Although I arrived without notice, Margaret was most welcoming and made the stay a pleasure. The assistance to provide a cereal for breakfast was highly appreciated. I can recommend staying. 2 wonderful standard poodles too.

After staying briefly in April, I returned for 10 days with my four legged friend. Margret is very friendly and welcoming and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anybody. The rooms are spacious and cleaned daily, an extensive DVD library with player and TV in each room. Several malls are nearby and local shops a short walk around the corner.... More
