We spent one night here after a very long trip with our 2 year old. We were allocated a whole house so had lots of space. However, it wasn't very clean and quite dated. Heating was controlled at the front office and was turned off early in the morning leaving us quite cold. The free shuttle bus was a big... More

We were met promptly at the airport by the guest house transport, and assisted with our luggage. We had a warm welcome at the guest house, and were shown to our rooms. The rooms were adequate and clean, and the welcome heater was switched on at 6pm, warming the room well. The new gas geyser system in the shower worked... More

My husband and I stayed over whilst waiting for a flight to Cape Town. The room had everything we needed and the linen was clean and the mattress good. The breakfast was also more than enough and the free shuttle service a bonus. I would recommend it to anyone wanting to stay over for just one night without paying an... More

Only stayed one night to make a flight connection next day. The close location to the airport and efficient shuttle service were big attractions. Room was comfortable and functional. Staff were friendly and helpful. It was a plus being able to have dinner there.

Very good breakfast. Room was very cold on arrival. No heating through the night. Bed mattress was comfortable. Due to coldness I suggest more carpeting in bathroom area. I suggest more sugar with coffee and tea.

This B&B has what you need fine service and okay lokation. The shuttle bus has a rotation of 30 min so there is not much waiting in the airport. Overall we are happy with choosing this B&B. The breakfast area was quit cold, we were there in June (african winter) and the place was clearly designed for the summer.

Things that would improve the gneral standard Bedroom cold, heating switched off before 22h00. Insufficient warm bedding,Shower head very small, No shower cap and the small amount of liquid soap inadequate. Most of the breakfast and coffee had to be re-heated in the microwave. Such a beautiful place and a few amendments would change it from average to excellent

Emerald Guest House was near airport, but not as close as we thought. Price was OK, but then we had to pay R200 more as there was 2 of us. It was not obvious on web site that I had only booked a double room for 1. Room was cold and we only found the extra blankets in the morning
