The staff was very friendly. The room was cold but I guess that is what you get in winter in SA. The room was very average. If you would like a relatively inexpensive room close to the airport this guest house is fine.

The Emerald Guest House provides reliable transportation, friendly service, decent accommodation, and big hearty breakfast all at a very affordable price. I have stayed with them half-a-dozen times and will continue to stay there when I travel in southern Africa.

the guest house was clean and close to the airport, with the shuttle service working well. a no frills affair with the heater being turned off by something late at night, so the morning getting up was freezing. no working light in kitchen and no doors on rooms.

A very good place to stay one night before your departure, very close to the airport and with a free shuttle. Nice staff. Large family room with comfortable beds. One point to ameliorate: The food could be better!...

Me, the wife and two year old checked in after a long flight and liked the fact we had a whole house to our selves. Needs a lick of paint but for the price we were happy. Heating could have been turned on in the morning but there was hot water and an awesome breakfast in the dining room.

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
