Okay if you just want to sleep over and leave in the morning... Very basic, but you pay for what you get. However, I slept well, and had a good shower. Same breakfast every day. The dinner was great. Had two curry meals, and enjoyed it! Will probably do it again.

Was just there for a night, thank God. I arrived in the evening, It was raining and freezing cold. So yeah, there was no WIFI. I asked the lady, probably the owner, she said there's nothing she could because it was raining. Smh.. No heater- I had to use 4 layers of blanket to sleep but still very cold. No...

I was surprised that Emerald Gust House (Airport Inn B&B) deducted the money for the stay there immediately after the reservation has been made. Nevertheless, the establishment was near OR Tambo Airport, and offered a free shuttle service between the guesthouse and the airport, especially as our flight was scheduled for landing after midnight. Confirming the details of the arrival...

The pre-stay communication was very good. On arrival and during my stay the staff was very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed a good breakfast, the room was quite and i rested well. I will return when the opportunity arises.

Much more than I expected, I felt welcome from the time the shuttle picked me up at the Airport. The room was clean and book in staff very helpful. The breakfast was nice warm and enough. The shuttle service ran on time. For the next trip up to JHB Emerald would be my first choice.

this was a last minute booking and your rates are what attracted us. The place is very clean and safe, would definitely stay there again. The breakfast was superb and the Airport shuttle service was excellent.

Dont rely on their wifi, you will struggle running whatsapp. The pictures are misleading I would say, only a few rooms look like advertised. My room was pretty ugly, which is ok, if you advertise ugly, but that was definitely not what was shown. The curtains in the bathroom are see-through so its a nice little show for anyone walking...
