We were a little dubious about this quaint lodge since it is located in an industrial area with nothing around it. However, what a gem! The rooms were large and spacious; clean and comfy with all the necessities. The staff is excellent, accommodating, and couldn't be nicer. The grounds are beautiful, quiet, and serene. We loved it!

Stayed here inbound from Dar Es Salaam and onward to Singapore when the limited time meant convenience was my main priority. The hotel certainly fulfilled that requirement as its just a short journey to and from the airport. Armand the owner collected me from the airport the evening I arrived, very friendly and informative to talk with. The hotel did...

We stayed one night before leaving very early for a safari trip. The pros: 1. The ground look very nice, 2. They serve a very early breakfast which was what we needed. The cons: 1. The toilet is separated from the room only by a wall without a door. Feels strange. 2. We found the bed uncomfortable. 3. Staying in...

We booked into the establishment as a family when we travelled up to Johannesburg for a wedding. As always, welcomed with a smile by Armand and his staff. The rooms are beautifully decorated.

As always, booked into my favourite guesthouse when travelling for business. Greeted by friendly staff who actually remember you from a previous visit. Armand, the owner, is a jewel. Hands on, friendly and goes the extra mile for your comfort. The food as always, top notch. Cannot wait for my next stay.

Nestled in a lovely farm like enviroment, a short drive from the hustle and bustle of the city yet close to the Airport one finds this fantastic B+B.

I spent a longweekend at Avant Garde with my sister (a quadriplegic wheelchair user). Aside from one or 2 steps to navigate, (and a narrow path to the lapa), the facilities were comfortable and spacious. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and made our visit an absolute joy. And the proximity to the airport is a definite plus!
