My room opened up onto the garden, and at the bottom of the garden is a river that burbles gently giving a really relaxed feel after a busy day. There is a lovely walk if you want some exercise, which I loved. The breakfasts are substantial and varied , I had three days and every day was a different breakfast... More

Awesome place in Jo'burg ... one of the most memorable place in my B&B stay. I stayed here for 8 weeks. Eight weeks, it wasn't a small duration outside of home especially when I am 100% vegetarian and family loving person.

Stay was very easy - arrival simple and efficient. Rooms clean and comfortable. Breakfast and departure also very efficient. Great for an overnight work related stay. Only negative (because i have to balance the review) is that some art or prints on the wall (in Garden room) would enhance it and make it a bit more colourful and homely)

This lodge is perfect for a couple nights stay in Joburg. It's in a peaceful location but you do have to wonder, when night security is employed to look after guests vehicles when the place is already surrounded by an electric fence in a gated community! Nonetheless, the room we had was large and comfortable, breakfast was great and the... More

The staff tried hard but this was a disappointment after our stay in Cape Town where for similar money the standards were much higher. Laundry for example was considerably more expensive than in CT.
