“Peaceful!”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

I stayed here for a week in May 2014. Was a pleasant stay. The rooms are nice and big, and very neat. Great beds and fittings in each room. The owner, Susan, is very friendly and the breakfast is great. Can recommend this place to anyone.

Me, my wife and son stayed at African Silhouette Guest House for a function we had close by. Right from the booking stages Susan was an absolute pleasure to deal with. We found the rooms clean, luxurious and with all the minimum amenities one would expect, plus some more. Breakfast was good and at the time we requested. Really a pleasurable experience and would recomend to anyone requiring accomodation in the East Rand area.

The guesthouse epitomises a picturesque, quaint, serene escape where one simply forgets the busy life, does some introspection and gets lost in isolation. The owner, Susan is very hospitable and went out of her way to ensure that her guests were well catered for. One can't help but feel that the meals are prepared with love. I would definitely recommend this to those who seek uninterrupted time away.

What a beautifull peace of gem in the middle of Benoni. The staff and owners is amazing, and always makes you feel most welcomed. We booked in last minute, just before I was about to give birth to our daugter. I just had this gut feeling that she was going to be born the next day. So I phoned Susan and asked if she has a room for us, seeing that she was close to the hospital where we were suppose to go for the birth. We stayed the night, and the next day our beautifull little girl was born :) Susan was so helpfull, and opened up and helped out during the night when I felt I had to leave for the hospital.
She goes out of her way for you, and help as far as she can.
The guesthouse is so peacefull, really a piece of heaven.
Rooms are stunning, aswell as the gardens.
Thank you for a trully amazing experience, which will never be forgotten :)

Having stayed twice at African Silhouette Guest house in the last 6 months. I found it to be a peaceful tranquil hide away within easy reach of shopping centres, movies houses and restaurants. The owner Susan went out of her way to make sure my stay was like a holiday even though I was on a business trip. I would highly recommend this gem of a place to anyone looking for a place close to Johannesburg for business or holiday.Loved the breakfast and dinner in the boma.
Kind regards

We really like African Silhouette Guesthouse. The owner, Susan, is a super woman with a really kind attitude. She is there a lot, and is really attentive to everybody; the rooms are always serviced nicely, everything is really clean, and breakfast is always nice. For Mothers day we even had breakfast in bed after a long and cold night coming from the Bon Jovi Show 2013. African Silhouette Guesthouse has a really nice interior design, and it really is cozy! It's a fun atmosphere, and I highly recommend you stay there. Thank you so much, Susan, for a great, affordable stay!!!
