Could not have wished for a better place to stay.Sandy was a delightful host and could not have been more helpful. She gave us a great breakfast to set us up for the day. Free wifi and secure car park

I tripped over this B&B as I was looking for something in Kempton Park and Edenvale, as I have friends and family in the area.
Sandy the owner is friendly, knows tons of things you could do, is friendly and the place is really nice. I had the lion room and slept like a baby. You have all you need for a B&B. Breakfast is good, I liked her coffee, some people did not seem to like it, radiator in the room, as we do have winter and the nights where cold, that is Jo'burg winter.
If you only stop over or stay longer, it is good value for money!
For me there was one small problem, anyone longer than 1,90m will have some minor problems with the length of the bes. That is normal in South Africa. Had the same issue in the hotel in Durban ;-)

We stayed here prior to an organised tour. We arrived at the airport after an overnight flight to find our taxi waiting for us.(arranged through Sandy). A short drive to the accommodation and were greeted by Sandy who immediately showed us our room with an inviting kingsize bed. It was a pleasantly warm day so we were able to sit in the room with the doors open and in the garden to chill and recover after our trip. In the evening we ordered from a local takeaway recommended by our host,Sandy and ate in the outside lounge area chatting to her. In the morning we had a wonderful cooked breakfast before departing on our tour. We had only been gone a few hours when the cleaner found my spectacles I had unwittingly left behind. She rang our guide and we collected them on our return (fortunately I had a spare pair).
This was a lovely relaxing start to our holiday.

I had an enjoyable stay at the Big 5. Sandy and family are fantastic hosts. The ensuite room was of high quality, breakfast excellent, plenty of beers available, close to Jo'burg airport - what more could you want!

A big thank you to Sandy! You made our first night in South Africa a comfortable one, especially after about 24 hours flying and in airports! It was nice to have such great acccommodations with friendly service and a great breakfast! I think I speak for all of the UWSP Wildlife Ecology students when I say that Big 5 Accommodation was a great place! Thanks again!
