It was excellent! Many privacy and very friendly hosts. Separate entrance, which was great cause I had an emergency and came back on 2 am but I didn't have to disturb nobody. Nice breakfast. I want to come back again.

It is a lovely safe spot with friendly people. You feel welcome and do NOT feel as if you are in someone else's house. Great breakfast. It is so easy to access highways from there. Each room has a little table and chairs outside and it is so much nicer spending time there than sitting in a hotel room. Parking within metres from the rooms.

Stayed here twice for a total of 4 nights in September 2013. Was a bit hesitant to stay at a bed & breakfast initially, as I prefer hotels. Needn't have worried - this place was great. Room (Lion Room) was massive and spotless, breakfast delicious, location good and Sandy...... well, Sandy is just marvelous. Wonderfull, wonderfull host. When next in Johannesburg, will omly stay here again. Even if my business is on the other side of town !

Thank you Sandy and team.

The service great, Sandy the perfect host just one small niggle the bed was uncomfortable and we should have gone for separate beds which was our fault but that's a problem all 70 year olds have, love you Sandy thank you, will definitely be using your big 5 again again

I stayed at Big 5 for eleven nights in July 2013. It was my first time in South Africa and the folks at Big 5 took excellent care of me. The room was comfortable. The breakfast service was delicious. The shuttle service Big 5 partners with got me to and from work the first week I was there and also ran me on personal errands after work. Sandy at Big 5 was very knowledgeable about the Johannesburg area and had good suggestions about what I could do with my free time. Definitely recommend!

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
