GOOSEBERRY GUEST HOUSE
Enjoy a smooth transition form your own home to one which is inspired by luscious tree surroundings and stylish decor which generates a unique sense of "being at home"!
From the entrance with the personalized " Welcome" and mirror mosaic steps one enters a dreamland of colour,art, music into a mystical world which creates a feeling of fantasy and calm with angle figures luring around.
In the company of Susan Berry and the competent staff the pcture becomes complete and even though they are always available, you get the feeling of being "King/Queen of the Castle", enjoying all the comforts provided.
The wonderful flow of soft organza and lavish decor used in exciting ways, surrounded by artwork done by Susan, herself, creates a sense of "home-away-from -home".
Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom which is decorated in its own unique style.
The tranquility of the garden and its well kept swimmingpool gives the opportunity for meditation or enjoying the company of friends and family.
Breakfast is served in a special way where old time favourites becomes new. This revitalizes and excites - a wonderful way to start a new day! Don't be surprised to meet an Idol of 2!
It is ideally situated in the vicinity of the Cresta Shopping Centre.
This Guest House is waiting!
Enjoy!
Goodbye!

Located in a safe and quite place of Linden. The purple color that dominates the interior makes it look kingly. We found Susan and her staff very friendly continuosly making one feel at home away from home. The art work is also very good. Thank you Susan and staff.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Gooseberry Guest House. It is an experience that stimulates ones senses from the warm welcome, beautiful artistic interior, unique personal touches by the hostess, artist Susan Berry and the lovely south african cousine. I would recomend it to anyone that wants a real warm, unique south african experience. Lenchen Visser

I am a business professional person that travels extensively, with so much travelling you get tired of hotels and sometimes the impersonality of them. I was very lucky to find this gem amongst the trees.
At Gooseberry it is more like home style elegant living, the staff are very friendly and professional.
Each room has its own style and personality, clean and comfortable
It is top class living recommended to everyone; I have used Gooseberry for my family trips too.
