“Wonderful”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

The warm welcome we received was exceptional. The rooms were wonderful and were tastefully furnished, great attention to detail.The room we had was very luxurious indeed, and had a private terrace on which I enjoyed the sun for hours!

Jacques and the staff were helpful and friendly. I will be back again soon!

I had such a wonderful stay at the Village Green Guest House!

The garden that surrounds the house has clearly been lovingly tendered for many years and provides a place for relaxation and reflection. The décor is elegant and yet it still manages to exude a very homely feel for the weary traveller.

I found the staff to be super friendly and very helpful. The facilities were also superb as it catered sufficiently for the needs of business people and holiday makers alike, providing free wireless and braai and swimming facilities.

I look forward to slipping under the soft duvet covers and waking up to a yummy breakfast again!

Thank you to all involved!

Room Tip: I loved the Palm room, its doors open out onto the garden, which you can look at from your bed.

This is the first stop that was made when I reached South Africa. It was beautiful. The rooms are nicely appointed and each one appears to be different. My room faced the courtyard and pool and almost next door to the kitchen where you could order what you wanted and have it cooked to your specifications. The host and help were excellent in helping you. It is also located up the street from the Zoo park lake and a few shops and restaurants. You are enclosed behind a wall (like most of the homes and B&Bs were) but when you stepped out it became lively. We walked down to the lake which was about 2 to 3 blocks down. It was peaceful and serene. I was enchanted by the atmosphere of the rooms and courtyard. I loved waking up to the sunlight streaming into my room through the french doors and windows. I would definitely go back to this one.

Room Tip: My room was on the west side of the building and had french doors that led directly to the courtyard...

A group of us stayed for a family wedding and we were all very happy with our accomodation. Breakfasts were very good with fresh fruit salad, yoghurts, cereals and a cooked "English" breakfast. Each room had tea/coffee making facilities and a fridge with milk supplied. Staff were very willing to lend plates and cutlery for us to make a picnic lunch to eat on the premises and as the shops were a five minute walk this was easy to arrange. A little further away was the Zoo Park with a boating lake to saunter round.

On site it was pleasant to sit by the pool although in mid March the water was pretty cool.
Jacques, the manager arranged taxis to places of interest and ascertained the cost beforehand. On the day of my departure as no-one was booked into my room I was given the use of it until late afternoon.

I would be very happy to return.

Room Tip: Prices vary between rooms, all are pleasant but "Rose" is the largest.

Village Green was recommended by a friend who lives near-by. We were booked in here for 2 nights but stayed a third. It was so comfortable and at the end of our 3 weeks it was too nice to leave for another day of driving! Our room is the one in the picture. It is huge. There's a lovely sitting area and a large bath and French doors to the charming garden with several seating areas. Breakfasts are large and beautifully cooked to order and the mini frig comes stocked with waters and soft drinks at no charge!The little cache of delectable shortbread is not to be missed! The housekeepers are friendly and helpful,especially Demarise, who got the spots out of our laundry and ironed the shorts!

The neighborhood is charming and quiet with handy stores and restaurants a block away. We drove to the the Apartheid Museum and the Sunday craft Market with no problem. The neighborhood is not central but is beautiful and safe, very near the zoo and a lovely park.

Room Tip: The Rose room is very large and special.

My husband and I stayed here the last night of our trip through South Africa and couldn't have been happier with our choice! We arrived and were told that we had been upgraded to a bigger room, which was absolutely lovely. The two women who tended to breakfast were so nice, as was the manager, Jacques. The neighborhood was cute, and there were a couple of restaurants right in walking distance. Jacques was able to help us hire a driver to take us around town (to the apartheid museum, etc) and the price was much more reasonable than it would have been to hire a taxi off the street. We would definitely return to Village Green and would recommend it to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in Jo'burg!
