Reviewed May 5, 2013

I stayed at this guesthouse for the first time this year. Karen and her staff really do make this place a home away from home. I could not be more emphatic about how much I enjoyed myself here at uxolo.

Room Tip: stayed in the room closest to the guesthouse entrance. it was lovely.

Thoroughly enjoyed all aspects of my three-day, two-night stay at the Uxolo Guesthouse. When we were arrived, we were greeted by Karen, the general manager, and Rabson, who manages the house. They made us instantly feel at home and helped us coordinate both our dinner for the evening and our tourism for the duration of our stay. The staff was attentive, professional, and friendly; the room was beautifully kempt and spacious; and, free WiFi and breakfast were excellent perks. Highly recommend.

We spend 2 nights at the Guest House for a quick stopover in Jo'Burg at the end of 2 weeks in South Africa. Rooms are very intimate, well-decorated, clean, and well taken care of. Karen, the general manager, spent time welcoming us to the house, showing us around, and giving us tips on what to visit in the area, and Rabson, who manages the house, is very friendly and useful. Breakfast included was lovely in the breakfast terrace. Free WiFi is also a huge perk.

Our four night stay at Uxolo could not have been better. All the staff were exceptional and were so kind and helpful. Karen, the owner, went out of her way to help us to settle into the area. (Around the corner from the guesthouse is the most awesome Indian restaurant - an absolute must.) Uxolo is conveniently situated in a quiet suburb, The Gardens, but is so close to the malls and all the action. Our rooms were wonderful with the most comfortable beds and the best showers. Breakfast was delicious. We will definitely be back next year.

i always look for off the beaten path places when i am out of the usa, and uxolo worked well for me. it is quiet and in a calm and peaceful neighborhood which is a must in bustling joburg. above all the staff were very attentive and helpful and were able to make me comfortable in every way imaginable. i loved every minute of my stay.

While we only stayed at Uxolo for one night, it was a great experience. The room was comfortable, well maintained, and quiet. The food was delicious and had a nice variety. The best part of the entire stay was the staff - they are terrific. Very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again!

We LOVED our stay at Uxolo, located in a quiet and quaint neighborhood in The Gardens area of suburban Johannesburg. Karen, the proprietor could not have been nicer and the staff were all kind and helpful!! The price was so reasonable and the accommodations so delightful that we would go out of our way to stay here again!! And don't forget the delicious breakfast and lovely grounds!!!

Room Tip: Book in advance as they stay busy!!!
