What an amazing place - I've now been back 3 times with superb experiences on each occasion. Hyde Park is a safe place (by Johannesburg standards), virtually next door to the British Consulate with a Fournos Bakery down the road. Bougain Villa has a relaxed garden with pool, tennis courts and patio to have breakfast or afternoon tea. The rooms are spaceous and comfortable. Sandton and RoseBank mall are close by and there's cricket at Wanderers Ground within walking distance.
