“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

I stayed in this guest lodge for 2 days and I would definitely go back! Firstly, Estelle was terrific with making the arrangements. I was then picked up from the airport by the driver they had organised and even though my flight landed early, he was there waiting for me!

The guest lodge itself is very nice. I had a terrific room, with it's own little balcony! (It seemed to me like most rooms had this, although I'm not sure!) Entry is via your fingerprint, which is great if you don't want to carry a key/card with you all the time.

Breakfast is fantastic! I had to leave early but made it back by just after 9am, but they were still happy to serve me breakfast even though breakfast hours are actually only until 9am. The next morning, because I had to check out early, they made me a very nice breakfast pack to take along! Supper in the evenings were great as well!

I would go back to Amakoekoe in a heartbeat. If not for everything I just mentioned, then definitely for the cute doggies who greet you each time you walk into the reception area!

We went to Johannesburg for the first time to watch a concert at the Coco Cola Dome, so the location of the guest house was perfect for us and the staff were very welcoming and helpful when we needed help with directions and ordering a taxi. They were also very professional when I was booking. The rooms were very clean, we had everything we needed and they added some welcoming touch's with chocolates on the bed and a jar of biscuits and rusks with the coffee and tea. Breakfast was also great in the morning before our long drive home. The only small problem I had was low water pressure in the bathroom. The area you have to drive through and the entrance also made me a bit nervous but I was pleasantly surprised.
