We stayed at the Peech Hotel twice during a recent stay in South Africa, before and after a safari at the Tanda Tula lodge. The Peech is a small boutique hotel in the Melrose area of Johannesburg about a fifteen minute walk from Melrose Arch, a larger complex of shops restaurants and hotels. It is very close too to the Wanderers Stadium and sports complex.
The hotel has well manicured grounds and well appointed rooms that are perfectly comfortable and offer all the home comforts that you would need. There is also a small bistro at the hotel that we dined at once during our visit - food was good and priced in line with the local area. Breakfasts are good with a wide range of options on the menu.
There were only two small issues that arose during our visit that are worthy of mention; firstly I did not feel that some of the reception staff were particularly knowledgeable about the local area when seeking advice about reservations and booking etc, Secondly the hotel uses a firm of private hire vehicles when you ask for a taxi; in our experience these were more expensive than using metered taxis (180R for a return trip to Melrose) - if you are a limited budget then you might do well to remember this as metered taxis are not generally offered by the reception desk.
Other than the those two small points I would recommend the Peech Hotel for a stay in Jo'burg
