“What a Peach”
Reviewed February 8, 2014 via mobile

This was our first visit to The Peech Hotel and it definitely won't be our last. The room was super, staff were extremely friendly, helpful and professional. The breakfast provided was outstanding! Thanks to all the staff for making it such a wonderful stay!

As Head of Exports for a large Chinese Company I stay in hotels 2 to 3 weeks a month and Trip Advisor is my Bible.

I study reviews and then make a reasoned choice...On this trip I tried at first to get into The Residence but it was full and after some scrolling came across the Peech.

This is a little gem of a boutique hotel near the upmarket Melrose Arch shopping and restaurant area so loads of local choice and ten minutes from Sandton City.

I was in in an upstairs chalet with balcony overlooking the pool and it was a lovely place to be after a hectic day... The quality of food would not shamed by the best restaurants and the staff are mega helpful.

I will definitely use this this Hotel again

Room Tip: Go for upstairs room in the chalets

This was our second visit to The Peech, and just as enjoyable as the first! We have family and friends in Johannesburg who met us at the hotel for dinner. Good location, easy drive from airport and plenty of secure parking. Friendly, polite & helpful staff. Very close to large shopping centre at Melrose Arch.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the gardens are very nice.

Great location. Staff is extraordinarily attentive, gracious and tireless. Spent five nights and even the most modest room is as comfortable as you'd find anywhere. Hip decoration bringing in strong African motifs. Restaurant is genuinely first class. Breakfast options are huge. Sandwiches at lunch are creative and great. Had dinner one night with a great bottle of wine for under $ 46,00 for two people. Best value in Joburg with all the other pluses. Easy to go on and on. Just book it if you can get in.
One negative. Be careful which taxi company comes for you. Make absolutely certain the driver knows where he's going and how to get there. Two no go great experiences. Driver bills hotel. If you have a problem, tell the hotel. They were super professional and deleted it from bill. No questions.
My new home away from home in Joburg.

Stayed a week ago on a business trip. This boutique hotel is excellent. Great staff, great vibe and lovely rooms. I travel extensively and stay in a mix of corporate and boutique hotels. This is up there with the very best. 2 areas of improvement, the evening meal I had was "ok" and could so easily have been much better just a bit more finesse, I you want to swim the pool is very small. Apart from that I really struggling to t of anything that wasn't great...praise from me indeed! value helped by the strong pound on the visit.

Room Tip: Ask for a first floor room if you can...but if they haven't got one don't be put off. Reall...

Really enjoyed our time at this Hotel. Well appointed with comfortable beds. Service was very good as was dinner and breakfasts. The area is in one of the better in Joburg. Wilro Tours (not on Trip Advisor) gave us a great day through the town, Apartheid Museum and Soweto. Recommended Hotel.

Pros: Gorgeous rooms with balcony (if you're upstairs), beautifully groomed premises, free breakfast, friendly staff, free parking, good location (close to several shopping malls where there are good restaurants), outdoor swimming pool (nice for dipping/sitting next to, but WAY too tiny to swim in).

Cons: Despite hanging the "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door, the staff went into our room and cleaned it - thankfully nothing was stolen, but we put the sign up for a reason and would have preferred if the cleaning staff respected our request.

They have a small selection of merchandise for sale in the lobby (eg. safari hat, water bottles); they are great quality and I'd highly recommend as souvenirs and/or gifts!

Overall, a great find and a place where I'd definitely stay again.
