Reviewed March 7, 2014

We enjoyed 2 nights at this small boutique hotel. The entire staff is truly welcoming and friendly. As it was our first time in the city the staff arranged for a half day private tour of the city on very short notice. The hotel itself is in a residential area which is not busy at all so if you want quiet this the place for you. The room was very large, as was the bathroom and had all the modern facilities and conveniences. Set in a lovely well-maintained garden, the hotel is a contemporary design and fits well into the suburban area. We ate at the restaurant several times and very much enjoyed the great service and the food of a high standard. Since it is a small hotel, the restaurant does not have an extensive menu. Breakfast was buffet style and hot dishes could also be ordered.

While security at the hotel is very high, there are few people walking about in the area and very little to see within walking distance. The hotel is more than a 30 minute drive from either the downtown area or the airport and a rental car or taxi is definitely the only reliable transportation. A nice spot for guests who are in transit and need a good rest before moving on to the next destination.

Very well run establishment. Great staff and well appointed rooms. Have stayed in many guest houses and small hotels in Johannesburg and this is by far the best in it's segment. Will most certainly be back.

The best place where to stay if you love the nature, the silence, the clean and nice atmosphere of a well designed boutique hotel. The rooms are big and nice, the bathroom has all the necessary confort that you need, the staff is very kind and helpful, the garden is well conducted and has also a small swimming pool. The restaurant is very good, everything is fresh and well presented, the wine list is varied and rich, the service very kind. The hotel is located in Rosebank a very calm area closed to shopping mall and restaurant. Also the driver are not very expensive and they try to arrange what you need....You can also use the fittness which is closed to the hotel, a very big gym with a huge swimming pool and a lot of indoor activities. I tryed also the massage that the staff suggested and it was just WOW...The best place...It is like a home away home.
Such a pity to leave!!!!!

Room Tip: All the rooms are nice

We chose the Peech Hotel because of its' high ranking on Trip Advisor and we were not disappointed. It is located in a very good neighborhood and a safe area of Johannesburg which was of the utmost importance to us because we had heard about having to be careful with crime in Johannesburg. The hotel has a security gate that can only be opened from the front desk. The hotel was cozy, with a chic decor and gardens with the very pleasant smell of many flowers. The air conditioning is located in an area of the bedroom that cools perfectly without blowing directly on you.
Although the menu is limited, the food was very good. The hotel staff (particularly Nishka and Nicole) were very friendly and helpful.
We were there for tourism and we took the recommended tour of Johannesburg with a private car. Although it was very informative, we would have preferred to concentrate less in Soweto.
We would highly recommend the hotel...

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.
