“basic, clean guest house”
Reviewed December 17, 2012

I stayed a few times in Old Umtali now and I keep returning. Why? I just need a room which is clean and central located. This Guest House does provide that!

The room is small, but big enough and supplies you with all you need. The furniture is a bit outdated and the bathroom tiny. The DSTV channels are more than you get in other guest houses and the breakfast is great.

Ask Terry, the owner if you need anything. He is very helpful.

Room Tip: Basic, clean and central located guest house with small rooms.

Reviewed November 10, 2012

I booked my stay here on the recommendation of a friend, mostly due to its central location in the Joburg Northern suburbs and good access to the freeway. My room was very small, especially the bathroom. The room fittings were ok, not great but not too bad. The TV was tiny with a poor picture, I got the impression that it was really only there to tick a box on the sales brochure. There is free internet though, so that made up for the poor TV. The food was ok, once again nothing special. On the plus side the manager is friendly and helpful so if you need local information he would be able to give good advice. So all in all not a bad option for a night but certainly nothing special to recommend it either.

Recommend this guest house if you need to stay in Jo'burg. Very secure, good location (near Montecasino), beautiful private room, tasty breakfast and a very warm welcome! Only stayed one night on my travels but would definitely go back if I'm in the area again.
