“Retired airline employee - I fly standby and got stuck in JNB airport”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

thank goodness I found this wonderful B&B - it was close to the airport, reasonable - in a nice, safe area - the night manager (Christo) picked me up, offered me dinner and took great care of me - stayed there 2 nights until I could get a flight back to the states. You can walk to restaurants/grocery store. I will definitely stay here again when I visit S. Africa!

Room Tip: Only some of the rooms have air conditioning - ask for one if you want to keep the noise level down...

had a wonderful stay at this hotel. arrived at JNB at 5.30pm and reached the hotel at 7.30pm. The room was ready and it was nice and cozy. the breakfast in the morning was nice and fulfilling. would definitely stay again. only one complain, the fan in my room was very noisy.

Thanks to Welna, Werner and Mariette for a warm and wonderful stay. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend Africa Footprints. Very comfortable accommodation and lovely gardens with pool area for relaxing. Generous buffet breakfast, Evening meal can be arranged-we did and thorougly enjoyed it. That mushroom soup was delicious. Return airport transfers definately a plus! thanks for organising the trip with Filamont to the Aparthied Museum and short trip aroundJohannesburg. Hope to come back and see you again before too long.

This really great guesthouse is 15 minutes from OR Tambo. they provide pick up and drop off. there is shopping near the guesthouse. African Footprints has beautiful grounds and delicious home cooked food. not to mention there is a full bar and TV lounge. Small, nice, pool.
Best about this guesthouse is the owner and staff. Great South AFrican hospitality.
Must purchase internet.

overall this is one of my favorate places to stay and catch up on business in all of South Africa

Room Tip: Just ask Wilna

We stayed here after arriving in Jo'burg late and as we were exhausted, it was fab to come in to a lovely place where we got picked up from the airport and taken past a take away food shop cos we were hungry.

Welna checked us in and showed us to our room where everything was perfect. I had ordered chocs, rose petals and wine to be in the room and everything lookewd amazing. The bathroom was gorgeous and the room was quite romantic.

Ended up coming back and staying a second time, with high standard of service once again. The breakfast wasnt great but we think that was down to not having many people staying at the time.

Welna helped us with everything we needed and we were very grateful for this.

Very close to the airport and a great place to stay if coming or going from the area! Kempton Park as a suburb isnt too flash and didnt look very safe but we werent out and about. Would recommend this place.
