We really liked the set including the bar area, great place to stay, with helpful staff, great host/tour guide and delicious food. Could not ask for more pleasant or better service. Our room was clean and comfortable. Only10 minutes from the airport, so conveniently situated and nice neighborhood. Will definitely return if we come back. Thanks Laurence and Alida.

A big thanks to Alida and Laurence for helping to make our stay in Africa great!. Whether you are staying overnight or for several days, Journey's inn is a great place to stay. The location is convenient to the airport, which is nice after a long flight. The staff is friendly and the food is fantastic. I found the Inn to be a good value for my money. Our party ranged in ages from 15 to 79 and all had an excellent time. I highly recommend this venue. (Also, Laurence is friendly, knowledgeable, organized, and a great tour guide. Make sure you check this out as well.)

A great place to stay, with warm, helpful staff, and delicious food. One could not ask for more pleasant or better service. Our room was clean, comfortable and well decorated. We enjoyed the honesty bar, allowing us to get a drink, and record what we consumed. It's 10 minutes from the airport, so conveniently situated and was easy to find, driving a hired car. Our flight back was late, and we were allowed to check out late, which was really good. We had a wonderful weekend and will definitely return.

This is a very nice, clean place that is in a residential neighborhood, quite convenient to the Tambo International Airport. The owner picks you up and drops you off at the airport and will do the same at local restaurants, if you so desire. The rooms are simple--almost spartan--but are comfortable and immaculate. The bathroom is well designed and the mattress is top rate. The TV selection was poor but that is the only negative point I can make. Breakfast was typical and plentiful. One more point--the price is right.

We were looking for a safe place to stay for one night after a long flight. Green Palms was a great find. We telephoned the owner from the airport and were collected 10 minutes later. We had a nice clean room, good breakfast the next day and then were driven back to the airport to collect our hire car. Outstanding value for money.
