Airport Modjadji Guesthouse
Ranked #10 of 68 Kempton Park B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 1, 2012

This is a lovely, comfortable, and welcoming place within minutes of the OR Tambo Airport. The hosts, Deon and Marida, are incredibly helpful. They not only drove us to and from the airport and restaurants in the area, but made two trips that went way above and beyond - to Walkerville (about 35 km outside of town) to visit a friend and to the train station in Jo-burg (which was in one of the scariest areas I've ever been). The guest rooms are comfortably and attractively decorated. All in all, a wonderful place to stay.

Good value for money - complimentary transfers from and to O R Tambo Airport (one very early in the morning). The room and bathroom were really clean - no complaints on that score. I did not eat breakfast so cannot comment further. Very friendly and helpful service - I was meeting friends for dinner and we were recommended to a great restaurant in the area. Perfect for an overnight stay!

If you are looking for a cozy and tasteful accommodation that is run by warm, caring people, near the OR Tambo International Airport at Johannesburg, you need look no further.

The B&B is one part of a home, run by Deon and his wife. We are a couple who stayed here two times, once each in the cottage room and regular room.

The rooms themselves are clean and furnished tastefully, the beds warm and comfortable. Breakfast is served in the home's dining room and while it is not just complete, it is also served from the owners' own kitchen, and by them directly. You feel you are not eating at just some table, but you are also a little bit part of the family.

For us personally, the experience of staying at Airport Modjadji was more than just a couple of nights' stay. It highlighted to us, the helpful nature of the owners and the thought and care put in by them while hosting us. We had lost our luggage when we arrived at Johannesburg, but Deon (the owner) and his wife helped us immensely. At the Airport he was there with us for as long as was needed to finish our discussion with the airlines and got some local currency. Upon reaching the guest house, Deon's wife took us to a nearby eatery for dinner as it was quite late into the night when we had reached. Further, the kind family also helped us out with some spare clothes for our trip, which sustained us till we got our luggage back!

The fact that this place doesn’t charge for Airport pick ups and drops is itself a big advantage. But the fact that we were not charged for any of the other things (such as going to and coming back from the eatery in the night, waiting extra at the airport etc.) just shows that these folks can go to great lengths to host their customers well.

This is the kind of hospitality one can only dream of from big-budget hotels or fancy guest houses. The excellence of hosting guests is, perhaps, best exemplified by these kind natured people running a simple, clean B&B.

I would recommend Airport Modjadji to anyone who is looking to stay near OR Tambo within a budget, but more to be able to enjoy the warm hospitality of some great hosts. These guys made our South Africa trip memorable. Thanks Deon!
