“"Thumbs up to Salo and Graham"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 11, 2012

I would like to praise Linga Longa for their fantastic professionalism and great hospitality during my stay.
The rooms were clean, modern and very well decorated. The beds were extremely comfortable and the breakfast was outstanding.
It was a home away from home..
A brilliant 5 star experience that was far more than I would normally expect from a guest house. Salo and Graham were truly super hosts and I will be definately be returning.

Room Tip: Room 1 - Excellent shower and room decor.

We would like to thank, Salo and Graham for the wonderful time we had at the guest house.

We really enjoyed every minute. The place is so well maintained and clean, the room was fresh daily and the breakfast was devine.

We would recommend any couple who would like to take some time out to give the guest house a try.

If ever there was a typical guesthouse, the Linga Longa hotel was it. The hotel is located in the Kempton area of Johannesburg and not within walking distance of any amenities or services, so a car is must have. The hotel itself is secure and free car parking is provided within the hotel compound (bit war-like) but that is the way it felt.
The accommodation itself is a basic yet spacious with outdated furniture, in urgent need of some loving, the rooms reminded me of something you would see in a 1970’s blue movie. The furniture and fittings of the room just made it feel like not much care or heart had gone into maintaining this hotel. The bathroom was also basic with an old style shower and not much in terms of ventilation.
The hotel itself did have a small bar and swimming pool, but completely lacked in atmosphere, however the staff were polite breakfast was decent. If you are looking for a place to rest your head for the night this hotel will do the job, if however you are looking for entertainment or romancing then I would suggest finding an alternative.
