I had the pleasure of staying at Leaves during my work visitations to Johannesburg. On both occasions I stayed for longer that 3 weeks. Sue and her team is immaculate in going out of their way to make your stay as comfortable and pleasurable as it can be. The rooms are beautifully decorated, big and very comfortable with a personal touch to your preference. Wifi is available througout. If your looking to stay in this area, this is the place to stay. Sue, you and your team were awesome. Thank you!!

I have been fortunate enough to stay at Leaves on a couple of occasions. I have also stayed at a number fo other BnB's in the area and can highly recommend a few nights here.

The rooms are tastefully decorated, have a very warm feel and all the amenities a travelling businessman would require. I was particularly impressed with the in-room internet which was very fast.

The breakfast is a unexpected feast. Unlike other BnB's which offer the standard fare one is surprised with Sue's choice of the day. it's always scrumptious and comes with the expected continental additions (including a great cheese array) and wonderful roasted coffee.

But the coup de grace has to be the beds and accompanying linen. I have slept in many beds around the world and outside of a Castle Hotel in Dresden (6 stars) this was the most comfortable sleep i have ever had. i have gone as far as to ask Sue where she sourced the beds from and will be buying one for home.

If you want some tranquility this is a place to stay. I'd even have my meetings here if I could persuade my partners to come here. Thank you for a wonderful time.

Room Tip: All the rooms are equally splendid.

I highly recommend the Leaves Guest house. They are extremely service oriented, the property is very comfortable and clean, and they offer a car service if you need it. The room is very comfortable, expecialy the bed, and there is WIFI throughout that is easy to use.

I stayed at Leaves after reading the reviews about it. I picked that it was an excellent place to stay at but nothing prepared for the warmth, love, luxury and good service that I received from Sue and staff. I would recommend Leaves for anyone travelling to Johannesburg.

I can honestly say that staying at Leaves is the highlight of my work trips to Johannesburg. The hospitality is excellent, the rooms are exquisite (the attention to detail and finishing superb – bath crystals my favourite), and the breakfasts are ‘to die for’ – delicious and healthy. Thanks Sue and the team for always making me feel welcome – Leaves has really been like a home away from home for me.

Room Tip: All the rooms are wonderful - each one different and very special. And they all have great baths ;)

Leaves Exclusive Guest House is one of the best guest houses that i have stayed at in Johannesburg. I would recommend anyone going to Rivonia to book in there.The place is tranquil , clean and very safe. The rooms are quite large and the staff are very friendly , especially Sue , who goes out of her way to make your stay comfortable.
