“In a great area”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014 via mobile

The elderly couple are wonderful people, but the b&b is in much need of a major revamp. Furniture very old, place is very dusty. Had a problem with lights & couldn't iron. But the owners are wonderful.

I stayed at Coopers Croft for an entire month (Aug. 2013) while waiting for my nearby apartment to become available. There is so much I could write about this place and more especially the owners, Peter and Carol Cooper. They are a magnificent couple, both with a heart of gold and knack for service and small details. They are very well traveled so they can appease all cultures and cliental (I am American and enjoyed their stories about visiting my home country). They have actually operated the bed and breakfast for 21 years. This experience is obvious from the moment they greet you upon arrival- this is truly both of their life's calling! They live onsite so they were always readily available for any of my needs. They are very open people so anything you need they can help you or guide you in the right direction. The smallest details are paid attention to most, especially concerning safety and guest convenience. There are many benefits the website doesn’t mention. I only learned upon my arrival there was free wifi, plenty of undercover, safe parking, the property was very well lit for guest staying alone or arrive late in the evenings. The property is gated (w/remote), and the rooms are serviced daily. Oh and BREAKFAST-- you have to book breakfast its super good and affordable! I stayed in a single room with a small kitchen (single sink, small fridge, electric frying pan, fully stocked with dishes, microwave, toaster, kettle). Heat is included (no gas heaters like other places I have stayed). My room had heated floors, and a plug in heater /heat blanket was made available to me at no extra charge. Plenty of luggage space with a full bathrooms too. LOCATION was amazing! 5 minute walk to a HUGE shopping mall which had everything you need; Pick n Pay, Spur, Ocean Basket, and Virgin Active. One thing you must make time is a talk with Mrs. Carol she is SUCH an amazing person (she is a great cook too-she doesn't offer this service- but if you could talk her into it -you will NOT be disappointed). The place is great...but the Coopers make this place absolutely a must!!

After making the decision to relocate to Joburg for work, I was faced with the task of finding accommodation. Deciding to stay at Coopers Croft B&B made the transition into Joburg life that much easier. I booked in for two weeks and ended up staying a month and a half.
The self catering option with private access was a must for me and when combined with the close proximity to main routes and shops and WiFi, it made for a very convenient stay.
Peter and Carol were very accommodating of any requests and the atmosphere was always friendly. I enjoyed my stay and would like to recommend Coopers Croft B&B.

My colleagues and I have stayed at Coopers many times over the last few years.
It has a total "At Home" ambiance and guests are greeted and treated as family.
Personally I generally stayed (by choice) "up the hill" in the annex room in the garden (recently up-graded).
We were welcome to organise braais (bbqs) for our friends. This including Peter and Carol (of course) who would even buy in the meat etc for us if we were pushed for time.
The breakfasts are totally "Traditional English", eggs etc cooked to choice by either Peter or Carol, (even with homemade marmalade) and served around the family dining room table.
Secure parking with electric gates and your own "entry buzzer". Swimming pool and tennis court.
In Randburg and very convenient for the Northern Suburbs, close to the "concrete highway ring road" and freeways.
Many good restaurants within easy distance at such places as Brightwater or Cresta - Joburg is a city designed for eating out - from haut cuisine all the way up to greasy spoon - suit yourself.
Coopers croft offers plain rooms or self catering. Comfortable lounge, outdoor seating area by the pool.
Wonderful.

Room Tip: Doubles, twins, self cater - they're all excellent.
