A nice place to stay and do business deep inside Joburg. It's quite enough for you to get away from the busy streets of Joburg. Located in a quite and safe neighborhood that is very close to good shopping malls. Very good for business trips.

The stay at Craighall Garden was really lovely, especially because of the caring and attentive host. The room and the athmosphere was also very beautiful. It is a very safe area and you should definitely try the Corner Cafe which is just around the corner ;) The food was very good and the price absolutely fine. We really enjoyed our...

Incompetent and unhelpful staff would sooner sleep under a bridge then have to deal with the massive pain this experience has been. I was charged in full for my stay as soon as I booked only to be called on two separate calls (same person) to say that they had double booked. I am now over R2,000 out of pocket...

This was a beautiful place. Nicely hidden in the suburbs of Craighall Park. The rain made it more enjoyable. The host was very friendly. There's a need for improving the kitchenette: enough cups and cutlery would help. The stay was too short...

The studio is beautiful and cozy, with really, really nice sheets and an electric blanket that was awesome! Breakfast was delicious (cooked by Angie) and there was coffee and tea available in my room all the time. The wifi was a bit spotty, but I think it's in the process of getting changed over/fixed so don't think it will be...

The place is in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood and is well kept. Angie, the host, is very accommodating and provides a variety of great, healthy breakfasts to your convenience. It was a pleasure to stay there and we found that there was a lot to do in the surrounding areas.

Anyone that has ever attended Fashion Weeks, know it gets very chaotic pre, during and post shows. You literally suffer from social exhaustion on day 1 already. I flew up to Johannesburg to attend the last two days which was dedicated to just menswear. Finding accommodation that ticked all my boxes proved to be very easy. Craighall Gardens Guest House...

I stayed at Craighall Garden B&B for 3 nights - it's my first time in Johannesburg and what a great experience. Angie is an absolute sweetheart, she arrived so early to transfer me to the B&B and went out of her way to get me to stop by Woolies 24 hours way past a reasonable hour! I enjoyed a lovely...
