A beautifully kept classic very old house (claimed to be the oldest in Edenvale) wooden floors and all, has been converted into a very acceptable guest house. Large suites are well appointed and comfortable and a satisfying breakfast. Reasonable rates make for good value.

We spent 2 nights here and had a very pleasant stay. Because we were a family travelling with my mom, we were all put in 1 big unit that could be separated by an inter-leading door if necessary. Our room was huge - with an even bigger bathroom and my mom's room was a good size with an adequate size...

Large establishment, with all the basics you need. Huge rooms, in the oldest house in Edenvale. Nice, well established area and quite surroundings. Close to main roads and shopping centres. Just a stone throw away from OR Tambo International airport.

We were a group of 10, spending a few days in Joburg prior to flying to the Okavango for our safari. Some of the rooms were excellent, ours not so much - no table, only one chair. Breakfasts good though I think we overwhelmed them with our numbers. They kindly kept luggage for some of us while on safari. Safe...

Felt like home, was quiet and peaceful and the bird life in the garden excellent. Many thanks to Cherri-Lee and all the staff. We will be...

We stayed for a night in order to catch a flight out of OR Tambo International Airport at the end of a driving holiday in South Africa. The Guest House was perfect for the purpose. Safe parking, comfortable beds, good breakfast, a short drive to the airport. We couldn't have asked for anything better.

Very conveniently situated, and was value for our money. We stayed in the Sneech Suite and were very comfortable. I was allowed to have my dog with me, and he had sufficient garden area to exercise in. Unfortunately for us, we arrived in the middle of a heatwave, and the room didn't have a fan nor airconditioner. However, a fan...

We stayed here for 2 nights with our group of 11 during our brief stay in Johannesburg on route to Botswana. I have to say that for my first time staying in a hotel like this I was quite impressed. I have never really travelled extensively outside of North America except for resorts and such in southern locations so I...
