A really super guest house. Staff are so friendly & welcoming. Beautiful rooms & garden. Fantastic location right by 7th street which is where all the restaurants & cafes are & 27 boxes is just down the road. Well worth a look at as some great shops there. Thank you - I'll be back one day!

Cannot wish better staff! Both ladies were so friendly and helpful! The garden is pretty. Good places to eat are just one street away. You have to take a cab to visit the main things in Jo'burg. But just to stay there before your trip in south africa starts, is more than great!

We were greeted with a warm welcome from the staff here. The rooms are individual and have a cosy feel and are set around a lovely courtyard garden. Breakfast is delicious and served with a smile! It is located in a nice suburb close to bars and restaurants.

I stayed at the guest house with my two young boys. The family room worked very well for us, and at a very reasonable price. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The Bambanani restaurant is a short walk down the road, which is also fantastic for children.
