I stayed at The Peech for one night. The room was comfortable and I appreciated the in room snack options, as well as the ease of being able to charge my electronics using a USB port in the wall. Dinner the night of my stay was rather awkward. Having traveled all day coming into the city from the bush, and... More

We ordered in lunch from the restaurant on premise and it was delicious. The staff were extremely attentive, courteous, and helpful. It was the... More

I stayed here for 2 nights over the last week-end. Lovely, comfortable room with a nice "African" decor feel. Large, well appointed bath, comfortable bed, well-thought out light controls. All very clean. Welcoming, accommodating staff. Excellent recommendations for meals, etc. Coming off a week in another African country, I was happy to be able to send out laundry and have... More

Stayed two nights earlier this month and experienced excellent service from all of the staff. Charmaine and the concierge team were very helpful and could not have done more to make our stay perfect. The hotel is in a very good location in Melrose with all restaurants and sights within a short taxi ride.

This is truly a lovely hotel in the middle of a busy city. It's a very nice boutique hotel, with great service. It's small - 16 rooms - although it's expanding. The rooms are nice and comfortable. The gardens are beautiful. We had both dinner and breakfast here, and both meals were very good. The staff is friendly and helpful.

The Peech is boutique hotel were everything come together. The food is wonderful, the rooms are brilliant and the garden is like an oasis. You do not have the feeling that you are in a big city like Joburg. Excellent staff is at your service in other words, the place to be.
