We came here for an overnight stop before flying to Hoedspruit. It's not central, but we didn't need that. The rooms are lovely with nice touches like Molton Brown toiletries. We ate both dinner and breakfast here and were delighted with both. It's everything a boutique hotel should be.

The strength of this hotel is that all the rooms are on a garden, which is nice change from a typical city hotel. Good location in Melrose. The rooms are large and the common areas well designed. I ate dinner at the hotel twice - the food was a little shaky (overcooked one night) though it's an interesting, albeit limited,...

Thank you for reviewing us. I have noted your comments about both our WiFi - we are about 8 weeks away from getting an upgraded fibre line at 100mbps - and our pool and bistro service. We are attending to the restaurant at the moment and will be opening a second pool in about a month as we have purchased...

We spent two weeks traveling South Africa and our travel agent arranged for us to spend a night at The Peech for our flight back to the US. We protested it because we had heard so many negative things about Joburg, but when we got to the Peech we were so glad we listened to our travel agent! After a...

We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The rooms were well appointed and quite large, the grounds were immaculate and included a raucous ibis which I thought was neat, and the hotel had a small pool, free wifi, and a small, bu nice outdoor cafe area. The staff were incredibly flexible with check-in. We arrived at I think 1000 and weren't...

I have traveled all over the world from the best hotels to Air BnB and whilst I didn't connect entirely with JNB, I have to say I would probably make an excuse to come back again because of the couple days at the Peech. The staff is probably what stands out most in this extremely well kept hotel. Oscar and...

Thank you for your review. I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us so much. I did also note your comment about out internet. Our current service can be slow at times and I apologise for it.

We absolutely LOVED our room at the Peech hotel. It was spacious, modern, ultra-clean, impeccably designed, cozy, with a view of the beautiful grounds. Room included complimentary water, coffee and tea, and snacks for purchase, as well as air conditioning, TV with plenty of movie channels, nice spacious bathroom with a shower and bath tub, large bed, hanging chair and...

We arrived late and left early but the staff was very accommodating. They kept the kitchen open late and the food was fantastic. Rooms are great but the AC is a bit underpowered. Beautiful grounds, nice bathrooms, great food, and great staff. Wish we could have stayed a bit longer.

I am delighted that you enjoyed your stay.

The thing that makes this hotel so lovely is the staff. They were delightful. Rooms are spotlessly clean and with excellent facilities, including iPod dock. There are snacks but they are not complimentary. Toilets are oddly very high off the ground (not great for short people!) Aircon is badly placed around the corner from the beds and there are no...

I normally stay at another property while in Johannesburg in a completely different neighborhood, though I am very familiar with the Melrose Arch area.

We loved the Peech on arrival in Joburg. In a busy city, the Peech stands out as an oasis of peace and quiet. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated with an extra large bathroom. The restaurant has excellent food. After a long flight, it was great to settle in and get a great meal on premises. Highly recommended.
