Pam and Rob are first class hosts in this well appointed guesthouse which is convenient for any business or leisure visit to the Johannesburg area. They clearly care for the environment and are passionate ambassadors for modern South Africa. The rooms are large and comfortable with self catering facilities. Breakfast is substantial and should keep you fortified for the rest...

Dear David Thank you so much for taking the time to review Amanzi - and comment on what we offer and surrounding area. I have lived in this area for nearly 30 years, and find it, as you say, really central and convenient. Delta Park is a huge plus for us and for our guests. We are always encouraged by...

Was fortunate to stay at this guesthouse on the most wonderful room which had a full kitchenette and lounge area. Thoroughly enjoyed the visit and the hospitality of the guesthouse owners. Breakfast was also delicious and they were very accommodating with respect to breakfast times. Definitely recommended!

Dear Gavin Thank you so much for taking the time to write about your experience of staying at Amanzi.

Amani is an amazing place, and the hosts could not be more accommodating. Each apartment is spacious, with plenty of room for an extended stay (though it was also perfect for our brief two-night visit). Breakfasts were terrific, and there are shops and restaurants within a brief (but scenic) walking distance. After spending time in Craighal Park (where Amanzi is...

Immaculately clean rooms which are preciously spacious, well ventilated with crisp clean, white cotton linen (a must for me). A dreamy garden that allows you to fall asleep to the lullaby sound of running water from their waterfall. The breakfast is made with love: freshly squeezed orange juice with delicious free range products and fresh pesticide-free vegetables straight from their...

It's a home away from home. Such a homely place. It's also very close to everything you need to be close to. The host, Pam and her wonderful staff made me feel so welcome. Would highly recommend this guest house if a hotel is not your your thing. Thanks for a great stay!
