I stayed at Avondhu Guest House from 15-20 January 2017 and what an incredible experience.

The relaxed and peaceful atmosphere throughout the house and in the garden...

There was a pile of paintings leaned against the curtains,...

We at Avondhu Guest House have always enjoyed the kind reviews from our many wonderful guests through the years. As owners we take great pride in our guest house, and will always listen to comment on room for improvement and/or advice from our guests in order to improve. This review is unfair, untrue and unfounded. Regards Tania Manager and Owner

We really enjoyed to be at avondhu guest house, the rooms are spacious, clean and the wifi coverage too good. The location of the guest house is strategic in the sense that it is accessible, a few kilometres to Sandton and Johannesburg zoo. The place is simple packed with fun.

The service has been excellent, my room was warm and comfy, especially during the oh so cold evenings as I could take a warm bath and step into a heated room, before I peacefully dosed of to dreamland.
