My boyfriend and I where desperately looking for a place to stay near Santon, and there was a big mix up with the booking but from the minute we walked in we felt welcome. Cheryl helped me sort out all the confusion with the booking and it truly felt like we where home away from home. We stayed in Room... More

We stayed over at The Mustard Seed for one night only, unfortunately, since it was truly wonderful. The host was very welcoming and friendly. The room which we booked was very spacious, clean and beautifully decorated. For our convenience, the heater in the room was already switched on upon our arrival, so the room was nice and toasty. The double... More

I found the guest house shabby and in need of an upgrade! The sheets were old and torn. The carpets need replacement. There was a greasy mark on the curtain. It was extremely noisy when guests came and left the guesthouse. I left my iPhone charger behind. I phoned on the same day to ask that it be kept for... More

The pictures of the guest house looked attractive and on Booking.com it received an 8.4 rating, so my expectations were quite high. What a disappointment! The room was big but not beautiful. There is a large damp mark on the ceiling; the linen was thread bare; the duvet was thin and flat; the pillows were lumpy and dirty with old... More

Nice spacious and comfortable. I would go back, a good breakfast, the location is a bit tricky in the evenings first time you go. Bath and shower, and nice working space. Centrally controlled dstv is something of an irritant

I have stayed at Mustard Seed Guest House 5 to 6 times on short business trips. This a beautiful 5 bed room boutique guest house in Sandton. Good breakfast is also provided. All rooms have an ensuite bathroom. The owner of the guest house is friendly and very nice lady.

What a beautiful property - an oasis of serenity in the midst of the Johannesburg buzz. I found this a perfect spot to do some work on the tarrace overlooking the charming garden, or just relax after meetings. Cheryl and her son are wonderful hosts, who go out of their way to make one feel at home - as if... More

Stayed for a couple of nights. I loathe Sandton - it's bland, anodyne and unnatural, but this place was a bit different. Great old furniture, picked out with taste and style, Very comfy, and would be a great place to drink a bottle of red wine on a cold night (I had cold nights but wasn't drinking those nights).

I absolutely enjoyed spending the night at Mustard Seed Guest House. Cheryl and Byron are such warm and loving hosts, the room was fantastic (I mean, details as small as the room's fragrance were on point! :D), and breakfast was A-class -- that filter coffee sure made my day! :) Not to mention that all this wonderfulness came at such...
