We stayed at the Emerald Guest House as just an overnight on our way to Victoria Falls. It is close to the airport (about 10 minutes by their free van service, which runs hourly). We were impressed by the quiet of the rooms and grounds. We especially liked the excellent full breakfast which included eggs, bacon, sausages, white beans in...

We particularly liked the pleasant garden and pool. The bus driver was super and looked after us really well. Rooms clean and pleasant for a short stop over. We felt that we got value for money with this stay

Our stay was acceptable. Room was a bit small for 2 beds - 3 people. We were so tired that night, it worked for us bearing the circumstances. It's a very nice and quaint place, close in proximity. Again, accommodation was acceptable to us.

The staff are efficient and very friendly. Although the decor is a bit outdated, the rooms are ok. My only complaint is that the bathroom was full of spider webs and the bed was dusty......it needs a clean! Over all - not a bad place to stay.

We spent 2 nights at the Emerald Guest House now in January 2017. The place is very good, friendly staff, clean, a decent breakfast, safe and cheap. What more can you ask for??!!

After cancelling my stay due to unforeseen circumstances and well in advance, all attempts to communicate with the Emerald Guest House staff failed. They simply ignored my messages and failed to fulfill their refund obligations in line with their cancellation policy.

Firstly the rooms are quite small and looks old and run down. There was a stain on my duvet cover! The floor was not cleaned as there was dirt on the carpeted floor and the bathroom floor was sticky for some reason. The towels had an old damp smell to them. As for the bed it was not very comfortable...

The rooms are Clean and neat. But simple. Nice green garden and pool. Room 246 was a bit noisy from showers upstairs in the morning. Friendly and obliging staff. Basic yet tasty breakfast. Good for a single night oasis near the airport.

-Airport shuttle was late - had to phone reception. -No aircon in Gauteng as they don't want to pay for more electricity (but they have a huge fridge and a TV that only plays SABC with bad reception). Asked for fans and got one broken one and one that worked. -Neighbours played rave music until 01:15. -Paid for 2 adults...

It is very suitable for budget accommodation. Closed to the airport and the pick up service is very good. I don't have the change for the extra airport pick up service then the host is very kind to offer the complementary.
