Had a 13hr layover and booked a stay at the guest lodge. Very friendly staff, clean facilities and all round decent comfort and privacy. Affordable and not far from OR Tambo. The staff literally opened the kitchen out of hours for me so I could have a meal before my flight.

The staff was very friendly and rooms were very clean. I wish there can be a free personal braai stand.The pool was always clean and we always find the rooms clean whenever we come. Their approach was world class

Enjoyed the room design a lot, simple and cosy, very clean. The self service bar is a very neat idea, and the staff was very reliable. In the morning the garden was beautiful and quiet and I felt that the whole place has charm.

My wife and I stayed for two nights and our overall experience was wonderful. We booked transfers to and from the hotel as well as a guided tour day journey through Joburg and Soweto. The supper we were served the second night was amazing. We can't recommend this enough if you are looking for safe, clean, relaxing and convenient.

A genuinely pleasant guest house with friendly staff and good food. I wanted somewhere away from the city, but unfortunately didn't realise that it's on the flight path to O.R Tambo airport. Not so good for a light sleeper like me.

It is conveniently located near the airport but the noise from the planes is quite disturbing if you are a light sleeper. The place is generally quite clean with a bushveld theme in the rooms. The staff is friendly. Their food is very good and they make an effort to serve it hot. There is a sparkling pool area where...
