Excellent service, great food and John was most hospitable. Great location. Even when we had to leave at 4 a.m. John got up to make sure we had coffee and treats. Very clean and updated facility. Pool was very refreshing.

We stayed at Elgin House for 2 nights over a weekend.We stayed in the cottage which is situated quite a distance from the main house. It is perfect for families with young children as there is no fear of children disturbing other guests. The cottage is very spacious. There is an amazing collection of books in the cottage and i...

I've stayed all over Africa; and I've stayed here for, in aggregate, 3 or 4 months over the course of several stays. There is no more lovely a place to stay in all of Africa. John and Estelle welcome you with genuine warmth and kindness. There are different kinds of welcomes: at the Mandarin Oriental in Bangkok, the staff remember...

Its been nearly a year since i wrote my first review and i have stayed here many times since. The standards remain consistently high, and the welcome unfailingly friendly. This would still be my recommendation for a quiet unobtrusive stay - for business or pleasure - in Johannesburg. Kudos to John...

I have recently spent a few days at Elgin for the second time in three years, and cannot speak too highly of this beautiful house and grounds, very comfortable accommodation, wonderful breakfast, cordial welcome and the kindly care and helpfulness of John Roberts, the owner. This establishment is truly a haven from the bustle of Johannesburg and must appeal to...

I have stayed several times here myself, and my company has been regularly using Elgin House for our consultants and visitors for more than 3 years now. (It also can host small dinners, events, meetings and conferences.) Everyone has been unanimous in their praise, and I/we could not be more effusive. Elgin House is the ideal stay for Northern Johannesburg...
