Nice little guesthouse, with friendly and attentive staff. Good hearty breakfast (included) and evening meals (additional cost). Fantastic and safe location next to UJ. Would recommend and will visit again on my next visit to South Africa! Thanks

My second time staying here was at the last minute. I unexpectedly needed a place to stay near University of Johannesburg. I showed up, and Ford took care of arranging a room and transport to the airport the following day. I really enjoyed the peaceful room, breakfast and gardens. I'll stay here a third time when I come through Johannesburg...

What a wonderful, refuelling, calm place to be. A gem in the middle of the Jozi hustle and bustle. Really lovely. The staff were friendly, helpful and understood the importance and value of service. Thank you.

I stayed in one of the rooms outside of the main house. This place is absolutely beautiful, and a gem of Auckland Park! I found it to be incredibly safe, with an amazing garden (with pool), and a large selection of wonderful breakfasts.

Friendly, relaxed, clean, excellent breakfast, great lounge area. My flight home was in the evening, and I was allowed to use the room (cottage rather) until then at no extra cost. Highly recommended for visitors to UJ.

Friendly and helpful staff, well located and comfortable for our short stay. Facilities could do with more attention however, staff do an excellent job. Full breakfast is well presented and of good quality. Early morning walk in the garden is very enjoyable.

The place is in a very quite area which is nice for someone planning to work and very friendly staff. They were willing to explain all the questions that I needed to know about the environment. They wore a smile all the time.
