I highly recommend Bit O Bush. We stayed here a couple of nights when we first arrived in Johannesburg. We also stayed another couple of nights a week later. The hospitality, rooms and meals are very personalized. I will be staying here again on my next trip.

Comfortable place close to the airport. Annette very friendly and helpful. Rooms average, didn't like the loo situated in the corner of the shower room.. Breakfast was great. Have notice in prevois reviews that they offer airport transfers. This is not the case but you can take a taxi.

We stayed here, as it was close to the airport. Arrived late afternoon and checked out (very) early the next morning. Lovely place, safe parking, room was lovely, didn't need anything more! Would stay here again.

We stayed here with another couple for three nights around a trip to Livingstone. It was our second visit and the location is ideal when transiting through the OR Tambo Airport. Annette is a friendly and helpful host and we would happily stay here again.

After a long flight the owner of the guesthouse picked us up. She is very friendly. The guesthouse is at an 8 minutes drive away from the airport which is nice after a long flight. After a welcome drink she showed us the room which is nicely decorated and very clean. The bed is very comfortable. The breakfast was of...

I stayed here in August 2011. The host, Annette, is very hospitable and ensures that you have everything that you need. The rooms are equipped with coffee making facilities. There was no heating facilities when I last visited, and it was pretty cold on one of those days. The breakfast is excellent! The host also dropped me at a nearby...

We used Bit o' Bush on three separate occasions on our recent trip to South Africa. It's close proximity to OR Tambo airport being such an advantage. Annette and Peter are fantastic hosts, helping these hapless Australians with pick ups and drop offs to the airport, and great local knowledge re. eating and shopping. The rooms are clean and comfortable,...

In my regular travels to Johannesburg I came across this little gem. Annette really goes the extra mile, and even though this is rated 3 star, the extras definitely impact - toiletry tray including shoe shine, clothes valet, plenty hanging space. The unit was also spotless and this is a major plus especially in the bathroom. It is close to...
