We choose Highgrove Guesthouse just for a stopover before our departure from Joburg airport. But it was so nice that our friends stayed the hole day in the guesthouse with it's nice pool and big garden. Not to forget the warm welcome and support by Allison, who cared about all our wishes.

The rooms are comfortable and enjoyed the facilities. Vehicles are parked safely inside the premises. Very friendly and helpful staff. Most definitely will re-visit when in the area and will...

This is a lovely venue in an upmarket and quiet location and but for a few small details, it could be really good. The quality and size of the towels is definitely not up to 4 star standard. The breakfast was adequate but not nearly as good as other places of similar price in the area. Chipped breakfast bowl, no...

A lovely stay in a beautiful well-maintained setting. Chris was very helpful and even called Uber on one occasion to transfer the family to a friend's house. He refused to accept reimbursement for the expense.

I stayed a night at Highgrove Guesthouse in mid October, and my stay was very pleasant. My room was spacious and comfortable, with a lovely bathroom and shower, and a balcony overlooking the garden. Breakfast next morning was superb - everything from fresh fruit, yoghurt and cereal, to a delicious cooked breakfast. Little touches like rustic bread rather than standard...

Our stay at Highgrove could not have been more pleasant. Personnel were warm, gracious, and very helpful. The accommodation and the grounds were beautiful. It was paradise to sit out on the patio for breakfast each day. Special food requests were met, and the daily offerings were perfect. I don't have one complaint about Highgrove. If you don't have a...
