A beautiful Guesthouse with a lot of charm. Very nicely decorated and furnished with wonderful antiques. The room was spotless clean and equipped with flat screen TV, bar fridge, air conditioner, tea and coffee facility and even a bottle of sherry. Ilse, the owner, and her stuff were very friendly and helpful. The location is safe including secure parking area.... More

A wonderful place with fantastic people - beautiful artwork, beautiful rooms and a lovely garden. Ilse is amazing - felt like saying good bye to a live-long friend. All the staff are also very helpful and professional. I can highly recommend this guest house!

A very beautiful property. However... Extremely poor Wifi. Worked decently downstairs, didnt work at all in the room. Eventually stopped working altogether. The heating is done with the use of AirCon (which is characteristic for South Africa), however this aircon has seen better days. The air it "produced" was of the kind that you know immediately you will get sick.... More

The location, the house and its surroundings are beautiful. Ilse is a great host, who leaves nothing to be desired. The service of the staff - Nonnie and Anna - was just too good to be true. They are both real jewels! I will definitely stay there next time I will be in Jozi!

The accommodation with a difference. If you love staying in a B&B with history, then this is the place. Absolutely stunning décor, safe, beautiful gardens, views over Johannesburg and perfectly located. The staff were very friendly and helpful. But the highlight is the breakfast's! No hesitation to recommend.
