This was our first stop after landing in South Africa after being abused by South African Airways on a 15ish hour flight. So we had pretty fierce jetlag. What I appreciated most was that because it was a smaller hotel, you really felt like you got personal service. For example a couple of nights we were too tired to go...

The Peech is a secure and beautiful property in Melrose Arch, a swanky Jo'burg suburb. The rooms are large and very well appointed. There is a nice bistro on site, swimming pool, computer and printer and lovely gardens for outside dining and drinking. The Earl Grey Park is next door which is safe for walking. Highly recommended.

We spent four nights in this lovely boutique hotel on our arrival from the U.S. on a month's vacation in South Africa.

We stayed at the Peech after traveling ~48 hours to get to Johannesburg from Seattle. It couldn't have been any better! The room was large and the bathtub so very inviting for a nice long soak.

Stayed two nights earlier this month and experienced excellent service from all of the staff. Charmaine and the concierge team were very helpful and could not have done more to make our stay perfect. The hotel is in a very good location in Melrose with all restaurants and sights within a short taxi ride.
