Fantastic guesthouse in Mulbarton. Excellent facilities and a great breakfast. Close to good restaurants. Personal care from the owners, beyond what one would expect. I would recommend Villa Lugano without hesitation. An excellent venue for business travelers or more grown up families.

+ Very friendly owner, good breakfasts, pretty balconies on upper floor rooms, lovely pool and garden surrounds. - Patchy/slow wi-fi, tight parking, some dated room decor. Overall a pleasant stay, but would go for Superior room over the regular deluxe next time. I would stay there again :)

Once again Villa Lugano proves it has maintained its standard and hospitality over many years. A home away from home. Clean efficient and just works! South Johannesburg does not have many choices if your business is in the area. There is everything you need including a good restaurant in walking distance.

Only 1 night into a 3 night stay and would already highly recommend the Villa Lugano. Very homely feel to the place, well appointed rooms and excellent breakfast. But what has really stood out is the service. I arranged for some craft beers to be delivered to the hotel to enjoy on arrival, this was no problem at all and...

The venue is outstanding. It is a beautiful setting with a classy touch. The staff are professional and very helpful. The grounds are immaculate and one feels as if one has ended up in Tuscany. The food was of high standard and very tasty.

This wonderful guesthouse is very characteristic. The owners are very friendly and any time I stayed here I've got a different room. Each room is different. The guesthouse has a pool. The breakfast is delicious! I will definitely come back in this guesthouse.

It renders a personalized service in that there are no many people at any point in time. The area is great and serene. Management interface with clients and provide much needed information about the location. My partner and I enjoyed the stay.
