“Great value, close to airport, friendly owners!”
Reviewed 13 January 2013

I stayed here for a week and was incredibly happy with everything. Rooms are clean, free wifi, a relaxing outdoor area to sit in or play darts, small pool and jacuzzi, and great breakfasts. The owners will do anything to help you...thanks Maggie and Ernest, you're the best!

Great spacious rooms with luxurious beds and a really friendly atmosphere, Ernst & Maggie made us feel so welcome. Excellent value for money, hope we will be able to visit them again in the future. Only 10 to 15 minutes from the airport so easy to get to after a long flight. Safe & secure enviroment.

We used 3 Brothers as a hub while traveling around Africa and could not have chosen a better place. Ernst met us at the airport three times and dropped us off each time making our transfers seamless. As our hosts, Ernst, Maggie and their boys were particularly welcoming, accomodating and helpful. The rooms were clean, with thoughtful touches such as hot water bottles on cold nights; soaps, biscottis and a selfserve coffee/tea area; as well as the wonderful breakfasts prepared by Maggie and the free wireless was invaluable for checking on our lost luggage. The garden and pool area were also designed to meet the needs of guests of all ages. By the end of our multiple visits we felt we'd become part of the 3 Brothers family.

I had two fabulous stays at 3 Brothers in 2011. The service was incredible, the rooms were comfortable, the grounds were lovely, and the food was great. What else can one ask for? Ernest and Maggie created a welcoming atmosphere, and Ernest came out to the airport very late at night to pick me up from a late flight. The place is a bit confusing to find, though. I got lost driving there myself once. But it is treasure when you do get there. And so convenient to the airport.

The 3 Brothers is a family run B&B close to the international airport. The owners make you feel welcome. A pool and jacuzzi in the nice garden are available. I think it's the ideal place for people who don't want to stay in the anonymous atmosphere of a hotel. On my next business trip to Joburg I will stay again at the 3 Brothers.

My family primarily visited Mozambique in May 2011, but stayed 3 nights + 3 nights at 3 Brothers since Jo'burg was our final flight destination.

Amazing hospitality from Ernest and Maggie! Clean, comfortable rooms in a pleasant, quiet, residential area. Pool and jacuzzi, bar and pleanty of seating in the garden. The BBQ dinners was a perfect way to socialise and the wine flowed freely. Ask for the potato gratin with the grilled meat, it's delicious/outstanding!

We wanted to do a safari trip too, but didn't have time for a minimum 3 day trip to the Kruger Park. Instead Ernest suggested that we may go to Pilanesberg National Park with him. Pilanesberg is much closer to Jo'burg than Kruger, and you get all the top 5 there also. This whole-day excursion to Pilanesberg was gorgeous, with Ernest acting as a guide and driver.

As a whole, this B&B is a bargain and I definitely recommend it!
