“Pleasant Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2013

I liked my stay at Jax Place. The reception was friendly, the room was spacious and tastefully appointed. The breakfasts were simply great. No hassles at all from checking in to checking out. Small point - my room, number 15 was just out of reach of the wifi and I had to come down to the deck to access it. Overall, it was an enjoyable an comfortable stay.

Our company staff have been staying at Jax Place when we are in Jo'burg for 5 years now. I don't like being away from home on business so that extra bit of luxury, the good food, friendly and professional service makes it easier. Now that the Spa is up and running I may book a later return flight so that I can fit in a massage :) Thanks to Jax and all the staff at Jax place for a wonderful welcome every time.

What a welcome- from the gate intercom to reception and all the friendly, attentive staff. Professional service, with attention to detail- we were given extra blankets as the weather had changed- these little extras make all the difference. The block-out curtains kept the room dark and there was no noise- we could have slept all day! The shower was huge and the room clean, with well matched linen.Very personal hospitality - everyone made sure we were looked after. Thank you to Abigail for our scrumptious breakfast! We highly recommend Jax Place, not only for their accommodation, but also for meetings and events- well run team work!

We enjoyed the relaxing, friendly athmosphere in a nice big room.The breakfast was exellent and i love fruit and fresh juices in the morning.When i have to stay over in Joburg i will come back.
The airport is close without interfering with you.We found it by chance, sometimes the best,
Thank you and Namaste!!

Rooms are nice and have a cozy feel to it, mine did not have aircon, but it did have a heater that helped

Breakfasts are interesting and there is a whole jug of juice on your table, no need to walk up and down with a glass the size of a shooter.

Bad thing of my room is that the bathroom views on the restaurant and have a see thru curtain, I had to hang a sheet in order to have privacy.

Not walking distance from any shops

I selected Jax Place based on the Websit pictures and was planning to make this my vitual home while on business. My Wife an I were suffled into a crampy tiny room which did not appear on any of the advertisments and we never had a choice of breakfasts even though the receptionist carefully noted our allergy requirements.

I will never use Jax Place again anywhere in the country.

Room Tip: Go and visually check what you've been offered, and if you can't, then book somewhere else.

This my second stay and I was very pleased once again with the friendly service. I will certainly stay here whenever I am in Edenvale for business. the room was well appointed and comfortable.
It is also in close proximity to business and shopping centers. it suited my needs perfectly.
