We found ourselves in Johannesburg, coming in from Harare on business, and needed accommodation for an additional few days when our trip was extended. By chance we came upon this excellent place. The accommodation, welcome, breakfast and general standard is of a level you will not find elsewhere. This place is also excellent value for money and you will not find finer in Johannesburg and I will vouch certain for that.
The owners have furnished their premises with a beautiful, old style, antique charm, but with all mod-cons. The staff are superb and the owners lovely.
We travel regularly to South Africa and have stayed in many places. This is a gem!
Two very minor criticisms:
Can we have a simpler key system?
You must improve broadband internet access.
Excellent in every respect
