“Very Nice!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 February 2014

We liked our stay here. The road leading up to the guesthouse is very bad, but the peace and quite makes up for it. I had my bookings a little wrong with the meals, but the staff helped me out quickly and the friendliness and helpfulness was a bonus. The rooms are beautifully decorated.

Dear Travellady
thank you for taking time to review Amber Rose.
Thank you for the compliments regarding the room furnishings, and staff friendliness.
Being in the beautiful countryside of Amber Rose, yet so close to town and services, enables one to getaway for peace and rejuvenation. on the road, the community continue to meet with government to fully tar the road, and hopefully the road will be tarred soon. Currently they have serviced the road with a grader.

Well located outside the bustle of Joburg, if a bit remote. Rooms are very good and we had an outside shower which was a welcome bonus. I would go there just for the peace of the gardens and the pool. The roses really are a treat. Excellent service from the onsite manager and very good breakfasts

Room Tip: Try to get an outside shower. Its such a pleasure!

Dear Cos Moss from New Zealand
thank you for taking the time to review Amber Rose Country Estate, in Fourways.
We note that you are knowledgeable having reviewed many hotels before us, and we are glad that you gave us top accolades on your experience of the room, with the extra treat of the outside shower, our breakfasts and overall experience at the pool and garden.

Being in the country, we have the extra space to develop the garden, and to follow our passion with the many roses. We would welcome you back to stay at our peaceful country estate. It was a pleasure to host you and the family.

kind regards
General Manager

Very pretty place.Unfortunately I wouldn't stay there again.Worst experience.Rude approach from owner and dishonesty from the manager, my birthday braai was a mess.If I had known what I know now...no thanks to the manager I would have gone elsewhere....Great views, nice breakfast but such dishonest service and rudeness.

AmberRoseCountryEst, General Manager at Amber Rose Country Estate, responded to this review, 1 December 2013
Dear Samantha
We are very surprised by your review as you were in agreement with the terms and conditions under which your party would be held at Amber Rose. "Music to be toned down by 10pm and shut down by 11.30 pm."
Amber Rose is a much desired venue and our local reputation and respect for neighbours is important. The estate is situated within the Greater Johannesburg Metropolitan area and is subject to the Johannesburg bylaws. Late night sound and loud music is required to be limited.
It was 01h30 - 02h00 when the owner requested that guests come inside and quieten down.
Guests were abusive and very reluctant to comply, it was clear that Samantha's guests were not aware of the terms and conditions under which the party was to be held.
Please see below the email sent in writing to Samantha in terms of conduct on the property
We regret that it was necessary to shut the party down at 01h45 but it had become unruly and far exceeded the time agreed.
Terms
*No sound system as you said you will bring your own DJ
*Music to be toned down by 10pm and shut down by 11.30 pm.
*All music outside the patio to be turned off. Guests may move inside and play music at a reasonable . sound only to be heard by the guests in the Guest House.
*Amber Rose and its management have the right to control and request the DJ to play at a certain volume should they feel it is over the limit.
*Right of Admission reserved to Amber Rose.
*Extra people not included in the original quote will be R200 per head.
*Venue is from 18.00 till 00.00. Should the function run over time, it has to be in doors, music toned down or off.
*Guests may use the dinning room and lounge for the rest of the night provided that they conduct themselves in an orderly fashion at all times.
*Damage or loss of any Amber Rose Property will incur replacement costs.

Kind regards
General Manager

Will certainly go back when i have business in the area. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. would be nice to have the television in front of you instead of at an angle. Sand roads a bit of a bugger but not to bad.

I had to do a 5 day course in Bryanston and needed a place close by but also due to the length of stay wanted something clean, neat and relaxing. Amber Rose has a lovely country feel with amazing views but yet I only had to travel 11km to Bryanston to do my course. My room was perfect, clean, neat and beautifully decorated. Service and hospitality were great and I would 100% recommend this venue to anyone. The only negative was the road driving in was a bit tough on my A3 but probably not an issue in any other car.

Dear Courtney
thanks so much for taking the trouble to post your feedback on your stay at Amber Rose. You gave us a score of 34/ 35, an outstanding rating which we appreciate very much as you had a real opportunity to evaluate the guest house and the service rendered by the staff by staying for 5 days B&B and dinners.
1 point short of perfect for the road condition which is understandable, progress is being made on the road, although slow, by the local rate payers who are tarring it, as Johanneburg City has neglected its responsibility.
we look forward to hosting you or your family in the future again.
