With almost everything a tourist could ask for, ambiance, cleanliness, service, privacy, and plenty of space the Peech Hotel would almost add up to everything that we wanted. The only downfall that we discovered is that you cant have your own personal buffet of sweets in your room. My fiance and I went to JB's in Melrose Arch, and loaded down with deserts that would surely satisfy a "small army" or put you into a sugar coma. Our buffet consisted of huge servings of Lemon Meringue pie, Carrot cake, chocolate cheesecake and original cheesecake. After indulging in a very well prepared take away dinner from SWAD: The Royal taste of India, we polished off the carrot cake, part of the Lemon Meringue and afterwards fell deep into our sugar comas. Around 2 am, we awoke in hopes of finishing off what we had started, with two huge helpings of cheesecake, only to find a "small army" of ants had beaten us to it. The hotel staff was quick to respond and help us clean up but the disappointment was brutal. Other than this the Peech hotel is a great choice. The staff is very friendly and provides great hospitality. The grounds are beautiful and well kept, allowing for your privacy and comfort. Although the mattresses are firm and the owl outside your window serves as the alarm clock, the nights are very quiet, relaxing and safe. Each room has its own balcony or private terrace with a clear view of the courtyard. Melrose Arch and Rosebank Mall are within walking distance of the hotel and have plenty of shops and restaurants. Using On Track Tours we ventured all over the city with ease, never having to worry about or wait for a taxi. They tailored our tours to meet our needs and desires of visiting Joberg at a very reasonable cost. Overall, we would recommend this hotel, just keep in mind you might want to finish your food, before the ants do.
