Very warm/cosy feeling place, with friendly and helpful staff. Conveniently close to the airport, but with this convenience comes a little bit of air traffic noise. I cant say I had any complaints and Im sure ill use them again in the future.

Very comfortable, easy, accessible and cosy. Enjoyed my stay although was just for one night in transit. They came to get me and were waiting at the airport on time. The rooms were clean, had heaters (was very cold in Jburg!) and big bathrooms with great showers. The guys are really nice and friendly too, so I do recommend staying here :)

Room Tip: Could get a bit noisy as the rooms are next to each other so ask the host for a quieter room

Fantastic little lodge very close to the airport that offert fast, efficient and reliable transfer services. Beautifully presented and maintained. Family run and great home cooked dinners available. They also offer interesting trips if you are staying in the area. Very friendly and you really feel you are in safe hands, particularly if you are unfamiliar with South Africa. Will most certainly stay again if back that way.

What a friendly and cosy place to stay over. It is situated very close to the airport and was easy to find.
The accommodation was booked for me, so had I no idea what to expect, but when I arrived quite late the first night, I was welcomed by the friendliest young lady with the name of Jane. The checkin was quick and she even had a little fire going outside to warm up the guests.

Plain accommodation, but the attention to detail was perfect.

Staying here always feels like home. Great hosts that make you feel comfortable, great food, nice rooms and a fire on the patio make relaxing easy as soon as you arrive. This is a cozy little treasure just a short drive from the airport.

Lawrence and his wife were very gracious hosts! Their genuine personalities made them an excellent and trustworthy representative of their Inn and country. It makes sense since they are also serious tour guides. You know its good when other tour operators stay there!
We enjoyed their sincerity in making every effort to accommodate us and our friends who arrived a day after us. Making a Gluten free meal for one of our team. Very cool.
Rooms were spacious and very clean, coffee, tea, kettle and chocolate bars were a 'sweet' touch. The beds were comfy but the frames creek a bit when you move. The TV was good but quiet even on max. Volume but sufficient (a pro for the neighbours...lol) . The bathrooms were great! Lots of room and the showers were excellent especially if your a taller person!
The honor bar has 3 couches and a big screen TV as well.
The food was good and Jane was a good cook! After a month previous in India... mmm BACON!!!
The Inn is close to a park (5 min walk), convienience store and burger place (10min walk), and a good mall (20 min walk), and a Great evangelical church (Maranatha - 25 min walk).
The review would not be complete unless I mentioned Trixy...their little Ambassador a dashound ( aka. Wiener Dog). If you like animals, you'll love her. Gentle and loving any attention, she is the perfect quiet friend to all. Oh and the little campfire by the pool is excellent.
My wife and I travel the world for work and ministry and we both agreed that this was one of the best B&B's we have ever stayed at especially for the $.
It is all located in an Up Scale Residential neighbourhood 10 - 15 min from the Airport by vehicle. Pick up is available from the airport as well.
We are going back for 1 night before we leave for Frankfurt, Holland, Finland then home to Canada...try it!
