            Location, value for money

            Very basic 3 star Bed & Breakfast. I used it for business in the area and was in and out. Staff are friendly and helpful. No frills but good value at the price paid, especially if you only need a place to sleep.

            Friendly, hospitality, fair price

            Stayed just for a couple of days,in a cottage, It is not the best neighbourhood (lowerclass area) Hey it is Johannesburg south, but I felt safe. The guesthouse is well protected. Wayne and his staff are very helpfull and provide you any information you want if needed. Charters from and to OT airport can be arranged, just ask (and prices are good) .Internet Wifi was not to fast, but they are working on that. Bed was good and comfy. Goldreef casino (with nice and payable restaurants), Goldreef theme park (have not been there but should be fun and interesting) and the Apartheidmuseum ( very impressive) are close by. If you are with a (rental)car,parking inside the fences of the guesthouse (so protected). and the most important thing: Ivy makes you a wonderfull breakfast. I say: Highly recommended. Will surely come back if possible. Really enjoyed my stay here !!

            good price and available at last minute on Christmas Day

            When we arrived there was no staff member to open the gate (understandable it being Christmas Day, but since it was raining, it was a bit annoying), but after a phone call, the manager arrived promptly. The rooms were adequate for a one-night stay and the breakfast average, but everyone was very friendly and helpful, and that makes a big difference.
