        The Breakfast, The Room, The Staff

        I was really impressed by this find. It's in an exceptionally convenient and leafy location in Johannesburg. Central, but peaceful. I was in Room #5 which was wonderful: loads of light, windows all round, space and great elevated views into the leafy surroundings of suburban Johannesburg. For a guesthouse, the Breakfast was outstanding. Fruit salad, yoghurt, a choice of cereals, muffins, fresh fruit and then a full cooked breakfast with great coffee. Staff were professional and friendly. Top recommendation.

        Everything about Q on First is brilliant. The staff and the host Jeremy are very friendly and helpful. They have a genuine warmth for people. Set in large quiet gardens in the upmarket suburb of Rosebank, it is easily accessible from the Rosebank Station on the Gautrain line from the airport.

        Had a great experience. They were very reliable and professional. Had called in to come early and with a possible addition of another night and they granted all these with grace. They even upgraded my room which made the experience more pleasant. They have a fully equipped kitchen for guest to toss a meal real quick or warm up some food. The breakfast was decent not laden with fat. The staff are warm and kind. The room was very clean. Most places are within close proximity and can walk. Just be safe thre is a lot of construction activity going on in Rosebank. Will definitely stay there on my next visit.

        Clean, the owner,

        Lets get this out of the way first. The staff are utterly hopeless. They can not provide any information on the area, the city or even where the guest house is within the city. Worse still they are not even particularly friendly or attentive. However the manager is the polar opposite - knowledgeable and very friendly. The rooms are big and very clean, but the wi-fi did not work and this was a major inconvenience.
