    Wonderful hosts and great rooms

    We stayed here for two separate stays on our trip to South Africa- the first time the room was stunning - huge and with beautiful new bath and shower in the room, plus free sweets and drinks. The second time was a slightly less nice room but still huge, well stocked and very comfortable. Breakfasts were excellent and the hosts were extremely kind offering to drive us down to local restaurants in the evening and pick us up. The resident pets are also an absolute delight to hang out with!

    Große Zimmer, fürsorglicher Gastgeber. Es besteht jedoch Sanierungsbedarf im Haus und es ist leider ziemlich weit vom Flughafen entfernt.

    Arum place - our place- the place

    Ligger i Mellvi, ett lugnt område utanför centrum. Kände inget obehag vid vistelse på kvällar. Värden fixade trots det transport till/från restauranger. Fantastiskt serviceminded värd som fixade allt från Tonicwatter till förslag på rundturer. Helt klart återkomma om vi passerar Johannesburg igen. Fin miljö, pool och en fin hemma hos känsla.
