Close to the airport, great staff, cute little bar with fire downstairs to keep warm this winter. If you only have a day or 2 to see Jo'burg, just right to catch a few local museums and even do some shopping.

We found the place to be fantastic and the staff were exceptional. Well done, we will be back soon I'm sure.

I was welcomed by a quite friendly lady - who even came to ask what were my plans for the evening; inviting me to test the chef cuisine of the Saturday night... that helped me considering and only start admiring the service that continued through to the next morning for the Breakfast. If you have a choice, book this place. The homely environment is really like home - you find rest.
