Once on Empire stay in the centre until you reach a t-junction with Annet Road (M18). Turn right into this road which will change into Kingsway.

You will pass Media Park on your RHS and turn right at the next traffic lights into Lothbury Road.

An ABSA call centre and Campus Square shopping centre are now on your LHS. Go through one set of traffic lights, through one traffic circle, Golf Tea Room is ahead of you on the LHS as you are approaching the next traffic circle.

Turn right into 1st Ave and drive down about 400m. We are on the left hand side; the large property with the very high hedge.

We just stayed there for two nights after a 5 weeks holiday-travel in South Africa. It is simply an excellent place to stay:
a lovely garden in a nice and lively quarter of Johannesburg, really nice rooms, a friendly and competent host and team - we could not wish more. And don't miss the Lucky Bean Restaurant!
