Wonderful place!
The staff was very kind and accommodating. They went above and beyond in their helpfulness. The setting is beautiful and the rooms are very nice. There's a shopping mall within about a 5 minute walk. Dinner and breakfast were both very tasty. Highly recommend.

Very nice ambience,very slow wifi...
A great old colonial home with an interesting history turned into a very nice lodging and restaurant. Excellent service, big rooms, two pools, nice gardens, nice ambience. The only real problem was the week wifi around the whole compound. If you just need wifi for WhatsApp etc, it's fine, but if you need to do some real work on your laptop, it's annoyingly slow. A very cute guard dog a big plus :)

A great stay
It is a really nice place and the historical ambience gives it a little extra. The dinner we ate there during our stay was superb, and again, the setting was great. Breakfast was also really good and the staff were so kind and helpful throughout our stay. There is a shopping mall only 5 mins walk away.

A wonderful old colonial house in the previously exclusive suburb of Houghton, though not quite in its former glory, it is still a fascinating journey into the old Johannesburg. Management and staff were very attentive and supportive

I loved the rustic ambiance and the quiet feel. It was insulated from the city noise outside, like you were in your own world.

The location is great - central to most places. The setting is fabulous - swans and ducks in the garden. Lovely rooms. Areas to improve are lighting (difficult to move around at night in the garden and lighting in the rooms can be improved) and maintenance. It is a grand old property that can do with some paint and other maintenance
