Guesthouse was absolutely lovely. Room was absolutely immaculate and it really felt like a home from home. Gerald and his wife were perfect hosts and really went out of their way to arrange trips, taxis and airport transfers.The guesthouse is in an exceptionally safe neighbourhood - 7th St is a 2 minute walk away and there are numerous bars and eateries (I'd recommend Cafe Mezzeluna!).

Eleanor and Gerald are hosts who know how to look after you and I cannot recommend highly enough this establishment. Alex Ndlovu has to be the best transporter in Joburg.To one and all - thanks and I'll see you in January 09.
