Such a fantastic, quaint guesthouse; the rooms are spacious and welcoming. The garden is beautiful all year round, with a swimming pool perfect for families of all ages. Close to the OR Tambo Airport and to various shopping malls, with antique shops and cafés a block away.

Two names to remember there are Gavin & Kaya. Most of my trips to Johannesburg, I stayed there as there are various possibilities of room size. Be it a lonely business trip or a 4pax family trip, House on York can easily accommodate you unless it is 200% fully booked. If 100% fully booked, call Gavin and he'll make you...

What a lovely B&B. Such a tranquil setting in beautiful gardens near the airport. The pool and sauna are stunning. The rooms were clean, well decorated and very comfortable. The personal service from the owner was the cherry on top. Many thanks.

The bed was really lovely. The patio had bird poop on the furniture and all over the stoep. It could easily be more charming but requires some attention to the details. Very central Kensington location.. a quick walk away from Queen Street.

The property is located in a quiet suburb and the rooms are beautifully furnished, spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. The jet-shower was amazing, and small touches make it so much more than expected. The staff and owner are wonderful and helpful, and available at all times. Excellent value for money!

We stayed at House on York recently with our 2 children aged 2 and 4. It was just what we were needed...very quiet and peaceful despite being a stone throw away from a super bustling part of the area. Best of all for us was the owner Gavin's wonderful warmth and hospitality. We would highly recommend staying here for the...

A little piece of tranquility in the frenetic energy of Johannesburg. Lovely clean and well maintained rooms with access to a multitude of local restaurants representing the diverse cultures living in and around Kensington. Friendly and accommodating staff and owner. Will definitely return as it is not only central but gives one a real taste of Old Joburg. Great Stuff!!!
