Very nice, friendly and helpful owner. Good and safe location, near to street with restaurants and to the mall. Lack of public transport. Clean, kitchen has basic products like corneflakes, milk, tea and coffe, so you don"t have to buy it.

I always stay at Margarets place during my frequent business trips to JHB, as the location is quiet & ideal between the airport and workplace, as well as being close to Bedford Centre with its many shops and restaurants. The friendly service is excellent and rooms comfortable and clean.
