This was our second visit to De Kuilen and our second time in the Pomegranate Suite. It is a perfect place for a getaway from the hustle and bustle and you leave re-charged every time. The breakfast served is second to none and Anne-Marie and Charles are perfect hosts. De Kuilen is definitely top of our Joburg accomodation list.

Basking in the highveld's autumn colours while enjoying a breath of the Cape in De Kuilen's languid grounds made a business trip to bustling Johannesburg seem like a holiday. De Kuilen offers comfort, tranquility and repose and being on the doorstep of the Sandton business district makes it the perfect place to come back to complete a hard day's work.... More

My husband, one year old daughter and I enjoyed two nights at De Kuilen House while transiting in Johannesburg on the way home from vacation. We wish that we could have stayed longer.

It was the fourth time a stayed in De Kuilen Country House and it was very pleasant again. I will book my stay again the next time I will be in J'burg. The cottages in the garden are like coming home, are very quit. The service of the family and their staff is always good and heart warming.

We feel most apologetic regarding the fact that our beautiful front gate had had its motors damaged by lightning and as we had only just arrived back from our annual break we were trying to deal with the situation.
