This hotel is a gem. We were looking for a 2 night stay at a quiet, nice hotel to avoid the huge airport hotel experience. We had been traveling for 3 weeks by car and just wanted to relax in a safe, comfortable hotel before our departure by air. This hotel is lovely, so well cared for and the staff...

Thanks to Laurence and Alida for organising our trip to Victoria Falls and then the amazing Blue Train to Cape Town! Everything was spot on including all our transfers and lovely hotel at Vic Falls. Journeys Inn Africa was just right for our overnight stay in Jo'burg - friendly, good food and spotlessly clean. Thanks again for your professional friendly...

Had a 13hr layover and booked a stay at the guest lodge. Very friendly staff, clean facilities and all round decent comfort and privacy. Affordable and not far from OR Tambo. The staff literally opened the kitchen out of hours for me so I could have a meal before my flight.

The staff was very friendly and rooms were very clean. I wish there can be a free personal braai stand.The pool was always clean and we always find the rooms clean whenever we come. Their approach was world class

Enjoyed the room design a lot, simple and cosy, very clean. The self service bar is a very neat idea, and the staff was very reliable. In the morning the garden was beautiful and quiet and I felt that the whole place has charm.

My wife and I stayed for two nights and our overall experience was wonderful. We booked transfers to and from the hotel as well as a guided tour day journey through Joburg and Soweto. The supper we were served the second night was amazing. We can't recommend this enough if you are looking for safe, clean, relaxing and convenient.

A genuinely pleasant guest house with friendly staff and good food. I wanted somewhere away from the city, but unfortunately didn't realise that it's on the flight path to O.R Tambo airport. Not so good for a light sleeper like me.
