We chosen the name - BY BUSH TELEGRAPH - to our guest house because it refers to communication. We hope that after you experienced our outstanding accommodation, quality comfort and memorable guest service and More facilities, then you will spread the word on our behalf. Our beautiful quirky Sardinian styled guest house stands out like a white jewel in the green countryside of the Randjesfontein Equestrian Estate in the centre of Midrand. Our accommodation is a rural country haven that is conveniently located to where you need to be and yet gives an escape to unwind after a hard working day. Relax in our cozy railway-sleeper Pub. Enjoy your favorite nightcap upstairs on one of our decks with lovely views. Indulge yourself in our home-cooked dinners served in our restaurant, pub. Take a dip in our inviting swimming pool. Take a walk in our luscious gardens. "We look forward to exceeding your expectations and delivering a standard of service that separates us from the ordinary." Less

Response from BBTLodge, Manager at By Bush Telegraph Lodge
Responded 29 Sep 2018
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. Once again, I would like to apologize for the inconvenience caused by the confusion with the location of our property. As I explained to you before, the distance between our property and other locations displayed by online booking websites are not in our control. However, we have learned from the situation. Therefore going forward we will advise all our guests booking via online travel agents about the travelling distance between Midstream Estate and our guest house. We understand your frustration with the confusion of our guest house’s location. Nonetheless we regret to see that you have left really low ratings for all our services and facilities including: value, sleep quality, rooms, cleanliness and also for service. We would like to ask for some pointers from you about what was wrong the aforementioned services of ours? There is always room for improvement. But not knowing what is it you weren’t happy about (other than our location) leaves us with no direction, really. We look forward to hearing from you.
