Our five days in this beautiful B&B cannot be over rated. There are only 5-stars available and our lovely hostess deserves them all. The quiet home, beautiful grounds and comfortable rooms, with outstanding breakfasts. Even have robes for guests in the room as would any 5-star facility. Faye was most helpful and gave us the best places for dinner. While you are there, check out Joseph, a delightful gentleman who handles the grounds, out luggage and even gave out rental car a quick little bath. This is life a home away from home and we would not hesitate to recommend it.

House and rooms were neat and cozy.

I visited for 4 days. Chris went out of his way to help from arranging for airport shuttles to dropping me at the venue in the mornings and picking me up afternoons . Nice, quite place ideal for business travel and leisure. Very friendly staff.

We stayed at La Bougain Villa where we had a very nice flat in a wonderful environment (nice garden, swimming pool, tennis court). Chris was a perfect host and the breakfasts prepared by Georgina were quite delicious. Moreover, the price was attractive: 680 ZAR per night. We highly recommend this B&B. For sur, we will come back to La Bougain Villa when we return to Johannesburg.

Our 2 nights at La Bougain Villa were a gift from our daughter after we had attended our granddaughter's wedding, and we were thrilled with it! Our suite was very spacious - a bedroom & lounge plus large bathroom & shower and a separate toilet. Fay was a perfect hostess and provided us with tea, coffee & biscuits as well as a bowl of fruit in the room.She served a delicious breakfast in the dining room overlooking a patio & well kept garden. Outside our bedroom window was a rose garden where the bushes were just beginning to burst into bloom - I would love to return in a few weeks' time to see the display.

We found La Bougain Villa online whilst we were looking for a place to stay before our tour started with Acacia. Fay, who manages this beautiful B&B is great. We had fantastic conversations with her and she went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable, at home and having a memorable stay.
The area of Dunkeld is safe and we walked to the shopping centres a couple of kms away and it was fine. The street is well patrolled and we felt very safe. We were given local recommendations from Fay, she booked a Soweto tour for us, and even drove us to the tour meeting spot a few blocks away at 6am in the morning with a packed fruit bag!
We truly felt at home and we were so glad we stayed at La Bougain Villa. We had a large suite upstairs with a large bedroom, large lounge room and large bathroom all to ourselves. With snacks, tea and coffee and a fridge, we were very comfortable.

I would definitely recommend staying here and this is where we will stay the next time we are in Joberg. Thanks Fay!

What an amazing place - I've now been back 3 times with superb experiences on each occasion. Hyde Park is a safe place (by Johannesburg standards), virtually next door to the British Consulate with a Fournos Bakery down the road. Bougain Villa has a relaxed garden with pool, tennis courts and patio to have breakfast or afternoon tea. The rooms are spaceous and comfortable. Sandton and RoseBank mall are close by and there's cricket at Wanderers Ground within walking distance.

I have been staying two to three times a year for quite a few years at La Bougain Villa. I would not go anywhere else. Chris and his staff Georgina and Joe are absolutely adorable and I always feel as welcome as in my family. I also feel totally safe. Most importantly for me, it is absolutely quiet. There are several rooms, all of a very good size, with ensuite bathrooms. There is a small shopping mall within a 5 minute-walking distance. The Rosebank and Hyde Park shopping centers are sligthly farther afield, less than a 10 minutes taxi ride, though. I would not stay anywhere else. Long live La Bougain Villa!

I stayed for an extended period of time, but enjoyed my stay. The play was lovely - the room, the grounds etc. The staff were all very friendly and helpful - Chris, Joe and Georgina.

I'd certainly recommend the place.
