Summer Garden Guest Houses, as the name says, is luxurious Guest Houses situated in very safe and secure areas in Benoni, only 10 minutes away from OR Tambo (Johannesburg International Airport). We pride ourselves in the kind of gracious hospitality most people thought was extinct. Our staff are very friendly and helpful and our facilities in excellent condition. We are a bit more expensive than your average guest house because we are not average. We have generators and water tanks to make your stay enjoyable – (Only at The Palms & The Flower Box! ) We have air conditioners in all the rooms, Wi-Fi that works everywhere on the properties and heat pumps which supplies enough hot water for all our guests as well as ample secure parking. We also have borehole water. Due to the unpredictable and extended load shedding schedules, we have no choice but to increase our prices to provide our guests with extended generator times. We have also installed water tanks on the properties to provide uninterrupted water supply to you to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Because we are a small establishment with only 12 rooms per property the risk of coming into contact with many other people is limited. Apart from that, almost all our rooms have their own entrance doors from the outside, which means that guests have direct entrance to their rooms. We would like to assure you that our safety and hygiene protocols are of the highest standards.

Enjoyed our stay,breathtaking atmosphere very quiet place. The rooms are spacious and the team was quite helpful about the special request we had since we travelled with a baby. Would recommend that the bed linen be changed more often above all the place is well secured and beautiful,will definitely come back.

Summer Gardens is a fantastic place to stay. Central to what I needed, close to main roads and highways and the staff are incredible - they are the reason we keep coming back year after year. It has been painted recently and the entire location is spotless.

I had an excellent stay, thank you for all the assistance and accommodating staff. Whenever I had an issue the staff was always ready to assist me given that I was there for the purposes of studying for my exams.

This is an amazing place to stay, very clean, service amazing, air con, beautiful pool, secure and the best part is Donald who was always available and happy to help in any way he can. He is an asset and so welcoming. Will definitely stay there again but recommend a direct booking rather than via a booking site.
