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.

We were very disappointed when we saw our room, it was very small, the bed occupied 89% of the room and we had a baby with us. The cleaning staff broke a cup and did not replace it, there were only two coffee cups to use in the room and we had to use the roken one. Breakfast was not included in the high price, we had tompay R100 additional pp for breakfast. The photos online were misleading, the rooms look bigger in the photos.

Response from Corne Muller, Owner at Summer Garden Guest House (The Palms)
Responded 13 Nov 2023
Good morning Natasha, I would suggest that you do not make use of third parties when making bookings. Always contact the accommodation establishment directly for better rates as no commission needs to be paid to the third party. You have chosen the smallest room for your budget. All information regarding your stay was on the third party website. I will definitely follow up on the broken cup, as it is unexceptionable to have it in the room. Kind regards. Summer Garden

“When arriving at Summer Garden, we were greeted by our friendly and courteous host, Anton. He showed us to our beautiful accommodation, that had more than we needed for the stay. The accommodation has plenty of amenities, and all rooms open up to the garden. It was a lovely stay, thank you.”

While I could not fault much with the stay at Summer Garden, Except maybe the sprinkler system turning on at 6am right outside my window, I have to say that it would be good if there were bar facilities especially for guest not heading out for dinner.

The staff were very quick and friendly to accommodate us after we experienced a terrifying night at another guest house (OR Tambo guesthouse-health hazard!). The rooms and facilities, everything is so well maintained and CLEAN! Thank you so much for the good service. We enjoyed it and we felt at home.

Facilities and accommodation are really great! However, I would suggest some sort of notification of load shedding hours to be available daily for guests as well as emergency lights in each room for load shedding. Most guests are not local and would therefore not be aware of when load shedding would be and for how many hours, so all of a sudden you are left in the dark at 10pm!

Went with my 6 year old son. Had a great stay. They have a generator for load shedding. There are a number of food places very close. Friendly staff, had an aircon in our room with heating function. They have a pool and playground for the kids.
