Can you give a place more than an 'excellent'? We stayed 4 nights, at Zoo Lake B&B, as the first part of a South African bicycle/safari trip. After a long journey, we were greeted by the most gracious and welcoming host - with a wonderful light lunch. The room was lovely and the grounds are beautiful. Zoo Lake is in a great location - a short and safe walk to a section with small cafes and shops. Breakfast's were wonderful - prepared and presented, with flair, by our gracious host. Sylvia was more than helpful. Her dinner recommendations were spot on and we enjoyed every meal. Our experience at Zoo Lake B&B is part of the great memories of our trip.

no words can describe how excellent my stay was at Zoo lake B&B, the owner really knows how to make a person feel at home, she is truly in the right business, her rooms are out of this world, her breakfast is to die for, overall she is the best. Sylvia keep up the good work, i wish you all the best in the future..Til we meet again

What a treat! My first stay at Zoo Lake B&B, and certainly it won't be my last. An elegant, tranquil enclave with a generous, lovely host. The rooms, service and dining are outstanding, and one of the best to be found in any B&B. I look forward to returning one day.

Unfortunately we only came to stay for one night at this awesome B&B but I will be sure to book it again on our next trip to Joburg. The rooms are beautiful, the breakfast divine, and nothing is too much trouble for the lovely host, Sylvia. It is very conveniently situated and easy to get to on public transport, we used the Gautrain and Uber for our stay. Thanks for having us Sylvia, we will be back!

I could not recommend a better place to stay in this busy city, the rooms are beautiful, the garden is tranquil and peaceful. The beautiful cat that welcomed us was so lovely I wanted to steal him! Our gracious host was warm and inviting and really made us feel like we had arrived home after a long absence, the gin and tonics in our room were most welcome and the breakfast we had the next morning was utter perfection, I will never stay anywhere else when I travel to JHB!!
