My family and I stayed at Garden Place Guest Houses for 24 days during the month of April 2018. And it was amazing! The rooms were great: cozy, spacious, comfy beds and good facilities. The surrounding gardens were fantastic and created a relaxing atmosphere, and we - especially the kids - had some good fun in the two swimming pools. In particular, we would like to emphasize the friendliness and terrific service of the staff that works there, and a very special and warm THANK YOU goes to the nice host couple, Veronica and Phillip, for their kindness and hospitality. Looking forward to seeing you again and staying at the Garden Place Guest Houses the next time we come to Joburg :-)

Brendan Wolmarans-Hi everyone! Please trust me that this guesthouse is one of the most amazing experiences ever! To start off, the hospitality is amazing. The service is impeccable from coming home to a spotless room to waking up to an amazing, homey, warm breakfast to start your day. When you first arrive you will meet the most amazing management couple who will take your needs into consideration above all. Nevermind the service and all of that, the garden itself is something that will blow your mind! Ever angle you look you will feel as if you're in a fairy garden full of nature and the sounds of birds giving you a sense of safety and enjoyment. So wether you want to be inside or outside you'll always be comfortable. The experience I had was something I'll never forget, for me Johannesburg= garden place guest house. I hope you all book in here because I HIGHLY recommend it :)!!!

Staff were very accommodating and helpful. Rooms clean and comfortable. If you love birds, this is a wonderful place to sit in the garden and enjoy the sounds! Lush grounds, even during a Johannesburg winter. I would go back.

I stayed here whilst on business. On arrival I was horrified as this is certainly not the advertised 4* but only a wannabe 2* but I decided to stay for convenience. Positives include: The shuttle service to close by facilities, the price seems comparable, close proximity to a number of really good restaurants, helpful staff, the breakfast is suitably varied and good, dinner (on request) was very goo, the rooms are clean, it meets all your basic needs from iron to fridge etc Negatives: the decor is in a time warp, it feels like they have collected old fashioned thrown out furniture and decor to furnish rooms and common spaces, sheets are so old they are frayed and towels aren't fluffy anymore, the gardens are very overgrown making the place feel dark and dodgy, the strange garden decorations and signs should most definitely be removed as they actually are creepy
