You need to provide your guests with alternative power when Eskom load shedding hits. This was the biggest let down. Load shedding has become a norm and even in our homes we have alternative. One evening we had to have dinner very late coz we couldn't cook. Otherwise a very wonderful place. very quite indeed and very secure.

Uxolo is brilliantly located for easy access to many areas in Joburg. The rooms are a good size, the beds superb and a chilled atmosphere. There is a great pool area and good work space. The only issue is load shedding and as a result loss of wifi.

When we travel or seek an escape, we want a place that we can feel comfortable in. A place we can laugh with the staff and have relatable conversations. Be free and just enjoy, that's exactly what we got and more. We loved the place and stay. Thnx

Cons: Driveway in a bad state of repair to narrow parking area Guest welcome not professionally done - untrained staff and then rudeness toward us when we complained, put us off staying here Went to look at rooms and found the carpets to be dirty and that we couldn't stay in an inter-leading room which we had booked. We left i.e. did not stay at Uxolo Guest House, after a most unfortunate interaction with the owners, one in person and one over the phone. We left. I wanted a full refund for the above reasons. To top it, while reconciling my bank accounts, I noticed that I had over-paid them through links that they sent me requesting payment. Now, over a month later I am still liaising with Booking.com who is trying to assist me in getting the overpayment back. I have emailed Uxolo Guest House three times, I have sent them whatsapp messages and I have tried calling them. They have not replied to any of my attempts to contact them. They have not taken my calls and they were evasive when my husband called them from his number which was uknown to them. Be careful if you choose to book to stay here.

Pleasant stay at Uxolo Guest House. The staff was friendly. There were a few minor problems; 1. Broken toilet seat 2. A plate of kebabs left in the microwave (presumably from a past guest) 3. Microwave was not working. 4. No WIFI coverage in the suite. Other than that, the room was lovely. Linen was clean, and the stay was pleasant.

Uxolo Guest House was perfect for my work visit, with free wi-fi, good security and excellent privacy in a quiet neighborhood. Norwood Mall is less than 10 minutes walk away. Grant Avenue (Norwood) restaurants and night life are less than 2km (a short Uber or Bolt ride) away. Excellent hospitality. I enjoyed my stay so much, that I extended my stay for a leisure mini-break. My preferred choice for my next visit.
