My family & i had a pleasant stay at Waterfront Guesthouse. I had a bad experience once at another guesthouse in PE years ago so i was not sure when booking.

This is such a lovely guesthouse situated in a very quiet area. The kids shared a room while we had our own room. Just outside the kid's room was a lovely doll house and toys for the 4 year old to play with - that was another highlight! The breakfast was delicious every morning and JoAnne is always friendly and helpful. Parking was safe and secure in a safe neighborhood too. Loadshedding did not dampen our stay there, lights were provided and loadshedding schedule communicated on time.

There will definitely many more visits with my family after this one. As the kids say... we have another home at Waterfront Guesthouse. Thank you for being a lovely hostess and making our stay a memorable one.

PS : The pictures on the internet don't do justice. The guesthouse is very modern and classy.

Big thank you to JoAnn for her excellent hospitality. The guest house is clean and homely. They make a mean breakfast :-) Situated in Randburg and an easy-travel distance to restaurants, etc. Beautiful, well-maintained gardens.

Such friendly staff, clean and comfortable accommodation, relax in the garden, a little haven with lots of birds, and don't miss out on the excellent breakfast. Close to everything, so very convenient. Thank you for the stay, see you again.

Very disappointed at the unfriendliness of the place. Icy room wasn't heated on arrival, the breakfast was not satisfying and requests were denied. Room comfortable and quaint but bring everything you need. Not even a Coke on sale! And no shops nearby.

This quiet quaint little guest house is a must stay for any couple or person who is tired and rundown from the everyday Hussle and bustle of the big city, situated only 5km from city centre, The Waterfront Guest House offers any traveler all the creature comforts of home, from a warm freindly welcome of it's General Manager Joann, comfortable beds and accommodation, beautiful garden setting and of course a good hearty breakfast in the morning. I would definitely return. Thank you once again Joanne for welcoming us and we will see you again.

Comfortable rooms and very pleasant garden. Joanne is an extremely helpful and friendly host. We have always enjoyed our stays there. It is centrally located to shopping malls and business areas. We highly recommend Waterfront Guesthouse.

Grounds and gardens are very pretty and rooms are clean. However, parking is a colossal mission as one has to park tandem behind other guests which results in having to negotiate as to who is leaving when. I also had to leave my car outside in the street at times which is unacceptable for a guest house of this supposed rating. Not all rooms have en suite bathrooms which means crossing a passage in front of other guests to get to the bathroom. As I knew this was the case when booking, I can't complain too much, but it would help if they put a manual lock on the door!

Response from DreamBreaks, Manager at Waterfront Guest House
Responded 03 Mar 2015
Dear Caroline Thank you for your valued review. Your frustration about the parking is understandable. We were fully booked this weekend and unfortunately you and your husband both had cars. We are in a secure boomed and gated area and even though the street parking which is situated directly in front of the dedicated security guard’s post is not the first choice, it has to be used on the odd occasion to provide for the overflow parking. The bedroom that you moved into on your second night is by no means comparable to your first room, it is the only room which is not en-suite and is preferably used for children of families staying in any of the other rooms, especially those on either side of it. Special mention is made about the bathroom on booking as well as in the resort fact sheet received on confirmation of booking. The key for the bathroom is on the room keys and we are installing a slide lock on the inside of the door as an added measure. Thank you for staying with us, we wish you well with your move and look forward to welcoming you back to the guesthouse when next you are in South Africa. Kind Regards Joanne Gallo Guesthouse manager
