Great boutique hotel with outstanding service! Well kept grounds, nestled in a residential area, which supported a relaxing environment for the four days we were there. Located a few blocks from local eateries, should you wish to go out. We ate at the restaurant on site and never had a disappointing meal. We finished each night with a bottle (...

We had a quick 16 hours in Johannesburg and needed somewhere to stay. I got the recommendation from Mr and Mrs Smith and it was a lovely boutique hotel. My only compliant was the room was a bit hot but otherwise great. Bed was comfy, bathroom was huge, and everything was spotless. I am not familiar with the area at...

This is a real oasis in the big city of JoBurg. Beautiful property, lovely gardens, well laid out to ensure privacy and quiet. Nice location in beautiful residential area meant it was incredibly quiet at night. Across the street from a big park to walk, jog, or just enjoy the views. The rooms are very well appointed as is the...

Incredibly relaxing hotel within the hub of busy north JHB. The rooms were so quiet, so beautiful, and spacious. The staff went above and beyond on every level from recommendations on great wine, to organising Ubers etc. The location was absolutely perfect - we were able to Uber it everywhere within 10km. A beautiful boutique hotel in a lovely setting...

Great for one night en route from Kruger to Mauritius. Had rooms 1 and 2 in the main house: perfect for a family with two boys (11 and 14). Excellent steak dinner, good breakfast. Nice boutiquey feel.

My son and I stayed here one night on the way through to a safari. Very impressive small hotel. Great service and amenities. This one is a winner from the small pool to the garden setting it as flawless. The restaurant offers a limited menu that was more than enough for what we needed.

My wife and I just returned from 9 days at the Peech Hotel, where I have stayed before. It is truly excellent in every way: the rooms are large enough, impeccably furnished and spotless.
