The breakfast was awesome. Their beds are fitted with an electric blanket. Smart tv's with Youtube & Netflix (No DSTV). Super friendly staff and not always in your face. Rooms were clean. I loved their furniture and decor, simple yet elegant.

It is always such a pleasure to stay at Vanilla Guesthouse! Sonja and her team have things running like clockwork! This home in a quite residential street has everything you need for a relaxing stay, whether business or pleasure. The rooms are well appointed with amazing linen, comfortable beds, and TV's with streaming services. An honesty bar in the communal area, is great for a nightcap, or a mineral water after a few nightcaps.

Lovely place and friendly staff. Very professional. Great place to stay for work travel. My only constructive criticisms are that I would prefer that the "desk" did not have the vanity drawer and that the chair would either be taller to adjustable for height. The ergonomics of the desk/chair did not work well for extended work in the evening.

1. Pound for Pound the best place I have stayed in the world although it's small but its excellent...I normally stay at big 5 star hotels in Sandton but don't anymore since I found this gem for 5th of the price... 2. I travel all over the world only staying in very luxurious 5star hotels but this place is the cleanest i have ever stayed in. 3. They just need to improve their breakfast otherwise everything is 7stars... 4. The 2 ladies working around the lodge are lovely & always polite & smiling.

Loved the situation in a quiet and secure neighborhood. The English Breakfast was perfect and the rooms are really comfortable ontop of very reliable Wi-Fi. The private entrance and sense of autonomy within the establishment were perfect for our trip. Super friendly and most helpful service from owner Sonja who is always a phone call away. She was particularly instrumental in helping us keep our baggage safe after checkout, so we could go out and do some shopping to pass time before leaving for our transportation out of the country.

Really efficient, warm, friendly staff. Rooms are fully equipped. Beds were comfy and awesome. Little touches like extra blankets and electric warm blankets too. The only slight negative for us was the tiled floors that were abnormally freezing and we didn’t travel with slippers. Also; we had long hours during the day and night and were looking forward to sleeping in; but the breakfast room and kitchen is the connection point of the bedrooms and we were woken up at 6am on both mornings. If you’re an early starter - that isn’t a problem 💙
