This was my third stay here. The Bluswan offers a very convenient location if your agenda is taking you to the northern suburbs of Johannesburg or to Midrand. Well signposted and near to all the amenities you might need. This luxurious guest house offers a great location, well-appointed bedrooms and a made-to-order breakfast. The staff are all very helpful and friendly. They have a mini gym, pool, tennis court and - importantly - a tree swing which all of us have used! There's no room service, but you could order in, or dine nearby or buy something which you could leave in one of the handy fridges.

Thuli and the staff are exceptionally helpful.
This beautiful property is 15 minutes from Sandton yet feels far from the city bustle.
The rooms are immaculately cleaned and the guest have their own come and go keys which does not restrict if you arrive late from the office.
The gym faculty is great to keep up routine.
Will definitely recommend and be back.

Stayed at Bluswan twice now, last time in November 2016. The rooms are wonderful, with great ensuites. The breakfasts are great, pool and gardens are lovely, and the location is very convenient. Depending on the room you are in, wifi signal can be a bit weak, but not an issue for us. Have booked a 3rd stay again in May - it's a great place to stay.

Room Tip: All rooms look lovely

We stayed here for one night, as we arrived in Joburg one day before our onward flight. As others have commented, this is a beautiful house and every room is very comfortable. The breakfasts are excellent and this is one of the nicer, safer areas of the city. Very convenient for Sandton City as well, for those visiting on business. Our stay was marred by some minor niggles. We arrived at the agreed time to find that no-one was there to let us in. Our phone calls to find out what was going on were not very well handled and in the end we waited over half an hour, parked out on the driveway in very hot sunshine at the end of a 600km car journey, until eventually a member of staff arrived to let us in. When the time came to leave, we were also delayed because the staff member on duty couldn't verify whether our deposit had been paid and therefore couldn't take our word that it had been, but didn't seem to know what to do to resolve the situation, which meant more hanging around at a time when we wanted to get away smoothly and quickly. In the end it took one of our group losing their temper to get things unblocked and to their credit, the staff member in question gave us a small discount to compensate us for the inconvenience we had suffered. As I say, these are minor faults but annoying ones. Don't be put off using this lovely house, but do allow time for 'inefficiencies'.

One other point: the Wifi worked fine in all rooms on our visit. It is a standard NetGear router and is located in the hallway at the top of the stairs on the first floor. There were no speed issues at all.

A pleasant relaxed atmosphere in the centre of the city. Large well-appointed rooms and helpful staff. Large pool and gardens give a homely feel. Shame that a few minor blips and missed attention to detail prevent a first class report. Minor points make good places great.
