I thoroughly enjoyed staying at Amanzi. The location was perfect for my needs; I loved the beautiful stone buildings, the garden with its huge Jacaranda tree which helped to instil a sense of calm after stressful work days; my room was beautiful and convenient and I slept so well in the comfortable bed; the wifi was great; and Pam and Rob were so kind and helpful.

We, the Amanzi team, are so happy you found the garden destressing, and calming! I hope you will stay with us again when you are next in Joburg!

We spent 3 amazing weeks in Amanzi Guest House when we first moved to South Africa. We felt absolutely at home with Pam & Rob who are incredibly warm and caring hosts. A lovely green, quiet and magical place which our 20-month daughter explored every day and enjoyed. Very child friendly, safe and comfortable, with a beautiful garden and impressive bird life. Excellent location near Hyde Park mall while at the same time very tranquil and relaxing. We loved our stay and we miss the place already!

People who like books are the best kind of people. People who like books and create beautiful spaces, oases from the city - the kind of space that makes you feel like you are on a retreat - are better. Amanzi is an oasis and a perfect place to relax or work from. The light and space in the loft is amazing, the bed super comfy, and the wifi very fast. Pamela and Rob were helpful with recommendations and made a great breakfast (home baked bread, eggs, great mushrooms, yoghurts - the lot!). They even went above and beyond to jumpstart our car. We definitely would come back to stay, and recommend to others.

Dear Bantam-hen
Guests who enjoy books are great, but guests who read and travel are the best!
It was fun to talk and share books read, And you are our first guests from Panama too!
So happy you felt that Amanzi was an oasis in the city, and you were super comfortable.
It’s really encouraging when guests feel so at home in this city which gets such bad press.
Thank you for your lovely review, and Rob and I hope our paths cross one day again. You know you will always be welcome to stay at Amanzi!
Warm regards
Pam

Better than home away from home. My children & I spent over 5 months at Amanzi Guest Lodge in Craighall Park. We loved every minute, from the exceptional accommodation, incredibly delicious home cooked breakfasts, gorgeous environment, wonderful library, to the wonderful hospitality & overwhelming assistance from Pam, Rob & the team (Thabang, Deli, Lena, Ryan and Leeane). No request of ours was too much trouble. The staff were extremely accommodating at all times & bent over backwards to ensure our stay was more than pleasant. Thank you, we will definitely stay again

Gosh! Thank you so much for your really lovely review - we loved having you and your children stay with us, and in the 5 months you felt truly part of the family!! It was easy to bend over backwards to help you in any way we could! The Amanzi team misses you three but wish you well in your new life :)

I travel a lot and Amanzi is one of my favourite guesthouses! I love the apartments which are well equipped and very comfortable, with their beautiful garden views. Pam and her great team made me very welcome and take care of every need!
