Ginnegaap Guest House, Johannesburg
Very Good8.0
Friendly staff and great service
Overall my stay here was very pleasant. The staff were warm and welcoming and took extra care to arrange for a very early morning departure and even made sure that I had breakfast before I left. The room was spacious with separate bathroom and closet areas. My one complaint is that the room was quite chilly with no heat and my visit was in the winter. Electric blankets are provided for the bed at night but, the room itself was too cold to comfortably relax in during the evening. (I understand that central heat is not common in SA but, a few small space heaters available to guests who request them would have made my stay a 5/5.)

We loved it. Everyone is very friendly, the breakfasts are excellent and it is close to shops and restaurants in Melville which is a great area, Also, Jacob, the driver and tour guide is affiliated with the guest house is great as well.

This is a lovely guest house and everything is decorated beautifully. The room and bathroom is very attractive and comfortable. It is possible to walk a short distance to some nice restaurants. Breakfast on the verandah was terrific and of very good quality.
