Africa Centre Backpacker Guest Lodge: Cosy place, with unfortunate reception service

This is a cosy place with very neat decorations with African theme. There is a pool, sauna, pool tables, laundry services, secure parking etc. Buildings are painted with very warm colours which gives a nice ambiance. The property is in a very secure cul-de-sac (monitored with cameras). It is located near the airport which makes it a good choice if you are in transit (although the hotel broshures are a bit misleading about the distance to airport). Having said all these positive points, the reception was awfully unhelpful and rude. When we have buzzed the bell by the front door to get access with our car for the first time, apparently due to the problem in the buzzer, the bell repeated several times, which consequently cause the receptionist yelling at us at the intercom. Indeed this was a very unfortunate start, and when we told that we buzzed the bell only once, the receptionist was not apologetic. This bad start marked our experience in this hotel, and not getting the laundry at promised time did not help either. In contrast, the lady at the bar was nice and friendly.

protea hotel and spa by the lakes: jozi best lake over looking hotel

I had the time of my life although its pricey but its worth every cent, located infront the swan lake and the tranquility is amazing cause its in a city. The service is fantastic and we had no problem the room was cleaned every day and i loved the fresh smell. The interior desighn matched the surrounding and i loved it.

Ideally situated only 10km from Johannesburg International Airport, as well as the business, shopping and entertainment areas of the East Rand, Protea Hotel The Lakes is the perfect comfort spot.

uniquely-designed Outdoor Cafe, Day Health Spa, Swimming Pool, world-famous ski-world waterski centre or enjoy a game of tennis, golf or bowls nearby. Other sporting activities in the area include horse-riding, swimming and archery.

Villa Victoria: Villa Victoria

Reminiscent of Victorian splendor the tranquility of this gracious double story guest house, with its beautiful garden, in blissfully quiet surroundings, will welcome you with unaccustomed warmth. And, after a good nights rest, greet the new day with a scrumptious breakfast, enjoyed in these beautiful surroundings. Dinner can be arranged. On request a barbeque may be arranged for you, in an old fashioned tennis house on the premises. A special feature is the classical designed Gazebo which can be used for entertainment. Furthermore, a tennis court and swimming pool compliments facilities offered.
