Guest Reviews for Sand River Guest House


Breathtakingly beautiful with all the creature comforts, our favourite place to go from now on.
I was very impressed with their attention to detail, my personal request for the room was done with care and at no extra cost. The staff are beyond friendly and accommodating. The room was just perfect, it was clean and tidy and very cozy. Even though we had a storm outside we barely noticed it. The bathroom is spacious and very clean. I love the small shampoo and shower gel bottles. The garden was so beautifully lush and green and it is so tranquil to go sit next to the river. It was truly an amazing experience for my boyfriend and I. We will most definitely be going back very soon. The price was also amazingly affordable and it really felt like we were no where near the city. I would recommend this guesthouse to each and every person I know.

“There was a wide variety of food to choose from. Bacon not too salty like it happens sometimes in other places. The rooms were clean, aircon working properly and wifi very efficient. I also liked the idea of being issued with a remote control for the gate. Its a brilliant idea!”

“Emma and her crew did an amazing job of keeping us happy. We had an issue with our AC in the room and she offered to give us another room without question till she could have the situation corrected. Breakfast was amazing and always served with a smile.”
David, South Africa

“The room is spacious enough. The garden area is to die for, pool overlooking the rooms. There we towels for use at the pool patio area. We had a storm during our visit which knocked out the signal in our dstv but we sat by the patio with my partner reading magazines and it was lovely. Absolutely peaceful place.. You couldn't even tell you were in sandton. ”

Very comfortable elegant rooms, stunning finishes, befitting a professional executive look. Beautiful garden with inviting pool. Value for money and conveniently located. Helpful staff, and great range of choice for breakfast.

Really lovely comfortable stylish accommodation. Johannesburg was cold we came home after a night out to warm room and bed. The guest house helped us arrange drop off and collection from a concert. Very helpful and welcoming.
