About Guest House Chez Esme
Chez Esme is a four star luxury guest house set against Confidence Reef where gold was found in 1884 by Fred Struben, but today is the commercial and industrial powerhouse of Africa. Warm hospitality awaits you with your hostess, Esme.
Situated against the Reef, Chez Esme offers, amidst all the activities of a city, a beautiful view, peace and tranquility in a quiet neighbourhood. Chez Esme has the advantage of offering all the amenities of the city for those who require them, but then allows you to retreat to the much needed rest and recuperation.
After a day of exploring the Gauteng area or doing your business in the financial capital of South Africa, you can relax at the pool and enjoy a braai at our well equipped lapa in the established garden that offers tranquil ambience. Traditional elegance is our Hallmark and warm hospitality awaits you with your hostess, Esme.
Each of the spacious, luxury rooms (all en-suite bathrooms and private entrances) boast beautiful views and is well appointed with heater, TV, (limited DSTV), mini bar, roof fan, coffee and tea facilities, microwave oven, desk and small lounge suite. Beds are dressed with percale linen and rooms have up market amenities. The rooms are all equipped with safety doors and alarm systems. Secure parking is provided (with remote control access).
We offer a diverse range of quality personal services with emphasis on comfort and hospitality. Same day laundry services are available. After a day exploring Gauteng Area, relax at the pool and enjoy a braai at our braai lapa.
Traditional and continental breakfasts served and dinner is available on request.
We are strategically situated with easy access to main and national roads - absolutely convenient and ideal accommodation for the business person or the tourist. Transfer shuttles to and from the Lanseria Airport and Oliver Tambo can be organised.
