Review by Abigail Godsell (Johannesburg)

This guesthouse has wonderful ambiance, a beautiful setting, and is easy to access and a great place to get out of the hustle and bustle and stress of say, working at or attending events at Gallagher Conference Center which is a stone's throw away.
What makes it completely magical however, is the owners'and manager's hospitality and wonderful engagement with their guests. If you can find a reason to spend a night or two here, do!

Review by Jules Cranfield (London UK)

A lovely plot full of old buildings set among colorful gardens and a real retreat for the night in a busy city. The welcome is warm and the breakfast absolutely lovely. Thank you again, Sonia see you next year!!

Review by Sally Howes (Pietermaritzburg, Natal)

We couldn't have wanted for a more charming, quiet and comfortable place to stay in Jhb. The rooms were spacious and tastefully decorated without being overdone, and every aspect of a comfortable stay had been considered. The hosts were friendly but lefts us be. It was one of the nicer places I've ever stayed.

We love staying at Bag End Guest House. Whenever we go to Gauteng, this is the place we will stay. The relaxed country style quirky house and hospitality is what we like. Sonia is a excellent host.

The facility is neat, clean, stylish and secure. The breakfast was beautiful and tasty and served with an early morning smile. The manager is friendly and has an excellent customer focus. I will return for a second stay and can personally recommend this accomodation facility.
Thanks Sonia

Review by Grant Higgo (Cape Town)

Just a short mail to say “thank you” to you, your Family and staff for making our Family’s stay at Bag End such a thoroughly pleasurable experience!
I have been to Gauteng many times and never have I experienced such a quiet, peaceful and restful retreat, so close to the urban hub of the City.
Thank you also for making such an effort to accommodate us with our 6 month old baby in the middle of winter!
I would not hesitate to recommend Bag End Guesthouse as a top accommodation option in the Midrand.
Kind regards
Grant Higgo

What a delight to discover this beautiful tranquil place - the ambiance of gentle grace.
Hospitality warm & welcoming. I have actually stayed at Bag End Guest house for a few weeks during 2010 when I moved house - it was A home from home
Will be back - no doubt. Highly recommend this beautiful place.
