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.

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!

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!!

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 Koos J Kriek van Bloemfontein

I enjoyed a great 2 weeks in your place. The house is beautiful and very well equipped. You and your husband were very friendly and extremely helpful, making me feel at home in the house.

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
