The owner and the manager went out of their way to help me with various errands. The housekeeper Florence washed my clothes. Service above and beyond. Would be improved with internet access in the rooms.
We loved the huge Rose Room. It was perfect with our young children to have room for a camping cot. We hope to come again and use the pool and playground!
The place looks like a deserted place- upon my arrival it was dark from outside. I got scared ”
I got scared to even go inside- there is no signage to even where the reception area is. Instincts never lie.....when I saw the 2 Paramedic gentlemen approaching my car.....I had to come up with a plan for them to open the gate for me.....the garden was looking so deserted....I just drove off and never got back.
There is no telephone number on the booking confirmation to even call the place and make verifications.
I had a terrible experience of driving into that yard.....
Decent accomodation for a few nights”
I stayed here for a few nights. The room was decent for South African standards. A little on the pricy side but clen. This place is near Melrose Arch, which is a very nice area. It has a lot of shops and nice restaurants. It's about a 15 to 20 mins walk away. Johannesburg has now Uber, so an Uber ride will cost you about R30 which is 2 to 3 dollars.
Outstanding Service, Best In Johannesburg”
Living Accomodation, Room, Food
Abbotsford House is the place to be in Jo'Burg! My wife and I originally booked to stay here at the end of last year. We booked for a short period, but extended our stay an extra month due to business. Vanessa and the staff were extremely understanding and very hospitable the whole time!
The quality of the rooms is absolutely top notch! Everything was clean, and the staff were very prompt in cleaning and providing everything that we needed. Also, the food is phenomenal! If you are planning to stay here, we advise that you include breakfast (and even lunch and/or dinner) with your reservation. The quality is completely worth it hands down.
Overall, booking your stay here will leave you full and incredibly satisfied!

Peaceful hideaway in Johannesburg”
Large room overlooking tranquil garden
Very happy with our room, friendly staff, great breakfasts and amenities. The garden a highlight for us. Make sure you print off clear instructions on how to arrive from the airport. Telephone number not in telephone book. Abbotsford House's taxi driver outstanding, reasonable cost, smartest taxi ever.
Friendly, helpful Guest House”
when we first arrived at abbotsford house there was no room ready for us and the owner was out for a short while. the staff were very friendly and took us to the kitchen and made us tea and coffee and served us a few snacks while we waited for the owner to return.
when she did we learned that because she had another client that wished to extend their stay she booked us into another nearby upscale b&b. the new location was definitely an upgrade. in addition, as a consolation the owner showed us a bit of the city and invited us for supper at abbotsford house.
altogether, while we cannot rate the house very effectively from what we saw and the hospitality we were given give me confidence that this would be an excellent place to stay.
