I always stay at Big Five Accommodation on my business trips to Johannesburg The proprietor Sandy, goes over and beyond my expectations and makes sure yI am comfortable. In the 4 years I have stayed here the standards have been excellent. The rooms, sheets and other facilities are always clean and comfortable. It's always a pleasure to stay.

Relaxed, safe and friendly atmosphere, yummy omelettes and super hosting from Sandy! The informal bar area allows for plenty of after-work banter. The rooms are clean and accomodating. We will no doubt be back!

The room was clean and neat. The staff was friendly. Big 5 is located in a quiet area. A lovely assortment of breakfast choices was available. I recommend Big 5 as a B & B that indeed provides value for money.

What a comfortable place with friendly and welcoming atmosphere. You wish one can even stay longer. The children enjoyed the company of Bobby and the swings. Breakfast is great. I recommend this place for a home far away from home.
