    A beautifully kept classic very old house (claimed to be the oldest in Edenvale) wooden floors and all, has been converted into a very acceptable guest house. Large suites are well appointed and comfortable and a satisfying breakfast. Reasonable rates make for good value.

    Large establishment, with all the basics you need. Huge rooms, in the oldest house in Edenvale. Nice, well established area and quite surroundings. Close to main roads and shopping centres. Just a stone throw away from OR Tambo International airport.
