Stayed with family for a long stay. The staff fulfilled all our requests (moving furniture, larger fridge, heaters, extra power adapters etc.) very quickly. Rooms were cleaned every day and towels replaced (not always done at guest houses) We rented a car so didn't use the free shuttle but there were other guests using it daily. Most places we needed...

We stayed with our young son in a lovely cottage at the back of the property and loved it. The staff were amazingly helpful and truly made our time memorable and special. The property is located within easy walking distance to the cafes and shops on Grant Avenue and the Norwood Mall. The area (Orchards) is a quiet residential area... More

My sister and I stayed at the Garden Place for almost 10 weeks. The Management and staff couldn't have made our stay more pleasant. It was a visit for medical purposes and they cared for us like family. Quiet and secure location, a safe area with shops just a short stroll away. Relaxing garden and 2 swimming pools. So glad...

Breakfast wasn't included and it cost R145 per day. Suppose I should'yve asked before eating. Shuttle service for distances under 10km was convenient and for free. The room I stayed in was a bit tired and in need of a makeover.

The rooms are fairly spacious, but overcrowded with old furniture and very run down. The carpets are disgusting and the bathrooms feel grimy, although the units are clean. The outside is pretty and the gardens are lovely, but the pools feel dirty. Good security and pleasant cleaning staff who work so hard and are very accommodating. However, the office staff... More

We stayed here for 2 weeks and found it very convenient. Not just that the staff were friendly, we felt safe and it was very clean and comfortable. There are 2 pools to choose from.

this is a clean place, with friendly staff, picturesque gardens, great facilities and good security. What a pleasure compared to the fleabag on "28 Grant avenue, Norwood", for the same price. This facility is great value for money and I would definitely stay here again.

After staying there many times over the years, we did not get the room that we had specifically requested and been promised and ended up in a room where the neighbors were noisy and we were disturbed by people using the metal stairs alongside the room. The owner treated our complaint with disdain. In addition, the breakfast and wi fi... More
