Kevin as our host welcomed our party of six (6) to Bridge House during a stay of 4 nights over the 94.7 Cycle Challenge week. All of us were "out of towners" from Cape Town, UK and Irealnd. Nothing was too much trouble as Kevin assisted us as plans changed on dropping off, storing and collecting our bicycles. The guest...

We had habitually used a Bnb in Craighall Park on our stayovers but found out at the last minute it has closed. I therefore found this place on TripAdvisor and due to unforeseen circumstances , my adult son had to take up the accommodation. He told me that it was superb, the rooms were extremely well appointed and he lacked...

Bridge House is a lovely place to stay within walking distance of the village of Parkhurst and close to Rosebank and Sandton. The rooms are comfortable overlooking a lovely flowing river. The breakfast are good and generous (the pineapple smoothie a winner). Kevin the owner is exceptionally hospitable and a true host - nothing is too much trouble. A real...

We finished up our three week adventure in SA, Zimbobwe and Botswana at the Bridge House. All six of us Canadians took over one of the buildings for one night. A local from Johannesburg that was traveling with us booked it for us. Kevin, the owner, was super helpful in ordering us take out and recommending places to see the...

We spent the night after an evening out in Greenside and loved every second of it. The location is incredible, it's difficult to remember that you're in the middle of a busy area when you're listening to the stream and ducks. The guest house is beautiful and Kevin was wonderful. The whole experience is one we'll definitely repeat.

Our party of 6 booked Bridge House for 2 nights as an arrival stopover in Joburg before travelling around Africa. Kevin was a super host. During our early communications, he also gave me the details for Christopher so I could arrange transfer from the airport directly, which went very smoothly, and Kevin greeted us on arrival, showing us through the...

Hello Eugenie, Glad to hear that you and the family are all safe at home and that you had a great trip. Thank you for the trip advisor report; I must mention that there are heaters in all the rooms.

Spent a couples weekend in the Bridge House and absolutely loved the stay. The view and surroundings were probably some of the best in JHB and the host more than accommodating and willing to go the the extra mile for his guests. Also, excellent bacon. Would definitely recommend.

My husband and I stayed at Bridge House a few times and we absolutely love it there. I wish I could move in full-time! The peaceful setting next to a river, with beautiful trees, is truly stunning and you feel like you're far from the bustle of Joburg, while close enough to lively Parkhurst if you want to get out....
