I had the opportunity to stay here for a couple of days while in South Africa. The rooms are decorated fantastically and are extremely comfortable. They server breakfast each morning with a small buffet and cooked to order eggs. The place has quite a bit of charm and a fantastic restaurant which I found out the last day.

Expensive feel, immaculately clean, high quality linen, furniture, spacious accommodation. There's no science in making the decision to stay at Candle woods than at a hotel. Would never stay anywhere else whilst up in Gauteng again.

Excellent service, beautiful rooms, more than enough space, clean, neat and very efficient staff. I normally stay at Candlewoods with my JHB/PTA business trips and had absolutely no problems over the past 6 years that I have stayed there. Extremely safe as well

We were not met on arrival at 15:30, bed was noisy and creaked all night, breakfast staff were rude and unhelpfull. Not a very nice experience, attractive location but bed and staff lets this place down.

It was my 3rd visit and I still love this guesthouse! Being there always feels a bit like holiday. Beautifully furnished, sitting on the terrace in the evenings is wonderful. Very quiet in a safe Estate. Shopping and some restaurants very close. I was lucky to have colleagues as drivers. Taxi is not easy to get, should be pre-ordered. A... More

I was booked into Candlewood by our Company Travel Agents for 2 nights while doing work in Centurion and PTA. Firstly, the area is in a rather industrial area and is new so it is not on most GPS's so it is hard to find - I suggest you get proper directions from the N1 highway. On arrival at the... More

I would have liked it if someone could have welcomed me the first day of my arrival. Breakfast was excellent! The rooms are beautifull and clean! Better cellphone coverage would have been nice, but that has nothing to do with Candlewoods I suppose.

The guest house was relatively easy to find from O.R. Thambo International Airport. I got there after the reception staff has left, but my keys were waiting for me on the reception desk with very clear instructions on where my room is and on the breakfast arrangements for the next morning. The decoration and furnishing of the guest house is... More

My stay at the magnificent Candlewood will always be memorable. The staff is super friendly and the rooms are well-kept and clean. It is situated at one of the most quiet and beautiful areas. Enjoyed awesome views from my balcony. It was worth every cent.

The place was excellent, rooms are neat and I was just not happy with breakfast, you have to wait for long to be served, and there was no wide spread to choose from the food being served at breakfast.
