I’ve just returned from our 4 day stay with my partner at Dalmeny House.
If you are going to Joburg put this on your list of places to stay, it is a very grand old Johannesburg house, perfectly positioned in the safe, quiet and leafy neighborhood of Saxonworld. It has Zoolake Park very close by and it is so easy to Uber anywhere in the city from there, I don’t think we waited longer than 3 minutes for a cab.
The house feels very secure and has an electric gate with security cameras installed. Faith, the housekeeper and her husband live on the property incase we needed anything, she was very helpful and cleaned the room everyday which was quite an unexpected luxury.
The house itself is fully self-catering with a well-equipped kitchen and a large homely dining room and lounge. The room had a very comfortable bed and was stylishly decorated. There is a bathroom and a separate toilet/washroom, which had a good selection of amenities. I really loved and appreciated all the special personal touches such as the fresh flowers in our room on arrival and Faith also put on the most incredible breakfast anniversary spread for us on our first morning.
All in all excellent value for money and a wonderful base for exploring Johannesburg.
