A wonderful and cozy place with a homely feel to it. Bernard was extremely considerate and accommodated my requests of late check in and check out. Lovely breakfast. Stayed there just for a night so couldn't interact much with Bernard but it was all good.

My mother and I enjoyed our stay. The room was clean and the staff were very friendly. It was a short walk to 27 boxes where you can do some shopping and eat. Also, 7th St is near by with restaurants and bars. Was very convenient to get to. Would recommend to others who are visiting Joburg.

Just as last time, my stay at Bernard's guest house was great. The place was comfortable, centrally located, and well managed. Communication was also great and Bernard and his staff were very accommodating. I had to change my booking last minute to stay one extra night and they were able to accommodate me without issues. I would definitely recommend a stay at Bernard's! Thanks again Bernard and team for your hospitality!
