Excellent host, very clean and quite comfortable. Overall, superb value. In addition, the privacy offered by the all contained unites is truly remarkable for a 'private room' listing. You'll be positively surprised.
I had a fantastic time @ Festina-Lente. It was so good that I chose to stay an extra night! The decor is beautifully done, every comfort is available, and I really could not have asked for a better host-Henrico is wonderfully accommodating and responsive...
Stay here. You will be happy you chose this place.
5 Stars for this amazing place!! Beautiful, peaceful and a place where you can get away from the hustle of Joburg!
Henrico was just wonderful and makes you feel at home..
Thank you so much for everything including the Savanhs ☺️
We had a lovely stay at Henrico's B&B. The decor was amazing with so much detail. He was a great host, friendly yet gave us the space to feel comfortable and at home. Breakfast was delicious, a real treat and a nice surprise every morning. We would highly recommend Henrico's B&B, whether for a business trip or if you're holidaying in Johannesburg.
My husband and I had such a lovely weekend while at Henrico's Festina Lente! The room was immaculately clean, beautifully decorated, and set in a private garden. All of the little touches were there: nice soaps and hand lotions, wine, water, and snacks. Henrico offered us a glass of Champagne before heading out to dinner and in the morning his wife made a delicious and wholesome breakfast. I highly recommend Festina Lente and look forward to our next trip there.
Good South African hospitality: the room itself is very comfortable, and the host and his wife are nice. I enjoyed the stay here and would definitely recommend it.
The location is pretty central as well, William Nicol is easily accessible - to get down to Hyde Park or Rosebank - and the house is super close to Sandton.
Also I think the price is pretty good for what you get.
