Everything was as good as described in the information and the other feedback from guests. The staff were great and the breakfast very good! The only thing was that the WiFi did not work in the room, but that didn't matter much to us.
Thank you for accommodating us on such short notice. The house was conveniently located and very comfortable. The staff was friendly and very helpful.
This was my second time staying at Uxolo and I am more than happy that I returned! The house is beautiful and spacious, the breakfast is good, though the people make Uxolo stand apart. Both our host and the staff have made me feel completely comfortable and welcome, giving us information over breakfast or bringing an extra towel in the middle of the night.
Third time. And it was great again. Will come again next time. The staff is excellent! Very recommendable place
We had a great stay in Aubrey's guesthouse! The room was fine and the staff was excellent. Karen was a very good guide, always helpful and ready to take us whereever we wanted. I will recommend Aubrey's, the place is in a pleasant and central area.
Aubrey guest house is truly a home away from home. My hearty thanks to Rabson, Ella and Thando, they made our stay very comfortable and peaceful. Could get anything I needed, now that am home, I miss the delicious breakfast! I will truly come back. I will sincerely recommend this to any one. Thank you.
Thank you Carolyne for the most amazing review. We really loved hosting you and the ladies over your birthday weekend. Thank you for being so sweet to our staff and for the lovely review left in our guest book. We hope to see you again in future so that you can come back and enjoy the breakfasts!
Aubrey's guesthouse is amazing! So beautiful and comfortable. The many gardens and green spaces are calming and a great place to relax. The beds are comfortable, and my room had a nicely equipped lichen I. It as well. Although I never met her in person, aubrey was friendly and went above and beyond to answer my questions about South Africa ahead of my stay. She has great people taking care of her guests as well. They make sure that you are comfortable and have hat you need. I pan to stay here again, and I highly recommend Aubrey's place to anyone visiting Johannesburg.
