I have known this property for many years and used to be very quiet with few rooms but now developed with many more rooms and staff but still keeps it's friendly charm. Lovely settings in quiet residential surroundings opposite the golf course.

Booked and prepaid my room. Upon arrival they had given it to someone else. They were then fully booked. I was sen5 to another hotel. Would never recommend this hotel. Will not reply to my request for a refund. Terrible

Lovely lodge
This was our first stop after getting of the plane, we got there earlier than the check in time, really friendly staff who showed us where everything was and our room was ready before our check in time, we to use the facilities whilst waiting, room clean and pleasant.

4/10 Fair

Major discrepancy between what is on the booking site and in real life, e.g. advertised as jetted bathtub and shower, but the bathroom did not have a bath. See-through curtains instead of the advertised curtains with block-out. "Premium bedding" turned out to be average at best - in addition, no top sheet; you sleep directly under the duvet, and I am not so sure that the duvet cover is washed every time. Breakfast was disappointing. To top it all, I was charged R20.00 for a glass of flat Coke being poured from a 2L bottle. I inquired about the charge as the listed price in the brochure was R15.00. The response was simply: " the prices went up, but we have not updated the brochure yet".

8/10 Very good

Enjoyable stay
We enjoyed staying at Africa Paradise. Benoni is a bit far from many of the tourist attractions, but we always felt very safe and we really appreciated the free, secure parking. The fact that a full British breakfast is included is a plus. Be aware that the airport shuttle is a BMW sedan - we had a lot of luggage, but Tesh, the driver made it work. Tanke gave us some good suggestions of things to do and corrected problems as they arose. The only two negatives were no refrigerator in the room and we were underwhelmed with both quality of food and service when ordering dinner at the hotel. Given that there are no restaurants within easy walking distance and we were uncomfortable walking or even driving after dark we would have liked the hotel to provide a better dinner dining experience.

2/10 Poor

Worst hotel experience ever
Worst booking ever. Room offered didn't have a bathroom and you had to go up stairs and share a bathroom with 2 other rooms. None of this was ever communicated. Had to walk around the guest house in the middle of the night trying to locate the toilet. The TV in the room didn't work. 2x single duvets used on a double bed. Don't think it gets any worse than this place service wise. Blinds were outside the room which means there's no privacy.

Amazing place to stay
My wife and I had been on a 4 day safari in Kruger where we had little in terms of running water and electricity. After a few late nights, early morning infs and sitting around a camp fire every night, we were tired and smelly. When we arrived at this place, I felt like the fresh prince of Joberg. Modern, safe luxury place, really friendly staff, rooms are very comfortable and a decent size pool where you can also relax by. Would really recommend it to anyone.
