Highly recommended! A jewel in Johannesburg!
What a delightful place! Magnificent design and even better management! Gordon, from our very booking, went out of his way to make sure that we had the information and assistance we needed. It is very rare to receive such outstanding service. The guesthouse is very tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. Gordon and his team are fabulous hosts. Kind, accommodating, good-natured and fun, Gordon even provided me complementary driving lessons! Breakfast was excellent, and so was the host. I booked because this place received outstanding reviews and am pleased to report that it did not disappoint. Rather, Thornton Gap Guesthouse largely surpassed expectations. Highly recommended!

Home in Johannesburg
It was just awesome!!! The owner Gordon and his staff.. everything was great. I will never forget a warm welcome. I messaged Gordon from the airport to let him know I was coming. When I arrived and saw his staff, I wasn't even finished with my sentence, and I didn't even give my name to her, but Gordon heard my voice and called my name and stuck his head with a smile and welcomed me. Such a personalized treatment and I am sure every person who stays here feels happy. It is definitely a Home away from home as his welcome note says. Breakfast was awesome!! Absolutely loved it.
