The owner, Salo, was very friendly and always available to assist us. Units are cleaned on a daily basis. I would recommend Linga Longa to anyone looking for accommodation in Glen Marais, Kempton Park.

Great guest house and friendly management.

Have been coming here a few times over the past few years and always feel relaxed knowing that I feel well-catered for. The rooms are clean and well-furnished with self-catering facilities which are always great to know. There is a swimming pool which was also great and the gardens well kept. The management was very friendly and understanding and very helpful with all my needs. Would return as feel at home coming here.

Mother and son overnight stay.

Perfect accommodation for one night as we did not want to travel during the night. My son and I felt safe and comfortable, the units are very neat. The guest house went out of its way to accommodate us with a freshly cooked breakfast the next morning even though it was not pre-booked. Will definitely recommend the guest house if you need to sleep over for a short period.

Friendly owner, friendly staff. Nice breakfast. Very clean place. Nice swimming pool.

The only recommendation I have is that they don't specifically ask you how your eggs must be done. So first morning was scrambled, the next morning was soft sunny side up. I can just imagine someone that likes their eggs in a specific way will have a problem with this, however it was not a problem for me.

Rustige atmosfeer.

Ek en my man het Johannesburg besoek in April 2021, en besluit om by Linga Langa tuis te gaan. Wat 'n aangename ondervinding! Die kamer was uiters skoon, en so cosy. Terwyl ons daar tuisgegaan het, was die motorhek stukkend, en ons het ons motor beskadig met die stukkende hek. Die eienaars het hierdie kwessie baie professioneel behandel, en baie empatie gehad met ons situasie. Hulle het alles t.o.v van die versekering hanteer, en binne 'n paar weke was alles uitgesorteer. Ons sal regtig weer hier bly. See you soon.

Calm atmosphere.

My husband and I visited Johannesburg in April 2021, and decided to stay at Linga Langa. What a pleasant experience! The room was extremely clean, and so cosy. While we were going home, the car gate was broken, and we damaged our car with the broken gate. The owners handled this issue very professionally, and were very empathetic with our situation. They handled everything regarding the insurance, and within a few weeks everything was sorted. We would definitely stay here again. See you soon

Baie teleurgesteld.

Geen lessenaar of werkspasie in die kamer nie. Die skeidingsmuur tussen my kamer en kamer langsaan was so dun dat die muur beweeg as die persoon langsaan beweeg op die bed beweeg en alle gepraat en die TV word duidelik gehoor. By aankoms is die sleutel aan my oorhandig en ek is gewys waar die kamer is, maar geen verduideliking van byvoorbeeld van wat waar is, hoe die WiFi werk, ens nie. Ek is van geen faktuur voorsien nie en is ook nie gevra of ek een vereis nie. Dis is ook die laaste keer wat ek die bestuur/personeel gesien het en geen navrae is gedurende my verblyf gedoen om te hoor of alles in orde is nie. Die skuifhek by die ingang se motor het vanaf aankoms tot met vertrek nie gewerk nie en die hek moes met die hand oopgeskuif word. Die klein yskassie staan regs langs die bed en is 'n steurnis as dit aanskakel en die motor loop. Daar is geen bedlamp/leeslamp van enige aard nie. Die teël-vloer vanaf die slaapkamer in die badkamer in kraak erg as mens daarop loop. Die verkeer in die straat wat verby huis loop kan baie raserig wees in die aand. Die DStv wat beskikbaar is, is baie beperk (wie wil vier sokker-kanale kyk, en geen ander sport nie?) en die TV is die grootte van 'n rekenaarskerm. Alhoewel die kamer skoon was, het dit die voorkoms van iets wat te vinde is op die Malawiese of Mosambiekse platteland. Ek het geen idee hoe hierdie gastehuis 'n Toerismeraad 4-ster gradering gekry het nie. Ek is nie vol nonsens nie, maar reis baie (plaaslik en oor Afrika) en weet wat wat mens behoort te verwag ontvang.

Very disappointed.

No desk or workspace in the room. The dividing wall between my room and the room next to it was so thin that the wall moved when the person next to it moved on the bed and all talk and the TV could be clearly heard. On arrival the key was handed to me and I was shown where the room was, but no explanation of for example where it was, how the WiFi worked etc. I was not provided with any invoice nor was I asked if I required one. It is also the last time I saw the management/staff and no inquiries were made during my stay to hear if everything was alright. The sliding gate at the entrance car did not work from arrival to departure and the gate had to be opened by hand. The small fridge is on the right side of the bed and is a nuisance when it turns on and the car is running. There is no bedside lamp/reading lamp of any kind. The tile floor from the bedroom in the bathroom cracks badly when you walk on it. The traffic in the street that runs past the house can be very noisy in the evening. The DStv available is very limited (who wants to watch four football channels and no other sports?) and the TV is the size of a computer screen. Although the room was clean, it had the appearance of something found in the Malawian or Mozambican countryside. I have no idea how this guest house got a Tourist Board 4 star rating. I'm not full of nonsense, but travel a lot (locally and across Africa) and know what to expect and receive.

My stay was heavenly and blissful.

Linga Longa Guest House is a very beautiful, clean and their interior decor is very exquisite. The company was very friendly and welcoming and attended to me if I wanted to inquire about something. The place is for relaxation, peaceful as my stay was for relaxation, indoor and yet fun. The swimming pool was clean and the gardening was a beautiful sight too. Keep it up. The only thing I saw as an inconvenience was that in the rooms there are no tableware (plates, utensils, saucers, etc) provided, because even if you do not request breakfast, at least there should be a set of plates, utensils for guests doing takeaways or eating out as an option. But that was not a biggie, my stay was pleasing.

Not 4 star quality we would say.

Didn't get the room we booked. No hairdryer or bedside lamps in room as advertised. We had to ask for m top sheet for our beds. There was only a blanket and duvet without a top sheet over the beds. Linen did not feel fresh. Bathroom was thankfully clean. Breakfast was delicious.
