Very comfortable and quiet.

Paul and Ian are very friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to assist my wife while I was not there.

Hi Wayne, you received an upgrade from the two rooms booked. Your rooms received were more spacious, with a view of the pool and garden. With respect to value, you paid R600 each for two double rooms with breakfast, I challenge that value anywhere. Kind Regards, Paul (owner)

Waarde vir geld, maar paar goedjies om te weet.

Baie netjies en sentraal geleë, maar neem kennis dat parkering 'n probleem is. Ontbyt word laat bedien, so as jy voor 8 uur die oggend êrens moet wees gaan jy ontbyt moet mis.

Value for money, but a few things to know.

Very neat and centrally located, but note that parking is a problem. Breakfast is served late, so if you have to be somewhere before 8 o'clock in the morning you will have to miss breakfast.

Dear Guest,
Breakfast is 7h30 - 8h30. I don't think it's late. We ask what time guests need to leave and will always make an earlier breakfast or leave something out if guests need to leave very early.
Parking is challenging if we have many large vehicles. We are in the beautiful secure suburb of Paulshof and not an industrial area. If guests park outside there is not problem at all, this is a secure, patrolled area.
We look forward to seeing you back at PepperTree.

I enjoyed my stay and was very impressed with the prompt, efficient service.

Paul was really fantastic and professional with all communication and necessary information about the venue, our stay and even updates on loadshedding! I have recommended the Pepper Tree and we have added them as a preferred venue for our corporate travel needs going forward! There is just 1 thing I would have liked to know up front and that was related to the shared bathroom for the 2 rooms booked for my colleague and I.

Everything you need, comfortable beds, peaceful garden, and good management.

Ian is a kind, efficient host. The facilities are more than adequate, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the staff are helpful and friendly and it is very good to have close proximity to Sandton, Bryanston and Lonehill without having to pay a small fortune. We loved the large, beautiful, peaceful gardens. Lots of birdsong, and virtually no traffic noise. I would recommend Pepper Tree to anyone.

Safe accommodation in a fairly tidy place with extremely tight parking.

Whatsapp communication good to indicate address etc. Parking extremely neat and tight. Room clean and tidy. Shower dirt with bugs lying in the windowsill. Owner comes into room after knocking while I am blow drying my hair "to see what is making the noise". As if no one has ever blow dried their hair there?? Also send a Whatsapp that we have to close the garage wrongly to us because we had to park outside the garage. Breakfast was extremely pathetic. I will definitely not recommend the place to any of my friends.

Ek sal definitief weer daar bly!

Dit was baie aangenaam by The Pepper Tree. Ek was baie bly om vroeër te kon inboek - die eienaar was baie behulpsaam en ek is al vroeg laat weet ek kon kom. Ek het gevra vir 'n stil kamer en dit is wat ek gekry het. Die ontbyt was baie aangenaam en die eetkamer atmosfeer uit die boonste rakke. Wens ek het tyd gehad om te swem want die water het baie lekker gelyk in die warm aande. Ek sou wel 'n lugreëling verkies het en nie net 'n waaier nie, maar dit was voldoende. Die kamers het ook net Netflix, maar die WiFi werk wonderlik! Dankie vir 'n wonderlike 3 dae ten midde van my eksamen stres.

I will definitely stay there again!

It was very enjoyable at The Pepper Tree. I was very happy to be able to arrive earlier - the owner was very helpful and I was told I could come early. I asked for a quiet room and that's what I got. The breakfast was very pleasant and the dining room atmosphere top notch. Wish I had time to swim because the water looked very nice in the hot evenings. I would have preferred an air conditioner and not just a fan, but it was adequate. The rooms only have Netflix, but the WiFi works great! Thank you for a wonderful 3 days during a stressful exam.

Dit was slegs 'n slaap plek wat niks ekstra aanbied om nie-slaap ure aan te vul nie, veral in die winter wanneer dit vroeg donker raak.

The Pepper Tree B&B het ons teleurgestel vir die onderstaande redes en ons sal nie weer van hul dienste gebruik maak nie. Vir ses agtereenvolgende oggende was ons dieselfde oninteressante ontbyt bedien en ons voel dat daar meer afwisseling nodig is soos ons by ander soortgelyke instansies ervaar. Kaas, rolletjies, warm melk, 'n gekookte eier, ens, is opsies wat die eienaar kan ondersoek om 'n mens se verblyf meer aangenaam te maak. Van die ander gaste het later die ontbyt onaangeraak gelaat. Daar is 'n tekort aan basiese geriewe soos: Plek om nat en klam handdoeke op te hang want daar is net een badkamer wat deur ander gaste ook gebruik word en geen plek in die kamers wat maar eng is vir twee persone. Daar was geen glase vir gaste se eie gebruik, selfs nie in die "kombuis" en drinkwater moet uit die badkamerkraan in koffiebekers getap word. Bottel water of 'n aparte kraan/wasbak is miskien 'n moontlikheid. Daar is geen vadoeke of lappe in die gemene gastekombuis-area sodat 'n mens niks kon droog maak of skoon vee. Die "kombuis' is nie deel van die slaap-area en is los van die hoofgebou. Dit is 'n bietjie te veel om van gaste te verwag on laat in die aand of in die koue glase, 'n botteloopmaker of iets anders daar te gaan haal. In daglig is daar nie 'n probleem maar veral laataand gedurende ons verblyf het die aspek gekrap. Hierdie gastehuis bied nie die mees basiese fasiliteit in die vorm van 'n televisie stel aan sy gaste en daar is nie 'n gemene spasie waar almal kan ontspan of na 'n televisie kyk nie. Daar is wel WiFi, maar dit is nie die punt nie. 'n Mens is dus gedurig in die beknopte kamer vasgekeer sonder die opsie van televisie en met slegs jou foon as afleiding. As besoekers in 'n vreemde plek is dit 'n probleem. Hierdie aspek het veroorsaak dat ons so vroeg moontlik uit was en so laat as moontlik terug gekom het om tyd by die B&B te beperk. Interaksie met ander gaste was meesal buite op die perseel, in die buitelug, wanneer hulle uitgekom het om te rook. Op 'n positiewe punt moet ons byvoeg dat die sekuriteit in en om die perseel van die hoogste gehalte is en ons het nooit onveilig gevoel nie. Hierdie plek behoort nie as 'n B&B bemark te word nie want die tweede B is onder op die rang van standaarde. Die behoort onder die kategorie "self-catering" want dit is regtig net 'n slaapplek wat niks meer as dit bied nie. Die kamer word een keer 'n week skoongemaak en vir die res is die gas verantwoordelik om die bed op te maak, ens. As gesoute reisigers het ons 'n goeie idee van wat standaarde behoort te wees en The Pepper Tree het 'n lang pad om te gaan gemeet teen ander soortgelyke plekke. Ons voel dat daar meer eerlikheid in die bemarking van die perseel moet wees: noem dat daar nie televisie is nie, dat die ontbyt basies en skraps is, dat daar nie 'n sitkamer vir almal is, dat jy jou eie kamer moet skoon maak, dat jy 'n badkamer met anders moet deel. Dan kan die reisiger voor die tyd besluit of dit aan sy/haar vereistes voldoen teen die prys wat aangebied word. As ons kon kanselleer vir 'n ander plek sou ons, maar as vreemdelinge in 'n vreemde plek en kansellasie voorwaardes.

Only a place to sleep with no extras to fill the non-sleeping hours, especially when it gets dark early in winter.

The Pepper Tree B&B was disappointing for the following reasons and we won't be making use of them again. They served the same boring breakfast 6 consecutive mornings, there should have been more variety such as we experienced at similar accommodations. Cheese, rolls, warm milk, boiled eg, etc. is options the owner should look into to make the accommodation better. Some of the other guests also didn't touch breakfast. Basic facilities are nowhere such as: A place for wet towels, only one bathroom also use by other guests and no place in the rooms which makes not nice for two people. No glasses, even in the "kitchen" you have to pour drinking water from bathroom faucet in to coffee mugs. Bottle of water or separate faucet/basin should maybe be considered. The are no dishcloths in the communal guest kithcen area so you can't dry anyting or clean anything. The "kitchen" is not part of the sleeping area it is separate. A bit much to expect guests to go out into the cold evening to fetch glasses or a corkscrew. No issues during the day but especially late at night this feature was an issue. This guest house doesn't provide the most basic facility such as a TV and no communal area where you can relax or watch television. They do have WiFi, but that's besides the point. So you find yourself trapped in the cramped room all the time without a TV option and only your phone as a distraction. This is an issue for visitors in an unfamiliar area. This caused us to leave as early as possible and return as late as possible to limit the time at the B&B. Interaction with other guests was mainly on the premises, outside, when they came outside to smoke. We have to highlight one big positive point - the security on the premises is top-notch and we never felt unsafe. They shouldn't market this place as a B&B because the second B is not up to standard. It belongs to the "self-catering" category because it really is just a place to sleep. They clean the room once a week and the guests have to make their own beds etc. the rest of the week. As seasoned travellers we have a fairly good idea of what the standard should be and The Pepper Tree has a long way to go compared to other similar establishments. The should market the place more honestly: mention the fact that there is no TV, that breakfast is basic and skimpy, and that there is no lounge, that you have to clean your own room and have to share the bathroom with other people. Then the traveller can decide beforehand if it meets their needs at the price. If we were able to cancel for a different place we would have, but we weren't familiar with the place and the cancellation policy.
