This owner-run boutique hotel near Melrose Arch is packed with character.
Fun, eco-conscious and forward-thinking, this hotel is great central find in one of Johannesburg’s more peaceful neighbourhoods just minutes away from key attractions. It’s close to the Wanderers Stadium for lively cricket match atmosphere in historic grounds, and nearby upmarket Melrose Arch for shopping and dining. Unwind in the two acres of gardens where you can do laps in the larger pool or chill out by the smaller family-friendly pool. The hotel has a strong eco-conscious focus and is Fair Trade in Tourism-certified; leftovers are recycled into fertiliser for the garden and the hotel makes effort to reduce plastic waste. Guests can help with the hotel’s community effort by opting into a small donation for each night of their stay towards a local charity for children and young adults with learning disabilities, which are matched by the hotel.
Local, seasonal produce is used at The Bistro, the hotel’s all-day restaurant, and The Peech Bar is well stocked with independent wine brands and craft beer. Join in one of the food and wine evenings, where you can have a four-course dinner paired with local South African guest wines, and learn about each wine from a representative from the wine estate. The hotel prides itself on its rooms – each is kitted out with a Nespresso machine and locally sourced amenities, and are infused with character with modern 'Afri-chic' décor. The newer Luxury Rooms are sleek with stackable glass doors and hand-crafted furniture. The more spacious Peech Suites are the largest rooms and have hanging basket chairs, while the original homestead and main hotel building has two classic-style Heritage Rooms upstairs.
