Johannesburg Guest House Accommodation


Ailsa Craig

Grading: NAA-SA

Ailsa Craig Bed and Breakfast in the lovely garden suburb of Craighall Park was originally built in 1911 as stables for the area. The rural feel has been charmingly retained, yet Ailsa Craig is centrally situated for both business and leisure, with trendy Parkhurst, sophisticated Hyde Park and business orientated Rosebank right on the doorstep, with ever evolving Sandton not far off.

If you want to relax away from the hubbub of Joburg's vibrancy, there are fountains playing in Ailsa Craig's colourful country garden, a bubbling swimming pool, a large shaded terrace and, in winter, flickering fire places in both the sitting and dining rooms.

Cocooned in this enchanting space are five en-suite bedrooms, one self-catering suite and secure off street covered parking. These beautifully decorated rooms are now being offered on a monthly basis for rentals from R6 750 per month - an ideal option for corporate rentals, people relocating or simply as a home away from home. Now available for a long term rental is a charming fully furnished and serviced two bedroomed cottage with kitchenette and enclosed garden at R12 000 per month.

The 5 spacious en-suite bedrooms, each with its own individual stamp, are decorated in antique Provencal style, each one with access to comfortable verandas leading onto the verdant garden. Each room is stylishly furnished with sofas or arm chairs, a writing desk, a bar fridge, a tea and coffee tray.

The monthly package includes use of hotel DSTV, swimming pool, enormous covered patio, spacious living/dining room as well as a fully equipped kitchen and laundry service for the suite. Personal laundry and breakfast are not included and are only provided on request.


Meetings or conferences for medium-sized groups of up to 16 can be arranged and catered for. The venue is also ideal for hosting press conferences, private dinners, cocktail parties or other exclusive functions.


Just across the road, in Grafton Avenue, are some of Johannesburg's best eating spots:
Giles - a buzzing pub and comfort food bistro
Namak - an authentic Indian restaurant
The Market Place - a popular deli where mouth watering take-away meals, cakes and snacks are the major attraction
And, just a couple of blocks away, the vibrant Parkhurst strip, boasting an exciting diversity of restaurants.
