“This was the first airbnb i have ever booked and will definitely do so over and over again. I have read all the reviews available on here and after my visit can verify that it is all true. Firstly Gordon is an amazing host, the word "Super" clearly applies here as he is one of the friendliest , most down to earth people i have come across in the tourism (accomodation) industry . He called me earlier than check in time to let me know i can come earlier, was there to welcome me, came in to check up if everything was okay throughout the stay and assisted when we had a little accident . The guesthouse itself is really stunning, from the road view you would never say that it is the same venue. It looks and feels like a 5 star venue which has everything you could need . It was really clean and tidy and you can see that is well taken care off. I wasn't too fond of the Westdene area when booking and originally wanted something in Sandton/Randburg etc but glad that i did book Thornton Gap Guesthouse. If you are visiting Joburg or just need a place to spend a few days away with mates, colleagues, family or a loved one then this is definitely the place you need to book at. Thank you Gordon and looking forward to booking this place again many times in future.”

A large top-floor penthouse situated in the heart of the Maboneng Precinct - a bustling, trendy, and must-see Johannesburg neighbourhood. It is perfect for couples. It is central and vibey - there's plenty of great restaurants, galleries and bars a very short walk away!
“What outstanding views from a lovely, enormous loft space in an Arts building. Very comfortable and safe in a district I found one needed to be very careful. Every amenity a traveller would want was provided. I would have liked if there was a small safe for valuables but that is my only suggestion. If staying, I strongly suggest Uber-ing everywhere as Uber is cheap and safe. I love public transport and made the mistake of taking the Gautrain to Park Station. I didn't realise Park Station area is unsafe. Phone thieves are everywhere. The restaurants within one block of this loft are excellent and cheap. I hired a local for a walking tour of the Arts district. So enjoyable! Take a minute to read the owners booklet of suggestions. Spot on and very helpful. Happy travels!”
