My family of 5 rented the cottage and 2 garden facing studios, #3&4 and we all had a great stay. Comfort in every aspect. Would definitely return. Shopping and eating is within a short walk or drive. Everything needed is provided. Cleanliness is a priority.

Best weekend ever.

Everything about the place. Clean rooms. Fresh linen. Great room. I loved the bathroom and extra blankets were a nice gesture.

Thank you so much. We had a wonderful stay. Definitely coming back🤗 I will definitely put my review. Hospitality was great and really enjoyed our time there 😊 review

My go-to hotel in Joburg. It’s located in a very calm and convenient neighbourhood and the hotel has a really nice, well maintained garden. Rooms are clean and kitchen is very well equipped (everything - cutleries, pots and pans, all of very decent quality). They were very kind to have made arrangements for my super early check in. Also, before my arrival in SA, they let me know of the recent unrest in the country by mail, which was also much appreciated. Will be back soon !

Being allowed to overlap check out time as our flight was booked for later, the bed linen very clean, comfortable and enough for the winter season, Clean shower.
Thank you Haystack. Keep up the excellent work.

Everything was on point. The check in process was easy, the staff is friendly and welcoming. It is super clean and quiet. The place delivered on its expectations will definitely go back for another stay............a review



We love to have our own space and the little cottage we booked was absolutely spot on. We could do our washing, chill in the lounge, cook a meal and then retire to our bedroom.... just perfect. The setting and garden is beautiful and every little detail was covered. Very clean, comfortable and the host, Abiola, made us feel welcome and at home. All staff were attentive and professional. We will definitely book review



I enjoyed their facilities and how comfortable I felt on their premises.
I’m not sure if there was anything that I didn’t review

'The owner of the Haystack is very friendly and helpful, we felt very at home and was greeted with open arms, the room we had was just amazing and the swimming pool and the whole garden was just the best view to wake up to each morning. We thank you for giving us the room with the view and for your hospitality and kindness. Will definitely be back very soon.' review
