|22 CARATS GUEST HOUSE
ACCOMMODATION IN ROBIN HILLS
Every now and then
one discovers a true gem...
A guest house in the quiet and upmarket suburb of Robin Hills, Johannesburg, is such a gem - where guests are regarded as precious.
After years of extensive travel and learning about the hospitality industry, the owners and hosts, Pieter van Zyl and Irma Meyer, custom-built a guest house that caters for all the needs of the discerning business or leisure traveller.
At 22 Carats one can expect traditional hospitality, attention to detail, and hosts who provide exceptional personal service.
The décor and colour scheme of 22 Carats are themed around gem stones and you will find a ruby, tanzanite, amethyst, amber, aquamarine and turquoise room, all reflecting the richness of the colours of these stones. The passion and enthusiasm with which this project was undertaken are evident in the outcome and the guest house is truly a gem.
22 Carats offers six en-suite bedrooms, all individually decorated with style and comfort in mind. All rooms are fully serviced and equipped with:
· an en-suite bathroom
· 24-hour ADSL Internet access
· satellite TV
· an individually controlled air conditioner
· an electric blanket
· a digital safe for valuables
· a hairdryer
· a work desk
A sumptuous breakfast, catering for the hearty as well as the health-conscious appetite, is served daily. Lunch and dinner can be provided on request.
Swimming pool and catering
The rooms all have easy access to the swimming pool and patio area. The guest house has two kitchens. Guests are welcome to use any of the two kitchens on site to prepare tea and coffee, a light meal or chill a bottle of wine. Both kitchens are equipped with a microwave oven, fridge and freezer, oven, stove, crockery and cutlery.
A business centre enables guests to send or receive faxes, send or retrieve e-mails, surf the Internet, or simply relax with a selection of daily newspapers.
