The Peech Hotel South Africa

Located in Melrose, a short stroll from the hustle and bustle of the city, The Peech Hotel in Johannesburg, South Africa is a fabulous boutique property with bedrooms spread across lush gardens. Owners James and Vicky live on-site with their children, so the property feels very friendly and welcoming. 

Rooms come in five categories: luxury Rooms, Classic Rooms, Heritage Rooms, Peech Suites and the Peech Villa. Décor varies between rooms, but expect crisp, white bed linen, colourful chairs, cushions and wallpaper, and modern bathrooms with tub. The Garden rooms all come with small terraces – rooms upstairs get the sunshine, and those on the ground floor have more privacy. 

The Peech Hotel features two restaurants. The bistro is a cosy, light-filled room overlooking the garden. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all served here, or can be taken in your room at no extra charge. There's a small bar for cocktails and pre-dinner drinks.  The second, Basalt, is open to the public for dinners Tuesday to Saturday. 

Two outdoor swimming pools offer the perfect respite on a hot day. Hit the poolside sun loungers with a sunshade to save yourself from the South African sunshine.
