      Our hosts, Gladys and David, were the most accommodating, thoughtful poeple one could hope for. They went beyond the call of duty, picking us up in the evening after dinners out, making last minute arrangements for a Soweto toru when the one we booked failed to materialize. Breakfasts were high quality, cooked to order and varied for each of the four days we staryed. We would return in a heartbeat.

      In particularly hot weather, we missed air conditioning, but were offered a fan which was quite adequate.

      The heated bed was just amazing! My bathroom in Ebony and Ivory room was always super clean. I felt relaxed the whole time. Its certainly home away from home. I will stay at Arum whenever am in the city. Will sspread the news!!! Breakfast was always fresh and timely.

      There was nothing not to like!! The dogs scared me a bit when I just came in....they turned out to be very harmless.

      The owners are amazing human beings that really care for their guest. The Guest house is beautiful with a feeling of home. They spare no detail, in the beautiful rooms with large bathrooms you have all the amenities you will ever need, including a refrigerator stocked daily with water, Juice and sodas. You can also make tea or coffee in your room with real milk and delicious cookies. Breakfast is a delicious feast. The other owners, the doggies are extremely cute and well behaved. You will not resist petting them.

      Nothing 5 stars, I can't wait to come back and stay.

      We were picked up at the airport by Arum host and brought to the guest house. The premium room had outstanding facilities, including a heated bed, especially beneficial for the cool evenings of late winter, early spring. Hosts assisted with some of our tour arrangements. All in all an outstanding experience at Arum Guest House. Breakfasts were fantastic.

      A very plush room which was very reasonably priced. The atmosphere is one of being at home and very very relaxing. Quiet neighbourhood but very close to the bars and restaurants of Melville. The owners are incredibly friendly and go out of their way to help you if you need assistance. A place I will be recommending to all of my friends if they evert come to johannesburg.
