Safe beautiful area near Tambo Intl AirportPosted Oct 3, 2014
Pros: The staff, the ambiance, the food, and the location. It is very safe and is security gated.
Cons: The only recommendation would be that it would be nice to have Internet access in the rooms. Currently it is only available in the living room/lobby.
Location: Very nice neighborhood with beautiful homes - close to the Estuary, shopping, and Tambo Intl Airport. Also not far to go into Johannesburg.
I have stayed here every year for 4 years. It is a wonderful location and the staff is extremely accommodating and friendly. Every year they have made improvements and it is becoming a very upscale boutique B&B. I don't ever look for anywhere else when I am in the Johannesburg area. Francois is an excellent manager. It is so comfortable that it is very much like being at home.

Couldn't have asked for a lovelier stay. Staff, accommodations, facilities, upkeep, meals all first class. If anything, everything everything surpassed my expectations...

Excellent hotel close to airportPosted May 26, 2014
Pros: Proximity to the airport, close enough to be nearby and far enough away to be quiet.
Cons: A mattress protector/topper would provide additional comfort
Quiet hotel only 15 minutes drive from airport. Reliable pick up and drop off service from/to airport for a minimal cost. As a single traveller felt very safe. Staff really went out of their way to make me feel at home. Excellent food.

Must I leave?Posted May 20, 2014 on Hotels.com
I stayed at Outlook Lodge for two nights on arrival at JNB after the grueling flights from the West coast of USA. This place was heaven! My room was clean and comfortable, with a lavatory easily as big as the rest of the suite, and that was quite generous. Francoise and Rinnelle were great hosts, and I felt pampered the whole time. The lodge is located in a gated community, and in spite of the security measures, I didn't feel imprisoned. The cozy lounge and gas fireplace encourage friendly chats with other travelers. I recommend the dinner service--both dinner meals were excellent, and the value for the cost is exceptional in my opinion. When in Joburg, I won't stay anywhere else.

Always a PleasurePosted May 20, 2014 on Hotels.com
I have lost count of how many times I have stayed at Outlook over the past years, but I have always had a great experience each time. The airport pickups are reliable and well organised, the hospitality first rate, and there is always an interesting conversation to be had with Francois, the Manager. It really is a home away from home.. The hotel is well located, close to the airport while still in an attractive, leafy and secure suburb. The food is also very good, especially Francois'desserts!

2nd stay, we loved it. Perfect.Posted Mar 21, 2014 on Hotels.com
We loved it. Not only the location, the interior, safety and the cleanliness, the real difference is the Manager/Cook/most helpful person ever, Francoise. I have never before felt so welcome and well taken care of. My wife and I can definitely recommend this place and we will also return. Recommended!
