About Anchor Guest Lodge
Anchor Guest Lodge is well known as a place of peace and comfort and prides itself in providing personalized services and clean en-suite rooms at competitive prices. Allow our friendly and knowledgeable hosts to be helpful in acquainting you to our home town.
Anchor Guest Lodge is just 20 km from OR Tambo Airport and is close to major highways with easy links to the Johannesburg CBD, Sandton City and Pretoria. Should it be required, we are able to arrange transport to any destination within South Africa.
The original building was built in 1908 and the old house, made from original hand-dressed sandstone, boasts high pressed steel ceilings and wooden floors, and retains a distinctive old-world charm.
Yeoville, in which we are located, is a suburb of Johannesburg in the province of Gauteng, South Africa. Yeoville was proclaimed as a suburb in 1890 by Thomas Yeo Sherwell, who came from Yeovil in the United Kingdom. The area was advertised as a 'sanitarium for the rich' in which the air was purer because it was up on a ridge overlooking the dirty, smoke-filled mining town that had sprung from nothing out of the Transvaal bushveld. Today, apart from the rich, it has attracted many of the waves of migrants through all races, social classes and skills coming to South Africa from abroad, seeking a new life.
All of our guest rooms have en-suite bathrooms and are fitted with flat screen TVs, electric blankets and tea and coffee-making facilities. Enjoy either a continental or full breakfast, which is prepared each morning.
We have CCTV security equipment and our kitchen and laundry on demand services are fully functional. Ample, secure parking is available. We also have newly built bar and banquet hall for birthdays and meetings.
We are able to arrange airport transfers to and from the Lodge as well as secure bookings for private tours and other specialized services anywhere in South Africa.
We will do all we can to make you feel at home in South Africa and wish all of our visiting guests a peaceful, relaxing and enjoyable stay.
Smoking is not allowed inside the rooms. There are designated areas outside where people can smoke. Guests are not allowed to bring their own linen. Pets are not permitted.
