Overview

At Festina Lente (Latin for "haste slowly") we believe that the things that we like, that intrigue us and give us joy, are those things that are made over time with care and love.

Festina Lente, a luxurious guesthouse, is located in the northern suburb of Hurlingham in Sandton, Johannesburg, only 2 kilometres from the popular Sandton City Shopping Centre and Gautrain Station. The property is easily accessed from William Nicol and Sandton Drive.

Festina Lente currently offers six superior elegant units that are generous in size. Each unit is individually and luxuriously decorated in a its own themed style. An abundance of antiques inject a sense of refined warmth and soul into the units, creating a sanctuary of comfort and luxury. Each unit has its own unique character and provides a romantic and nostalgic escape into another world.

Guest Comments

The hospitality was phenomenal, the room was well kitted out and clean. All my needs were catered for and the facilities beautiful to boot. Would recommend a visit. Will be back.
- Cheryl Macdonald

Fantastic value for money. I will visit again.
- Ilana Binneman

Even though it is very close to big roads and not far from Sandton Centre it was really quiet at night. The hosts were really helpful and on time with everything they promised. Definately the tastiest, most appealing breakfast I have had at any B&B ever. Lovely accommodation, a whole house in one room! I can recommend them any time.
- Carel Bredell

We were graciously met by Henrico who turned out to be the perfect host. The room was exquisite (as were the others, one nicer than the next) and the breakfast served was fantastic. A must for everyone
- Carol Taylot

Excellent service
