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.

The crowning glory of the park-like garden, which attracts many birds and butterflies, is the huge Pine Oak tree that shades the main house. Festina Lente offers a sensory experience and resonates an ambiance of old world charm with a touch of new-world glamour.

Festina Lente currently offers four superior elegant units that are generous in size. Each unit is individually and luxuriously decorated in a style that marries a classic French influence seamlessly with "African chic." 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.

Festina Lente Is situated only 30 minutes away from O.R. Tambo International airport. It is in close proximity to Sandton-Central/428-0-1-1'>Sandton Central; Sandton is a playground for shopping enthusiasts and offers many activities such as theatre and a variety of restaurants. Sandton City, Nelson Mandela Square, Village Walk, Hyde Park Centre, etc. are all within 3 kilometres of the guesthouse. The Sandton Gautrain station is also in close proximity and have a direct link to and from OR Tambo International Airport.

Guest Comments

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
- dean marais

Wow - Fantastic - Henrico went way beyond the required hospitality. I can only say good things - Fantastic shuttle service to Sandton ICC and the gourmet breakfasts!
