Set in the leafy, affluent suburb of Melrose, Johannesburg, The Peech Hotel exudes elegance and chic simplicity. Its central location provides easy access to the city’s museums and the glamorous shopping and business hub of Sandton. The Hotel offers its own attractions in a sparkling pool, tranquil landscaped gardens and rotating art and photography exhibit.

The Peech is a perfect overnight stop with its spacious rooms, king-size beds and sumptuous bathrooms (featuring heavenly rain-showers!). Complimentary Wi-Fi throughout allows you to upload holiday snaps and catch up on emails. Pre-dinner cocktails in the charming champagne bar are highly recommended, as is sampling the subtly sophisticated Bistro menu created by Head Chef Greg Jardim.

In addition to the Bistro, which is open exclusively for the Hotel’s residents and their guests, spend time enjoying the rotating art and photography exhibition, curled up with a book in the library, or lazing on a sun-drenched lounger at the pool. For more active pursuits, try the nearby gym or park.

Adjacent to the Hotel property is a Planet Fitness Gym, available to guests for a nominal charge. Known as a “mega club” this state-of-the-art facility offers a heated indoor pool, an abundance of fitness equipment and numerous classes. There are also plenty of personal trainers on hand to assist you.

Across the road from the Hotel is the recently upgraded James Gray Park. Named after early Johannesburg historians, James and Ethel Gray, the Park was originally established as a bird sanctuary. Thanks to the Sandspruit River flowing through its 36-hectares, a rich abundance of birdlife still thrives there. Neat paths meander between rolling lawns and banks of indigenous vegetation, providing a delightful escape from the bustle of the city.

The Bistro is an understated and sophisticated restaurant open exclusively to hotel residents and their guests. Light and airy architecture combines with a muted decor palette and playful touches to give the restaurant a very pleasant ambience. A bank of large, framed windows reveals peaceful views over the pool and landscaped gardens.

Enjoy breakfasts, light lunches and à la carte dinners paired with the Sommelier’s superb wine selection. Head chef, Greg Jardim, regularly changes the menu to take advantage of seasonal ingredients and the produce of his kitchen garden. Jardim’s guiding philosophy is flavour and simplicity.

Be sure to enjoy a pre- or post-dinner tipple in the Bistro’s champagne bar, with its inviting deep leather couches and walk-in wine cellar.

Quirky decor touches include a hanging pod chair and, naturally, these suites enjoy either beautiful views from their private patios or the advantages of a private garden.

Traveller Reviews

  • We arrived at the hotel late in the afternoon, (which was lovely) unpacked a bit and then went to dinner to a restaurant the hotel recommended. We ate at Moyo, which was delicious, and we all enjoyed the traditional face painting.

    Gary Meltzer, August 2014
  • The Peech Hotel was quite charming and very friendly as well.

    Cathy Ilani, July 2014
  • Our journey was started at a lovely boutique hotel in Joburg (Peech Hotel). Near to a gym, a shopping center and a park and a lovely romantic dinner with a good South African Wine at the hotel. Our 1 night lay over time at Joburg was turn into a good starting point of an unbelievable holiday. Afterwards flying to Botswana.

  • It is the most wonderful boutique hotel that we have ever stayed in...The rooms in the garden area were clean and comfortable and the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful...The manager helped us ship some luggage onwards to Cape Town and the food in the restaurant was delicious...

  • The Peech Hotel was very, very nice.

    Gudrun Wacker, February 2014
  • Going back to J'burg, the Peech Hotel was a great choice. Their onsite restaurant was very good and staff very personable. Our driver was professional and pleasant. The hotel also uses a tour operator who at first we were a little leery with as he took us to a shanty town but this was one of the best experiences once we became comfortable that the stop was legitimate.

    Joanne Apotheloz, February 2014
