About The Q on First Guesthouse

Rosebank, Johannesburg

Q on First Guesthouse, situated 1.1 km away from Rosebank CBD and Rosebank Mall just off Jan Smuts Avenue in Parktown North, combines distinctive accommodation in Johannesburg, Gauteng with gourmet cuisine and a hideaway pastoral setting in lush suburbs called the “ parks area” of Johannesburg. Did you know that Johannesburg has the biggest man made forest in Afrika.

As the guest list for accommodation is limited to just 26 people, 4 suites, 3 luxury rooms, 6 standard rooms personal service is assured. Best boutique Guesthouse for several years in South Africa.

The original house was constructed sometime around 1930 and was renovated and revamped in 2011, when the exquisite accommodation suites, rooms were constructed. In 2012 Q on First Guesthouse opened its doors. The renovations have retained the character of the era whilst ensuring that today’s guests luxuriate in modern comforts, with total privacy and personal service.

Aged Canadian Maple trees provide an enchanting entrance from First avenue. Fine collection of antiques and Persian carpets adorns the reception rooms, warmed by fires when winters chill sets in.

Mr Terry Martin attained the beautiful property in 1985 and the property was then a family home. Terry Martin loved the lanes of Canadian Maple trees in the street and the house entertained several visitors throughout the years until Terry Martin decided to convert it into an upmarket Guesthouse.
