One of my top 5 B&Bs in East London. The place is just a kilometer from the beach. The rooms are super fresh. The place is very safe, except from monkeys , don't leave your windows open. Friendly staff , and lovely breakfast.

The staff is so pleasant and accommodating, the breakfast was good and the pool was lovely especially on a hot day. The only thing I didn't like is the open bathroom, esp cause all the family rooms were taken and u had to... More

I stayed at Jemimas for a night while attending a meeting in East London. The conference facility was perfectly suited to our needs, the rooms were large and well kept. The service from start to finish was personal and the entire experience was value for money.

On our arrival Gail made us feel very welcome and over the two days there we almost came to feel like family. The rooms are comfortable and clean with the staff very willing to assist or help wherever they can. Having been away from home for two weeks I had a pile of washing. On enquiring the whereabouts of a... More
