My family and I stayed here over the new year period and we were made very comfortable. 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

Elize and her team are very friendly and helpful. One feels at home. Rooms very comfy, modern and all with aircon. Breakfast very nice as well with a large selection. Dinner is also available on request. There is a well stocked honesty bar as well.

The best thing about staying at Jemima's is the staff friendliness and service, Amazing! They make you feel very at home. Breakfasts are good and there is a variety including a take away if you don't have time. The rooms are very comfortable although not all have baths. If you want privacy then rooms 8 - 11 are not for... More

Staffs are very friendly, rooms are neat and clean, quiet and peaceful place. We were there for two nights and everyone enjoy the stay there. Not too far to the beach, aquarium and restaurants. Thanks for all the nice memories. If there is any complaint, it will only be the shower head is too high for a short lady 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

I stayed here on a work trip and found everything I needed: tasty home cooked food, a hot bath and a comfortable bed which was much appreciated after my long journey. The hostess was extremely friendly and made a real effort to welcome me and make me feel comfortable. The internet was fast and there was space to work in... More

Our initial reaction was not to check in as although the room was spacious and comfortable one had to keep the curtains closed as 2 other rooms looked into it. There is neither a view nor outlook.But we could not find a suitable replacement as town was very busy.It is fair value for money. The manageress - Elize - cannot... More
