Received a free upgrade to the honeymoon suite, which was a huge and beautiful decorated suite. Bed was extremely comfortable, and there was a lovely bathroom and lounge area. Both the night staff and owners in the morning were extremely welcoming, and breakfast had a lovely selection of local fruit, continental and cooked options. The cooked breakfast was delicious. We...

One couldn't have had a better night sleep or more beautiful accommodations. I also had time to enjoy the spa. I stayed in the Gold room, and it was just very sunny, and quiet and served my needs perfectly as a solo traveler.

Although we didn't stay long, our night at the Northcliff Manor Guest House was a relaxing, beautiful and romantic one. The breakfast was to die for, and the service was exceptional. A stunning room with a stunning view, and exquisite furnishings.

I feel I struck gold when I first found the manor! Lovely house with quirky, stylish interior packed with art and antiques. Spotlessly clean comfy rooms. Charming, accommodating staff and hosts. A unique and special find! I have stayed here three times and will be back for more.

I stayed there for one night after a trip to the Victoria Falls a while back. The Manor organized an airport transfer from the airport which was really expensive (800R) because it was quite far from the airport. I arrived from a late flight and therefore the lady offered me some complimentary toast. The exterior and interior was absolutely beautiful.... More

We had a wonderful stay at Northcliff Manor Guest house and will definitely go back there again in the future! On arrival we were met by extremely friendly and helpful staff who offered us a drink whilst our luggage was taken to our room. We sat and enjoyed this on the verandah, we then went to our room which was... More

The service was excellent and friendly service, the rooms were spotless, and the location and views were stunning! The breakfast buffet was also outstanding. The only issue that I experienced was poor mobile reception, but this is due to the hill on which the guest house is located.

Lovely staff! The house had so much character and charm was and beautifully decorated with interesting and quirky antiques. The perfect antidote to a sterile hotel. The location could be a bit more central, only 10 minutes from Sandton w/o traffic, but during rush hour, it is longer. Would definitely recommend. Great value for the price.

We stayed 2 nights at the manor Guest House. It is close to everything you wish: downtown Johannesburg, aeroport, Cradle of Humankind, Lion Park...The house is a real mansion set in a lush garden: you see the weavers doing their nest from your window. Inside, it is going back to the beginning of the past century for wonderful furniture, and... More
