Steeped in history, Northcliff was the wedding gift to Helen Suzman, a consistently anti-apartheid voice and the only woman in Parliament for many a decade. Now a B&B it sits above Joburg looking over the valley below. Ilsa, the owner and hostess, raised her family in the home and she keeps it elegant and extremely well-run by a knowledgeable and...

We booked the whole guesthouse (5 rooms) for a weekend to celebrate a special birthday as a family. From the beginning nothing was too much trouble. We requested and extra lunch with specific wine requirement - it was no problem at all. It was spotlessly clean, very friendly and attentive staff, and the decor was magnificent. The wifi that works... More

What a dream of a B&B! Friendly couple (and their dogs!) welcome you into their home. And a lovely home it is. The rooms, the garden, the house itself. Superb. If you are looking for a private spot instead of a big hotel, this is where you want to stay.

Once again we had to go to Johannesburg for business and made reservations for 4 days. It was spotlessly clean, friendly staff, and the decor was as always magnificent. An added positive is the wifi that works well. Wonderful English breakfast on order, fresh fruit! I cannot recommend the guest house to highly it was wonderful. Nothing is too much... More

Very welcoming guest house. They have made every effort to welcome guests. The whole place is spotlessly clean, really nice public rooms and beautiful gardens. Landlady and staff very helpful and pleasant. Wifi works perfectly throughout but if you are using i-pad - you might need to sign in near the router in the office. Really good cooked to order...

The Northcliff Manor Guest house offers you a home away from home. It is clean and neat with very friendly and helpful staff. Ilse is a wonderful and delightful host who takes the time to welcome her guests and to get to know them. I would recommend the Northcliff Manor Guesthouse to anyone who wants the home away from home... More

We had such a wonderful time at the guesthouse, from a wonderful historic home, lovely romantic honeymoon suite, eating breakfast omelettes to die for, sitting in the jacuzzi relaxing, enjoying some local vibe at the nearby Restaurant, we really felt like a queen and king at your Home. My husband really enjoyed his birthday celebrations and we enjoyed our quick... More
