Stayed for 2 nights while in JHB on holiday - rented 3 seperate rooms for the family. Eileen made as feel very welcome - all needs attended to and expectations exceeded! Rooms were clean, spacious and quiet. Great breakfast and well facilitated to cope with load shedding! Will stay again when in SA.

I come up often for business reasons and I have stayed here with Eileen and her friendly staff numerous times. They have always made me comfortable and welcome, but most of all I felt very safe every time I visited and that is important to me. Eileen has very pleasant, caring ways which makes you want to come back again... More

We stayed 3 nights at 49 on Norman during our transit stay in JNB. We found the accomodation impeccably clean, spacious and tidy. Excellent service from Eileen (owner) and a lovely swimming pool and garden setting. Nothing was a problem - Eileen even prepared a travel hamper of food for our travels. This is a great place to stay. Highly... More
