Found Claires on Trip Advisor and it lived up to it's reviews. Especially efficient booking via email, rooms, breakfast info, friendliness were all as per previous reviews -- great. Claires also arranged a day tour for us, with a private guide they often use, to see downtown, Apartheid museum and Soweto - all very interesting and a worthwhile day. We... More

we are at home, with a fabulous breakfast by the fire. we were greeted very well and everyone is really nice. Better than a hotel with more freedom and comfort. For sure we will come back and will recommend the place to our friends.

Such a delightful setting, with tasteful decor and perfect service. Breakfast was delicious. Enjoyed watching birdlife in their peaceful garden. Felt safe, secure and well cared for at Claire's. Will return!

Hi Duifodil. We take great joy in knowing that you appreciate the bird life at Claires. The feeders and food that is set out for the birds tends to attract quite a variety. Feeling safe & secure at Claires is an important aspect of a successful stay with us. Sandton...Johannesburg can be a bit daunting for travelers and it is... More

Stayed here for four nights while exploring Jo'burg and could not have had a better introduction to South African hospitality. It is a safe area and there are some eating places down the road and they will arrange transportation. We were 3 older women and it was great.

Our stay at Claires was just like staying at an old friend's home. Zodwa, Chantal, Claire, and the other staff were not only welcoming, but very accommodating. For instance, we had wanted to go to the nearby mall to buy some treats for friends and family back home. So we asked Chantal how to get there. Rather than simply telling... More

Our stay at Claires was exceptional, from arrival to departure. Zodwa, Creighton and Chantal were simply fantastic with their heart-warming welcome - always with a smile. The rooms are spacious and neat, facing the beautiful garden. They went out of their way to cater for my special dietary requirements, providing us with mouth-watering breakfasts looking out to the garden to... More

The pics dont do this offering justice. The gardens are immaculate and really beautiful. The rooms are spacious, clean, and well appointed. Showers and bathrooms spacious too, and with nice decor touches. Service is attentive. The management and staff are welcoming and very very helpful. The lounge and dining areas are really lovely. Warm, inviting, and cosy. The breakfast is... More

Zodwa, Chantal, Crieghton, Claire and the others provide consistent top quality hospitality with a smile. The rooms are comfortable and well-equipped. The guesthouse is tucked away in a quiet corner of Parkmore, while at the same time conveniently located near Sandton.

Wonderful stay in all ways - lovely large, well equipped rooms - will definitely be back. Claire is a wonderful hostess, supported by equally good helpers. We particularly enjoyed the view from the breakfast table onto an outside birdfeeder visited by an amazing variety of birds coming and going.
