We stayed with Edith and Leon for 4 nights and will definitely return soon. They have a lovely home and nothing is too much for them. Your every need is taken care of. The breakfasts are scrumptious thanks to Connie. A really wonderful stay.

The couple running the guest house and their staff are extremely helpful and friendly. It's in a nice quiet part of town, and the breakfasts are magnificent. (You may have difficulty finding a taxi driver who knows where Clair Avenue is, but tell them it's near the Life Entabeni Hospital, and direct them from there, and you can't go wrong.)

What a wonderful experience! This was really one of the most pleasant stays I had in a long time. The owners were like family and the staff did not stand back wrt any request - they actually went out of their way. The food was made to perfection and I really felt that I could stay one an extra day... More

We had an overnight stay in the cottage. The accommodation was clean, comfortable, had everything we needed. Breakfast was excellent. I needed to make some international phone calls to sort a medical problem and Edith was extremely helpful to assist this. Wholeheartedly recommend this B &B
