The manager was extremely accommodating and friendly, putting me up at late notice. However there were some issues- no milk at the tea stand, no covers on some pillow cases, and very slow service at breakfast.

It was the first time I ever felt like I was still at home. Warm greetings , friendly staff and a very pleasant vibe in general. This was a REAL home away from home experience. Thanks to Esme and her husband for making us feel so welcome. The best 9 days away from home . Thanks Guys !

Although the set up of place is acceptable, the internal dynamics of staff relations has much to be desired. Inconsistent service from cleaners and animosity between staff, management and ownership results in a fragile living environment. I stayed there for 22 days, and could wait to leave. Thanks for thelma for attempting to make my stay comfortable, but your working... More

I challenge the Owner of this place ( apparently nameless and certainly over the 5 days we were staying, faceless ) to come and experience her Saffron house offering over a 24 hour period. I would be concerned if she was left feeling anything less than embarrassed and apologetic ! Firstly, let's be clear about one fact. Carin is the... More

the place is neat, secure and beautiful. That white inside is just welcoming. I can definately come back and would recommend it. Closer to the beach, restaurants and about 15 mins from V&A. We even regreted staying at some hotel before

Went to Saffron House Guesthouse on a three nights stay business trip, was a lovely setting in a lovely area. Centrally located and friendly staff. The breakfast served is made fresh for each guest and delicious. Rooms are kept nice and clean.

Rooms are equipped with all the necessary basics (tea, heating, etc) Service is nice and friendly. Some of the rooms have no wifi, some have very old black and white tv sets. Breakfast is too light and has not much choice. Some efforts on decoration would make the stay even more pleasant. Overall an excellent value for money experience!
