The owner and staff could not do enough to ensure my comfort. All my extra requirements were treated as "standard" and any little comment grabbed as useful input and actioned immediately (a slow working bathroom light). The staff did the owner proud. If B&B is your preference, this is excellent value for money and the best escape from hotel boredom. There was none of the often forced interlocutory with owners or management typical of the B&B setting, and the owner's art orientation, evident around the premises, is refreshingly different and an added character. The location is within easy reach of eating places and well positioned for a quick trip in any direction, including into the city. Cleanliness was impeccable. A pleasant surprise to find high speed and gratis internet in what is a home-like setting. Marriott, Hyatt, intercontinental take note. When I am not quartered in a hotel for access to meetings, this will be my choice for future stays in Jhb.
