My husband and I spent 2 nights at Claire's at the beginning of out 8 week Africa/Mauritius trip. We just wanted a few days to recover from the long from Australia and to rest up prior to our month long tour. Our upstairs deluxe room was light and comfortable with a pleasant garden outlook from the balcony. The bed was great, the crockery supplied made eating in a lot easier and the bath helped soak away the aches and pains after the . The next morning we awoke to the sun streaming into the bedroom and a delicious breakfast served in a quaint little breakfast room which overlooked the birds feeding in the garden. Loved the French toast with fried banana and bacon, the omelette (the best I have tasted) a the fresh fruit and yogurt with dried cranberries (a new combination for me!), and the background music which really added to the experience. We were the only guests so it was quiet and peaceful. We then spent a few hours wandering around the neighbourhood and the local shops which were only 5 mins walk from Claires. Even though most of the houses had very high fences which were topped with barbed wire, we felt quite safe. There were a number of different restaurants available for dinner. Later in the day we enjoyed sitting out in the sun on our balcony with a cup of tea and our chocolate croissants (from breakfast!).overlooking the pool and surrounding garden. I do agree that the TV was not brilliant as it was small and located high up on the wall however this did not worry us as we had our and books. I must make special mention of Zodwa. She always greeted us warmly with a smile, cooked the very yummy breakfast and went out of her way to help us in any way she could, arranging taxis, ordering dinner for us etc..We really enjoyed chatting to her about her life in Zimbabwe and now in Jo'berg. Her lovely outgoing personality made our stay both memorable and special. We met Claire the following day who was also very friendly and warm. So it was the perfect place, perfect weather, great hospitality and lovely surroundings for the start of our wonderful holiday. Thank you Zodwa, Claire and Tammy.. Highly recommended!
