I must apologise to Zodwa and Chantal for not delivering this review earlier but have been so busy at work since returning to London on August 7th.
This is one of the nicest places that I have ever stayed at. If you, like me, work in London you will find the prices charged here for superb rooms simply unbelievable. To think you would pay £150 pounds for a Travelodge room and I paid £53 a night for 4 nights
My room was lovely and the bathroom is enormous! Everything is so clean and fresh. I had some very good sleep here!
Don,t forget to use the lounge which I did. It,s really comfortable and there is an honesty trolley with some really nice drinks. A good selection of books too.
Unfortunately , due to the fact that I have heart problems I could not eat breakfast but you can see from other reviews it is very highly rated.
One factor for potential clients to consider is that Claire,s is not walking distance to Sandton. I know that a number of contributors to this site have said you need a car to stay here. I can understand that point but as somebody who does not drive or have a car in England I have to say I coped fine here. It cost me in British pounds £15 a day return to Sandton Gautrain station. It may seem like a lot of money but I thought it was very reasonable. Added on to the room price it made it £70 a night. I was very happy with that!
The Gautrain is brilliant and I used it everyday to visit Johannesburg, Pretoria and Rosebank. Must admit without this train I don,t know how I would have explored butt that,s no reflection on Claire,s. I would still have been stuck if I had stayed at the ridiculously expensive hotels in the middle of Sandton.
So well done to the Gautrain. Those of you who commute and work in London......let,s just say we could only dream of such a lovely train!!!
Finally, it,s the people who make anywhere. I am currently single and have stayed at places where that status makes you feel unwanted. Definitely not here! I was treated brilliantly.
If finances permitted I would love to visit Johannesburg again and I would book Claire,s without hesitation.
