I found the staff to be very friendly and the rooms were neat and the bed very comfy. We didn't book for dinner but it smelt delicious so i will definately be booking for dinner next time. Will most certainly be back.

A well-run guest-house with great and friendly service. Quiet location, secure and comfortable. Rooms are well appointed with everything you need, certainly as an overnight businessman. They pack a mean take-away breakfast for the early morning traveller.

We spent 2 nights here and have no hesitation in recommending Jemima's to others. Peaceful location and yet not far from good eating places, very comfortable room with ensuite and helpful friendly staff. Could not ask for more. Resident pet for those like us missing their own!

Not a bad place but room floor was dirty, curtains torn and old and the bar at the BnB was loud so battled to sleep with everyone drinking etc. the bar should 'close' early as people are staying there to sleep and rest and not party and drink. Plenty of bars in EL to go, just my thoughts.

Excellent friendly and accommodating service, the room was neat and warm, comfortable and spacies. Jemimas is home to me when I am away from home. The food is amazing and the staff are always accommodating. There will never be a no answer to a request and that makes me feel even more at home.

One of my top 5 B&Bs in East London. The place is just a kilometer from the beach. The rooms are super fresh. The place is very safe, except from monkeys , don't leave your windows open. Friendly staff , and lovely breakfast.

My family and I stayed here over the new year period and we were made very comfortable. The staff is so pleasant and accommodating, the breakfast was good and the pool was lovely especially on a hot day. The only thing I didn't like is the open bathroom, esp cause all the family rooms were taken and u had to... More

Elize and her team are very friendly and helpful. One feels at home. Rooms very comfy, modern and all with aircon. Breakfast very nice as well with a large selection. Dinner is also available on request. There is a well stocked honesty bar as well.
