A compact establishment with good service and excellent beds. Reception is manned 24 hours and the breakfast is freshly cooked to your requirements. The rooms are of decent size and offer coffee/tea facilities. The staff are friendly and willing to assist wherever. There is off road parking but it is mostly in tandem and could be a problem when some... More

We felt really welcomed by each and everyone of the staff members; Ella, Thandi, Alfred, Rabson. No problem was too big for them to solve, with huge smiles, they rearranged our rooms from kingsized beds to single beds, at 10pm! Breakfasts each morning during our entire stay, was very enjoyable, mostly due to Ella's cooking skills! We loved the friendly... More

Home away from home. should be my 6th year staying here when I am traveling to Mzansi, (Local lingo for South Africa). Love the quiet back roads of Norwood where the guesthouse is situated, in old laid back Jewish neighbourhood. Relaxed atmosphere and very friendly staff. Walking distance to pleasant restaurants and shopping malls.

Located within the bustling, vibey suburb of Norwood, this little guest house has so much to recommend it. The rooms were so very spacious and comfortable, and as charming as the rest of the place. But perhaps the best part was the incredible friendliness of the staff. We were the only guests for the one night that we stayed, and... More

This is only my second poor review with Trip Advisor. We stay at B&B's to meet local people, and while the staff are more than kind and helpful, We were not getting the help that we needed. Also, if you don't have a car, you cannot really get around, with the exception of the shopping mall. Restaurants are not within... More
