If this guesthouse was rated 3 Stars one would have realistic expectations. It's not a 5 Star guesthouse. Some rooms have TVs that work, others don't. Some have microwaves, others not. There's no free wifi. The water was lukewarm, but after pointing this out, it improved. The shower heads/ pressure needs attention. However, the beds and linen are great. The... More

It turned out to be fantastic with the staff very perceptive to our needs and very accommodating.The location is great and is within walking distance to a small mall that has good food options. They are very tight with security and lock the gates during the... More

This Guesthouse is marketed as 5 star accommodation. It is far from it. While the place is very nice, the service is poor, and not what one would expect from 5 star accommodation. I will not recommend this guesthouse to anyone.

On the positive side: - Room was very nicely decorated and big - Bed was very comfortable - Staff were friendly and helpful - Area is nice and the guesthouse is well located On... More

The room was spacious and the complex very well decorated. Maybe too much rules. The staff was helpful and friendly. Unfortunately the service was not up to standard with the doorbell not being answered while standing in the rain, the room not being prepared for 2 people, the bathroom linen completely worn out, a chipped coffee cup and coffee being...

I stayed at JeanJean for 6 weeks, and had a very happy experience. Food lovely, people lovely, rooms lovely. Anton was very helpful and drove us around to show the city, Shane was always around to sort things out for us, and everyone else equally as amazing! P.s. the corridors are excellent for playing cricket in.
