I came to Claire's for the peaceful stay and great breakfast. Claire's did not disappoint. I was welcomed in and provided many suggestions of places to dine. I also had a room with the view of the pool. Just to wake up with the look of an oasis. Now let's go into the room, you have a large tub which...

I had an amazing 3 day stay. I am originally from Johannesburg and came back for a few days' stay. I was welcomed by Zodwa as I had arrived late from my flight from Amsterdam. She showed me to my clean and spacious room which had everything I needed, including snacks, mini bar, hairdryer and all the rest. Breakfast every...

What a wonderful review. A "home coming" is a special time, thank you for choosing Claires and for allowing us to be part of your experience. Now you have a 2nd home in SA.

Spent five nights at Claires, great breakfasts, friendly staff and the birds feeding in the mornings provide a wonderful distraction as you go through the breakfast menu. Well situated for the Sandton City business district, nothing was too much trouble. Highly recommended.

Very well situated, comfortable home from home guesthouse. Excellent hospitality, and very good breakfasts. Watching the bird feeding area in the lovely garden kept us entertained every morning. Couldn't fault anything! Thanks to the staff who were attentive and most helpful.

Claire's was one of the most memorable guesthouses we stayed in during our trip. We arrived much too early in the morning, but Zodwa and Claire were wonderful - they went to great trouble to make sure we had a solid itinerary with which to explore Johannesburg, and let us put our bags down before we left. The guesthouse itself...
