Stayed at Chelsea Villa for 4 nights and found the accommodation perfect for my needs. Although it's a little expensive for a guest house, it is central, 15min from city centre, with local restaurants and a Woolies 5 min walk away. The room was well appointed, the aircon was quiet and the hair dryer was not a crappy little piece... More
