36 on Bonza
Ranked #15 of 143 East London B&B and Inns
Reviewed April 4, 2012

We stayed here on a three night stop over for the National Swimming Gala in East London with our 10 year old son. East London was relatively new territory for us and there weren't too many reviews available for 36 on Bonza.

Overall, we were very pleased with the standard of accommodation. We had been given the honeymoon suite which was spacious and had enough space for our son's extra bed. The room was well furnished with contemporary furniture, had ample plugs and a good size desk. The beds were extremely comfortable. The room was open plan, with sleeping and desk area flowing into a small kitchen area and bathroom area. The slipper bath in the room looked very stylish - and very honeymoonish. However, the only person who used it was our 10 year old, as we much preferred to use the large and well pressurised shower. The only drawback to the room was the lack of door to the toilet area - we are not a prudish family but sometimes a bit of privacy is required and moreover appreciated by others......

Breakfast was excellent with a lovely range of cold and hot dishes which were freshly prepared for us. There is a Swiss coffee machine which blasts out very strong and apparently great cappucinos. (I'm not a coffee drinker, but my husband is). The breakfast sausages were particularly excellent, as was the choice of breads for toast. Everything from the super healthy to the absolutely not. There was something for everyone.

Kim, the manageress was extremely welcoming, friendly, efficient and flexible. She organised early breakfasts for us as we had to be at the swimming pool by 7.15 am and these were very much appreciated. She waited for us on our late arrival, helped us with our wet swimming laundry, provided us with extra swimming towels and gave us great recommedations for dining. Nothing was too much trouble.

The architecture of the place is interesting - look out for the huge Koi carp which can be viewed through the glass floored landing.......

The only thing to be aware of is that there is not a lift to the upper room, so you will need to carry your cases upstairs. But after all that swim training, what's a little case carrying?!

We were very happy with our choice of 36 on Bonza, and would definitely stay there again.

If you are going through East London and you need to jump onto the N2 to connect to your next destination, this is the best street for you to book into. The finishings are really quite exquisite and the bath in the room is not my cup of tea, I do like a door between me and my bathroom.

The manager is extremely friendly and there is constant access to coffee, muffins and fruit in the main lounge are.

Room Tip: I would avoid the twin rooms, and go for the rooms upstairs.
