“The BEST Guest House in Jhb”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

The beautiful Northcliff Manor Guest House received me and my business associates with the utmost professionalism, excellent service at every turn and always helpful in a friendly manner. I will recommend this establishment to anyone who needs accommodation in Jhb, for whatever reason, and will not be staying anywhere else on my Business visits to Gauteng in future.

We just returned from spending 2 fantastic days here and would definitely return whenever we are in Johannesburg. Johnny and Ilse are very warm and generous hosts who immediately made us feel at home. They pay close attention to the little things that bring a smile and and make the stay more enjoyable. Their home is beautiful and welcoming, with a large sheltered garden and a pool. The breakfast was excellent and very generous.
I cannot recommend this highly enough; just go!

I wholeheartedly recommend this guesthouse. I'm a New Yorker who frequently travels to South Africa for work. For this reason, I've stayed in many hotels and guesthouses in JoBurg and Pretoria and this was, without a doubt, the best experience I've had. I stayed for 3 nights in August, 2013. Apart from the charming location and guest house itself, I was most impressed by the owners who are truly nice and affectionate to their guests - and went out of their way to accommodate me and other friends who have stayed there. They are great, and rare, people and I hope anyone travelling to JoBurg gets to experience North Cliff Manor.

Room Tip: The most beautiful room is the honeymoon suite..

Northcliff Manor is beautifully and tastefully furnished with antiques and the guest rooms are superbly appointed. Everything one could want is provided - hot water bottles, rusks for early morning tea, chocolates on the bed, etc. The breakfast was excellent and we shall definitely stay here again. We shall highly recommend this to all our friends.

We stayed in December 2012 for 2 nights, 4 adults and 2 under 2 yrs old at the time.
The guest house was beautiful, rooms so spacious.
Felt very welcome and secure there.
Would recommend it to anyone thinking of staying in a guest house.
The owners were lovely and could not have been more helpful and kind to our children.
Wonderful few day there, would turn if we come back to joburg.

Room Tip: All rooms we stayed in were lovely.

This was my first trip to South Africa and I was a little nervous to say the least! My client booked me into Northcliff Manor and I had no idea what to expect...

The place is amazing. So much character from the 1930's design to the artwork displayed around the rooms. Jonny and Ilse are the perfect hosts and the are well laid out and very comfortable.

I can't wait to return next year - maybe with my family in tow...
