“lovely place”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

I had the pleasure of staying at this lovely b&b. The room was well decorated, with a big, comfortable bed. And i loved the bathroom. Breakfast was such a delight. I will definitely stay there again on my next visit to Jo'burg.

I had the privilege of having an extended stay at Claire’s of Sandton. I was impressed by all elements of the accommodation, the photos on the website do not do this gem of a guesthouse justice. The atmosphere is relaxing, comfortable, and secure. Their delicious made-to-order breakfast is either served in the dining room with views of the well-kept garden or on the patio next to the pool. Every room is clean, spacious, and well furnished. From airport transfers and car hires to restaurant and trip recommendations, Claire’s has got you covered. And, to top it all off, the staff are courteous and welcoming. Every interaction was met with professionalism and a genuine smile. I highly recommend Claire’s of Sandton to solo vacationers, families, business travelers, and to anyone who wants to have a lovely stay in the most convenient Johannesburg location. Many thanks to entire Claire's staff, especially Chantal and Zodwa, for taking exceptional care of me while in Johannesburg... I am already looking forward to my next stay with Claire’s!

I travel to Johannesburg regularly on business and I always stay in hotels, but after my stay at Claires of Sandton I don't think I will be going back to any hotels in JHB! The B&B has a great location and benefits from a close proximity to the Gautrain/ Sandton/ Fourways/ Randburg etc. The room was spacious, well decorated and fully equipped with everything I needed from a comfy bed to internet connection to a bottle of wine! And don't miss the breakfast, anything you want is possible. They even catered to my food allergies. All in all, great friendly staff and beautiful surroundings. It was a lovely relaxed stay - I highly recommend Claires for business and personal travel. I will be back!

Claires of Sandton was recommended to us by family who had stayed there before and we are very happy to pass on the recommendations. The rooms and ensuites were very clean and comfortable, the garden and pool are lovely and the breakfasts were excellent. The staff were very professional, warm, friendly and very helpful from the initial contact via email and phone and throughout our stay - a special thanks again to Chantal and Zodwa. We will definitely stay there again the next time we are in Johannesburg.

Everything about this B&B was perfect. The room was spacious, comfortable and extermely well-appointed, with a lovely bathroom. The common areas were also great; the pool was immaculate and the gardens were beautifully kept, and quiet. The satt were all excellent, and so welcoming. Nothing was too much trouble for Chantal who was unfailingly friendly and helpful. And the breakfast was really really good. I would highly recommend this as a place to stay in Sandton; so much better than the big hotels.

This is definitely the best B&B we've ever tried in Johannesburg, and as far as we'll find availability, that's where we'll stay in the future!

Everything was perfect, but a special point has to be given to the breakfast: attractive, tasty, fresh, cooked to perfection.

Professionalism in each and every detail: congratulation.

As i have lived in Sandton for 14 years it felt strange to stay in a guesthouse in my old ''home town'. But everybody at Claires made me feel so welcome that this feeling was soon over. What can I say about Claires? Excellent stylish rooms with a beautiful - and really big - bathroom. Wonderful relax area - inside and outside, with a super pool. And the breakfast is really great - everyday something new, escpecially o the fruit side. And it is very close to Sandton City, rather convinient.
All in all - the best stay in Joburg.
Special thanks again to Chantal and Zodwa.
I WILL BE BACK SOON.
