Since 2010 I have stayed at Claires each time I have come to Johannesburg on business - so every month. Comfortable rooms and a very accommodating team - I always enjoy staying here. Breakfasts are delicious. The team goes the extra mile - even delivering my laptop power cable to me when i needed it for a presentation!

What a choice we have made! Based on favourable guest reviews we picked up Claires and hit the jackpot. Claires offers you much more than good bed and breakfast. The house is nice and well located, the garden is beutifully taken care of. Claires staff treat you with a warm welcome, a friendly good morning every day, useful tips for...

Professional, respectful, safe, and welcoming are a few words that come to mind when I think about my seven (7) day stay at Claires of Sandton.

We enjoyed our stay a lot. The rooms are very spacy and extraordinary clean. The breakfast is excellent and the staff very friendly. The location is in a good neighbourhood, however you will need a taxi to go anywhere, because there is nothing in walking distance. The staff assists you in providing services like taxis etc.

I have now stayed here a couple times. The staff is fantastic and go above and beyond to make your trip enjoyable. Don't hesitate to ask for suggestions for things to do around JNB or really any of SA. They are a wealth of knowledge and I ended up having a great time in Lesotho taking their advice. The house...

Stayed here on another business trip, not our first stay here, which says it all. The "office" under the trees, at the pool, in the garden was an absolute pleasure! Zodwa and Chantelle made us feel so welcome and nothing was too much trouble for them. Situated in a quiet area, lovely spacious rooms and fabulous breakfasts in the morning,...

We love having you stay with us and appreciate your kind words. Your "office under the trees" is the perfect way to start the day, especially on a beautiful spring morning. We consider you part of the family and look forward to your return.

We only stayed there for 1 night but had a great time there. Excellent breakfast, great rooms, very comfortable! And the staff is extremely friendly! The only "negative" thing is that the number of restaurants near the accommmodation is very limited! Anyway, if I would travel to Jo'burg once again I would choose this guesthouse again!

We so appreciate your review and that you noticed the energy and attention of the staff means so much. As we head for Summer, the swimming pool is a real treat and the evenings on the veranda are glorious. When I showed Zodwa your review, she smiled and said "we have great guests!".
