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...

The most beautiful Manor House, full of genuine antiques, super one on one service from Johnny and Ilse, best breakfast. Nothing was to much trouble for them, so clean fresh and very comfortable. We will always stay there when we go up to Johannesburg and nowhere else.
Beautiful view as well!! Staying there takes the shock out of going to Johannesburg. They were prepared to drop us off for shopping and to restaurants. Very caring.

Room Tip: Honeymoon suite is the best. You have a lounge as well and the beautiful view over Johannesburg.

On the lookout for a weekend break in Johannesburg we found this amazing guesthouse located on the leafy slopes of Johannesburg's landmark Nothcliff. Build in the 1930's as a wedding gift for Helen Suzman South Africa's leading white anti-apartheid activist, Northcliff Manor really has this old time charm that is so rare to find in the City of Gold. The wood-paneled entrance hall, the breakfast room and the guest rooms are very tastefully decorated by Ilse, the owner/manager who was very knowledgeable in explaining the history of the Northcliff and the guesthouse. From Northcliff Manor we went to explore interesting places in the city such as the Saturday market in Braamfontein (Juta Street) and the (Sunday-) Market on Main in the newly developed Maboeng District. We also went on to visit the roof-top bars at the Radisson Blu in Sandton and the "54 on Bath" in Rosebank.
Breakfast was great and we enjoyed sitting on the terrace of this beautiful charming guesthouse to have a coffee and just chat.
This is an ideal place to stay in Johannesburg if you are looking for tranquility and hate the standard hotel environments.
