Claires of Sandton
Ranked #2 of 79 Sandton B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 May 2013

Exceptionally friendly and efficient staff, gorgeous, well-appointed rooms and scrum-diddly-umptious breakfasts. My only regret was that the following two days of my Jhb trip were fully booked at Claires and I had to find alternative accommodation. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Claires regularly offer a room upgrade over weekends - just ask!

Your scrum-diddly-umptious breakfast gave us a good giggle. Thank you for your kind words and next time we would love you stay longer at Claires

We have recently returned from our trip to south Africa,our first 3 nights and last night were spent at this beautiful guest house. You could not find fault with anything here.Excellent value for money, Fabulous rooms, very helpful and attentive staff and all amenities you could wish for.We were made to feel so welcome, and on returning for our last nights stay it was like coming home! Our only regret it is that we couldn't stay for a few more nights to relax after our trip to the Kruger. The breakfasts are to die for. I would certainly recommend staying here if you are looking for somewhere in this location. Nothing is too much hassle for the owner and her staff. We really hope that we can come back here again sometime.

My wife and I stayed in Claires for two nights last month. The location was really convenient as it was close to Mandelar square and Rosebank. All the staffs there were very kind. Breakfast was exceptional. We will definitely stay there again if we go to Joburg later.

From the onset, your energy and enthusiasm was contagious and we were delighted to be part of your "home coming" trip. You have to promise to bring the kids next time you visit.

Every need was catered for with great care and attention. The rooms were of an extremely high standard and the house and grounds beautifully cared for. The choice of breakfast was extensive and perfectly cooked to order. We had such a lovely time here and would definitely come back. We could not fault our stay at Claires in any way.

Room Tip: The upstairs rooms are a little more spacious than the ground floor rooms.

I was assigned to find accommodations for a delegation of eight senior government officials so you can imagine the pressure. It proved to be an amazing choice. The staff and owners offered the best service from first contact to departure. The breakfast was Superb. Their partnership with a local transport service worked well for us; always on time and courteous. I intend to stay there every time I'm in Sandton. They know how to run a hospitality business!

Claires of Santon is one of the best guest houses I have stayed at in a 30 year career of travelling the world. It is set in a safe residential area of Santon but within easy reach of the shops and restaurants. Your hostess Claire is a delightful person and very knowledgeable on Africa.

Within walking distance is "Dylans" restaurant which provides a comprehensive menu at very reasonable prices.
