“A wonderful guest house that willl not disappoint”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2013

Whilst the four of us from Australia were due to stay two nights, in the end we only stayed one night. How we wished we could have stayed longer. it is one of he best guest houses that we have ever stayed in. The attention to detail and the hospitality of the staff is what makes this guest house outstanding. If we ever come back to J'burg we would only consider staying at Claires

I stayed at Claire's with my sisters their children, my children, my father and a few other relatives a few weeks ago. The accommodation is first class and her breakfasts are terrific. We were there for my bother's wedding and had a few night's out with family. Claire was good enough to arrange baby sitting which was a real treat.

Claire's is a lovely spot that I would highly recommend to anyone.

My extended family and I took over Claire's for 4 nights as had flown over for our brothers wedding and from early engagement on email upto the moment we checked out, Chantal, Zodwa and the team went out of their way to ensure our every need (and boy were we needy!) was catered for. Our children had great fun by the pools all day, the breakfasts were OUSTANDING and after long days of socialising, we all slept in fabulously comfortable beds and rooms. It was a perfect time and we will definitely return - if Chantal can bear it!
PS - blackout curtains in the bedrooms are also such a plus.

I arrived at Claire's after a long flight from Canada and was met by the most friendly and hospitable team ever. After lots of courteous and helpful correspondence in booking the accommodation for 5 rooms my expectations were high but the overall experience at Claire's far exceeded those expectations.
The team of Chantal and Zodwa was amazing. The service attentive, the food outstanding and the accommodation more than I could have wanted.
I traveled with 5 colleagues all from Canada and we all had the same experience and all will certainly stay at Claire's as soon as we get the opportunity to go back to South Africa.
The guest house is warm and friendly, the staff helpful at all levels and it was truly a home from home but better. The property is beautiful and listening the birds and watching them while eating a sumptuous breakfast was a great way to start the day - of course after a swim in the immaculately clean pool.
Thanks Chantal and Zodwa for making this an unforgettable experience.

Room Tip: The rooms are all good but the corner room on the upper level is a little larger and beautiful

We loved meeting all of you and from the initial enquiry to the tearful farewell, Ron you were fantastic. Thank you for your enthusiasm and encouragement, we miss all of you and, that you view Claires as a "home away from home", means so much to us.
Zodwa and I often chat about you and the girls and we hope to see you all soon.

I stayed at Claires for about 2 weeks with a group of fellow travellers. The place was spotless clean, anything i needed they had, the gardens are dreamy, the food is to die for and the staff is the most friendly, welcoming, sweet and polite staff I have ever encounter. I felt like I was visiting family. Thanks for your delicious breakfasts Zodwa, my mornings are certainly not the same without you! I will be back !!!
ps: heated tile floors made it for a beautiful morning shower!

What an encouraging review, thank you! We loved the lively atmosphere that you and the group created, especially at the braai! We would love to see you again, perhaps a summer visit so you can enjoy a swim in the pool.

I stayed at Claires on Sandton for a couple nights after a long flight and loved it! The team is friendly and they go an extra mile to make your stay unforgettable. I stayed in one of the upstairs rooms and was very comfortable. I would highly recommend it..

After arriving on an (very!) early flight from Cape Town, we were warmly welcomed at this delightful guesthouse. The hosts were inviting and offered to hold onto our luggage for us until our rooms were ready for inhabiting.
The garden with surrounding birdlife and gorgeous blue swimming pool were a welcomed site and made our stay that much more delightful.
The rooms were adequately furnished with two single beds side-by-side, although Queen sized beds are available upon request. The bathroom housed a spacious bath and separate shower with a large vanity mirror and basin.
Breakfasts in the morning were hearty and neatly laid out at a cosy breakfast table with a long menu of all your favourite breakfast treats.
The Johannesburg weather (warm and humid) attracted it's fair share of mosquitos, and the Claires' team went the extra mile to prevent any discomfort by supplying cans of mosquito repellent that made our sleep more peaceful.
All-in-all a lovely friendly team who went out of their way to ensure my whole family's comfort. A pleasure!
