“Home from home”
Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

I have just spent an excellent weekend hosted @ Claire's of Sandton.

Where do I start....

Centrally located
Spacious parking (rare in this day and age! )
Relaxed but professional team!
Excellent breakfast choice
Rooms with attention to detail (multiple adaptors,microwave,bar fridge,double his and hers basins,underfloor heating,couch! )

What made the stay something special is I was unwell during my stay and Chantelle and Zodwa did as much as possible to assist me even giving me some medication.

Thank you so much. You guys really went the extra mile.There is a reason Claire's is rated so highly and now I know why!

as comfortable as home. spacious bedroom and bathroom. friendly staff with a sense of humour and delicious breakfast. place of choice when in jhb.price is reasonable for a guest house of this standard.good to wake up to birdsong in a garden setting. Chantalle and Zodwa are helpful, friendly and both have a sense of humour which makes staying there even more welcoming.
there are some good restaurants nearby and Sandton is not too far away. my colleagues raved about the omlettes they had for breakfast and my only complaint was that i ate too much!!

The friendly staff feel more like family and this for me, just makes all the difference. The rooms are impeccable, the breakfasts are scrumptious and the location is perfect.
For this reason, I dont always get the opportunity to stay at Claires as they are usually booked well in advance and I tend to travel at short notice.
They remain for my first choice however and I would recommend them well above any other establishment in the Sandton area!

Claires offers the prefect combination of privacy, top service and a personal approach. Ideal for business travelers who need to stay in the Sandton area and do not want to deal with a Hotel. The breakfast in Claires is top notch and all the staff is super friendly. Rooms and surroundings are very comfortable. It is my home away from home.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good.

The staff are always exceptionally helpful. The rooms are always spotless. There is tea, coffee etc and a microwave in each of the rooms which is great if you are having a night in. The breakfast is excellent!

Claire's was fantastic value for money and was a lovely place to stay. Our room was equipped with heated floors in the bathroom - so when we had to go in the middle of the night in winter - it wasn't a horrible experience. The staff were fantastic and helpful and the breakfast (made to order!) was delicious. The only reason it didn't get 5 starts is the location is a bit difficult to find - as it is in a maze of streets from the nearest big location (Santon City).
