This is a brilliant guesthouse - clean, beautiful, and excellent location right near Rosebank and Parkhurst restaurants. The staff truly go above and beyond - no ask is too great, no detail is forgotten. Decor is modern and relaxing, rooms and bathrooms are spacious, and the grounds and common areas are truly lovely. It's a home away from home. Only...

As a boutique hotel reviewer, when I travel outside of work, I spend hours researching a place to stay. To say that I am fussy would be an understatement. Q on First had all the promise of my type of place - small, personally run, a great location, beautiful gardens, somewhat secluded, high-design without the interiors overwhelming - and all...

Me and my colleagues stayed here for almost a week and enjoyed it very much. The staff and owners were warm and welcoming. The rooms were large with comfortable beds and we used the common areas every night for work and dinner. It almost felt like a home away from home. Ray even took us on a guided tour for...

You know you're in a great place when the worst thing you can say about a hotel is that the staff was TOO attentive. The only reason I left off the fifth star is that since there were so few guests, I felt a bit like the staff was sort of keeping tabs on us. When we decided on a...

I found this place while browsing the Internet, looking for a reasonable B&B to crash for 2 nights while my windows were being replaced as part of a major renovation. I was a little apprehensive as I'd never heard of it but the pictures looked good and the lady on the phone sounded nice. Pulling into the carpark I was...

Based on a friend's recommendation, we stayed here at the start and end of our South Africa trip. I think I would describe it more as a boutique hotel than a B&B! The room (and in fact the whole place) is very stylish and spacious and the owners are very welcoming. They were particularly accommodating when we wished to spend...
