I receive such a warm welcome every time I stay at Claires. Great hospitality, spacious comfortable rooms and a fabulous breakfast to top it off! Claires is my first port of call when I travel to Johannesburg!

All the small details were thought about, and the staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. Very knowledgeable and willing to go the extra mile. Every request was met with a smile. We...

My stays at Claires was most enjoyable. Open house with lovely attentive staff and a stunning garden, it was relaxed, comfortable, a home from home. The breakfast was fantastic beautifully prepared and presented. Sandton City was easily accessible by a short taxi ride. I would highly recommend Claires to anyone who wants to experience a taste of South African charm...

Thank you for a memorable stay at your guest house. It was truly a home away from home. The warmth and attention from your staff was outstanding. Zodwa is a gem. The rooms were immaculate and clean and the breakfast was superbly prepared by Zodwa. Breakfast was more fresh and appealing than a hotel breakfast. I will definitely refer your...

My husband and I stayed at Clarie's for almost a week and it truly was like staying in someone's home. The rooms, breakfast, and public spaces are amazing. It was much more comfortable and enjoyable than staying in a chain hotel. We would definitely go back!

So much better than a hotel, very warm welcoming with an unsurpassable level of service. We travelled with our lively 5yr old son who fell in love with both the place and Claire! Good local knowledge of area and a genuine wish to make our stay as enjoyable as possible all add to the list of attributes. Breakfast is fantastic!...

A brilliant guest house that is really a boutique hotel. Luxurious and staffed by the most willing and friendly people you will not go wrong visiting this jewel. The bedrooms are spacious and well equipped with microwave and a very good list of nearby takeaways that deliver.

Thanks to Chantal who also upgraded my room. I will be back in future and will recommend to friends visiting Jo'bourg. Keep it high.

Stayed a weekend here and could have stayed much longer. So lovely to find somewhere in the heart of the city that has a feel of being miles away from town. Chantal and Zodwa could not have been more helpful, and breakfast is just fantastic. Will stay here again and recommend to anyone visiting Jo'burg.
