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,...

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....

We stay in many hotels and consequently tend to play it very safe by staying in the sterile faceless corporate brands, where at least you can always be sure (ish) what you are going to get. Consequently staying at Claires was a bit of departure from normal and at the time seemed a bit of a risk. We needn't have...

Since 2010 I have stayed at Claires each time I have come to Johannesburg on business - so every month. Comfortable rooms and a very accommodating team - I always enjoy staying here. Breakfasts are delicious. The team goes the extra mile - even delivering my laptop power cable to me when i needed it for a presentation!
