Having travelled quite a bit I think this is the best place we have ever stayed. The rooms were supremely comfortable, the breakfast very nice, and the staff the most friendly i've ever met. In addition we felt very safe in a city we had been nervous about prior to arrival, and they went out of their way to help...

Hi Nerine. We value your patronage and all, from the Smollan Group. A home away from home is exactly as you describe it. The dinners & lunches are a new inclusion in our service to guests.

A compact establishment with good service and excellent beds. Reception is manned 24 hours and the breakfast is freshly cooked to your requirements. The rooms are of decent size and offer coffee/tea facilities. The staff are friendly and willing to assist wherever. There is off road parking but it is mostly in tandem and could be a problem when some...

We felt really welcomed by each and everyone of the staff members; Ella, Thandi, Alfred, Rabson. No problem was too big for them to solve, with huge smiles, they rearranged our rooms from kingsized beds to single beds, at 10pm! Breakfasts each morning during our entire stay, was very enjoyable, mostly due to Ella's cooking skills! We loved the friendly...

Home away from home. should be my 6th year staying here when I am traveling to Mzansi, (Local lingo for South Africa). Love the quiet back roads of Norwood where the guesthouse is situated, in old laid back Jewish neighbourhood. Relaxed atmosphere and very friendly staff. Walking distance to pleasant restaurants and shopping malls.

Located within the bustling, vibey suburb of Norwood, this little guest house has so much to recommend it. The rooms were so very spacious and comfortable, and as charming as the rest of the place. But perhaps the best part was the incredible friendliness of the staff. We were the only guests for the one night that we stayed, and...

This is only my second poor review with Trip Advisor. We stay at B&B's to meet local people, and while the staff are more than kind and helpful, We were not getting the help that we needed.

“All of them are very clean, of good size and good value.”
 of 5 bubbles waldmeister1, 6 Oct 2014 | Read review
“Amazingly all of the rooms are very similar in terms of layout, each spacious with two twins or a king bed (optional) and an en-suite restroom. Tip would be that the front bedroom although slightly larger, is a bit more susceptible to morning noises as it is at the front of the house. The back 4 bedrooms are nearly identical, but the one with the added kitchen (tempting because it has a bit more space) gets limited internet access. Other than that... you can't miss!”
