Deidre has become like family! The service standard, friendly faces, privacy and security is all top notch! You can count on them for a long or short stay and will be guaranteed of the best travel experience! Ambiance feels like an extension of home and it has the comfort of visiting with family with the privacy of a hotel!

Very good value for money and can strongly recommend Ambiance Guest House. An added bonus is that shops and malls are closely situated. The rooms are spacious and modern with tasteful decor.I enjoyed the personal touches which came at no extra cost.

We met Deidre and she showed us round her home, which she obviously loves. She ensured that the four of us were happily at home. The suites had the clasic touch of an interiot designer and were appointed better than any upmarket hotel room. The rooms and the grounds were first class.

We enjoyed every minute of our stay and didn't want to leave. I loved the tranquil setting, the beautiful garden and rooms with a touch of french elegance and Deidre's attention to detail. All rooms have a private entrance/patio, complementary decadent treats in the room and everything else needed to make it a perfect stay. The guesthouse is situated in...

The Units are well appointed, all...

This is the best B& B in South Africa. You are welcomed with the most decadent treats in your room, Deidre and her team really makes an effort to make you feel welcome.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Deidré really does her best to make you feel at home. She pays attention to every detail--anything you could possibly need is provided in the room, and she even makes delicious breakfast to order every morning. The guest house is located in a nice quiet neighborhood with lots of shopping and dining nearby. We...

A comfortable, clean and neat place to stay. I would not hesitate to recommend this beautiful place to anyone. Cheerful, helpful and courteous hosts. I would go back again if given an opportunity. A quiet place for couples to recoil. A well secure place.
