My partner and I enjoyed our stay at Northcliff Manor - beautiful house with so much history and character. The staff, especially Anna was just so helpful and kind. We enjoyed the relaxed and beautiful surroundings and tranquility this house offers. The breakfast was excellent. We loved our stay and hope to one day return.........

The accommodation with a difference. If you love staying in a B&B with history, then this is the place. Absolutely stunning décor, safe, beautiful gardens, views over Johannesburg and perfectly located. The staff were very friendly and helpful. But the highlight is the breakfast's! No hesitation to recommend.
