Chantal & Johan were very welcoming, from the minute they picked us up at the airport we knew we were in good hands & this was a great start of our South African exploration! Everything was perfect even when we returned for an extra night, we still felt very welcomed, a place to say "a home away from home". Our sincere thanks to both of you and your staff. As I already said before, you deserve 5 STARS, with no doubt. Keep up the great work and may you be successful in the many more years to come. WE WILL BE BACK!
Can't budge much about location, if one wanted to be in the city then they should have not booked this place. This place has it all, peace & quiet and the surroundings, sounds of birds, just like waking up in the nature, its very close to the airport and just off the highway, so you can easily get anywhere, but you'll need to rent a car to get around. Perfect location, away from the big city craze!

It was a ver brief, but very pleasant experience at Chamonix Guest House on the 19th June 2008. We only arrived at 23h30, but the rooms were invitingly warm and the sheets crisp and comfortable.
It was early to rise, and a full breakfast was served at 8h30, the aroma and herbs and spices leaving a lingering taste for most of the morning. There is a plunge pool and a lapa for evening drinks, but we were not there long enough to enjoy them. Maybe in summer time we will return to enjoy the other facilities that Chamonix offers.

My only small gripe is that I did not have the telephone number and when I tried to find it in the telephone directory and on electronic yellow pages, it was not available. Apart from that, it was a wonderful experience and I recommend it.

The must be one of the best b&b's I have ever stayed at. Beats any hotel at the airport in terms of service, comfort and value for money. Fantastic food and attention to detail by the owners. Friendly, hospitable and a convenient transport service to and from the airport. Highly recommended.
