Stayed here for two night - room was great, food was amazing, I looked forward to breakfast every morning. Front desk staff and door men in particular so nice (think names were Lauren and John) - will be back:)
I've stayed in Jambo Guest Housel for three days, and cannot recollect anything better. It was all I wanted - easy booking, easy and timely transfer from and to airport, nice greeting by the hosts, very impressivelly designed and decorated house with unique character of each room, beautiful garden, very good location close to the places of interest and at the same time very quite and family-like.
I would recomend Jambo Guest House to any of my friend, and when have the chance to come again, will stay there with great pleasure.
My special thanks and warm greetings to the dear hosts - Barry and Mina. They made their Jambo House so welcoming and comfortable! Wish to come back and meet them again!
Firstly the location is amazing! The views from the hotel rooms are incredible. I do think though that your experience of this hotel will depend on what room you get. I say this because I stayed in two different rooms and they were opposite ends of the scale. Not that one was bad I any way just a bit tired, the other was modern and very nice. The apartments are spotless and very well equipped. The staff were very nice and helped with many things that I asked of them. Request sea view rooms as I am pretty sure they are the ones most recently done up.
The room was clean and impeccable throughout our entire stay. The staff, everyone from the housekeeper to the manager, were all inviting and accommodating. Ignatius, a hotel staff member, was consistently friendly and accommodating of every request to us and other guests. Service was overall great and Lucius and comparable to other 5 star hotels.
This guest house knows exactly what it is (one-step up from a backpackers) and does it very well. It's not a five-star luxury hotel, but if you expect that at these prices then you may need to re-think your travels! It's friendly, clean and inexpensive. The shared bathrooms were always spotless, with plenty of hot water. The rooms were cleaned every day. The breakfast (which costs extra) was great, and the free tea and coffee was a nice touch - especially on the colder days. I stayed for a week while looking for longer-term accommodation in the city, and Wendy in particular went well out of her way to help me with my search - passing on information, connecting me with other guests in the same position, and even coming with me to see an apartment. I really can't say enough good things...
What a pleasure it is to find a home which someone has generously converted into a boutique b&b. The building is neatly set back from the main road and commands a lovely view towards the Atlantic beyond the parklands at Green/Sea Point.
The rooms and facilities are beautifully presented and airy, with full use being made of a central yard. The lounge and dining area are particularly comfortable and inviting all day, while the honesty bar is stocked with all the quality ingredients for a relaxing [and inexpensive] sit-around.
Shopping, restaurants and bars are conveniently located, but it is best to check with staff before setting off where to go. Parking at the front of the property is secure.
The staff, from the owner right through to the maids, are charming, helpful and interested in their guests.
All-in-all, this is a real home from home, neatly perched on the edge of the city and the green suburbs.
