Guest Comments

Dear Jenny
Thanks once again for having us at your guesthouse and for the hospitality shown. We spent the day brainstorming into 2015 and our Franchisees loved being there. It was a fresh approach to the often dull conference venues, and the peaceful and intimate environment was enjoyed by all. In addition, the food was lovely - and everything just seemed to work well and facilitate a really productive day. Please extend our thanks to your lovely staff for their assistance and warmth.

Job and Miriam Madziwanyika, Zimbabwe

Stayed for a month recuperating. Chislehurst is the best place for short and long stays, and the best for recuperation. Its beautiful surroundings, wonderful hospitality are second to none. Jenny and Roger make a great couple and fantastic hosts. Elna is the best, and Mashudu is good too. A young gentleman joined the staff to tend to the beautiful gardens - he fits right in. Five to six star rating from me who is very well travelled having visited or stayed in most continents for my work.

Mike and Emily Anwana, Doha, Qatar

We stayed one week (July 2012) in Chislehurst Guest House. Upon arrival we received a warm welcome from Jenny and Roger and it did not take long for us to feel at home. The room we stayed in was spacious, clean and had a large bath with separate shower. Being winter in SA it was nice to find movie channels on the TV and even our home station BVN was available. The wireless internet connection had nearly the same quality and speed as back home. The terrace, pool and garden house provided all needed to relax. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was full English style with fresh fruits, orange juice and yoghurt. In summary, our stay was exceeding expectations and we will come again, but next time we will put some time aside to listen to the experiences from Jenny and Roger over a nice glass of local wine!
