Lovely place, lovely people!! Kerry Ann, South Africa

I was impressed by the way my query (regarding the Guest House) was dealt with by both the manager of this site, and the prompt reply from Lorraine at Jubilane!
Because I travelled on the last plane of the night, and still had the drive from the airport to Houghton, I arrived at Jubilane very late at night. Lorraine and Lindiwe were absolutely lovely about the very very late hour.
The event for which I had travelled to Jo'burg from Cape Town (in the middle of the week!!!) was bound to be hectic and a bit stressful . . . "exhausting" is a fair description. However, on walking into the gracious, quietly-but-elegantly furnished suite, I knew that I'd be happy there for twice as long as my booking was officially for!!! And I've certainly arrived home in Cape Town with the definite aim of sourcing Jacuzzi/spa baths for my own bathrooms!!
There were children in the house when I was there, but they were totally inaudible - and when they were around (a couple of times at breakfast) they were lovely to chat with.
This is a well run, well ordered place to stay, kept excellent by the management - and I truly loved being there!
