This was my 3rd visit to Eileen....and hopefully not the last. We have family nearby and 49 on Norman is a perfect location for us The guesthouse is always pristine, spotlessly clean and has everything you need. Tea/coffee/water in the room, a powerful hairdryer, lovely comfortable bed and gorgeous bathrooms. The attention to detail can be seen everywhere, from the linen, to the decorations and artwork. The grounds are peaceful and Eileen is the perfect host, nothing too much trouble. The staff are wonderful, cheerful and attentive. Breakfast is delicious, fresh fruit salad, yogurt, cereals, spreads, cakes, cooked breakfast (always cooked exactly how you want it). There is safe parking and if you need anything, Eileen is always happy to point you in the right direction. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Joburg and highly recommend.

49 on Norman Road is a home away from home :) A big shoutout to the owner of the guesthouse: the Vivacious Ms. Eileen. She is the perfect host anybody could ever have. She makes the best omelets in the morning :P . 49 on Norman road provides you one of the best amenities you need in your stay. From security to hospitality, to comfort and to the location, everything is just perfect :) Looking forward to another stay in the great property.
