The rooms are relatively big and have an amazing bathroom. There are terraces in front of the rooms, which is a plus for smokers. There are many restaurants around and a shopping mall as well as a good supermarket, where you can find what you want. the only disadvantage is the absence of a real restaurant in the guest house,...

Stayed at Chelsea Villa for 4 nights and found the accommodation perfect for my needs. Although it's a little expensive for a guest house, it is central, 15min from city centre, with local restaurants and a Woolies 5 min walk away. The room was well appointed, the aircon was quiet and the hair dryer was not a crappy little piece...
