is perfectly situated in the leafy, central Rosebank, an upmarket suburb of South Africa’s commercial centre, Johannesbug.
We want our guests to feel spoilt. Everything is centred around this, from the luxurious bathrooms, to the extra-length beds, plush cushions, exotic fabrics, fresh-cut flowers, and delicious French cuisine.
Housed in a 60-year old Cape Dutch house, Clico is an engaging mix of old and new – from the original Oregon pine floorboards and antique inlaid-wood side tables from Morocco, to custom-made, comfortable couches and the modern, whimsical sculptures by Anton Smit.
Clico Guesthouse is poised to cater for upmarket corporate guests as well as leisure-seeking tourists. Whether you’re after wireless internet from a plush armchair, or a perfect martini made with Tanqueray gin after a tour to Soweto or the Cradle of Humankind, we’re here to indulge you.
Clico Guesthouse accommodation
We offer nine luxurious rooms, all with beautifully fitted en-suite bathroom, mini-bar, feather-soft, extra-length bed, flat-screen TV with a range of satellite channels, desk-cum-dressing table, air-conditioning and under-carpet heating.
Four of the rooms have balconies, while the remaining 5 rooms open onto the garden. One room is wheelchair-accessible.
The rooms are individually furnished in warm, earthy browns, creams and soft greens, while the bathrooms are luxuriously appointed, from the designer taps to the light fittings which double as heaters. Most of the furniture has been custom-made for Clico by Dilly Lill’s, trendsetters in hotel furnishings.
The modern décor complements the old-fashioned house, gently juxtaposing old and new in a manner guests will find relaxing and familiar.
Business services include telephones in the rooms, wireless internet and ADSL, fax, scanning and photocopying facilities, to keep guests in contact with the outside world while in a tranquil environment. Secure parking on the premises.
The common lounge area boasts a fully stocked “honesty bar”, from which guests can help themselves while warming up in front of a log fire in winter, or cooling down on an outside patio or beside the pool in summer.
The landscaped gardens make the escape from city life complete. A “Fairy Garden”, incorporating an extensive wooden deck, is available for private functions, such as intimate weddings.
