We invite you to Northcliff Manor Guest House, one of the earliest homes built in 1937 against the Northcliff hill in the heart of Egoli The City of Gold. On arrival you will be overwhelmed by wonderment, calm and beauty as result of the architecture, luxurious accommodation and lush landscape.

This unique, historical and architectural gem of Northcliff has been restored with passion, respect and the comfort of guests in mind. Ilse is an artist. She graduated at the Michaelis School of Fine Art (U.C.T) with distinction in painting and was the top Matric Art Scholar in the Cape Province. Her mother, Venus Gobregts, is also a widely acclaimed artist.

Her exquisitely crafted paintings, filled with glorious colour, pomegranates, poppies, figs and other luscious symbols, are a delight and inspiration for all to behold.

The Manor was designed by the acclaimed architect W. B. Pabst. Bernard Pabst was the carrier of the German Expressionism 1920s Berlin to South Africa. He arrived here during the 1930s. His architectural designs were quite distinctive, unconventional, irregular and asymmetrical.

History of Northcliff Manor Guest House:
The Manor was built as a wedding gift to Ms Helen Suzzman, the well known anti-apartheid politician. She was the Progressive Partys only representative, for 13 years, in a hostile, Afrikaans and male dominated Apartheid Parliament.

During her lifetime she was awarded 27 honorary doctorates and made an honorary Dame Commander of the order of The British Empire. She was also nominated twice for the Nobel Peace Prize. Sadly, at the age of 91 years old, she died on New Years Day 2009, but the legend lives on.

My friends has enjoyed their stay in the Honey Moon suite. They couldn't stop talking about the hospitality they have experienced.
Thank you to Johnny and his wife for all they have done to make Mr and Mrs Visagie's wedding night a bliss.

N1 traveling from Pretoria towards Bloemfontein. Take M5 (Beyers Naude) off ramp. At traffic lights turn left towards Cresta. Travel along Beyers Naude for 3.9km. Turn right into Frederick Drive. Follow Frederick Drive and pointers up the hill. Turn left into Hearn drive which is the 4th road to the left.
