Le Châtelat is a boutique guest house in Johannesburg that caters for exclusive clientele, both business travellers and jet-setting holiday makers.

"It is my role to ensure that the guest house is functioning as expected," says Arianne Bechard, general manager of Le Châtelat.

"We have six suites, one presidential room and a self-catering cottage with two rooms."

Bechard also bakes cakes for the guests who receive them as complimentary gifts.

Her nickname is "Mamgobhosi" - the know it all.

"I also entertain our guests by singing for them. I sing for our guests in several languages such as Zulu, English, French, Chui, which is a Ghanaian language and I also sing Italian opera."

"We are Johannesburg's best kept secret and our motto is to give the client an environment that is home away from home."

The guest house receives high-profile clients from South Africa and the rest of the word, including members of royal families, celebrities, famous authors, government officials and top business people.

"Privacy is our policy because of our exclusive guest list."

Her first job in the industry was at Lemon Tree Fusions, where she was known as "the singing waitress". Later she became a restaurant manager at Fancourt, which was her introduction to the corporate world.
