Dear Gnkadi962722, Thank you for choosing the Murray 137 Street Guesthouse and for taking the time to send your review. I am very sorry to hear that the phone was left at the guesthouse. I followed up with the front desk staff and they advised that the phone was not found in the room. They also advised that you were informed that the phone was not found. We have a very strict lost and found policy, any/all times found in a room after departure is recorded and stored safely for the guests to collect the items from the guesthouse. We do provide safes in our rooms to ensure Guests leave all valuables locked in the safe to ensure we do not have these kind of situations as it is very difficult to pinpoint what happened. We cannot insure Guests personal belongings as it is the owners responsibility to have insurance as needed. I am really sorry that we have disappointed you and do hope that the phone is found. I wish I could do more but unfortunately there is not much I can do at this stage. Please be assured of my and my TEAM’s best attention at all times. Kind regards Bernice

The self-catering unit was absolutely wonderful and the surroundings were stunning. The guesthouse is conveniently located and suited our needs perfectly. It was our second stay at the guesthouse and we loved it even more. Thank you for accommodating us for an extra night, it's always a treat staying at 137@Murray

My stay at the house went well. In general staff was friendly and hospitable. Enjoyed my peaceful morning jog on the quiet streets of Brooklyn. Breakfast and dinner homely. I am suggesting that a provision for shaded parking be arranged especially in the rainy and hot days

My mother and I called ahead to book at 137 Murray guesthouse based on recommendations from Unicef colleagues who place guests on official visits there. We talked to David Sombane on the type of room we wanted and my mother had a follow-up call with him to ensure the room assigned at 137 Murray had a shower since she has had hip replacement surgery and didn’t want to deal with bathtubs. I got a confirmation email with Hotel 224 in the header which puzzled me a bit but given that we had both talked to him about our specifications, I figured it was some sort of holding company. We arrived to be told that we didn’t have a reservation at Murray but that our reservation was at their sister hotel. We were exhausted and rather confused so we asked our driver whether he knew this place and he advised us not to stay in that hotel and location. Luckily, Brooklyn Guesthouse across the street was able to accommodate us and we had a wonderful week long stay there. However, getting a refund for my booking ended up being a pain since we had to go in person to hotel 224 to present my credit card and the friend who initially was willing to drive us there in the evening changed her mind when she heard the location so we had to Uber there the following morning. I must say we really appreciated the professionalism of Bernice van Zijl which was in sharp contrast to the obfuscation of Mr. Sombane. Things ended up working well for us at Brooklyn Guesthouse but consider this fair warning in case he tries this switcheroo move on you.

Dear Semra_Asefa Apology 137 @ Murray Guesthouse Firstly, I would like to thank you for booking with us at 137 @ Murray Guesthouse during your recent visit to Pretoria. Thank you for also taking the time to review and to give us feedback with regards to your recent stay with us. We really appreciate Guest feedback to assist us in ensuring we meet and exceed our Guest expectations. Your comments are highly appreciated! Thank you for also sharing more detail of your experience with us to assist us in making sure we do not make the same mistakes again. My Team and I always do our best to ensure our Guests are well looked after and I am sad to see that we did not give you the good service you deserved. The error was made on our side, and I am so sorry for the inconvenience it has caused you. This situation certainly does not portray the high level of service we pride ourselves in at the Guesthouse. Please accept my sincere apology for the inconvenience and embarrassment we have caused you. I am pleased that Bernice made the situation a bit better. We would like to have a second opportunity to show you what we are capable of and to make up for the unfortunate run of events. Please contact me personally on derick@hotel224.com to make your reservation and I will make sure you are well looked after. Thank you for the opportunity, we do really hope that we will see you soon again. Kind regards Derick Tait General Manager

We had a lovely stay at Murray Street 137 - The Rooms was beautifully decorated, neat and spacious. Bedding and towels are good quality, and I slept like a baby in the king size bed! Our room had a lovely little 'stoepie' overlooking the garden - ideal for a morning coffee.
