What a Wonderful Stay - thank you Ella and her team. Your passion and commitment to your Geusts is without question. This lovely tranquil Guest House set in a safe, beautiful area, which was a pleasure to explore has the added bonus of of someone that is totally committed to meeting her Guests every need, while still allowing one privacy and time to relax. Your hospitality, professionality, reasonable prices and attention to detail in your beautifully immaculate rooms sets you head and shoulders above the rest. The beautifully presented and delicious breakfast went down so well too. We arrived as strangers and left as friends. Will definitely stay here again.

Ella the host is very warm, friendly welcoming and really helpful same as Vusi (staff). The rooms are very nice, comfortable and clean, the location is ideal in a very safe area and close to a shopping center and big mall. Property has a relaxing garden and each room has a small outside seating area that is all very private. Definitely would recommend to anyone who is looking for accommodation in Pretoria.

Ella & her team were phenomenal from the very first email booking inquiry right through to the end of my stay. Ella's service and that of her team was excellent. the guest house is stunning, clean and made my stay even more comfortable with its luxurious feel and attention to detail. My every request was met with efficiency and my expectations were met beyond what I hoped. I highly recommend 174 Premier Guest House for anyone who wants excellence in accommodation and service.

We hosted our clients from Wocester. Our Clients were very happy with full service package! Security in place and so reception and the attention to detail was exceptional. Will make use of this service again.
Also parking for high overland vehicles -normally a problem at entrance.

The guesthouse is located in a quiet area and is near to shops, restaurants and offices, clean rooms and very very friendly staff. O R Tambo International Airport is only a 30 minutes drive away. Hotel manager John is always available and doing his very best to make you feel comfortable and at home.

We stayed at Cascades for almost 3 months when we went to Pretoria to have our third child (any noise complaints in reviews from April to June would be because of our kids - sorry)

We could not have picked a better place. Clean, comfortable, spacious rooms and a fantastic staff made our experience wonderful.

The location cannot be beat, walking distance to a grocery store and some restaurants (essential if you don't have a car as Pretoria is a car town and taxis are expensive and relatively difficult to get although it seems Uber is getting popular).

If you are in the U.S. Foreign service they are familiar with rules and regs and it is just a few blocks from the CMR with community center with gym and pool.

It seemed that they were used to catering to diplomats from many different countries.

Anyway, whenever I am passing through Pretoria in the future I will be sure to stay here without a second thought and encourage my colleagues to do the same.

I am spending three nights at this guest house. The bedrooms are located around the perimeter of an attractive garden and seating area. They are spacious, well presented with a decent internet connection and I have enjoyed a superb sleep in a very comfortable bed. Breakfast was fine and the overall value-for-money is very good.

Thanks Smiler_8, I am glad you enjoyed staying here! Eduard and Asina spend a lot of time in the garden to make it the haven it is in the city. I find a proper internet connection to be essential when travelling, so I am glad you found our internet connection to be good. A good sleep, a filling, fresh breakfast and value-for-money is what we strive for, so thanks for the compliment.

Hi gulietta, We have a lovely professional spa culture in South Africa. The prices are quite affordable in comparison with other countries. We can make an appointment at a nearby spa (+- 5 km) and arrange for transport to and back. We also have relationships with beauty therapists who will come and do the therapies on site. I have a room dedicated for this purpose for daytime use. Only thing, we have to make appointments ahead of time, so please let us know your requirements so that we could make the arrangements before your arrival.
