Most beautiful boutique hotel in Waterkloof, Pretoria. Everything and everyone were spectacular. We loved the large, well maintained gardens, spacious rooms with comfortable beds, delicious breakfast and the warmest and friendliest staff I’ve ever came across in all my travels across the globe.
I was really blown away by the helpfulness and warmth of the staff who even ironed our saris to perfection. My only regret is not having used this hotel as a venue for my daughter’s wedding. It’s such a shame that we only got to know of Apogee after we had paid a deposit at another hotel close to Apogee.
At Apogee we were made to feel like royalty and we will most certainly come back. Thank you Apogee for a memorable 2 days.

We booked the honeymoon suite for our wedding night and we were thoroughly spoiled from start to finish. The bedding, pillow choices and bathroom were all fantastic and little things like no charge for items from the minibar all contributed to a wonderful stay that we will never forget. Shadrack and Nandipha, you guys ROCK

The hotel is on the hill overlooking beautiful view of Pretoria and Union Building. Room is very well appointed and spacious, with espresso machine and kettles, large flat screen TV etc. It is a boutique hotel with smaller number of rooms, so it is never crowded and completely privacy is assured. Restaurant is of very high standard. Break fast is full of very creative and tasty menus to choose from, and lunches/dinners menus are very comprehensive and creative. Drink menue is also extensive. The hotel feels more like a private residence, as it does not have receptions, concierge etc., but instead have a "butler" whom you can call from room with one touch and ask anything. Payments can be done anywhere in the hotel with tablets and credit card machines. If you need quietness, privacy, high quality residential environment, comfortable rooms and high standard cuisine, I highly recommend this hotel.

We had a wonderful time at Apogee. From the time we arrived we were treated as royalty. Rooms are spacious, clean and well stocked. There was a wide variety of channels on the TV and the WiFi was fast and you had signal everywhere on the property. Wonderful artwork all over the property if you want take a stroll. Tribute restaurant is well worth the visit, describing the food as excellent does not do it justice. They have a variety of excellent wines to accompany the food and makes for a truly fine dining experience. The staff is friendly, professional and always willing to assist in making your stay as comfortable as possible. The hotel is situated in a quiet area close to many embassies and the views of Pretoria is breath taking.

What an awesome experience this has been. From the parking bay to settling in, we were treated as if we were the only people there. The service is top notch, not to mention the food and the rooms. The bathrooms are out of this world with the rain showers just tingling down your back. The view from all the rooms are breathtaking. Thank you for making us feel special.

From the minute we drove in to the Apogee we were wowed! The service is beyond expectation, and the rooms are 5 star. We were blown away by the staff and service. The snack room was hyped up too much and is only filled with sweet things and not much in it, I would recommend chips and biscuits to be added. We loved staying here, thank you so much Lesedi and every staff member. (Ps cocktails are amazing too)

The Apogee Hotel is located in a refurbished mansion with an amazing hilltop view of Pretoria. The service is stellar as is the food. We stayed in a Junior suite which was located on the ground floor with a smoking balcony in the front and a sitting balcony with a partial city view. The décor is comfortably modern with every convenience and wonderful artwork. The grounds and pool area are filled with beautiful bronze sculptures and the interior public rooms are laden with South African paintings, sculptures, and photographs. The hotel is beautiful and well worth a visit. One thing to note: The hotel is completely cashless meaning no tills so if you want to tip the housekeepers and other staff bring enough ZAR to do so.

What a great night away from JHB - from the moment we arrived we were treated like Royalty - and to top this off we were upgraded to the Honeymoon Suite (Fantastic View, Spacious Room and tons of storage space)! The staff were extremely friendly and there wasn't anything to big or too small that they weren't willing to assist with. There Hotel is filled with Local art and Sculptures, which are available to purchase. The food at Tribute was out of this World, I would highly recommend just going to Apogee for a Lunch or Dinner if you are unable to stay over. We will definitely be back!!

Apogee is an amazing hotel and definitely an excellent option to celebrate a special occasion or company event. The view from the room balcony and pool area is simply breathtaking more so, @ sunset. Staff are all very friendly and special attention was given to 'Covid protocols', during check-in and all through our stay. The bar is well stocked and the cocktail selection although not extensive was very good. Will definitely be back!!

This excellent out of town hotel offers top notch service. The surrounding area is quite and very safe. Car parking is secured. The hotel staff respond to any requests promptly with a genuine customer service. The hotel restaurant is really good quality food so much so there are as many outside restaurant guests as there hotel guest using this super restaurant. Rooms are spacious linen, towels along with bath robes and slippers make for a memorable stay.
