Pretoria, South Africa
Reviewed 1 week ago

As you drive through the huge gates onto the magnificent property you realize you have arrived! The front door opens and as you look through the reception area you sea Pretoria laid out before you. The suites too are magnificent. I can only recommend this place to anyone visiting Pretoria.

I liked a lot the nice and warm atmosphere and the perfect service of the full team. The food (breakfast, dinner) was excellent! One negative commend from my side are the older carpets in the rooms. I would like to suggest to replace them soon. I am looking already forward to be your guest soon, most likely in November this...

I was invited to a wedding at Villa Sterne and was thoroughly disappointed. The South African Tuscan ambience does not impress at all, but the view over Pretoria is fantastic and that makes for a very nice reception, until the food is served. A buffet was on offer and it was less interesting than fish and chips fried in old...

Dear JKG416, Thank you for the time to write a review on Villa Sterne. Villa Sterne is a Italian-styled architectural with a hint of Africa family owned business.

Reviewed 13 February 2017

Villa Sterne is painfully close to a 5 star property. Let me start with the Pros: The grounds are immaculate. Upon entering the security gate, the lush lawn and brick driveway welcome you into a impressive italian style villa, conveying a sense of peace and tranquility that I previously thought impossible in Pretoria. One enters upon a grand hall to...

I stay here regularly as it is good value, good size rooms, nice location. Rooms 2, 3, 4 and 5 are my favorites, with 2, 3 and 4 overlooking Pretoria from on top of the hill. Room 1, is right beside the lounge area and reception so gets a little bit of noise. It is OK, just not my preference....
