My wife and I were very fortunate to find this lovely guesthouse while on a one month trip through Southern Africa. We had to get a Covid test in Pretoria and as luck would have it the guest house was very close to the medical center. Rooms are stylish and well appointed. The hosts are helpful, charming and interesting people. We enjoyed our short one night stay so much that we decided to stay again a week later after traveling to Mozambique before flying out of Johannesburg. This is a great option since you he airport is only 30 minutes away. Asides from the above mentioned highlights, my wife and I both agreed that the bed in our room was the best bed we slept in during our entire month in Africa! Highly recommended.

We stayed at Ambiance for 3 nights and were more than warmly welcomed. A lovely place and the host provide you with all necessary information about Pretoria and arround. Including recommendations on best SA wines. The rooms are spacious and fully equippt. Even the fridge was filled. We recommend it for families as well as for people on business travel.
