As a corporate traveller I have high expectations. Having worked on projects in 19 countries on 4 continents I have experienced the highs and lows in securing decent accommodation. Coral Tree exceeded my expectations. Outstanding hospitality from hosts who are well travelled themselves and can truely connect with foreigners. The hosts previous catering school experience shines through with excellent food. Clean well equipped rooms with excellent attention to the small details that really matter. Outstanding value, exceeding all expectations.

We were looking for a quiet place to stay in Pretoria while my daughter studied for her final university exams. Coral tree house was perfect. The area, Magalieskruin, is a beautiful suburb outside the bustle of Pretoria. The host most helpful. Our room was very private and comfortable with a good quality bed! Tea and coffee provided. Lovely out door area for relaxing near the pool.
Would definitely recommend this place as a lovely stopover

We arrived 30am and it very difficult to access the place but it's worth visiting.
Although it was early in the morning and everybody was in deep sleep .the management opened and welcomed us with both hands.
The bedrooms are very big and artistic with French touch and ambestically
Vibe.
The breakfast was not much but lovely and we'll prepared and I was in love with it with the mountain views.
We were taken care off and I will urge and recommend it to all tourist becoz of its quietness and warmth welcome.
Everyone wants to feel at home and the environment is stress relieving.

Upon making a reservation for two nights at Coral Tree House on Bookings.com, I was notified by the owner to cancel the booking online as he would give me a better price. I did so and transferred the money and was told all was confirmed. One month later, the day before my flight, I called to re-confirm and was told he never received the payment and they were fully booked, even though I had clearly emailed the proof of payment one month in advance. Finally after re-checking his emails, the owner remembered that I had paid one month back but said there was nothing he could do now because there was no room available for us. To no avail, we were put into another B&B nearby which did not meet our standards. Andre did not bother to meet us upon arrival nor compensate for the grave and inconvenient mistake he made. He was nothing but rude over the phone. Disgusting, pathetic and completely unprofessional service. Would definitely not recommend.

I am glad our stay was just for 6 hours.

I would prefer my own Gate Key / Seperate Entrance & more privacy.

Room had cat urine smell as animals are allowed inside.

Warm water was cold as well.

Friendly people, just not to my liking.

We chose Coral Tree House based on other Tripadvisor reviews and seem to have been unlucky with our time there as none of our expectations were met. We stayed in the Family room, which was pleasant and well furnished, but found a fridge that had not been cleaned from precious tenants and tea/coffee supplies that needed replenishing. There was a single and almost-finished roll of toilet paper in the bathroom. The bed was hard, but we did sleep well after a long journey, only to be woken at first light by the family dogs barking loudly. The worst aspect was breakfast, which was extremely limited. No fresh fruit, no choice of cereals (only one premixed option). The hot breakfast was egg and tomato. We do not eat beef and the beef sausage was the only other option on offer. My husband was given two eggs while my daughter and I were each given one. Very strange.

From the moment we arrived Marianne and Andre went the extra mile to make our stay very memorable. Our room was superb and very comfortable with patio doors leading to the garden and pool. The two dogs were delightful and amusing - they obviously take after their owners! Would recommend eating at Coral Tree as the food was delicious and the company great. Rovos Rail station is a short drive away and if we ever take another Rovos trip would definitely stay again. We arrived as guests and left as friends.

A beautiful, scenic environment complemented by wonderful hosts who will always strive to try and make your stay more pleasurable and comfortable. The ambiance at Coral Tree House is tranquil, the perfect place to relax after an eventful day of business. I would recommend anyone to stay without a moment's thought.

Throughout our stay Andre went out of his way to make our trip pleasant. He greeted us with cold beer after our long and tiresome drive, shared fun stories and even loaned us a map book when he found out we had gotten lost. The room was clean and modern. The breakfast of ostrich mince and omelette was delicious! The two dogs and two cats were most amusing. The only negative we had was the outdoor swimming pool looked rather nasty but we weren't interested in swimming anyway. We'd definitely stay here again.

Andrei (might be misspelling his name) warmly welcomed us to the guesthouse with his two amusing dogs...
It was great to have a place that helps with everything - from help with laundry services to lovely hand drawn maps on how to get to aforementioned laundromat and very nice restaurant in the area.
