Cosy, comfy and homeley! Friendly , helpful staff!
Beautifully decorated rooms with small touches of detail... love the filter coffee with biscuit for early mornings. An breakfast option available in the special Breakfast Room awaits hungry visitors(pre-arranged). The lush garden surrounds the guest house- home away from home!

As we drove through the busy centre of Pretoria we worried about the location and what we might find but as we turned into the road and uphill to the Waterhouse we were very pleasantly surprised. A quiet and pretty guesthouse - an oasis in the city.
Very attentive staff, pretty 'vintage french' themed room (no aircon but the fan worked fine).
The breakfast was excellent - yummy granola and yoghurt starter and very good cooked breakfast if you wanted.

I had a peaceful, relaxing and comfortable stay while my husband was in ZA Hospital. Chantelle was extremely helpful in changing our accommodation dates, due to unforeseen circumstances. Sanna was always cheerful, helpful and a pleasure to have around. Tsepo seemed to be the "Jack of all trades" and even washed my car upon my leaving. i can definitely recommend WATERHOUSE GUEST LODGE and would use them again when necessary.

Tsepo at reception gives excellent service. 10/10
My suggestion is that the owner gets a lady to stay in a room for a couple of days and note what each room needs. Eg. I stayed in 2 rooms, Lily & Jasmine, Lily small & cramped, the bathroom door doesn't shut, rather cold after a shower, no space in shower to put your soap, shampoo etc, needs a plug for your hair dryer in the bathroom. The tree on the stoep is a problem with all the seeds dropping, you can not sit outside at all.
Jasmine is beautiful and sunny, no shelves to pack your clothing, only hanging space, no ice tray, no water bottle, and a leaking shower. NO wifi reception in both the rooms.
The area is perfect, lovely and quiet. Security is tops. I will definitely stay there again. .
The cleaning staff is also very professional.

I had a great stay at Waterhouse's Basil Room for about a week on a business trip. The wifi was great and the location was peaceful and quiet so I could work undisturbed. Its located in a beautiful area of Pretoria with beautiful huge trees and other flora on and around the property.
The manageress Chantelle was very helpful while the room maid Rosemary kept the room neat and tidy. If I ever go to Pretoria again I will definitely book in at Waterhouse again and can certainly recommend it to anyone.

Regards
Helge Schutz

Beautiful place, really well taken care of, and heart warming service - is what you get at Waterhouse Guest House in Muckleneuk. You get Chantelle's (the booking Manager) full attention to detail and availability to your every need, as well as the nicest people attending all your requests, always with a smile on their face and a kind word. The place is just beautiful and the rooms are so comfortable and tenderly kept that you just gain a home away from home - and stop looking for alternatives to stay in Pretoria. I really hope I "have to" go back to this place again and enjoy the quietude and the pleasure it already gave me.

Waterhouse Guest Lodge in Muckleneuk is a beautiful gem nestled in a picturesque garden. It is centrally located near the various embassies.

Chantelle, was extremely helpful. She was warm, welcoming and friendly. She made various recommendations for dinner and advised on the driving routes, which greatly assisted me.

I would highly recommend this guest house if you are looking for something elegant, clean and comfortable with exceptional service.

We had to be at Muelmed Hospital and Waterhouse is perfectly located for this. The rooms are large, exactly as advertised, comfortable, clean and just perfect really. This was superb value for money and I would definitely recommend Waterhouse Guest Lodge to anyone. The Wi-Fi is fast and stable, we don't watch much TV, but there seemed to be quite a lot of channels, the beds are comfortable, sheets and pillows are great quality, the water pressure is perfect, there was lovely filter coffee for the plunger, a microwave to re-heat your take-aways, everything you need for a comfortable stay. Chantelle was a perfect host.

I booked the Daisy room for my mom to stay while my Dad was in Zuid-Afrikaans Hospital. The staff was incredibly friendly and very supportive of my mom. Staff accompanied my mom when she sometimes walked to hospital to visit my dad. The helped her to take her luggage to and from her car. Since I live almost 3 hours away from Pretoria, it gave me a sense of peace knowing that she is looked after very well. The guesthouse is tranquil and the room was beautiful and had everything she needed for her stay during a very traumatic time. It is very close to Brooklyn mall. I will definitely recommend it.
