Chris and Norma were such wonderful hosts! Warm and so welcoming. I stayed with them for a week, with my daughter. They were both extremely helpful, taking the time on Sunday afternoons to help me unpack my car upon arrival and pack on departure. My room was luxurious with a large bathroom, TV, aircon and kitchenette. I had everything I needed. I will definitely be staying here again!

I was on a business trip - I had a conference at the nearby CSIR conference centre. It was really great staying at Brooks Cottage. Chris and Norma were such great hosts! Its been a while since I had such a great sleep/rest at a guest house. And then you wake up to a friendly host preparing a great breakfast.

Lovely staying with Norma! Greeted with a warm welcome and the rooms have all amenities to make a stay comfortable (add a bit more). Will definitely stay here again. Very close to university and other training colleges, but not noisy at all.

I had a great experience staying at Brooks Cottage while attending a training course near University of Pretoria. My room was luxurious with a huge bathroom, smart tv and aircon. No load shedding due to solar system! Chris and Norma made every effort to ensure I had everything I need.

We stayed here for seven nights whilst visiting family in South Africa, hosts Norma & Chris could not have done anymore for us, breakfast was great, as were the other facilities offered. Would highly recommend Brooks Cottage if you need to visit Pretoria.

Exceptionally congenial hosts provide all kinds of nice touches: complimentary sherry, a couple of delicious biscottis wrapped with a twine bow, a refrigerator with most any kind of beverage you might desire (payment on the honor system), a wealth of information if you are a birdwatcher or just need a haircut. Breakfasts are outstanding. Rooms are large, immaculate and nicely appointed.

Chris and Norma are excellent hosts who put their guests needs first and serve an awesome breakfast that sets you up for the day. Rooms are clean and the beds are clean and comfortable. Something you would expect in a five star hotel.

Norma and Chris are excellent hosts. They go out of their way to be helpful, and are very interesting to talk to. They do their best to work around load shedding, with a backup generator, battery lamps, and trying to keep the Wi-Fi working!We loved our room. There are beautiful pieces of art in the rooms and in the main house. Breakfast was wonderful - I never knew there were so many varieties of orange citrus!

Hands on management and personal attention from the owners made my stay memorable. My room had a good en suite, good shower and kitchenette and was nice and private. Cooked breakfast was varied to personal preference, preceded by areally good selection of fruits.
