My parents stayed here while visiting me in Pretoria. They raved about Mercia and Willem Steenkamp's excellent service, especially the fabulous breakfasts. The guesthouse is ideally located, within walking distance to the Union Buildings, Hatfield and the embassies, in a beautiful, safe part of town. The building itself is beautifully furnished with a pool and lots of space to lounge around, with tons of great reading material and a wonderful garden. The hosts went above and beyond, even offering rides to my parents and very helpful advice. The parents of two other friends stayed here and both had great experiences. I highly recommend Meintjieskop!

We are a retired French couple from Canada (Montreal) and traveled South Africa during 2 months renting 31 different lodgings. This one was # 2. This is a very beautiful house with pool and enjoyable common areas. We had a room in the extension beside the house called ‘’Colonial’’. Superb!! Excellent bathroom, comfortable big bed. No AC but the ceiling fan was enough. We ate there two nights and the wine and the food were excellent! The owner Murcia and her husband greeted us warmly and helped us a lot concerning things to do and directions. They welcomed us with fresh coffee. We highly recommend this lodging.

I stayed at Meintjieskop for several weeks during consulting jobs in South Africa. The hosts are a true delight and are always on hand to see to your every need while still giving you space if needed. They are very willing to give you guidance in travelling or in my case living in Pretoria. It is very spacious and clean, the food is great, and the location is central while still being very secluded and quiet. While staying there you will find many return guests and that probably says it all.

I recommended the guest house to several fellow consultants who were staying in full service hotels. As far as I know, no one has gone back to hotel living after staying in Meintjieskop. I wouldn't consider staying anyplace else in Pretoria.

We arrived in Pretoria in June enroute to a safari trip in southern Africa. Our bags had been lost in a huge computer malfunction in Heathrow. BA was in chaos. We had 3 days with Mercia and Willem and they did all they could do help us while providing comfortable and restorative accommodation. Mercia in particular really helped us by getting us on the Gautrain up to Johannesburg where we did eventually find our bags on the last day before we had to leave. We had in fact been making a shopping list to replace all our safari stuff and Mercia was helping us with suggestions about shopping etc In the end, all was well and we set off on our trip filled with gratitude and appreciation for the kindness of our hosts. I highly recommend this guesthouse for great value and overall experience if you are in Pretoria.

This place definitely deserves it's rating of 9.2. Situated in the Eastwood district of Pretoria, just 600 metres east of the Union Buildings and just up the hill from Cafe41, which I have also reviewed. The greeting was warm and friendly, the room was clean and bright, we stayed in Colonial 2, there was even a small fridge in the room. There was a king sized bed, very comfortable and well presented, it even had a 'top sheet', which is unusual these days, but all part of the exceptional service. No air con but there is a ceiling fan, which was more than adequate. We only stayed for one night, but I would definitely stay there again.

I was overwhelemed by the freindlyness of the owners. I am vegan and Merci cooked the first time in her life vegan. It was so well done! Great - I was positively overwhelmed and when I come back to Pretoria I will exchange vegan food idas with Merci. Willem did everything to make me feel comfortable and every morning I had my soy milk and all the smiles you need in the morning. Great place to stay!

Dankie!

A lovely spacious room with a balcony overlooking the pool, very thoughtful and friendly hosts who show the best of Afrikaaner hospitality. They make you feel like a guest in their home and not just customers. The proximity to the centre of town makes it very conveniently located. The most impressive thing is the beautiful wooden floored bathroom with a beautiful, old, free-standing bath tub.

Willem and Marcia Steenkamp and family are superb hosts! Even though we spent just one night, they were welcoming, made a great dinner, and their son drove us to the station next day. If you want to learn how an Afrikaaner family has adapted to the inevitable changes in S. Africa, they are thoughtful, and interesting people. Plus, we loved our balcony overlooking the pool, and the walk down Government Street is safe and really pretty, particularly when the jacarandas are blooming in Oct/Nov.
Strongly recommend!

Situated in one of the best and safest suburbs of Pretoria, Meinjieskop Guesthouse is a stone´s throw away from all the major foreign embassies in a steet surrounded by blooming Jakaranda trees during October. Your gracious hostess is willing to go the extra mile to make your stay comfortable and memorable. The room with en suite bathroom is truely a gem and makes for a very pleasant stay. Breakfast is more than adequate and enough for most of the day. There is a patio and swimmingpool for those with the inclination to relax and enjoy the warm weather for most of the year. Also safe parking is available. Wholeheartedly recommended. A true home away from home.

We stayed at the Meintjieskop Guest Lodge for one night in June. The property is located in a very beautiful and safe neighbourhood in Pretoria. The presidential palace is located right across the road and because of that, the property is not subject to power outages due to load shedding.
The rooms themselves (we saw two of them) are very comfortable and nicely appointed. Despite the very cold weather, the rooms were kept warm by the under floor heating and electric blankets.
The location of the property is very good; there are a few restaurants a short walk away and it is nice to walk in the area to see the embassies.
Breakfast was good.
The hosts are extremely helpful and friendly. They went out of their way to ensure that we had a good stay, providing information, tips, etc.
I highly recommend this property and would definitely stay here again if I found myself back in Pretoria.
