Excellent location, close to all the major business centers and the staff makes you feel like you are at home. The rooms were clean and comfortable. There is also bottomless coffee which helps after a long day in the office.

Friendly hosts, clean and comfortable rooms at a decent price per night, very central location. I just think communication around breakfast times should be better. But otherwise a very pleasant stay!!

Booking was made through a third party (Lekkeslaap), even though the photos of the rooms were very misleading and needs to be updated, booking through Lekkeslaap was simple and efficient as always.

The Guesthouse, however, never personally confirmed the booking, ignored the personal communication attempts made to organize special requests for a birthday, even the most simple request such as ensuring two twin beds and not 1 shared bed in the room was ignored, they definitely don't go the extra mile. Upon check in we struggled to get in at the gate as no one was attending the reception, they moved us to another room other than what was booked so we ended up in the noisey main house with a room that had a joined door with the next room that we could not lock, making the stay very odd and uncomfortable. It was never communicated that breakfast was included or service time of breakfast so we made alternative breakfast arrangements that could not be cancelled just to awkwardly find out the next morning upon check out that they already prepared food, wasting money. The rooms could do with an upgrade, kettle wasn't working, shower needed a deepclean, carpet in the room was filthy, we never received our clean towels as promised, fan was on the verge of giving in and room was extremely stuffy on arrival, once showed to our room the lady that did the check in walked into the room and closed the curtains and apologized for the akward view of the outdoor service passages, making us feel unwelcome, closed in and not sure if we are welcome in any other guest areas other than the stuffy room.

The bedsheets were nice and clean, quality of pillows were great, and proximity to local amenities like menlyn and sun arena are really the only things that we found pleasant and convenient. There is something to work with here, but the service, communication and rooms could do with some attention and care.

Overall very disappointed in our stay and a waste of our money. Sad to see establishments lose their pride and joy in inviting guests into their 'home away from home'.

We were welcomed by a gentleman who seems to be a all rounder. He made the biggest breakfast for my husband and we really enjoyed it. The gentleman is a good asset to your guesthouse. The bed was absolutely fantastic. We enjoyed the animals, made it felt like home. The location is excellent. Good choice to stay there if you need to visit Cintocare or Menlyn Maine

There was no hot water on the Thursday morning. Had to go and visit a relative to have a hot shower. For the rest everything was fine. Breakfast was very nice. Room was spacious and very neat. Fair value for money.

I travel to Pretoria for business and are normally booked at 40 on Ilkey. The experience there always makes it feel more like holiday as being there for work. The staff became like family (those family you actually look forward to see, lol) and the relaxing and friendly atmosphere makes you forget that you are in the middle of a big city. Situated so conveniently is also a big plus on my trips.
One of the features of this guesthouse is the lovely room and comfortable beds with cushions. Rooms are always spotlessly neat. I look forward to my next visit soon and being greeted by Danel and her friendly and professional staff. Thanks for being my holiday home in the big city.

40 on Ilkey is always my first choice when staying in Pretoria, which is frequent due to the nature of my line of work.
Ilkey is restful, peaceful and homey. Here you can relax and rejuvenate when on vacation and recharge your batteries when preparing for a busy day when on business. It’s ideally located near Menlyn and the many attractions on offer in Pretoria.
When staying at Ilkey, apart from the regular amenities, things I look forward to is you will always be greeted by the aroma of fresh coffee as you walk in the door, relaxing on the veranda, looking out on the rose garden teeming with birdlife, a great night’s sleep in comfy bed, enjoying a scrumptious breakfast in the morning while chatting to Danél, the go-getter owner of the guesthouse.
What’s sets 40 on Ilkey apart from the rest, is that there are no pretences – it simply is. Quality and customer satisfaction are top priority.
