I felt very safe at this premises and the free lifts we got)specially at night) were the highlight of my stay
The room itself is standard, very comfortable.
The breakfast was anticipated for us since we were leaving before breakfast time so I can say that the staff were very helpful and friendly!

Highly recommended!

The venue is gorgeous. I attended private function there they went out of their way to accommodate the specific needs of the function. The venue big inside and out they accommodated a marquee with over 100 people at the back.
The bedrooms are elegantly decorated with a minimalistic decor themed around attractions in Pretoria. The room sizes are extremely generous and well manicured. Each room has air conditioning which is a must in Pretoria as it gets too hot.
I would recommend the guest house for private and business visitors. It's cosy yet quite big.

We asked for twin beds and ended up with a queen bed, there was no hot water and the staff was dressed in pajamas when we arrived around 19:00 and not very helpful. For what we payed it really was not value for money I will not recommend this guesthouse..

After visiting this establishment for a meeting, I am thoroughly impressed with the service and neatness. A guest house ownered by a budding entrepreneur which does not leave one wanting.

Our meeting was help in their cozy, outdoor conference facility. It was a small room, but it managed to accommodate all our guests. We went on to be served late lunch, before which the room was reset back into restaurant style. The lunch was heartily prepared and super tasty, it actually made me miss a home cooked, Sunday meal.

We went on to enjoy their cozy bar area, which had homey, modern furniture, great service and most importantly, great coffee.

I am certainly looking forward to using more of their facilities on my next visit. A well deserved 4 stars.

As I said, the atmosphere is exhilarating and the rugby World Cup opener is not disappointing at all. The one good thing you should try it eh Madlamini Cuisine Special. It's not an everyday event but when you in Pretoria try to check events at the guesthouse. You will never regret.
