Safe and Secure Stay with big enough parking for our trailer. Host friendly and helpful. Location good for what we need for Doctors appointments in Roslyn. Do not like the idea of sharing the same table with other guest while having breakfast one or two smaller tables will be nice.

I had the best stay here. Behind those walls, it's like a home away from home. The hosts ever do friendly. Gerhard, Elsabe and Erna, always brings a smile and laughter to everyone with kind remarks and jokes during dinner and breakfast. Erna makes the best veg omelette I had ever!!

I have stayed at El Gran Chapparal many, many times. It is the only B&B I will stay at when in Pretoria. The owners and daughter are extremely accommodating and ensure your stay is always pleasant. The rooms are always spotless and food is tasty. I call it my home away from home....

What a pleasure to have stayed at El Gran Chapparel! It was our 22nd Wedding Anniversary, and we were spoilt rotten by Elsabe and Erna. First of all Rose petals, chocolates, candles and Champagne awaited us on our arrival. We felt so special! Then we were treated to a beautiful appetizer with breakfast, and to our surprize we were treated to a Champagne breakfast to seal the deal on our Anniversary! Not even on our real Honeymoon 22 years ago did we have such special touches...

Thank you so much for making our stay VERY memorable! We will definitely be back often.
