Wonderful Host

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 Aug 2018
We visited Tuesday evening and left Thursday. The strength of this establishment is certainly the helpful host. We were made to feel most welcome and the home cooking of a traditional South African meal was really appreciated. Had a ground floor room next to the main building which was adequate. Local area is well kept, feels safe and there is a secure gate. Pool way too cold for me to swim in (and I enjoy an occasional summer dip in the North Sea).

The very first thing that touched my heart was the love and warm welcome we received from the owners (couple). They are loving people. I loved the rooms and their food was perfect. The site of the pool when you are in the dinning room is just relaxing. A very quiet place, even though I went on business I think it's best for family.

Room tip: All rooms a favorable

I was greeted like a returning customer with huge warmth and nothing was too much trouble. Advice on places to go and see in SA and the property is only 600 metres from Union Buildings. It’s in a Classy suburb with free parking on site . 2 course Dinner with wine and a beer was £15 approx and I sat with a lovely couple from Holland.
Great breakfast hot and cold. The house is over 100 years old with nice large bedrooms and bathrooms. Clean and comfy and great bedding. Fridge with cold water in room and tea and coffee. Home from home and free WiFi.
If I’m in Pretoria I’ll be booking in again . Thankyou.

We had just one night here in January prior to catching a train to Cape Town. Prior to arrival, we had excellent email communication with the owners who arranged a taxi for us from the airport (in fact the owner picked us up himself). They then arranged someone next day to show us the main sites of Pretoria prior to dropping us at the Rovos Rail station. We also had an evening meal at the guest house. We were the only people booked in that night and the owners spent a lot of time talking to us which was very interesting. The house itself is a little dated decor wise but it had all we needed and there is a pool and nice gardens. It is located in a great area opposite the Presidential Palace and surrounded by a few embassies. The owner even took the time when we arrived to walk us down to see the Union Buildings. Certainly recommended.

Were delighted with our choice of guest house for 2 days in Pretoria before heading off on Rovos rail. Our room was lovely with large bathroom and free wifi. Very peaceful, safe location in the embassy district with tranquil garden and pool area with free secure parking on site.
Ate in our first night as were too tired to head out, but the meal was so delicious opted to eat in the following night too! Superb home cooking. No drinks licence but wine is available with dinner. All really good value. Run by a very hospitable couple Willem and Mercia who helped us with cab transfers and were excellent hosts. We really enjoyed our stay with them and would happily return.
