We spent a night to celebrate our anniversary. The reception was very warm and friendly. The room was spacious and tastefully decorated but unfortunately a leaking aircon caused a stuffy smell. Overall a pleasant stay.

We do apoligise for the leaky aircon. We had all our aircons serviced a week prior to your visit and this one must have escaped the technician's attention. Thank you for a wonderful review.

Visiting Pretoria, this is the place to stay, relax, unwind, listen to the birds and have a great breakfast, restaurants is not far to drive 5 minutes. Close to the city and the voortrekker monument, union buildings and church square. So much to do and see from here!

Beautiful rooms, excellent service and a great breakfast. Also a very quiet area. You may even forget you're in the city. Especially liked the shower and the aircon. Will definitely stay here again if I'm in the area.

Wonderful overall stay. Friendly people with excellent service. The guesthouse is surrounded by beautiful Jacaranda trees full bird life. During the day you can hear the call of the "grey-loerie and piet mevrou" Breakfast is tasty and well prepared. We have already booked our next stay. Regards

Great...... Located in a nice area. Great breakfasts. Rooms are very neat and well appointed with air-conditioning. Not so good...... Limited off street parking. All the lovely amenities as beautifully described on the website (bar, wines, sauna, Lapa, etc) are slightly overstated, are actually shared with the host family, and the use thereof did not appear to be encouraged.

Thank you so much for the positive points you have made regarding our facility. I am, however, very sorry that you felt that you could not use our lovely amenities. We actually encourage the use of these facilities and although shared with the host family, we rarely use it and if requested by the guests, will certainly not refrain them...
