Lovely place and owners! Will be back soon! Relaxing atmosphere. Can recommend this spot to anyone. Immaculate gardens and interiors to rooms. Our unit had a lovely spa bath which we enjoyed thoroughly. Waiters and managers went out of their way to make our stay pleasant.

I cannot recommend Opikopi Guesthouse enough! I was a solo traveler and felt so welcome, safe and spoiled!! Opikopi is the to-go establishment when staying in Pretoria. Wonderful rooms, beautiful facilities, great breakfast and dinners, and the most amazing staff. From Helen, Corneille, Christelle, Sunnyboy and Bongoni- all were always more than willing to walk the extra mile. Thank you...

Not my first time here. As always an excellent stay, with friendly staff and a great breakfast The only downside was the extremely slow internet connection, which prevented me from logging onto several websites.

My husband and I stayed the night there as we had a wedding to attend to so we did not want to be driving back to JNB late at night. Our reception was unwelcoming even though the porter was very pleasant. The room was comfortable enough even though the walls could do with a good clean or a coat of...

WOW ! Wonderful spacious rooms and excellent service! I loved the sherry canter at the entrance to my room as I enjoyed having a sherry before the evening meals and bedtime.

I really cannot fault anything. The staff were excellent, if I remember correctly Sonnyboy and Bongani (not sure about the names) assisted us. Great customer service. The evening meal was just as good.

we just stayed one night, but found a well organized high profile hotel to stay in Pretoria. The service was excellent and the rooms were spacious, well equipped and nice. The kids enjoyed the pool while we as parents were enjoying the sun in a sunchair and the excellent food in the restaurant.

If you need to overnight in Pretoria near the Kloof hospital, the Opikopi guesthouse is a excellent choice! Only 3.3 km from the Kloof Hospital, and 2 km from the N1. The security,service and food were outstanding. Well done!
