This is an ideally placed establishment; close to highways, restaurants, entertainment & shopping complexes yet secluded, quiet & peaceful. Beautiful gardens & rooms. We found the meals generous, attractively presented with options to suit all tastes. Our stay was most enjoyable.

Great and relaxing accommodation in Pretoria. Will stay there every time I can. The beds are comfortable, relaxing atmosphere with the best omelette I had in a long time. Do yourself a favour and stay at this bed and breakfast when you are in or around Pretoria.

Friendly hosts, elegant decor, beautiful gardens and the family rooms are well equipped with everything a family could need away from home. The daily stock of fresh dairy and treats is something to look forward to. Top class!

“So far I have only stayed in two of the four rooms and although each are different, they are always kept to the same standard. So far my favorite room is the French room which has a kind sized bed and looks out over the pool area.”
