A beautiful colonial style house opposite the golf course. The rooms are comfortable and have a favourable amount of privacy to unwind without worry. There is plenty of reading material to page through should you decide to stay in during your stay.

This is the second time we have stayed at Edward House because it was so lovely the first time. It is a place where you get a feel of colonial living in the city. Jen and John have a great eye for detail and know a lot about the history of South Africa. The rooms are charmingly themed and decorated... More

Edward House is warm in all senses of the word - John and Jennifer are wonderful, welcoming hosts, and their home is a cozy spot from which to enjoy and explore Pretoria - or just to curl up on chilly winter nights.

Beautifully maintained and managed bnb. Absolute gem of a find, stayed for 3 nights and would've quite happily stayed longer. Rooms are spacious and luxurious, the little touches like the bath salts, stocked bookcase, bathrobes and thick luxury linen sets this beautiful guesthouse apart from the rest. Our hosts were friendly and we really enjoyed having long conversations with them.... More

Attention to detail is superb. The rooms and bathrooms are impeccable and the breakfasts are fresh and tasty. Edward House is one of the 'best value for your money' guesthouses to be found in the Pretoria area.

I have used this B&B several times before and each time is really excellent. Jenny and John take good care of you; the rooms are large and well appointed, the garden beautiful and the breakfasts all you need. Nice location if you need to be on the east side of Pretoria.

If you prefer elegance,luxury ,fresh flowers in the room and attention to detail...Edward House is the place to be...not to mention home-cooked meals and warm hospitality...Edward House is a lovely, old double-storey house with wooden floors and symbolizes the grandeur of the past.We enjoyed our stay in the spacious "Smuts "room and appreciated the luxurious bedding.
