The owners of this b and b deserve all the accolades they receive - charming hosts, who made my son most welcome when he pitched up early, during breakfast, to collect me on the morning of my departure and who then ended up staying for over an hour chatting to Ron and Marilyn, as well as having breakfast 'on the...

The hosts were very welcoming on arrival, the room was spacious enough and the whole deal just made us feel at home. We arrived on a rainy Friday afternoon to find this small but well looked after accommodation, the hosts helped us to locate some fine restaurant around, cheerful hosts they were indeed!

Many others have written that staying at Cherry Tree Cottage is like a home away from home and that is completely true. Ron and Marelyn are wonderful, helpful, and all around great hosts. This was a solo holiday for me and I felt completely safe. Marelyn gave me the best sightseeing advice and it was one of the best holidays... More

I spent three weeks in Cherry Tree B&B and the quality of the property influences the general well-being on a journey, of course. The Cherry Tree Cottage B&B is definitely highly recommended. The rooms were clean and the breakfast was rich and there were lots of varieties. The hosts and the staff are friendly and courteous. Especially the hosts were... More

We found the owners very friendly and helpful and enjoyed our stay. The breakfast was excellent and we can fully recommend Cherry Tree Cottage. The location is very good for visiting Pretoria and major shopping centres.

I had a very short stay in what I can call a real Africa Home. It is the very best Bed and Breakfast I have been to with lovely and Natural Serene Atmosphere.
