A very disappointing experience. Arrived the first night and was stuck in a very small room in the garden with a tiny bathroom which absolutely reeked from damp and/or a blocked drain. Room was dingy, bed was soft, frayed towels etc. On the second night asked to be moved and was put in a better room, but still waaay overpriced.... More

I was surprised to find this lovely quiet guesthouse in the middle of Brooklyn, Pretoria. It's close to most things, the mall is 5 minutes away, the motorway is 5-10 minutes away and you can get to the airport in less than 30 minutes. The rooms are nice and big and the staff is very friendly.

We got a miserable small room. I don't think I've slept in such a small bed since I was a pre-teen (and that was without my wife)!! The bedding is inadequate - multiple cushions and a musty throw and nowhere to put them. Venetian blinds are old and bent and inadequate to block sunlight, furniture is outdated and mismatched pieces... More

Excellent location to shopping and easy to locate from JNB airport. Clean and homely and the staff were very helpful. Great rooms, quiet, inviting, beautiful gardens, I thoroughly recommend the guest house.

Simply in terms of ambience, the Cranes Nest Guest House is one of the best experiences I have ever had. The room and the large open balcony overlooking a lush garden and pool just blew my mind! I would find any excuse to stay there again! Koos Kombuis

I stayed at Cranes Nest in Boshoff street. it was a very good experience. I visited all the Cranes Nest Guesthouses and this one is defiantly a special place close to my heart. The rooms is neat and the staff will help you when you have a problem.

I've stayed at this guest house about 8 times now. The staff are friendly and each room is decorated in its own African way, i think there are only about 8 rooms I've stayed in at least 6 now. Over the road is the bird sanctuary and the Blue Crane restaurant which are worth visiting! The guest house is situated... More

I had an amazing stay at Crane's Nest Guesthouse. It is clean and tidy and the decor is extremely beautiful. Everyone makes you feel right at ease and its the perfect home away from home. The bunnies are really adorable and there is so much peace and quiet.

I rarely check into hotels in South Africa because the standards of the South African B&Bs are so high that you don't need to. Cranes Nest has a lovely garden and a beautiful black rabbit, and the Staff were lovely people, but this place falls way short of the South African B&B Standards. The towels were tattered and old, the... More

My stay at Crane's Nest Guesthouse in Boshoff Street was one of the best decisions I have made. I was received by friendly staff and felt right at home. They went through trouble to make me comfortable and at ease at all times. My room was clean and easily accessible with everything that I needed available.
