The staff tried their best but cramped rooms and public areas, unheated bathrooms, and semi functional Wifi made for a barely satisfactory stay. The place has potential but is in need of refurbishment. One gets the feeling that the owners have tried to squeeze too much out of what they have and as a result everyone gets something less than...

Quiet place in green environment near center of Pretoria, at walking distance from embassies, restaurants and shopping mall, relaxed, very friendly and efficient service delivery. WiFi not always giving strong signal in Malachite room where I staid.

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 Venetian blinds are old and bent and inadequate to block sunlight, furniture is outdated and mismatched pieces...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.
