We stayed for two nights and can highly recommend the guest house for business or personal stay. The rooms are very clean and modern. Wholesome hearty breakfast are great too. Location is in lovely suburb of Pretoria and close to malls an restaurants.

Thanks for the great review! Our location in Waterkloof, one of the upmarket suburbs in Pretoria, one short block away from the Waterkloof Centre with a convenience store, 4 places to dine, a hairdresser, flower shop and many more shopping options is a bonus. I am glad you liked our rooms and service :-) More

A pleasant guest house with a few niggles. Sound carries between the rooms which can disturb your sleep, the squeaky bathroom doors sound is also disturbing. Some rooms back onto the car park which is not pleasant

Seeing as we both travel with our notebooks, we always have concern about the workspace we would get with our stay. Well at Cascades we were given the most gorgeous accommodation. We had ample space to work with a beautiful garden setting outside. Even a running fountain and swimming pool. Coupled with freshly cut fruit with breakfast, they are now... More

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at the Cascades. We stayed in one of the self-catering apartments for 2 weeks and it was exactly what we needed for our longer trip. The rooms were spacious and well appointed. The grounds were lovely and the staff were fantastic. I will surely stay here again and recommend that my friends... More

Very clean and calming place close to Pretoria. Host is very friendly and goes out of his way to fulfill requests, including delivering hotel umbrellas to guests in a thunder and lightening storm. Tables outside are in the middle of a lush garden with the sounds of water falling into the ponds providing a great place to work between meetings.

John the proprietor and his team are excellent caring hosts. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The property is tidy, and they server a very homely breakfast. Well located in Pretoria! What more can one ask for.

Over the six or so years we have been staying at Cascades when in Pretoria, the guest house has maintained a high standard and has remained consistently good value for money. Situated a stone's throw from Brooklyn Mall and close to the upmarket residential areas of Waterkloof it is ideally located. An added bonus if visiting in October is that... More

Great gardens. Nice room. Try get a room with a view of the garden (and the courtyard with the pond). Internet was not always reliable and strong enough for Skype meetings; this was a problem for us. Staff were friendly and helpful. Nice and quiet. Walking distance to get to a small mall with restaurants, pharmacy and convenience store.

Thank you for the great review! Our beautiful garden in this central, but quiet area is our joy - at the moment the weather is overcast and everything is lush and green... I am also challenged by our internet speed and reliability at times, one of the quirks of living in Africa, it seems to be better at the moment.... More

We stayed for 1 night and had a great experience as our flight was delayed and the guesthouse reception checked us in at 11h30 pm. My husband was not feeling well and wanted some tea late the evening. With a jug of rusks in our room we felt right at home. Thank you friendly service.

This guesthouse is conveniently located, in a safe area close to a small mall (few minutes walk) and the larger Brooklyn mall. The rooms vary a lot and it might therefore be useful to be familiar with the construction of the guest house.. There are three buildings, each with a very different conception and garden. The first is on your... More

Dear IaraBrussels! Reading your detailed review was a delight. We are no longer able to be objective to our own space since we have had this Guesthouse for 13 years. Since inception in 2001, it has grown into the 14 rooms we have now. Which means we really appreciate the time and effort you took to describe each room from... More
