My wife and I stayed at The Elegant Lodge for 4 consecutive days when we were last there. Yes, a bit noisy at times being right on the main road. The staff, albeit a small compliment that we dealt with, from check in to service staff were all extremely friendly and well versed in their respective areas of service. Rooms... More

We stayed overnight with my daughters and I was very impressed with the room and the gardens are immaculately kept. We had a super breakfast in the morning before leaving. The staff were very efficient and I was so impressed when I received a phone call after we had left to say we had left my daughter's pyjamas behind. We... More

The location is convenient, but noisy, being right on Atterbury Road. The rooms are big, clean and comfortable. The staff really aim to please. The only problem is the slowness of the kitchen. Don't order hot breakfast unless you have a lot of time to wait. And dinner is overpriced and not very nice - rather go to one of... More

I stay at the Elegant Lodge, on average, about once a month since I have many business trips that bring me to Pretoria. The rooms are always spotlessly clean and the service is the best I have experienced as a regular business traveler. The staff go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need. I often... More

We were given the Hippo bedroom, described as a garden room. It overlooked a narrow garden but was on the 1st floor and about 2 metres from a very busy street. The aircon was either on or off: the actual controls were too high for us to reach to alter. Opening the window made it too noisy. The room was... More

Although the entrance to Elegant Lodge is from the very busy and dangerous (because the cars race at breakneck speed along the boulevard), this is the only negative point about the establishment that one may note. Most of the rooms are rather large when compared to other hotel rooms and give a sense of comfort. When in Pretoria, I return... More

Value for money for very short trip or night stay traveler. Good ambiance of the hotel area. Room cleanliness was upto mark. Breakfast varieties were though less in quantity but for the value it's good. Reception staff was quite courteous and jolly which i feel is good gesture.

This lodge is based in a residential area along the busy Atterberry street. It is a quiet area. The lodge is small with a combined dinner hall, bar and reception area. A conference is adjacent to this area. The rooms are animal kingdom named especially mammals. The room is just a ordinary room of average size. This renders it to... More
