After the rave reviews on tripadvisor we did expect a lot of our stay in Bohemian House. And it was even better than expected. The decor of the entire place is stunning. We had a choice of a large room on the groundfloor or a rather small room upstairs. Because of the wonderful view we took the small one. Since... More

We stayed in this interesting guest house overnight while in Pretoria getting travel visas for a family holiday. Right from the onset when we were welcomed by Alta and Johan we knew we had chosen the right place to stay! The welcome was warm and friendly, the rooms comfortable and well equipped and the breakfast superb! The location of the... More

We stayed over at this stunning guest house, filled with very exquisite works of art and furniture. The gardens are magnificent and the bird songs, add to the beauty of it all. The breakfast was divine and the highlight was a grey Go-away-bird (Lourie) , also enjoying his breakfast at the bird feeder, right next to us! Thank you to... More

This week we stayed in the Bohemian House for the second time. We had great memories from our first stay (that's why we came back), but now it was even better.

Usually I do not enjoy staying at B&B's due to the fact that it often feels like you're invading someone else's space. Therefore I prefer staying in hotels and enjoy the anonymity. With Bohemian House though, I've made an exceptions: it somehow has the right balance between feeling personal and friendly, plus offering the benefits of a small hotel to... More

One of my employees set up the reservation for a co-worker and I for our business trip. We arrived on Monday and stayed only one night. We both wished we would have arrived on a Sunday to get settled in instead of traveling Monday morning for our couple of day business trip. The facilities are beautiful, charming, and quaint. I...

I have stayed at this excellent guest house in Waterkloof Ridge many times over the past four years. The individualised rooms, food and service are world class. It is geared towards business travellers, many of whom are from overseas. The facilities include a boardroom with a table that can comfortably seat 10 people, perhaps more. The dinner, by prior arrangement... More
