My husband and I stayed here for just two days on our last trip to Pretoria - enough to be very impressed. The rooms are beautiful and very tastefully designed, with an artistic flare. We've recommended this place to all our friends who travel to Pretoria on business.

What a great place to stay! Set in a quiet leafy suburb this beautiful guesthouse could not be more welcoming or friendly. The kind and helpful owners and staff are always around when you need help, but you are free to wander and use the beautiful areas in the house at your leisure.

My wife and I spent a night at this wonderful guesthouse on a recent visit to Pretoria. We cannot find fault with anything and the service and hosts were superb. I have no hesitation in recommending this facility to anyone looking for 5 star service in Pretoria!
