This was the best value for money at a guest house in a very long time. The service was really outstanding, the rooms beautiful and so much attention to detail. The food was really delicious. Well done guys. We will be regulars from now on.

Thank you for your comment Elsie, We did a major revamp of the parking as well as the gardens. I must say that the finished product is looking spectacular. Their is no more parking problems and the garden with the 150 Deloitte and Thusse rosses and 80 floriebunda roses is going to be wonderful sight to see in the future.... More

Beautiful property and conveniently located. Rooms are beautifully decorated. Breakfast was very nice, nothing spectacular but everything was fresh. Staff was very friendly and willing to help. We had a problem with our room door as the lock would not open after locking it. The manager on duty sorted it out for us and was kind enough not to charge... More

The stay was welcoming, friendly and with very luxurious accommodation. The supper and breakfast was very good and tasty. I received friendly and helpful service and the scenic view from my room was beautiful. I first just battled to find the guesthouse because of Gariep and Verdi streets becoming one.

From the staff to the food everything was just about perfect. We are sorry we could only stay 2 days. To write a 200 charcter review is about as madening as It can get. If the stay was not as good as it was I would have quit right here. If you can say it good enough in 100 chracters... More

We had a really good nights sleep, after a delicious supper. Staff friendly and accommodating!! Two friends and I had also enjoyed lunch in the garden, which was most enjoyable in such a tranquil setting. The only challenge I can think of would be the parking, so if possible park with a plan to leave.

We have been staying at Opikopi since 2005. We were booked for the planned delivery date of our son but he decided to surprise us early. Helen and Peter went out of their way to accommodate us. They made room for us in their home. Our family prefer to stay at Opikopi because it is our home away from home.... More

Staying at Opikopi Guest House was a delightful experience for the wife and I and we will definitely be back. The service was second to none and even though this was a business trip we will bring the kids with next time around!

We make use of Opikopi Guest house on a regular basis and can honestly say that this is one of the best Guest Houses we have stayed in while visiting in Pretoria.

I hosted a kitchen tea for my daughter in the conference centre at Opikopi Guest House in Pretoria on the 23rd of Aug 2014. The staff assisted me in a friendly, helpful and professional manner.
