It is always wonderful to see my old clients coming back to the guest house. Hopefully that means that they were satisfied with our services on the previous times. We always try to create new recipes in the kitchen and I must admit that our apple strudel is absolutely magnificent. Hopefully then you visit again we can offer you a... More

This 5-star place is spacious and very stylish in a modern Afrikaner/African design. The rooms are big and luxuriously set out, the spaces between them including the central pool/bar/dining room area are quirky and interesting. Helen de Beer runs OpiKopi in a charming, friendly hands-on way that works really well. It's telling that the staff each have a short bio... More

I wouldn't let it know in the public openly, because of, I would like to keep it as my comfortable hideout. Usually, I have been no breakfast worker, but, it was looked gorgeous, and collection of Pinotage in the bar was satisfied. Please enjoy to stay in this guesthouse.

We've stayed at many guesthouses and hostels and this is by far the best. The neighbourhood is quiet and safe. From the property you have an excellent view over Pretoria, nice sunsets! Then, the staff was very friendly and helpful. When I was relaxing at the pool they came to ask me many times if I wanted to drink something.... More

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.

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.
