Stayed in little room at back of property. Freezing cold and felt very vulnerable in terms of security. Manager/owner? Extremely rude and unhelpful. Could not get internet connection. Staff did try but are so overworked and abused

The price of R590 bed and breakfast for single occupancy is by far the best value you can receive for your money.Real home away from home. The hot water bottle in your bed is a real plus for the cold evenings in winter.24 hour staff on duty let you feel safe and the remote control gates is even a good... More

This place is over priced and the service is really poor. The service is far from what other guest houses in pretoria offer. We have stayed before in Kareebloem Guesthouse (similar price, nearby) so much better, like day and night. Do not stay in Crane's Nest. Not worth it.

I told my husband we have trouble coming and shortly afterwards we received payment confirmation that the money for... More

Be advised there are 2 guest houses related to the Crane's Nest properties in Pretoria. Although they are fairly close in distance they are considerably further apart in atmosphere. When we arrived we were told we had been moved to the charmless Charles Street location. Our room was very large, but had a tiny and very noisy bathroom. The toilet... More
