Thank you very much for such a wonderful experience. When we entered the magnificent entrance, we knew that we were in for a treat. We were greeted with juice and shown to our room in person. We are not quite sure why, but we were given the Presidential Suite! It was truly the grandest room we have ever stayed in.... More

Castello di Monte is truely a beatufiul and tranquil property. The rooms are very well appointed high up on the high, you have the best views 360degrees from various terraces and balconies. Sunset is so pretty, food is wonderful and service is great!

We had one night here as part of our Blue Train trip. It was strange as it was our first night in South Africa and it was as though we were in Italy. Accommodation is superb and the staff provide excellent service. This place is a photographer's dream with excellent nooks and crannies that are worthy of photographing and would... More

Positioned on a hillside in residential Pretoria with wonderful views, this is an excellent guest house. The decor in the main hotel may be a little too faux Italian but the rooms are first class. Very spacious, great terraces, comfy beds and well appointed bathrooms. The space is accentuated by high ceilings. Good staff and reasonably priced. The hotel only... More

We stayed in this superb italian palazzo just only one night, before we go to the safari in Madikwe. It's an excellent choice of our agent, beautiful view, luxury rooms, good breakfast and dinner, quick arrangements for a Soweto tour and so on. It is located on a hilly and fine neighborhood of Pretoria and has parking facilities. Di Monte... More

This is a wonderful venue, not just the rooms but also the kitchen, the relaxed atmosphere and the hospitality. You are very unlikely to have a bad experience here. Great for couples for some time away, great for stays in Pretoria area for any purpose (as long as you have a car to get around).
