Our tour operator booked this hotel for a one night stay before catching the blue train to Cape Town.

Wonderful Italian style hotel in Waterkloof area of Pretoria with splendid views. There is even a roof top with 360 view food is good and wifi works well. Rooms are comfortable although not all have baths. Wifi works well. Pretoria beautiful at this time of the year with the Jacarandas in full bloom

We spent 3 weeks on honeymoon around Southern Africa and spent a night at Castello. The building is lovely and the honeymoon suite was fantastic with bath & jacuzzi. The staff made us feel at home with a fantastic dinner and champagne & rose pedals in the room.

Luxury home turned into "small" hotel. Was absolutely gorgeous. Had huge room in building that was originally to be an office. All floors were heated. Had doors that opened out to patio. Food was wonderful, best meal we had in almost 3 week journey. Lovely views. Highly recommend.

Our travel agent booked Castello di Monte for one night before we took the Blue Train to Cape Town. The hotel is in a residential neighborhood and was built as a private residence, the owners later added 3 rooms to make a 9 room hotel. When we checked in we were hugely disappointed to only stay one night. The hotel... More

An absolute oasis. This was a great transition during our SA trip. From the bush to a place where all your wishes and whims are treated well. The staff was great and the restaurant superb. The location is not perfect, but the car service is great. We loved it.

Excellent amenities, tastefully decorated, and great customer service. The surrounding is safe, family friendly and situated in a plush neighborhood. The meals offered were delicious. I would definitely return to this first rate hotel.
