The Castello di Monte is located on a hill in the posh Pretoria neighbourhood of Waterkloof Ridge. It is a villa in Tuscan style turned into a small hotel with less than a dozen rooms. All rooms are spacious and well equipped. Some have a fire place. Many have a private roof terrace. They have great views over the city... More

This is truly a five star establishment with staff and food to go with this. Castello di Monte is world class with the best breakfast. All the staff is genuinely friendly and helpful. It is a gorgeous place to stay in with views over Pretoria. Although it is in the city, it is a quiet and peaceful place. Do not... More

I'm thankful for the recommendation I received for the Castello as the accommodations proved to be better than expected. Yes, the guest house and it's grounds are very nice, but ultimately what sets this place apart from many other accommodations is the level of service provided by Madeline and her staff. I was only there for a relatively short time... More

I give this small hotel (9 bed rooms) a 5 star rating. However it should not be compared to the 5 star rating I gave to The Peninsula in Hong Kong. They are totally different of course. Nevertheless this is a fantastic property. It is charming, has a great staff, great food and a wonderful location. If you are passing... More

This is a very good and small hotel. The rooms are magnificent, very large and spacious. We had a bathroom the size of a superior room.... We actually had two rooms, because we travelled with our kids (ages 8 and 5). The hotel has very nice views on Pretoria, because it is situated on a hill overlooking the city and... More

This was just an overnight stay before catching the train in early morning. Everything happened smoothly. They arranged all the transport for me from airport and to railway station. The room was large and we were offered drinks on arrival.
