Our first trip to South Africa, and we started with this delightful property that did more than impress. The decor is amazing, the views stunnintg and all the amenities very impressive. This was our first hotel prior to taking the famous Rovos Train to Cape Town. We would like to thank the owners and the wonderful staff. Please don't hesitate... More

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.

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.

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
