Absolutely spectacular place to stay over. I stayed there the night before my wedding and me and my hubby after the wedding in the honeymoon suite. Beautiful view of the Pretoria area, friendly and courteous staff. Would recommend it to anybody!

This place is class, in a great position, amongst the diplomatic missions. Big sized bedroom and bathroom to match, very comfortable bed. The dining experience was great, both service and food. The staff were attentive and made time to chat. Lunch at the top of the villa on a sunny day with all round vision of Pretoria topped off a... More

People always comment on new development in JHB but they forget Pretoria. With a 360' view of Pretoria and excellent serivice. Castello di Monte has the best to offer. they were accomodating on short notice and helped giving us unforgetable memory.

I stayed here for 2 nights in June with a group of friends. The hotel is in a quiet street surrounded by similar-sized mansions. It was originally built as a private residence and I kept trying to imagine what it would be like to have it as your family home. It is a beautiful building. We were warmly welcomed with... More

The Italian style of the hotel attracted me, the service was perfect, the room size was huge (especially the bathroom), Only the room I had was a bit dark. The Location was good. A very attractive price for such an excellent hotel.
