We were beyond pleased with Ambiance Guest House. We were in Pretoria for my husband's surgery, therefore a very stressful time. Deidré could not have been more caring and delightful. We have stayed in many South African guest houses and many are top notch - Ambiance goes one step further in anticipating the needs of their guests in every special... More

We recently stayed at Ambiance Guest House for four days. Our room was beautifully decorated, private, clean, and stocked with everything we could possibly need. The area is very safe and quiet (with safe parking), which is exactly what we wanted after our long flight from the United States. The owners are also very friendly and accommodating. Would definitely recommend... More

I stayed here for 2 nights recently. What a gem. The place is beautiful and every single comfort is cared for (although I would have loved a bigger bath towel!). The hostess is a lovely and kind lady who looked after me excellently! Highly recommended.

After booking this accommodation online, I received a thank you from the owner, a very kind woman. She asked for the reasons of our stay etc, and excuses herself because she would be overseas at the moment we were gonna stay there.
