Central location, beautiful setting, attention to detail... We have stayed at Ambience on various occasions and every visit was just perfect. The guest rooms cater to every need that a family could possibly have, lots of interesting snacks, enough space, child friendly and so elegant at the same time. I love visiting with the owners Deidre and Pieter and I... More

This review is long over due! My apologies to Deidre. I would not stay any where else in Pretoria. Deirdre went out of her way to make our stay comfortable for my family. Even by moving another guest. My children were treated to delicious woollies ice cream in sugar cones on a hot summers day. Given swimming towels so they... More

I am coming to the guest house frequently while beeing on business trips (since 2011). Though beeing small, the service is excellent and individual according to your needs. Good price for very good service. It is very clean with a friendly welcoming atmosphere. In the rooms you will find tea, coffee, some little things to eat and the fridge is... More

Ambiance Guesthouse is my number 1 choice when on business in Pretoria. Deidre gives attention to every little detail and knows her guests. The rooms are exquisite and the breakfast is something that you have to include in your stay. Anyone who stays here will not be disappointed.

The moment you enter the property at Ambiance Guesthouse you are, for a few moments, at loss for words... the most serene view welcomes you: a scene as if you've entered a little French corner somewhere far from here. Deidre has a special talent for giving attention to every little detail: crisp linen, super soft towels, soaps and creams galore,... More

I had a great time with the wonderful people of Ambiance. If you are on training or need to stay in Pretoria, this guest house is the place for you, quiet, safe neighbourhood yet close to everything. Beautiful room, and if you have time for breakfast make sure to have it included in your stay. Five star breakfast!

We spent a week, partly for business and partly leisure. The rooms are private and well equipped with a French theme. Parking was safe and under cover. Convenient for local shopping malls, embassies and access to main arterial routes. The breakfast is a special highlight - really excellent - weekdays only. One experiences the personal touch of the owner and... More

I can fully recommend Ambiance Guest House. Deidre is extremely accommodating and her lovely touches and unexpected extras in the rooms are very much appreciated. The rooms are of a high standard, well serviced each day and extremely comfortable. Deidre's breakfasts in the main house are also recommended and great value. I would not want to stay anywhere else.

Ambiance GH is an absolute gem and it is my home away from home. I frequently stay there on business trips. I love the feel of the place, the comfort, the charming owners and the self catering option. I am almost loathe to write this review as recently I have not been able to stay here due to Deidre being... More

I have being staying at Ambiance Guest House now for more than 6 years while on business in Pretoria. That in itself is already a very good recommendation for any new visitors. The tranquil setting, excellent service and very high standard of the facilities just make it impossible to look for another quest house. Andre Roux, Kuilsrivier, South Africa
