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.

Dear Marjo, what a nice surprise to receive your review after your stay with us, and thank you so much for the more than positive comments. I totally see the sense in an extra-sized towel of course, also being Winter, however, just to avoid misconception by other prospective guests, our towels are standard sized, and each guest is issued with...

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. I immediately got the details of the replacement host, and she wished us all the best. After arriving... More

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
