5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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

I have been staying at Ambiance regularly since January 2011, and I always choose to stay there over any other establishment in Pretoria. Deidre is the most charming and friendly host, along with her husband, Pieter, they go that extra mile to make sure they can accommodate your requirements .... The 4 rooms are all beautifully furnished and comfortable, each... More

5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

I have stayed in several excellent guesthouses in Hatfield and Lynwood (nr Pretoria), and Ambiance was the most expensive. However, the difference in price reflects the impeccable facilities, with every detail attended to - from a fabulous garden, to luxurious bed/living-room (with decent coffee and luxurious complimentary treats) and a wallow-for-hours bathroom. Boutique guest house is an understatement. Keep up... More

I came to find myself at Ambiance due to another guesthouse being fully booked, and I am very glad that it was. The service was impeccable, with all of the genuine courtesy of people who truly care about their guests' experience. I felt completely safe, comfortable, and well fed at Ambiance! If I come back to Pretoria I will certainly... More

Thank you for a wonderful stay!! We felt welcome from the moment we arrived, Deidre certainly goes the extra mile for her guests. We stayed in a beautiful room and we enjoyed every minute at the guest house. Excellent attention to detail! Hope to visit Ambiance Guest House in the near future!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

This was my dream guest house! The interior design was superb, especially for the price. The website boasts a refreshingly apt portrayal of each room: unlike other B&B's with misleading photographs, we didn't feel cheated when we saw our room. What struck me was everything was done with such heart - the decor, the garden and especially Deidre's interaction with... More

Three of us (self, partner and grandson) arrived at Ambiance after an overnight flight from London, expecting the rest of our party to arrive a couple of hours later, having flown from Newcastle via Paris. In fact they were 24 hours late due to plane problems. Deidre (with whom I'd had much friendly correspondence prior to our visit) and Pieter... More
