We booked rooms with city views from the balconies for one night in February 2016. Beautiful location in a lovely upmarket suburb on the hill in Groenkloof. Small quiet boutique hotel with spacious rooms and comfy beds. Great lunch served by the hotel restaurant. Peaceful courtyard area with pool. Great service from all the staff, who were all extremely friendly...... More

Our family visit to Pretoria was enhanced by our stay at 131. The staff are friendly and the rooms are well appointed. It's biggest plus is the location - with great views over the city and a relaxed residential area. We will stay there again on our next visit.

Great location and lovely rooms high on a hill overlooking Pretoria and even the Union Buildings. Rooms have balconies which is an extra bonus. Check in was a breeze. Large room and modern bathroom. Very quiet neighbourhood which is such a bonus.

We stayed at 131 on Herbert Baker just for one night before getting on the Rovos Rail the next morning and we wished that we could have stayed longer then it is really nice. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the room is spacious and beautiful, the bed was very comfortable and we enjoyed the use of fleecy bathrobes... More

Beautiful Setting and what a wonderful Visit. I set up my Piano outside where a Wedding Ceremony was held. Nothing was too much for the Staff, and they went out of their way to accommodate me. Dinner was absolutely awesome, and where I sat next to the Pool area, I enjoyed the spectacular surroundings, which you don't even expect when... More

The best and most charming hotel (converted expensive mansion) we stayed in during our 3 week trip to S. Africa travelling between Kruger Park in the North and the Garden route and Cape Town in the south.

This is a small hotel but has a very high standard of comfort in the rooms. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. The food is well presented and tasty. Victoria's cooking is special. If we go to Pretoria again we shall go back here.
