The guesthouse is comfortable, clean and very well located in Pretoria. I really enjoyed my stay and thank Glen Marion Guesthouse for the great service. I would recommend it to anyone looking to do business in Pretoria East in particular.

Glen Marion Guest House at 257 Annette Van Zyl Street is one of the modern guest houses I have stayed. To me, it is more of a hotel than a guest house base on my assessment of the facilities in the rooms. It is very modern and the work and the furnishings are excellent. Throughout my five nights' stay, I... More

We stayed at the guest house for 2 weeks and I will recommend it to anyone. The staff are very friendly and helpful and they were excellent with our 2 year old daughter.

Our hosts Billy and Poppy went out of their way to make sure our stay was comfortable. Our first floor room was small but modern and spotless and the bed was huge and so very comfortable. A good sized bathroom and lovely (always hot) shower was very welcome. Breakfast was the best we have had at any guest house and... More

Pretoria, the capital of South Africa, covers a vast area. From the park-like east Pretoria location to actual town centre are close to 20 kms. But still it is urban Pretoria we are talking about. Glen Marion is a large mansion on a large plot, with some garden left, but mostly covered by the housing and a large swimming pool.... More

Wonderful friendly service. Comfortable rooms and 5 star breakfast. Close to Mall and Hospital. Also a very safe area. Lovely garden. Guests are welcomed at the gate already and made at home in no time. Well worth a visit.

The house is a beauty. It is located on a quiet street but with solid security system. The room is clean and spacious. The bed is so comfortable that you won't want to leave it in the morning ( not good for travellers :P ) The owners are friendly and service is great. Highly recommended.
