Really well located and very friendly hosts in Mercia and Willem. This is an older place but charming and being able to mix with other guests at breakfast and in the common area made for a very pleasant stay. It is fairly close to the Union Buildings and there is a Cafe 41 within walking distance. Again it is a... More

Nice owner rooms need to be redone, overall the maintenance is lacking and the buildings pool and rooms are needing some TLC, owner friendly and breakfast was ok. Don't walk anywhere in the dark but I guess that's for all of Pretoria overall rating 3 stars.

We arrived in Pretoria in June enroute to a safari trip in southern Africa. Our bags had been lost in a huge computer malfunction in Heathrow. BA was in chaos. We had 3 days with Mercia and Willem and they did all they could do help us while providing comfortable and restorative accommodation. Mercia in particular really helped us by... More

We are a retired French couple from Canada (Montreal) and traveled South Africa during 2 months renting 31 different lodgings. This one was # 2. This is a very beautiful house with pool and enjoyable common areas. We had a room in the extension beside the house called ‘’Colonial’’. Superb!! Excellent bathroom, comfortable big bed. No AC but the ceiling... More

This place definitely deserves it's rating of 9.2. Situated in the Eastwood district of Pretoria, just 600 metres east of the Union Buildings and just up the hill from Cafe41, which I have also reviewed. The greeting was warm and friendly, the room was clean and bright, we stayed in Colonial 2, there was even a small fridge in the... More

I was overwhelemed by the freindlyness of the owners. I am vegan and Merci cooked the first time in her life vegan. It was so well done! Great - I was positively overwhelmed and when I come back to Pretoria I will exchange vegan food idas with Merci. Willem did everything to make me feel comfortable and every morning I... More

The Guest House is run by a couple of South Africans: Merci and Willem. They are lovely people, open minded, discrete and very warm. The location is a few hundred meters from the Union Building, in a quiet and safe residential area. The rooms are surprisingly spacious and comfortable, with a very natural vintage style. Very large beds. Garden and... More

A lovely spacious room with a balcony overlooking the pool, very thoughtful and friendly hosts who show the best of Afrikaaner hospitality. They make you feel like a guest in their home and not just customers. The proximity to the centre of town makes it very conveniently located. The most impressive thing is the beautiful wooden floored bathroom with a... More

My parents stayed here while visiting me in Pretoria. They raved about Mercia and Willem Steenkamp's excellent service, especially the fabulous breakfasts. The guesthouse is ideally located, within walking distance to the Union Buildings, Hatfield and the embassies, in a beautiful, safe part of town. The building itself is beautifully furnished with a pool and lots of space to lounge... More

Willem and Marcia Steenkamp and family are superb hosts! Even though we spent just one night, they were welcoming, made a great dinner, and their son drove us to the station next day. If you want to learn how an Afrikaaner family has adapted to the inevitable changes in S. Africa, they are thoughtful, and interesting people. Plus, we loved... More
