We stayed at the Meintjieskop Guest Lodge for one night in June. The property is located in a very beautiful and safe neighbourhood in Pretoria. The presidential palace is located right across the road and because of that, the property is not subject to power outages due to load shedding. The rooms themselves (we saw two of them) are very...

I stayed at the guest house on the night of the 9th June 2015. I have stayed in several guest houses in Pretoria, but this one is the best. The owners are very welcoming, friendly and will make sure that all your needs are catered for. The food, the rooms and the hospitality was all excellent. To the owners keep... More

Amazing hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. They looked after us like we were their own. Great setting and in a lovely part of town. Cute shopping centre just down the road and Hatfield Mall is easy walking distance. We went for the rugby and Loftus was just at the bottom of the hill. Great value for $$.

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
