I have stayed there more times than I care to remember - still the best value for money and situated less than 5 minutes from Menlyn and Lynwood Bridge - Some very good places to eat out and very close to teh N1 Highway - Highly recommended

We couldn't stay for breakfast, but the chef was very friendly and accommodating to us while we were waiting for the bill. Great place if you are looking for... More

Danel and Johan are such great hosts who welcome you as if you were staying at their own home and are a long time friend. Facilities are very good and everything that you may need on business or leisure. Also the proximity to Menlyn. The setting is great and the bird life and the gardens are exceptional. Will be back!... More

I stayed for one night and found it a comfortable and friendly place. The owner is very welcoming and helpful. This establishment is a good average standard - the room was well equipped if somewhat dated - tea/coffee facilities, toiletries, TV, small fridge and microwave and the bathroom had both a bath and shower. There were minor little things that... More

I travel to Pretoria for business and are normally booked at 40 on Ilkey. The experience there always makes it feel more like holiday as being there for work. The staff became like family (those family you actually look forward to see, lol) and the relaxing and friendly atmosphere makes you forget that you are in the middle of a... More

40 on Ilkey is always my first choice when staying in Pretoria, which is frequent due to the nature of my line of work. Ilkey is restful, peaceful and homey. Here you can relax and rejuvenate when on vacation and recharge your batteries when preparing for a busy day when on business. It’s ideally located near Menlyn and the many... More

I was posted to Pretoria for work and my company put me up at 40 on Ilkey. Coming from Asia - I have mind set that I will be put up in a hotel instead of B&B. Looking back, there were no regrets staying over in 40 on Ilkey, in fact, it was the best decision over. Danel and Johan... More

What a pleasant surprise. In this day and age of "dis-connected" humans it is good to get some positive feedback. Let us hope we can do some moe business in Menlyn or the surrounding area to first hand experience the improvements! Thank you...
