A big thumbs-up for Marguerite and her staff at 'Fernivy Guest House'. We have stayed at this lovely guest house on a few occasions and have never been disappointed. The neighbourhood is peaceful and safe - yet not too far from anywhere. We always stay in room 1 - away from it all at the end of the upstairs corridoor... More

There are no words to describe Fern Ivy. It is unsurpassed. Marguerite and her husband are extremely welcoming and energetic and easy to relate to. They picked us up from the train station and gave us a little driving tour of Pretoria on the way back to the guesthouse. Marguerite then took us on a tour of the house, which... More

What a find. Rooms are well appointed with lovely white cotton sheets, good shower and lovely breakfast. Fernivy is well located near a lovely cafe and shops. The owners and staff were very helpful. On our first night we were a little disorganised and concerned about walking to the cafe so the owners daughter drove us down. The next day... More

FernIvy is an example of perfect guesthouse hospitality, which you can find only in South Africa. Location is perfect both for business and holiday, the neighborhood is really quiet and beautiful, and the Union Buildings are just a few minutes walk away. Ample parking, small pool and a very nice rooftop veranda for sunbathing. Service could not be any better... More
