We spent two weeks here as part of a business trip. All the staff were very friendly and went out of their way to accommodate our needs (e.g. early breakfast) - remembering our meal preferences for example. The well-equipped kitchenette in the room gave us the option of buying from the supermarket (10 minute walk around the corner) and making... More

The guesthouse is a short ride to the downtown center. Location is near the Presidency, which is good for running/walking. The rooms are very comfortable and well appointed with a small kitchen. The atmosphere is great, including an "on your honor" bar on a rooftop terrace. Breakfast is good, typically served at a large dining room table with all guests... More

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
