Our first visit to South Africa will not be our last! We had a wonderful stay at Osborne House in the leafy suburb of Brooklyn. Our hosts Pieter and Sunette have a little gem here and they could not have been more friendly and helpful. The guest house is set in beautiful gardens and the rooms are spacious and well... More

This is truly a beautiful Victorian house and it is decorated wonderfully. Our stay was a bit disappointing though. My first interaction with the owner was at 11pm when he walked into the hotel, never welcomed me to his hotel but asked me to come through to the kitchen and settle my account (2 days early) because he was going...

The guesthouse and rooms itself are very beautiful! Also the surrounded area (Brooklyn) is safe and worth a walk. Breakfast was delicious as well. Only negative point was: We had to leave the Guest House very early in the morning (before breakfast starts) and asked the night before, if we could get some simple bred in the morning without asking...

We arrived tired from an overnight flight from London and Sunette welcomed us with tea on the veranda served on white linen and accompanied by homemade biscuits, what a perfect start to our trip. The house is delightful, full of lovely old furniture perfectly setting off its age. The breakfasts were unique and perfectly cooked. The rooms were large and... More

Well maintained mansion from the beginning of the 1900s with nice (almost) contemporary furniture and other decorations. Lots of personality and charm. Comfortable beds, rooms with high ceilings, a good shower and tasty breakfast. Located in a central part of Pretoria but entirely quiet, no traffic at night or in the mornings. Only potential drawback: there is no restaurant.

Set in a quiet yet extremely central neighbourhood, this Victorian home had charm and character. Sunette is an attentive hostess, and she certainly has an eye for design and detail. My room was extremely comfortable, the breakfast was delicious, and I felt very much at home. Ad last but not least, extremely reasonably priced given the standard. Highly recommended.

What a lovely guest house, entertaining hostess and delicious food! The ambience is absolutely delightful and I can gladly recommend Osborne to weary travellers who are looking for a home away from home.

I stayed for one night, and wish i could have extended. The guest house is beautiful and meticulously kept. I was served a delicious breakfast on the balcony overlooking the gardens - Felt like a lord of leisure. I didn't get a chance to swim, but there was a great pool. The room was very spacious and beautifully decorated. Finally,... More

A colleague recommended this bed and breakfast to me. The staff were helpful on arrival right to the end of my stay. The living area and my room were charming. Next time I'm in Pretoria I will definitely stay here.
