“Pleasant suprise in Pretoria”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

I stayed at Brooklyn Place by accident and couldn't have been more pleased. Barend and Yvonne were attentive, delightful and very helpful hosts. The facility, location, room and staff were all top-rate.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

Brooklyn Place is centrally located with easy access to the city central or the N1. It is a beautiful house and the host and hostess is friendly and helpful and made me fell very welcome. The breakfast and dinner was also well prepared and wholesome. Not a place I can recommend for the leisure traveler as some of the rooms are quite small. I did not like to spend much of the day at the guest house because it did feel as if I was staying in somebody else's house, but that is just my personal preference. The owners were not narking at all.

They have limited channels on the TV so the traveler that wants to watch TV at night might find it frustrating. The wi-fi internet is not free and was not easy to set up.

All in all it was a comfortable stay while I was on business in Pretoria.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012

Brooklyn Place has been our first experience of a guest house in South Africa. It was recommended because of its proximity to the University of Cape Town. It is located in a old, leafy suburb of Brooklyn. It is 1km from the University, and 1km for a major shopping area. The area is very quite a safe - but the normal precautions are taken.

The hosts, Barend and Yvonne, and their staff have gone out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The house is from the 1930s, built and decorated in a Victorian style. The bedrooms are large, each with an en-suite bathroom. The gardens are great with a refreshing pool. There are comfortable and quiet seating areas around the pool and on the verandahs.

The breakfasts make a great start to the day, and with arrangements an wonderful evening meal can also be provided.

We were pampered for the whole of our stay - way beyond our expectations. I'll let them surprise you with these extras.
