I exchanged my room (which was outside) for my colleagues (which was inside). There is a difference. I prefer the outside room as there is more space; it's brighter & the bathroom is bigger; not to mention fresh air. The inside room was cramped, the bathroom tiny & the adjoining room with the kitchen was a strange set-up.

The Blue Crane luxury suite has everything such that if I were building my house again I would use it as a model for my en suite master bedroom, with its small TV lounge, large dressing room and spacious bathroom. Add to that the balcony view (this looks over the bird sanctuary - and yes there is no traffic noise)... More

We spent a lovely few days here and would not hesitate to come back. Rooms were spacious and pretty, breakfast was great, and I loved being able to sit out on the patio overlooking the garden and pool and read. There was also a very convenient restaurant at the end of the road, which we went to a few times.

The guest house was very comfortable and spacious. We had everything that we needed and more. Being so close to the Bird Sanctuary is a definite plus point. The food was good and tasted nice. The light in the main bathroom however was not working and the reception did not answer calls after 9pm which was a little frustrating. But... More

I spent two nights at the Crane's Nest Guesthouse, working, and the place is just great. Amazing and cozy space, in one of the best areas of Pretoria. The backyard is lovely, an amazing place to spend some hours in the morning, relaxing. The service, the staff, the food, the room, everything was perfect. I hope to have another chance... More
