We only stayed one night at Castello di Monte but we thoroughly enjoyed it. The rooms were gorgeous with high ceilings. Our room had a huge outdoor balcony overlooking Pretoria. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfast. We hope to go back and spend more time there to enjoy the accommodations and the amazing view.
