I had the option of spending the night in Jo'burg or Pretoria and my stay at Ambiance made me glad that I chose Pretoria. Like the name suggests, it is about the atmosphere, which is very chic yet very warm and great value for money.

The room I stayed had most of things what you need such as kitchen, refrigerator, internet and DSTV. I stayed for two months and it was very comfortable experiences with family atmosphere. I recommend everyone to stay there.

The guesthouse is situated in a peaceful neighbourhood, the rooms are always neat and clean (including the bathroom). The lady there is polite. Check-in and check-out times are sometimes flexible (depending on whether there was a guest the previous night). I keep going back because Ambiance provides excellent service. Woke up feeling refreshed this morning !

I have tried out other guesthouses in Pretoria, but always return to Ambiance. Visited the guesthouse 4 years ago and the owner still remembered me. You pay for the room and gets a beautiful room with a lot of extras on the house!

We had a wonderful stay. Best value for money ever. The room has everything we needed and so much extra. We were spoiled with so many wonderful snacks. The bed was very comfy and we enjoyed the electric blanket and the heater which warmed the room. Will recommend Ambiance Guest house to anyone.

Ambiance is an exceptional B&B. A comfortable and private room awaits after being welcomed upon arrival with a glass of wine or beer. Nice and generous touches are everywhere, from the abundant complimentary snacks to the bottle of Amarula in your room for your nightcap. Very nice breakfast, with fresh cheeses, charcuterie, homemade granola, and hot selections. Deirdre clearly has... More

Great place to stay and good value for money. Friendly hosts and everything you need- some self catering options . Skill needed for the narrow driveway :-)but a good test of your motor skills. Enclosed garden with a pool.

The accommodation was comfortable and cosy with ample attention to detail. Hosts were friendly and attentive and made us feel right at home. Location is central and within easy driving distance of Hatfield, Menlyn and Brooklyn centres.

We had a wonderful stay at Ambiance whilst we were visiting friends in Pretoria for a wedding. Our hosts were delightful and very helpful and we are likely to stay there again when we visit Africa in 2017. Thank you Deidre and Pietr
