Room very comfortable and and most attractively decorated. There was a very nice terrace outside ones room with a table and chairs where one could look at the lovely views over Pretoria. The room service was slightly lacking and the menu rather limited although the breakfast was good also I think a lunch snack menu would be a good idea... More

We booked rooms with city views from the balconies for one night in February 2016. Beautiful location in a lovely upmarket suburb on the hill in Groenkloof. Small quiet boutique hotel with spacious rooms and comfy beds. Great lunch served by the hotel restaurant. Peaceful courtyard area with pool. Great service from all the staff, who were all extremely friendly...... More
