We stayed here for one night between a Rovos rail journey and heading to Kruger National Park. It was perfect. The room was large, luxurious, quiet. It had everything you could possibly want.

The decor is last century luxury mixed with modern taste and comfort. The room we had at the rear was spacious, quiet and comfortable with a small... More

Very impressive structure overlooking the city. Friendly reception, very responsive. Room well appointed, luxurious, but with little natural light. Somewhat somber. Dinner excellent, although wine unnecessarily pricey. Breakfast equally good, but lacking in variety.

A breath taking property situated in an excellent location. You can view the heart of Pretoria and the surrounding suburbs from your balcony and even from the restuarant. The staff are amazing, i had a lovely stay and felt at home. Loved the room which was clean, neatly decorated and had a view.
