Looking at the bad reviews from previous guests, I regret not taking them more seriously. A 5 star experience was a must for a special getaway. We received the complete opposite. - rude correspondence via email - No welcome, "who you?" - "your welcome drink will be later with supper." Get to the room: - an old oil heater that... More

It is a pity that your experience was so bad. It is just simply not true that there was no hot water. We use a gas geyser and always have a spare cylinder on standby, when it was reported there is no hot water we immediately switched over to the standby and five minutes later there was hot water. Apologies... More

Situated just a few km east of Pretoria, this comfortable guest house is set in a beautiful garden filled with palm trees. The rooms are luxurious and comfortable, the food home-cooked and tasty, and the host rounds off the good service by making you feel at home. Thanks Barry!

Thank you for your response and confirming, like so many others, that they really enjoy the peaceful and tranquil environment. Our bird feeder introduced finds many Go Away birds, black eyed bull bulls, crested barbets, black collard barbet, Cape glossy starlings, as well as Olive thrush feeding on the fruit provided daily. Please come again and help identify the eagle. More

At about 11h00 the guests were found walking about the guesthouse and we at first assumed they were part of the wedding guests. When asked they said they are just checking the place out. They were politely informed the rooms are not... More

Enjoy our stay very much, the changing of rooms when getting ready for the wedding was the only down side, we had to change rooms in the middle of getting ready for our wedding. But overall the hotel was beautiful

Thank you for the review. The bridal package includes a honeymoon suite which the bride uses to get dressed in and is cleaned and decorated for when they return. It also includes a separate room for the groom to get dressed from 12h00 - 14h00. After 14h00 the groom and party is welcome to use the lounge and or pool... More

Thank you for this review. We have security patrols at night supplied by a service provider and sometimes the dogs respond if it is a new person patrolling. Relaxing at Villa Amor is key to us and we also find ways to make your stay as peaceful as possible. More
