Really nice place. Reception friendly and professional, rooms spacious and warm, and the furniture and bed of notable quality. Staff made breakfast half an hour before normal time to accommodate my early departure. Altogether a five star experience

My mother and I were travelling in Pretoria, going to the embassy and we stopped by this gorgeous B&B hoping we could get a place to sit and grab a quick breakfast. We were greeted and treated with so much care from the security guard outside all the way in to our table. We had a scrumptious breakfast and afterwards... More

Stayed at the room "Ostrich" which was clearly a very good choice. Very helpful staff that arranged local travel and provided interesting tips. Breakfast and evening meals were really nice. Good value for money and a homely place in a big city.

After being met at the airport by the guest house driver, We were warmly welcomed by our wonderful hostesses and made to feel immediately at home. Our room was clean, spacious and very comfortable. Dinner was pleasant and having lunch in the garden was a real treat. In sum, we were so pleased not to have gone to one of... More

Previous business trips having been spent in hotels which ranged from terrible to average but dull, Birdwood was a worthwhile experiment. The hotel is two blocks from the Hatfield Gautrain station and bus station and a block from the University of Pretoria. The main house is looking a little faded, but the rooms and gardens are well furnished and comfortable.... More

When I booked accommodation at Birdwood I was expecting 5 star as it had advertised. When I arrived outside it definitely appeared 5 star and displayed the 5 star tourism grading council sign. When I went inside however the hallway was poorly light and there was no one inside to welcome us. The hallway was also incredible dusty, a sign... More

It felt more like staying with a wonderful family than your usual hotel accommodation. The property is well appointed with a beautiful garden and private feel rooms. Location is ideal if you have business meetings that involve embassies. The US embassy is only 12 minutes walk. I felt safe enough to walk out at night to the Virgin Active gym... More

Stayed one week at Birdwood for business. A pleasant place, with the manor heritage giving it a homely feel. Nothing to really complain about - staff were friendly, rooms were sizable and adequate and the included breakfast was very good. A few quirks - for example, they don't allow guests to use an iron and ironing board (which I personally... More

The Birdwood Guest House was a wonderful oasis in the middle of Pretoria. We were a group of 10 university students and 3 instructors from Canada, visiting South Africa for a geological fieldtrip. We stayed at the Birdwood for 3 nights, and our stay was much too short. The host and staff were professional, but also very friendly, and attentive... More
