The original house has been tastefully decorated in period style with the accommodation in modern suites on the property, surrounded with beautiful gardens and many private nooks to enjoy some tranquility. Welcomed with drinks and snacks courtesy of our hosts during happy hour (two hours), we had a light meal which was fresh, beautifully served and amazing value for money.... More

I stayed here with my wife for one night in September 2016. It was a hot day on arrival and I decided to cool off, but when I took a look at the pool I changed my mind. It was covered with leaves, and there seemed to be some sort of oil like scum on the surface. The area around... More

The hotel is located close to the University and Loftus and the relaxed ambience of the Happy Hour with free drinks and cocktail eats makes it a worthwhile hotel to stay in when visiting Pretoria on business. The staff are friendly and the hotel is in a secure complex. My room with kitchenette was spacious and the bathroom clean. My... More

Courtyard Hotel is located in Arcadia, close to UP and Hatfield and with easy access to the city and major arterial roads. A beautifully restored old Governors Mansion, great staff, very good rooms in a secure complex with free parking. Happy hour with free drinks and nibbles in the evening. Not the cheapest hotel but worth that bit extra.

Excellent and neat place with confident staff. A four staff place with good amenities for a memorable business trip. The hotel room is equipped with lockable safe, reading or working table, comfortable lounge suit and bed. The ambience is good and there is a pool,unlimited free drinks every day 1700-1900. Internet is fast enough for basic business activities.

This is my second visit but the first time I wasn't impressed with the hotel, not having free wifi and not accepting USD for payment. I needed to be near the University of Pretoria so I took a risk, booked again and was pleasantly surprised that they had free wifi. My room is not as good as the last one... More

Just spent three weeks at this gate-enclosed, historic property--my 8th time since 2002. Always feel welcomed. The suites are comfortable with stocked mini-kitchenettes. The breakfast buffet is ample and delicious, complete with eggs cooked to order. The daily Happy Hour is a great opportunity to wind down and socialize with guests. The pool and mini-laundry facility adds to the comfort... More

This hotel consists of a colonial main building with nice common spaces and more recent annexes with 60 or so guest rooms. The old part is charming and offers several places for working and conversations, indoors and at different terraces. Rooms are spacious and well equipped but lack personality.
