My 1st visit here although my brother has been staying here for many years. Excellent room with everything you could possibly want, fridge, in a kitchen area, fresh water, a drink and chocolate, iron, clothes steamer etc etc. The outdoor pool that my room opened onto looked very inviting. Lovely soft towels and wonderful shower. Restaurants within walking distance so no real need to drive. WiFi code for room and breakfast room. Marguerite is so nice as are all the staff. Very tasty breakfast. In an area of Pretoria that has lots of Embassies so feels very safe.

My family and I have been staying at Fern Ivy for almost 10 years. The owner, Marguerite goes out of her way to make you feel welcome and nothing is ever too much trouble. The rooms are luxurious and comfortable, fitted with everything you might need. The staff are courteous and friendly. Highly recommended!

I have stayed at Fern Ivy for over three years now after being referred by friends. Each and every stay has been a warm and homely experience with attentive Staff and excellent breakfasts. My daughter attended Tuks University during this time and we would often stay together at Fern Ivy during her exams as she felt like she was at home and relaxed. Needless to say, she has now graduated and the next time I am fortunate enough to stay at Fern Ivy will be for my next business trip. A huge thank you to Marguerite and her wonderful Staff for their warm hospitality.
