I had colleagues and customers staying there for a few days.
Unfortunately I was forced to do this since my other normally frequented hotels were either fully booked or closed due to the holidays.
Nice little boutique hotel but the pricing policy is quite on the extreme side.
My colleagues were charged 500 Rand for an early check in even though the rooms were not occupied. They also charge in addition to that 500 Rand for a late check out - we made sure that we did not have to use this kind offer...The room rate was about 1500 Rand which is a bit on the high side especially for Pretoria and being right next to a main road. The rooms are nice and modern, although very small.
The place offers in-house cooking therefore we booked lunches and a diner.
The food was of very high quality and the chef was very creative. However we could have gone to the fanciest restaurant in town for these kind of prices (R 350 pp excluding drinks for a three course meal). We also only realized only too late that one of the bottles of wine which was offered to us 'on the house' had in fact been charged to us.
We also wanted to initially make use of their conference facilities - a dark garage type set up with some fancy office furniture right next to the main road( at about 5000 a day!)....we opted for the pretty veranda next to the pool.
Safety was a bit of a concern to us as well - when we came back from a diner on the one evening (at about midnight) the place was dark an no one answered the door bell.
However the gate had not been locked nor the front door (!!!)
Overall a mixed back - if you like a fancy modern environment you might enjoy the stay, however be sure to read the small print with great care to avoid disappointment and a burning hole in your wallet.
