“Excellent Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

Kareebloem Guesthouse is situated in the heart of the Brooklyn Area, Pretoria. Although Pretoria has a "city" status, staying at Kareebloem was like being at a place far away for the city noise. This magnificent house designed by Sir Herbert Baker is decorated in Victorian style and the beautiful garden with the big Karee Tree is so inviting, you just want to spend the whole day there. Ciela the owner is a very friendly, warm individual and she makes you feel home from the start. The food is absolutely amazing. I would recommend this guesthouse to anyone who needs accommodation in Pretoria!

Room Tip: The outside cottage that use to be the study of South African Poet, Lina Spies is a must!

Everything about this place is relaxing. We loved the decor and our bedroom was wonderful. Each bedroom is different, I saw about five of them and they were all beautifully decorated. They have wooden floors, nice beds, big bathrooms, victorian style furniture. It was a nice experience from start to end. Breakfast is fantastic, do not miss it. The owners are so gracious and treat you like family. I was there with a large group and we all think it is the best BB in Pretoria. Loved my time there. I recommend it.

Room Tip: Red velvet bedroom (room number 5)

I stayed in the lovely Historical Guesthouse,designed by Sir Herbert Baker,and enjoyed it so much. Beautifully decorated rooms,and a big bathroom (with a shower and bath). I appreciated the friendly staff which provided a great service. However I like to have a choice when it comes to breakfast,and I dont think saldanah pilchards on french toast should be on the breakfast menu in a five star establighment!I will definately stay here again,and will recommend it to others.
