“Quaint and friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012 via mobile

Staff always smiling. they do a room check when you reach room ensuring everything is working. rooms have nice bath, shower (fab large overhead thing). Good individual a/c. flatscreen with multitude of channels inc BBC.
private patio. fridge, kitchenette with microwave, cups etc. laughed as hairdryer tested and as i am bald we decided it wouldn't be used.
trying room service tonight (restaurant looked good at lunchtime) on recommendations of a colleague.
all rooms in 1 storey blocks spread out. they have an electric buggy for you and luggage.
normal laundry service as well as self service option (takes new Rs 5 coins).
I like it!

This hotel has a convenient location. The basics are good. You can smell the bleach and the cleanliness is not an issue.

The security appears adequate, however, people drove me back to the hotel. They did not stay there, and the gate guard simply opened the gate for the car, never checking anything.

The internet has A LOT to be desired. It was down or slow, more than it was up. If you called the desk they would say that it was a national situation, or that it was just slow right now.

The pictures shown on the website have to be some of the rooms that are prime. None of the five of us had one.

Overall, I would try to get a discount for this hotel.

On a good note....The staff was very good!

people were the best part of this hotel, never met a friendlier bunch of people then here. They have the system down when it comes to showing guests to their room. Turn the TV on, make sure water is in the bathroom etc. Did NOT have any good hot water pressure though. Showed them multiple times & to no avail. This hotel was very convenient to my work so it was nice. Convenient to a grocery store, other restaurants etc.

This is a Motel 6 in Africa - there are plenty of great reasons to stay here. Convenient location, rooms have functional "kitchens", breakfast is included.
The rooms open to the outside, security was fine, but you will hear a lot of outside noise, from the gardener trimming the hedges at the crack of dawn, to your hotel neighbors walking back and forth. Woolworths is just a couple of blocks away and the kitchenette is sufficient enough for you to stock your fridge and eat in, if you choose.
I would stay again if work required me to, the location is convenient.

Stayed here for a short workshop. Doesn't quite have the charm of many of the smaller guesthouses in Pretoria. The set up is kind of like a motel with rooms opening out to an open walkway in front of parking. Most of the area is taken up by driveways or buildings. Green space is limited although they make an effort to do something with what they have. The pool and gym are tiny.

The location is very good being right across the street from the US Embassy and next to the Australian High Commission. A block away is a shopping plaza with a couple restaurants and cafes as well as a all grocery store ( Woolworth's).

Extreemly easy to find and most convenient, good secure parking, large modern rooms with all conveniences. An efficient freindly reception. Meals were good, especially breakfast. For business stop over in Pretoria it had all I needed.

The lunch and dinner buffet were awful. Two salads, one of which was frozen peas drowned in mayonaise. Overcooked, tasteless vegetables, The roas lamb was ok. Cold pancakes for dessert. The dinner was a repeat, except the lamb was replaced with a beef roast. The wine list pathetic. Just four reds and four whites, all mass produced labels. The young, untrained lady at the bar knew nothing about wines. A mystery how this hotel has four stars.
