Bohemian Rhapsody Guest House & InnTshwane Lodge
Ranked #15 of 364 Pretoria B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 16, 2014

As soon as we arrived at Bohemian rhapsody, we were greeted with genuine warmth by our hostess. Our rooms were spacious with DSTV and Wi Fi and the bedlinen of superior quality. I don't think I have ever met a friendlier staff and our breakfast was prepared to a very high standard. We were offed fresh fruit, beautifully prepared with yogurt and presented in a shell and then we were able to order a cooked breakfast to our preference. The gardens are peaceful and tranquil and the swimming pool of a good size and depth. We appreciated the warmth and kindness of the proprietors and will certainly stay at Bohemian Rhapsody again when we are next in Pretoria.

We want to thank the staff at Bohemian Rhapsody for once again making our stay so pleasant. Because our company often book us for periods of 3 weeks or longer, we found that staying in guesthouses regularly for such long periods of time is often very tiring. Not with Bohemian Rhapsody - the laid back atmosphere makes one feel relaxed and at home, like a small holiday resort in the city.
You have everything you need - Internet in your room, a fridge, microwave, etc. Especially the private entrance to each room is really appreciated. You can come and go without any concerns of disturbing the other guests.
We will be back next year!!

Loved the food, the rooms were magnificent and the staff was just fabulous. Really enjoyed ourselves. Thank you so much Bohemian Rhapsody guest house

We were spoilt rotten during our stay at Bohemian Rhapsody Guest House, the hostess was very friendly and kind and warm-hearted. The catering was sublime, real 5-star menus. The rooms were very neat and beautifully lain out. They treated us like real VIP's and I believe that is how they treat each and every soul that enters their premises. I would recommed this place a thousand times over and over again. Thank you for the wonderful experience. A shining jem tucked away in the hustle and bustle of the big city.

We have just got back from our trip to South Africa and my husband and I did a separate survey on things such as best hotel, friendliest staff, value for money etc and this one came out on top for us both. We only had one day in Pretoria before flying home to the UK, and while we there Elise did everything she could to make us welcome and also even took us out to a mall with restaurants for dinner, dropped us off and came back to collect us when we had finished our meal. We asked if we could leave our luggage there while we visited with family before going to the airport and we were given any empty room to have a shower etc before heading home. Elise also arranged our transport to the airport at short notice. The standard of the accommodation was very good, the bed was the best we slept in, and the gardens were the tropical kind I expected when coming to South Africa. Brilliant, would recommend to anyone and we will definitely use again the next time we are in South Africa.......oh and the home made rusks are gorgeous!!

Lovely well appointed and comfortable rooms where pretty much everything has been thought of and provided for. Spent three weeks here visiting family but having to work as well so having good wifi and a proper work space was fantastic. (As was having a microwave in the room!) Great attention to detail and excellent service by both the very friendly staff and the owners, Elise and Zane, for whom nothing was ever too much trouble. Have spent time in other great Pretoria B&B's but this was definitely the best (and as an added bonus the most reasonably priced).

It was really a pleasure to stay at this guest house. The service is great, the rooms are beautiful, the garden is amazing and the staff is incredibly friendly. I really enjoyed my stay at Bohemian Rhapsody Guest House, it is a wonderful place to stay if you are away from home.
