Reviewed October 8, 2012

Opikopi is great. The atmosphere and the rooms are lovely - very homely and comfortable, complete with extra little touches like a small carafe of sherry on the dressing table. The hosts Pieter and Helen are so nice and welcoming, and their staff are friendly and capable - Sonnybill's smile will stay with us forever! Anything we wanted to do was no problem, and organised in a flash. After a four-day stay we went back two weeks later and were greeted like family! Thoroughly recommended.

I organized a tour of Southern Africa in light aircraft. The group stayed 4 days prior to the trip commencing & another night after returning. We all found the rooms & amenities to be up to a high standard, but the point that was the most noticeable was the friendliness & willingness to help from Peter & Helen & their staff. From organizing transport for the group & taking guests to shops, to personally meeting us at airports. On return there was a genuine interest in the happenings of the days events. The meals were always of a very high standard & well received.
They went the extra mile for guests to make all feel welcome, sometimes in stressfull times. I thoroughly recommend a stay at Opikopi.

This is such a pleasant surprise. Excellent,safe location with beautiful views of Pretoria from the heights of Erasmusrand.This close to the major shopping district in Pretoria.

The units are large.The one that we are in has a main bedroom and 1 room adjascent. A seperate bathroom with a jaccuzzi bath. A double shower was such a treat.

Also a seperate walk in cupboard and dressing area.

Breakfasts are great and dinner is available a la carte.

Large swimming pool in a tranquil setting with meticulously tended gardens.

What a delight to stay here.

Lovely, pretty place. Very clean with gorgeous bed linen, soft robes and good room facilities. Fridge is a nice touch. Staff were very friendly and helpful, and I had a great stay. It's in a very nice part of town, and very quiet. I need to come back in summer so that I can use the pool; bit chilly in June! Thanks xx

This Guesthouse is situated in a safe part of Pretoria East. The rooms are apcious and very stylish - loved the bed. The breakfast was good and there's a sparkling swimming pool to cool off on the warmer days. Well located. I can definitely recommend this one!

We were looking for a comfortable, clean, organized and private place to stay. This place is all that and more. We stayed in number 6, which has a kitchenette, beautiful bathroom with jacuzzi, and best of all for Pretoria this time o year - underfloor heating!
The room is spacious, well decorated and very comfortable. The staff are very friendly and helpful.
The inclusive breakfast was one of the best I have had at such establishments.
Highly recommended.

What a lovely place to spend a wedding night... We were greeted late at night by friendly staff, roses, chocolates and champagne, a warm bubble bath and the softest of cotton robes. An AMAZING king size bed with lovely comfortable linen, clean, fresh and quaint. Even the lighting in the rooms has been well considered, especially the honeymoon suite. The breakfast was delicious, the area quiet and pleasant. We will try return here annually to enjoy our experience all over again, we already have once and it was just as great as the first time, if not better. We recommend this to all couples who enjoy the romantic side of life...
