Service was excellent, room was like a beautiful dream come true. Colour codes was very relaxing and calming. nicely spacious and our very own private terrace ahhhhhh with an amazing view. For the first whilst in SA we didnt mind being indoors the whole time. The food was well done and fresh, enjoed the Breakfast with the chef's own omellete filling. The location is just magnificent too, we enjoyed taking pictures around the venue and it was nice and quiet with no disturbances at all :). keep it up

excellent staff, food was great! Everything about this place was amazing and I highly recommend it. Transfer was organised from OR Tambo Airport with no hassle. Unfortunately it was a bit cold to sit outside, the grounds are lovely and it would be a great place to be when the weather is warmer. The rooms are spacious and loved the underfloor heating!

Our Castello experience was truly all we expected and more. From the room - which was magnificant and truly beautiful, to the views of Pretoria at sunset, and the service. We felt spoilt and above all we were made welcome - as if they were open just to serve us. What a wonderful romantic place! Thank you all staff for making it special!

The venue is oustanding regarding the decoration inside and the view outside. The service was very good and all customers had a very good experience and want to make use of the venue in future.

The only negative was the fact that I had to pay R50 cork fee on non alcoholic champagne that I had to buy myself as it was not available at the venue. My feeling is that you should not pay so much cork fee if the prefered choice of drink is not offered at the venue. The alcoholic champagne cost R24 per bottle and I had to pay R50 per bottle to be served at the table. The solution will be to have non alcoholic champagne as part of your collection.

This must be one of Pretoria's best kept secrets...excellent location, great views, stunning rooms and very friendly and helpful staff. The guest house has 9 rooms however the property is enormous with several dining areas and an absolute must for honeymooners and couples. As a business traveler and found the property perfect for my needs. Free WiFi is standard throughout the hotel.

Room Tip: Book one of the terrace rooms for amazing views.
