We really enjoyed staying at Castello di Monte. The breakfast was very good and the Staff went out of their way to help us enjoy our stay. It's a very relaxing hotel and has such a gorgeous view over Pretoria. My main recommendation to the Hotel would be to offer better quality toiletries in the bathroom.

20th wedding anniversary evening with my wife in the honeymoon suite
The accommodation was spectacular, the attention of the staff really just right. Thanks Ferdie and Percy.
The food up on top of the world was delicious, as was breakfast the next day.
All in all a lovely way for us to be together in a very special venue
Thanks again

Recently returned from a one night stay. We were pleasantly surprised to be given the honeymoon suite, which was beautiful. We arrived in the afternoon and took advantage of a drink by the pool, beautiful views. From the moment to checking in to checking out, we couldn't fault anything. Dinner and breakfast were excellent, lovely selections on offer. Only one wish, we'd had more than one night to stay. Would certainly recommend to anyone visiting this region, owners/staff all deserve

As a frequent guest, I'm never disappointed by the property and service at the Castello. In fact, things were better this time around, as it looks like the wireless service downstairs has been upgraded!

This outstanding "guest house" boasts 9 rooms in incredible style. Ours was very comfortable with all the furnishings, ornament and decoration in keeping with the overall style of a palazzo. The staff were friendly and helpful, solicitous without being overbearing and an absolute delight. It was part of a two week holiday in celebration of our Ruby Wedding Anniversary and we spent a delightful three days resting after a hectic period before our departure from UK. The arrangement for meals were well thought through given that there were a number of events, such as a wedding lunch and an 80th birthday breakfast on different days. The setting of the guest house gave rise to some exceptional views from the turret and we took a number of photographs of the many jacaranda trees in full bloom.
We had a memorable stay and would not hesitate to recommend it as a suitable venue for any celebration.

Room Tip: All rooms had a view and the lift goes to the second floor

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
