We had one night here as part of our Blue Train trip. It was strange as it was our first night in South Africa and it was as though we were in Italy. Accommodation is superb and the staff provide excellent service. This place is a photographer's dream with excellent nooks and crannies that are worthy of photographing and would be excellent for a wedding.
Nothing was too much trouble for the staff even smiles when we arrived very early (about 5am) after a flight from Perth came in before schedule. Meals were excellent and even though it's in a suburban area you can walk about 100m down the road to the Pretoria Country Club for restaurant and/or pub style eating and drinking. Our time was too short there.
