“Warm, welcoming and wonderful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 5, 2013

I was in Pretoria for business and found Sherewood Lodge to be fantastic. Lorraine and her staff went above and beyond to make my stay priceless. After the first few days with no internet in the room farthest from the main lodge, they moved my belongings to another room that had internet. Everything was practically in the same location in the new room. As I primarily travel abroad for work and typically stay in business class hotels, this was a refreshing change of pace. The grounds are serene and beautiful. The staff is friendly and helpful. At first it may appear of the beaten path, but within 5 minutes from the lodge, there are several shops and restaurants. They were helpful in contacting my rental car company, printing my boarding pass, packing a to-go breakfast when needed and recommending restaurants and shops.

If and when I return to Pretoria for business or pleasure, you can be sure I will stay here. It was lekker!

Room Tip: If you require internet access, request a room in or nearer the main lodge. Rooms 9 and 10, at the...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this venue, Quiet location, lovely facilties, scrumptious breakfast. Friendly and helpful staff - assisting with telephonic directions whilst en-route, carrying bags with a smile and sharing interesting stories around the breakfast table.

Room Tip: Family apartment with two separate rooms and kitchenette is quite convenient.

Nice place, a little tiny the rooms, but they make up for it with a good breakfast and nice environment.
Just missed that the manager wasn´t there so we couldn´t have some tips and information about the city (which is need since the Tourist Information in Pretoria is rather lousy).
Another thing: no internet connection was available.
A little far awy from the city, but reachable by car.

Checked up reviews, it seemed the best in our price range, and we were not disappointed. When we arrived at the gate, pressed the buzzer, immediately the gate was opened, by the time, we parked the car, Titus was there to grab our bags and take us to reception. We were out of reception within 15 seconds having just signed 1 paper (I was surprised as I had only done a last minute telephone booking without any payment) and on our way to our room the honeymoon suite to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary. The suite is in a secluded part of the property overlooking the immaculate gardens. As we entered we smelt the wonderful earthy smell of the thatch roof, the suite was out of this world, gracefully decorated without that opulent feeling, rather a rustic feel. With a bubble bath for two, a shower with 2 shower heads, two basins next to each other, the mood was set for a great night together. Next Morning Derek served an incredible breakfast, the whole time being close enough if we wanted anything, yet far enough away to give us our privacy. Everything was above our expectations, will definitely be recommending to friends.

We enjoyed our stay, from the moment we drove through the gates of this amazing lodge and its lovely garden. A true oasis, hidden in the mids of a busy city. The service was exceptional, our hosts always friendly and never to tired to help. The rooms very comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated. A place we would definitely visit again and could recommend with a pleasure!

The stay at Sherewood Lodge was exceptional!!! The service was personal, friendly and they really went out of their way to cater to our requests. Even opened the kitchen for us so we can get whatever we needed and feel at home. The rooms were beautiful and clean, the outside area is absolutely stunning!! Its an amazing place, definitely recommend it!!

Despite staying there out of season we found our family room to be extremely comfortable. The lodge itself is a sereis of thatched units set in very secure surroundings. Birdwatchers will love the antics of the visiting ibises and plovers. Breakfast was excellent and well worth every penny.
