Our stay at Sherewood Lodge was very peaceful and most enjoyable and we found the staff friendly and exceptionally helpful. The buildings inside and the grounds of the Lodge are very well maintained and it certainly creates an ambiance of a retreat

We wanted accommodation on very short notice for my wife , 2 kids( 4 and 7 y) and myself. Loraine was very helpful and accomadated us in their Honeymoon suite adding a few sheets, blankets and pillows. The breakfast was also five star standard. Compliments to Loraine and her very friendly staff.

All staff members were well presented and took extra care looking after my family. Huge gardens that were very well kept. Good proximity to all shopping, restaurants and essentials. Will definitely be on my favourites list of places to stay!!

Sherewood is brilliant. The lodge has an African theme, nice grounds and comfortable outdoor lounges.

The rooms are excellent. Large, comfortable, clean. Great beds. Excellent bathrooms.

Breakfast was Delicious.

Last but not least, Lorraine, is the perfect hostess. She makes everyone feel at home and pays attention to every detail.

I have stayed there 3 times now and would not want to stay anywhere else when in Pretoria.

If Siskel and Ebert reviewed B+B's Sherewood would get the two thumbs up.

This is a great place to stay, right on the eastern edge of the urban sprawl of Pretoria and handy for dropping down on the backroads to Johannesburg OR Tambo the next day.

The Lodge is situated in a quiet residential area well off the main road, and provided everything we wanted - nice 2 room family apartment, well-equipped, clean, safe and quiet. Nice grounds, we even heard a Freckled Nightjar as the lodge backs on to a rocky hillside.

Breakfast was a feast, prepared for us by owner Lorraine - a super lady, great to chat to and a mine of information. She also helped us with dinner suggestions - the excellent Downtown restaurant is a short walk down the quiet residential street at a neighbouring small hotel, just what we wanted after a long drive.

Just our sort of place, away from the hustle and the bustle. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: We were in the self-catering family unit 7, very good accommodation with plenty of space over 2 room...

Rooms is in great condition, nothing to complain about.

Breakfast was equally very very good.

Overall great stay, will def recommend it.

My husband and I stayed at Sherwood when we were attending a friend's birthday party at a venue in Lynwood. What a pleasant surprize to find such a delightful guest lodge so close to the party venue and at such a reasonable price. The staff members were all very friendly and professional. From booking to check-out, we experienced no difficulties and we were made to feel like VIP's. The room was clean and very comfortable. The garden creates a very tranquil setting. Being from the Free State, we always feel somewhat unsafe in the city, but at Sherwood we felt relaxed and safe. The breakfast was delicious - no upmarket hotel has ever served me an omelette packed full of so much flavour! We definitely recommend Sherwood!
