A wonderful little guesthouse in Pretoria. Near all the major highways and only ten minutes from Loftus Stadium. Very friendly staff and comfortable rooms. Fantastic dinners available weeknights that are both fabulous as well as good valued.

Being from Melbourne, Australia is was intimidating to experience a (small) hotel in what was an obviously wealthy area with high walls, electric fenses, razor wire and every other security feature you can think of. The security around you makes you feel vunerable - but it is necessary by all accounts. The greeting you receive from Andre and the staff is warm, welcoming and sincere and helps in dispelling the feeling of vunerability. My wife and I had room 7. It is large with plenty of wardrobe space. The bathroom is huge. The TV has plenty of channels. The bed was large but was too firm for my wife and I. The breakfast was ample and filled our requirements easily. We had one evening meal which was expertly cooked by 'Bert'. It was delicious and again was more than adequate. Our only complaint here was that the dining area was very cold. Heating appliances were obviously in short supply! Overall the hotel is clean, hospitable, welcoming and well run by Andre. In conclusion Richtershuyz a pretty good place to stay. Recommended.

This guesthouse is well situated for business travellers who needs to be in Pretoria East. The N1 highway is also easily accessible as well as a range of shopping malls and restaurants.
The guesthouse serves breakfast from a menu in addition to the limited selection of cereals, yoghurt and fruit salad. Dinner is also served but I never used this option. However, one is told early morning what will be for dinner and then asked if you will have it. Knowing what one wants to eat 12 hours into the future is a bit too much to ask and then presenting only one option is not what endeared me to Richtershuyz. The chef has also varied Eggs Benedict and replaced the usual slithers of smoked salmon with thick slices of cheap breakfast ham and a further two rashers of bacon are served with the eggs; the Hollandaise sauce also requires more practice. Breakfast is served at 7 am which is a bit late if one has an 8 am appointment somewhere in town.

The standard rooms (Room 3) are small although decently furnished and with good bedding. There is ample cupboard space and the bathroom is large. Deskspace is, however, limited and the wi-fi very unstable. Similarly 3G connectivity (Vodacom) is not good at all in the area and a 2/5 signal is the best I got.

The rate for the single room was R650 (Euro 65 approx). If you want to stay here, ask for Room 7 the executive suite. This is large and spacious with all the comforts and you pay accordingly.

Room Tip: Ask for Room 7.
