Excellent accomodation with everything that you need, tranquility, beautiful gardens and good service. The rooms has everything that one needs. The hosts are friendly and assist you with anything you need and both greeted us even though we turned up late. The food was 1st class and all the help very friendly, we will surely return here when we come again. In overall a fantastic stay. Kevin

I found the rooms to be large and airy with full DSTV, WIFI connection, my stay was a very tranquil and peaceful. The rooms are more than comfortable and the decor and finishing’s are excellent. I have stayed in other guest houses rated 3 & 4 Star, The Glen Marion is a 6 star rating as far as I am concerned. S Mitchell August 2013.

Room Tip: All the rooms are excellent!

This was by far one of the best guest houses i stayed in. Was greeted at the car and helped with my luggage all the way to my room, the layout of the room was free flowing and the bed was a dream to sleep in. Extras in the room is full DSTV, Coffee, Tea, Milk, Sugar and some biscuits.
Breakfast was great and the place where it was served was great, breakfast was made for me as i arrived in the dinning room as made as per my request. It was great........

I stayed here for nearly three weeks and was greeted with a very warm friendly welcome. Booking was easy and response to my enquiry for accommodation was swift. I was able to effect payment over the internet.

My room was light and airy, equipped with coffee/tea making facilities, a decent sized fridge, a heater and satellite TV. In addition, Wireless internet was available at not extra cost. There is a large swimming pool and the garden areas were kept very neat and tidy.

The room was always kept clean, being serviced everyday, and the bed was comfortable with clean linen. Staff were very friendly, cooperative and helpful at all times. Laundry facilities were offered at a very reasonable additional cost.

A full breakfast was provided. Cereals, fruit and such like were available with the addition of a full cooked breakfast if desired. They also offered lunch and supper by prior arrangement. I did not use this service, but heard from other guests that these meals were also of very good quality. However, there is a takeaway home delivery service in the area if you prefer.

Nearby, there are various amenities including a couple of small supermarkets, a pharmacy, petrol station, a Chinese restaurant and a pizzeria. So I found it unnecessary to go very far for basics. There is also a very large mall nearby for more extensive shopping.

During the entirety of my visit, I was treated with hospitality and personal service from the proprietors and staff alike. The proprietors often went out of their way to ensure that I was comfortable and frequently offered assistance, such as transport, and nothing seemed too much trouble in order to provide a good overall experience of my stay.

My only criticism is that there were a very limited number of satellite channels available in my room and would have appreciated the addition of some movie and sports channels.

Nonetheless, I have no hesitation in recommending this very well run establishment for both business and pleasure, short or long stay.

I spent a very comfortable 4 nights at Glen Marion. The quality and cleanliness of the rooms, beds and linen won me over. It’s conveniently located to all the amenities you might need, the owners are hospitable without getting under your feet and free wifi…. is the cherry on the cake. This establishment ranks highly on places to stay in Pretoria and worth every penny!
