We had our wedding in Pretoria and stayed the wedding night at East View guest house. Everything about the place was good , from the friendly arrival reception to the friendly goodbye. Lynette , the hostess is a lovely ,warm and friendly person. After the wedding she made the dining area available to us to have some drinks. The breakfast was fanatastic. Would recommend it anytime.

We had already been in South Africa for two weeks and were nearing the end of our trip when an extremely unfortunate situation happened. Our room at a different guest house was burglarized and we needed another place to stay given that: 1) we felt completely uncomfortable; and 2) there were no other secure rooms. Thankfully, the Blignaut family welcomed us with open arms, even at midnight on a Friday evening, without any questions asked.

The room which we stayed was wonderful and we felt completely at ease. They rooms are located in a separate guest house from the main house and it is a lovely building. The property is absolutely gorgeous with the main house, guest house, garage and separate breakfast room with a pool and beautiful gardens. The room itself has a queen size bed with a en suite shower and restroom. The room comes equipped with a water heater, water and tv. Guests are free to use the fridge in the breakfast room and there is water, tea and coffee provided. Breakfast is also lovely with a small buffet of fruits, yogurt, porridge and cereal and you are asked how you'd like your eggs and whether you want sausage, bacon, grilled mushrooms and tomatoes which is then made fresh. There is also of course a variety of juices, tea and coffee.

The East View Guest House is in an ideal location for Pretoria, right next to the Union Building and in close proximity to other attractions. It is also located near many restaurants and strip malls so you won't go hungry or bored if you want to venture to eat and shop. Pretoria however is definitely a city where you need to rent a car.

The Blignaut's make you feel right at home which personally is what makes this Guest House top of the class. They opened their home to us and invited us to have a traditional South African barbecue with them around a fire (aka "braai") as well as to watch the a soccer match with the family. Unfortunately, as we had to sort out details of the robbery from the other guest house the night before, we were unable to accept any invitations, which was really unfortunate as we were sure we would have had an amazing time. If you are an animal lover, the Blignaut's also have 2 beautiful cats, 2 wonderful great danes and 3 other adorable smaller dogs who are the friendliest creatures you will ever meet. For you non-animal lovers, don't worry, the dogs are placed in a different part of the property and are not let loose unless the guests are okay with them. I personally loved having the animals greet me every morning - they made the weekend so much better.

We will definitely be back at the East View Guest House and to explore Pretoria as we were unable to do so this trip. We highly recommend staying here given the ideal location and wonderful accommodation and reception.
