“Very pleasant hotel for business or holiday”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

This hotel is nicely laid out in courtyard format, with lots of nooks and crannies (both inside and out) in which to sit and work or relax. I was in a studio queen room, which was large and comfortable, and very clean and well-maintained. My only (small) criticism was the lack of hairdryer. Also the flipside of having a room that looks out onto open spaces is that you can sometimes be a bit exposed to people walking past, etc. I would happily stay here again.

I come to this hotel on business with other colleagues and have stayed for two weeks. It's just 40 mins drive from Joburg. They offer free drinks from 5pm to 7pm each day, and free muffins in the morning at the entrance. I like the terrace the most because I've spent many happy evenings there relaxing. Rooms are spacious and with simple kitchenett, and are set in small houses instead of dull massive building. They have a small swimming pool which is nice to sit by, but probably don't expect you can swim inside.

Just some weird things here: water from the shower will spread over the floor no matter how hard you try to avoid; the cleaner will not replace your shampoo and shower gel until you've finished the last drop.

Room Tip: Try to choose one close to the reception which would have better wifi coverage (but wifi is only fre...

Charming and sweet, and you can't beat the nice happy hour on Friday evenings. The Internet was a bit slow -- not uncommon on this trip -- but everything else was top notch at the hotel: spacious and nicely appointed rooms, friendly staff, excellent breakfast.

Located in a safe area of Pretoria, this charming hotel offers great rooms, full breakfast and very charming staff. There is a small pool in a nice green garden. Great place for a stopover or longer stay. Most rooms have a kitchenette.

Stayed here for two nights recently while visiting Pretoria and the Cradle of Humankind. The main building is a restored manor and is charming and unique. Other buildings have been added and we stayed in a large one bedroom. It had a kitchenette equipped with small fridge, microwave, dishes, etc. Large windows and a balcony overlooking pretty gardens complimented the dinette and sitting room. It is a homey feeling and we were comfortable. I had a rental car and I always felt that parking was secure. Room service is available as well as delivery from a local restaurant; both were pretty tasty. Halfway through the second night the aircon started squeaking to the point where I had to turn it off. The staff is very helpful and happy hour is a nice touch. While this is not normally the type of accomodations I choose, it was comfortable, clean, safe, and well-appointed.

I travel to Pretoria for business at least once a month and we stay at the Courtyard for a week at a time. It has become like a second home. The staff is so friendly and helpful and that is what makes the place great. The rooms are spacious, comfortable beds, and microwave/fridge. The location is in a quiet area and you can walk to some shops about 10 min away, but not safe at night, better if you have a car. Breakfast is typical courtyard buffet, not amazing, esp considering the price but it is fine. There is wireless but after the first 15 min you have to pay per min/gb. There is a nice happy hour every day from 5-7 pm with free drinks and snacks.

My husband stays at this hotel quite frequently for business and last week I joined him. Pleasant location in Hill Street, which at the right time of year is lined with Jacaranda trees. The rooms are clean, bright and spacious with kitchenettes. There is a small pool area. Breakfasts are goodl. The hotel operates a happy hour from 6-7pm. Staff are very courteous, friendly and helpful. I would recommend it.

Room Tip: Room 20 is on two levels.
