Courtyard Hotel Arcadia
Ranked #17 of 73 Hotels in Pretoria
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 20, 2014 via mobile

I have stayed at this property 7 times since I first brought a student group here in 2002. Although some of the staff has changed since my first stay, there is also lots of consistency. As a result, I am welcomed back like a family member.

The manager, Andrea, is a gem. No request is too much. We asked for a birthday cake one morning to celebrate the birthdays of 3 members of our traveling group. The beautiful and delicious cakes were delivered as promised by late afternoon.

The hotel's amenities are really great--especially for long term stays like ours (3 weeks). The location is also ideal. The staff could not be more attentive. And yes, the daily "happy hour" is a fun way to wind down after a long day or gear up for an evening out.

The collaboration between this hotel and our program has been mutually beneficial.

I have been staying in this hotel on a regular basis since 1993. It succeeded in maintaining its high standards, hospitality and professionalism. No request is too much for the excellent and motivated staff. Breakfasts are great, all day coffee and tea as well as tempting biscuits are available all day, and happy hour in the early evening is pure indulgence with fresh savoury snacks and good SA wines. The rooms/suites are comfortable and tasteful; the swimming pool sparkling with drinks and suntan lotion; the terrace and gardens perfectly cared for.
This hotel is a must!

Room Tip: The stable is charming, the big house at the end is enormous, the rooms are all charming with terrac...

Stayed for three nights and had sitting room, kitchen/diner, bedrrom and bath. Vast. Breakfast is good but very meaty. Staff friendly. Lots of hot water for deep baths. Good location for embassies and rugby. You can eat in or order takeaways in. Very flexible. Free happy hour 5 to 7pm. Pleasant gardens. 15 mins free wifi a day, though the bandwidth is a bit thin. All in all a good place to stay.

A large group of us stayed here for about 6 days. The staff was very helpful and made every effort to insure that our stay was pleasant. It was like staying in a warm and personal cottage. The manager, Andrea Anderson, made sure every detail was cared for.

The benefits to this hotel are that rooms are large including a little kitchen and table area, they have a washer and dryer you can use, and the reception area is very much like a bed and breakfast. Very communal with some free drinks. The rooms are nice and large but nothing extra special. The staff was top notch as we came in as a huge group and they handled us very well.

This is different from the usual hotel hotels. It is very colonial designed hotel and is in the heart of pretoria. Very open roads around the hotel and is in the are where there are many embassies, so its quite safe. It is very close to the happening Hatfield square.

The breakfast buffet is not the best I have had, but its good.

Stayed on a business trip with colleagues. Excellent reception and other staff, comfortable, relaxing decor and furniture, comfortable spacious en suite bedroom, and excellent breakfast. That is the only meal provided but they will happily phone for take aways from a choice of places. There is both a happy hour and honesty bar and it is great to be surrounded by gardens and greenery.
