“everything was double-perfect”
Reviewed January 17, 2014

My four friends and I experienced the most wonderful two nights at Greenlea. We were warmheartedly welcomed and were given accommodation most definitely worth the money paid. The large garden, braai facility, swimming pool and the two friendly labradors all made our experience one to be remembered.

Safe Irene neighbourhood! Can only most highly recommend Greenlea!

We were looking for a reasonably priced room for one night in Centurion and found Greenlea online. We were positively surprised of the environment we got for the little money we paid.
The hosts were very friendly and easy going.
The room was well equipped and everything worked.
The garden is very nice and spacious.
Would be a nice place to go with children as well...

I like this guesthouse, it's placed in the quite area of Irene in Centurion. Yes, you need a car to get around, but that's valid for 95% of all places in SA. And it's close to the main highway ( N1, N14, N4, R21), so it's easy to get around. The room was great ( a balcony had been a bonus). But you can sit and relax in the garden! The breakfast was the thing i wasn't happy with, I think you could expect a bit more variety from such a up-end place. The wifi worked fine thou!

My experience at Greenlea Guest house was rather unpleasant , very noisy experience day and night. The breakfasts also was very disappointing for a four star Guest House rating. The rooms were comfortable , but no bath, so when booking please ask whether there are rooms with baths.

It's a good place to get some work done after work, as it is very quiet and provides a decent internet connection. Furthermore, the host is very friendly and helpful and always up for a chat. After a few days it felt like a home away from home. For our next trips we will stay again at Greenlea, as it is ideal for us.

I really enjoyed my short stay at this place. I travel to Centurion quite a bit and I know where I will be heading when I am in town. The room is very generous with its courtesy bar fridge, fold away work area and refreshment station. Lovely comfortable bed for a good nights sleep and huge bath and shower cubicle.
The breakfast service could be improved. With the kitchen area being removed from the breakfast area I was not able to request some small things without shouting for someone downstairs.

Really friendly family run outfit. Enjoyed my stay and will not hesitate to return on my next visit to Pretoria. Helped me whenever I needed it without looking like they are being put out. Great coffee.
