Ponciana Superior Guesthouse
Ranked #6 of 38 Hartbeespoort B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 27, 2013

We visited the guesthouse over the weekend, to getaway from the chaos of Fourways. It was a relaxing, modern, and well kept venue. The hosts Ronnie and Yolande were very hospitable and willing to advise on activities./attractions to visit. Friendly service from staff, and good "chanpagne" breakfast.

Room Tip: Ponciana suite is the "Honeymoon suite", and has a great view from the balcony.

We stayed at Ponciana for three nights. Ronnie and Yolande are excellent hosts and have established a wonderfully friendly, comfortable and relaxing place to stay. Ronnie has a wealth of knowledge on the area and places of interest.

Steven and I wouldn't hesitate in recommending Ponciana to anyone who is looking to stay in the area.

A very pleasant safe and clean place to stay close to Pretoria and Joburg, yet already in the mountains. The owner helps organize your time and is always happy to help realize any idea. Perfect for a weekend break or even a longer trip into the beauties of Gauteng.

Room Tip: As far as I can judge all rooms are similar - and have a swimming pool facing terrace.

I remember the day Ronnie and Yolande swapped gray, cloudy Belgium for the eternally blue-skyed South Africa about 5 years ago (we know Ronnie already since almost 40 years). The brand-new guesthouse they started in Hartbeespoortdam exceeded by far our wildest dreams. This is more than pure luxury : it's perfection. If heaven exists... it must be here. Nice rooms, splendid swimming pool, luxurious champagne breakfast, tranquil neighbourhood and above all... a very warm hospitability. After a few days, after a trip in the region we spontaneously said : let's go home... meaning the Ponciana guesthouse. There are so many excursions and attractions nearby that you can easily spend several weeks over there without any duplicate excursion. The number of splendid hiking trails is countless.
We booked also a 5-day trip through Botswana to the Victoria Falls in Zimbabwe. Waw... this was an intensive trip ! Perfectly organised, car driven by Ronnie (Yolande also went with us), we really had absolutely nothing to worry about. We not only saw the classical must-see attractions, but experienced also how real life is in those countries. And Ronnie's one-day trip to the Pilanesberg Park is really a must-do. Ronnie offers a full day (6 to 18 h) personalised trip, including a splendid lunch on a perfect picknick spot. He visited the park already so often, that he knows almost every rock, tree or animal, even every pothole in the road. No way you would be able to see so much animals on yourself or even with classical guided tours. Anyway, our 18 days stay at the Ponciana guesthouse was one of our best holidays ever. We will certainly be back.
Inconveniences or annoyances in this guesthouse : none. I mean it.
And believe me, I did not write this review because we know eachother for many years. I mean every word of this review.

Room Tip: The Ponciana suite has an incredible 180° view on the Hartebeespoort Lake, with an unforgettable sun...

In our two month, 28 location exploration of South Africa, nothing matched the hospitality, charm, comfort, views and incredible breakfasts of Poinciana Guesthouse. Both Ronnie and Yolande are perfectionists dedicated to providing their guests with the best experience imaginable. They are gracious and vivacious hosts whose knowledge of the area was extremely helpful to us. It was with regret when it was time to move on and we wished our stay had been more than three days.

Room Tip: The honeymoon suite has incredible sunset views of Hartbeespoort Dam.

Our opportunity to stay there was a happy coincidence, and we loved every minute of our stay. Ronnie made us feel very welcome, he and Yolande are warm, helpful and friendly hosts.

The accommodation itself is in a lovely location above Hartbeespoort dam, with a breathtaking view. The house is central, with easy access to shops, restaurants and all the sights, even the airport - close to all the places you want to visit in a quiet, undisturbed neighbourhood.

Breakfast time is a special occasion, with fantastic conversations on a deck that has the most amazing vista.

I would strongly recommend Ponciana as a preferred place to stay.
