    Enjoyed my stay at the guest house, will definitely return. The guest house however needs to answer their phone, struggled to get through to the reception whilst trying to confirm my booking. The garden is to die for and the breakfast was delicious. Would definitely...More

    Good morning Thank you for this wonderful review. We enjoyed your stay with us and hope to see you again.

    Comfortable, clean, quiet and well run guest house. The facilities are old (read huge bath tub and management follow up) and new (excellent wifi) where they matter most. I'll be back. The proximity to all of Pretoria's business hubs and eateries also helps.
