The hotel is central providing easy access to most of the places around the CBD of Pretoria and secure safe parking. The employees are friendly and caring. The rooms are spacious and clean. I use this hotel every time I'm around Pretoria for business.

On arrival at reception the attendant was very helpful. He tried his best to access my profile but in vain. He suggested that I try the next day as I should not lose out on points.

The rooms are a bit dated and ageing. The side of the Hotel facing the road is quite noisy with taxis hooting etc. Ask for a room facing the pool Halaal food is an additional R400 over and above the rate for a Dinner, Bed and Breakfast- which is EXHORBITANT!! (it would be more fair to deduct the Bed and...

Rooms very nice and clean. treatment by staff good and respectful. Enjoyed breakfast. Well treated during checking in and check out, my luggage well taken care of. I could not eat dinner because I wanted room service but I was told that my vouched did not cover that, and I accepted.

I often stay in the tsogo/southern sun hotels, especially in Johannesburg and port Elizabeth, where I have come to expect a relatively comfortable stay and pleasant staff. By comparison, the Pretoria hotel falls far short. The food was not good, the restaurant untidy and staff inattentive. My room, was hot and stuffy, and the noisy air conditioner did nothing to...

The two ladies who checked me in were not friendly and welcoming at all. Maybe they had had a bad day. My sleep was rudely interrupted by hooting taxis outside my window. When I had breakfast I almost choked on the fish scales which had not been removed. Horrible!
