Stayed here for two nights during a business trip and I can honestly say this is one of the best B&B’s I have ever stayed at. The room was large, airy, modern and had a super comfortable bed with a luxurious en-suite bathroom. The whole place was tastefully decorated and the staff went out of their way to accommodate us. Breakfast was the cherry on the cake. We will definitely be back and highly recommend The Purple Turtle guesthouse to anyone staying in Pretoria :)

I regularly stay at Purple Trumpet when visiting Pretoria for business.

Herewith the positive and negatives -

1. Well located in the upmarket suburb of Waterfkloof.
2. Private and secure parking.
3. Hotel is modern and spacious with some nice outdoor areas.
4. Good free wifi.
5. Rooms are well appointed with everything you need - room safe, air conditioning etc.
6. Staff friendly and helpful. Check-in and out always smooth and rooms always ready.
7. Great restaurant area with comfortable chairs, quality finished and lovely verandah - better than most other guest houses.

Negatives:
1. Breakfast is a bit of a hit and miss. You are sometimes asked to fill in a card the previous day with your choice of breakfast, however, the kitchen often does not bring what you have ordered.
2. Rooms are not very big by South African standards. They are not tiny, just not very spacious. (They may have some bigger ones.) This does not bother me personally as I don't spend much time in the room.
3. Bathrooms are somewhat tight. They (at least the ones I have stayed in) do not have windows or extractor fans so I find them a bit stuffy.

Overall a great property and I will definitely continue staying here when I am in Pretoria.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay. We always appreciate any feedback that we receive. We have noted your comments regarding the breakfast and endeavour to improve the breakfast service. We do have different sized rooms, and I would suggest that you request an executive room for your next stay, subject to availability. There are two rooms that have no extractor fans in the bathroom, the rest of the bathrooms does have, these two rooms, unfortunately, cannot be fitted with extractor fans due to the structure of the building.

We hope that we will see you again in the next future, and thanks again for your feedback.

Very good quality price relation.
Clean and well located.
It’s a very small guest house and the service is limited, but if you are tired of people and elevators and lobby and parkings this is a very good choise.
