Fantastic little inn with only 14 rooms. If you are looking for some peace and quiet this is the place. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The breakfast each morning was well done. I had the dinners they offer several nights and some were fantastic but others were just ok.

This is one of the best places to stay in Pretoria. The Italian-style villa sits on a hill overlooking the town, with a small pool and great gardens. The villa is comfortable but elegant, and the staff are quite excellent. They will help you with anything you'd like to do in the area.
