This was my third time staying at the Menlyn Boutique over the last year and again it was an excellent experience. This stay was 6 weeks long and I have to say that Jafta and the rest of the staff (Keneth, Ronald, Cecil, Kabelo, Blessing, Ben, Marc, Patrick, Klaas, Ryan and all the others) made the hotel feel like a...

I stayed for one night after a meeting with a client and his attorneys. The boutique hotel is fantastic and very clean and comfortable. The room bar was complimentary and the range of teas and coffee was fantastic.

My wife and I stayed at the Menlyn for two nights in February. The room was large and reasonably comfortable, though I found the bed a bit too firm (and I like firmer beds) and the layout awkward. There is road noise since the hotel is close to the highway but that didn't bother us (maybe due to the jet...

I stayed at this hotel for one night on a business trip. They ‘lost’ my booking somehow; luckily there was a room available. The room was a bit cold, the entire room is tiled and the couches are leather, so it doesn’t feel very cosy. But the worst thing was the horrible horrible room service food. I ordered a toasted...

We booked a night in this hotel after agreeing to meet some friends in Pretoria for the day. It's a shame the hotel isn't as centrally located as we'd hoped but it's relatively cheap to get an uber here there and everywhere so not worth marking the hotel down. The room was very private and cosy with a good selection...
