Bwelani Guesthouse is great value for money. It is centrally situated in Pretoria, the accommodation is good, and the breakfasts are a treat. It is a stone throw away from TUKS, and walking distance from Loftus. Nice pool too cool down in, and lovely intimate garden.

Its not every BnB that deserves a standing ovation. This one does. It is my second stay here, and everything is predictably perfect. The entrance is just off Lynnwood road, very convenient without being noisy. And very central to everything. Entering the secure parking you hear the fountain which leads you to the manicured garden, the first sign of an... More

My first time in Pretoria, I enjoyed staying at the Bwelani Guest House while teaching in the local area. The hostess graciously welcomed me and offered me tea, coffee, or juice after a very long flight. During my extended stay Charles, her father, and Kenya, her dog, created a warm and friendly atmosphere in my “home away from home.” The... More

Me and my partner stayed here while doing post grad block weeks this year. The guest house is wonderfully equipped and the hostess was incredibly friendly. The room had all the necessary amenities including A/C, electric blankets and a little bar fridge, but the Wi-Fi signal was pretty weak. The access to a small kitchenette was really nice and the...

This is the BEST guesthouse experience for me, EVER! From very luxurious and spacious rooms or loft apartment to semi-fitted kitchens. My colleagues and I attended a course in Pretoria over several weeks, on and off, and we stayed at Bwelani. The rooms are clean, bedding crisp and very well fitted bathrooms with choice of bath or showers. I liked... More
