Stayed here two nights on my first ever visit to Pretoria. Beautiful, quiet and characterful property located in the middle of the "embassy district" and close to the University of Pretoria. Fully fenced and gated like most hotels in the region. Main building is in an old grand residence. My room on the first floor was large and comfortable with...

This was our last night in South Africa so we wanted something special - and we got it! Set in beautiful gardens, an enormous suite with a bedroom, lounge and kitchenette. A comfortable bed made up for the awful experience on the Rovos rail getting there. We were treated to a large plate of crisps, grapes, nuts and billabong. There...

I stayed at this hotel for five nights on business and would happily stay here again. The rooms are large and contain a small kitchenette with a microwave, refrigerator, kettle, and some dishes. I also appreciated the small dining room table that also doubled as a work place. The wifi through out the hotel was strong and I didn't experience...

I'm a world traveller and there are a few small things that I judge a hotel on. 1) is it clean. Usually reviews will tell you that 2) do the staff make you feel special and at home in their hotel. This hotel achieved both criteria. Indeed, Walter the hotel driver went out of his way to assist me in...
