“Villa Sterne oh so boring”
Reviewed 6 November 2012

Well attending a wedding at Villa Sterne after years of hearing about this amazing place turned out to be a bit of a damp squid. I felt like I had stepped back into the 70's in Bloemfontein.

Well I never got to stay there, but I walked around beautiful gardens with great Pretoria views and the staff were all extremely friendly and helpful so a big thumbs up to the service.

The food - finger type starters with dinner was fine - but nothing to write home about with chicken kebabs oozing with a sticky sauce - in fact there was enough for 10 more trays all smothering the one tray , so the food was OK. We ordered espressos afterwards which were good.

The wine choice and drinks service were 100% and once again the waiters and servers were really very good.

But the place needs a wake-up injection I am afraid.

Room Tip: I think the rooms must be quite dreamy and the view is amazing.

In addition to the above, the hotel has lovely grounds with an aviary. Also, the chefs prepare wonderful meals, but the best feature of Villa Sterne is the service. Everyone on staff strives to ensure that guests have a pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Ask for room 6 (suite).
