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.
