Castello di Monte
Ranked #2 of 365 Pretoria B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 February 2014

This is a wonderful venue, not just the rooms but also the kitchen, the relaxed atmosphere and the hospitality. You are very unlikely to have a bad experience here. Great for couples for some time away, great for stays in Pretoria area for any purpose (as long as you have a car to get around).

What a place this was , done out like a Tuscany Villa , 9 rooms all with amazing views and balcony , nothing was too much trouble for the manager , he allowed us to stay on till the evening till we where picked up by our car ,
Very clean and meals are available if needed , plus the breakfast was really good.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good views as we tried them all before choosing what we had

Thank you for a lovely stay. Stayed up till late to check us in,rooms was beautifully decorated and room was very clean and comfortable. They went the extra mile for us. They are situated close to shopping malls,restaurants and main roads. They are big on attention to detail even turn down the beds for a good nights sleep. These people make you feel special at Castello di Monte.

We really enjoyed staying at Castello di Monte. The breakfast was very good and the Staff went out of their way to help us enjoy our stay. It's a very relaxing hotel and has such a gorgeous view over Pretoria. My main recommendation to the Hotel would be to offer better quality toiletries in the bathroom.

20th wedding anniversary evening with my wife in the honeymoon suite
The accommodation was spectacular, the attention of the staff really just right. Thanks Ferdie and Percy.
The food up on top of the world was delicious, as was breakfast the next day.
All in all a lovely way for us to be together in a very special venue
Thanks again

Recently returned from a one night stay. We were pleasantly surprised to be given the honeymoon suite, which was beautiful. We arrived in the afternoon and took advantage of a drink by the pool, beautiful views. From the moment to checking in to checking out, we couldn't fault anything. Dinner and breakfast were excellent, lovely selections on offer. Only one wish, we'd had more than one night to stay. Would certainly recommend to anyone visiting this region, owners/staff all deserve
