“Best Wedding Venue and/or just a great getaway!”
Reviewed 23 May 2014 via mobile

We hired the entire venue for our wedding! Worth every cent! Food was amazing, rooms, service, cosy atmosphere, fire place burning (got married in winter 2 years ago)! Just a perfect place for a perfect day ! Got compliments of the best wedding ever! Thank you Castello!

Stayed June 2013, travelled as a couple

We had a fantastic time at Castello di Monte!
The beautiful guesthouse with breathtaking views of Pretoria, great food in the private sitting room with a cosy fireplace and superb service made it really a special and memorable stay to celebrate my husband's birthday.
Thank you for making it so special! :)

A small boutique accommodation in the better part of Pretoria. Rooms are very very spacious and well appointed.

The greeting and welcome was well done and personal. The meals were great, all prepared after order, but served in a timely manner. We had dinner and two breakfasts, all very good.

We flew in from the UK and went straight to Castello. We loved this guest house. The room was superb. Large, clean, tidy and with an enormous bed. Our only regret was that we only had one night there. I would wholeheartidly recommend Castello and will stay there for longer next time.
Anything wrong with it ? The Wi-fi was very weak, but worked if you sat on the toilet !!

As I frequently travel and stay over at a number of hotels, I can confidently say that the luxury and extravagance one might expect from a boutique hotel, have been more than met. Thank you to OJ and his highly skilled and welcoming team for a fantastic weekend, we will definitely be returning.

Thank you very much for such a wonderful experience. When we entered the magnificent entrance, we knew that we were in for a treat. We were greeted with juice and shown to our room in person. We are not quite sure why, but we were given the Presidential Suite! It was truly the grandest room we have ever stayed in.

We had a private dinner on the terrace and the next morning we had a very satisfying breakfast, included in the charge.

This is truly a place for relaxing and we plan to recommend it to all of our friends! The manager and all of the staff made this a perfect experience.

Room Tip: We had a look in some of the other rooms and honestly, they are all beautifully appointed.
