This was our first accomodation after landing at OR Tambo in February 2013 for our honeymoon. We chose this bed and breakfast as it was en route to Kruger for us and it was in close proximity to the University of Pretoria where I had gone for a semester during college.
Our flight into Jo-burg was earlier in the day so fortunately the owners allowed for us to check in early. The B&B is situated on a quiet side street away from the hustle and bustle, but a short walk to a number of lively bars and restaurants.
The room itself was tastefully decorated and included all the modern conveniences of home. The bed was super comfy and the bathroom was spacious with a nice warm shower. Right outside our door was a nicely kept pool, but we were too tired from our travels to take a dip. The only small issue we encountered was the satelite receiver must have been shared with another room as the channel would randomly change on occasion. I was a little surprised to find that the room did not have an air conditioning unit, but it was in a shaded area with plenty of cross ventilation and a good ceiling fan so the summer heat was never an issue.
The area was very secure and our safety was never a concern. Before we left, the inn keeper made an awesome breakfast that really hit the spot. The breakfast area was especially nice and the breakfast presentation itself was very well thought of as well. All of the staff, from the owners, to the maids and gardeners, and the family Rottweiler, were all very friendly.
The next time I am in South Africa, I will certainly consider another stay at the B&B Hatfield. Good value, convenient location and overall, a very nice place to stay.
