“A cut above”
Reviewed 23 November 2013

I have been staying in this hotel on a regular basis since 1993. It succeeded in maintaining its high standards, hospitality and professionalism. No request is too much for the excellent and motivated staff. Breakfasts are great, all day coffee and tea as well as tempting biscuits are available all day, and happy hour in the early evening is pure indulgence with fresh savoury snacks and good SA wines. The rooms/suites are comfortable and tasteful; the swimming pool sparkling with drinks and suntan lotion; the terrace and gardens perfectly cared for.
This hotel is a must!

Room Tip: The stable is charming, the big house at the end is enormous, the rooms are all charming with terrac...

Stayed for three nights and had sitting room, kitchen/diner, bedrrom and bath. Vast. Breakfast is good but very meaty. Staff friendly. Lots of hot water for deep baths. Good location for embassies and rugby. You can eat in or order takeaways in. Very flexible. Free happy hour 5 to 7pm. Pleasant gardens. 15 mins free wifi a day, though the bandwidth is a bit thin. All in all a good place to stay.

A large group of us stayed here for about 6 days. The staff was very helpful and made every effort to insure that our stay was pleasant. It was like staying in a warm and personal cottage. The manager, Andrea Anderson, made sure every detail was cared for.

The benefits to this hotel are that rooms are large including a little kitchen and table area, they have a washer and dryer you can use, and the reception area is very much like a bed and breakfast. Very communal with some free drinks. The rooms are nice and large but nothing extra special. The staff was top notch as we came in as a huge group and they handled us very well.

This is different from the usual hotel hotels. It is very colonial designed hotel and is in the heart of pretoria. Very open roads around the hotel and is in the are where there are many embassies, so its quite safe. It is very close to the happening Hatfield square.

The breakfast buffet is not the best I have had, but its good.

Stayed on a business trip with colleagues. Excellent reception and other staff, comfortable, relaxing decor and furniture, comfortable spacious en suite bedroom, and excellent breakfast. That is the only meal provided but they will happily phone for take aways from a choice of places. There is both a happy hour and honesty bar and it is great to be surrounded by gardens and greenery.
