5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2010

I was pleasantly surprised at the level of comfort and luxury considering the rate paid for the accomodation. The gardens are just as beautiful. I would certainly stay there again.

Beautiful, out of the way yet close to Johanessbery and the airport. Do try to arrive at the accomodations before dark as the street lighting and signs can be difficult to read. I only wish we could have stayed several days since it was soo relaxing after our long flight.

Well, what a better way to start a holiday in South Africa than to stay at Charlton House at Accommodation @ Van's. The accommodation is superb....it is of excellent size and very well maintained by the present owner. The location of the property is ideal for travelling to Centurion Supersport Park for the Cricket and for sightseeing. It offers secure accommodation in a quiet area. It is easy to find and within easy reach of Johannesburg Airport. Toy Meyer and his family made both my friend and myself very welcome. I would, therefore, have no hesitation in staying at Charlton House again or recommending it as a place to stay.

There is no heading for 'son travelling with father to see a cricket Test Match' but that is what we were doing. We stayed at Van's for a week and lifts to and from the cricket were provided by the Meiers (at a price) and, when they had gone away for Christmas, they organised another company to collect and drop us. If you don't want to hire a car, then at least until the modern train system being built is in operation, staying somewhere secure and comfortable like Van's is probably a better option than Pretoria hotels where the transport costs will be higher. We were able to barbecue (braai) and relax by the pool with (yet another!) beeer after the game each day. A trip to Pretoria was arranged by the Daugher of the house, Alicia, at home from Uni. A first rate experience for sport - or for anyone wanting away from soul-less city centre hotels.

Stayed @Vans for three nights whilst touring South Africa following the England cricket team in their ODI series. Vans was the perfect location to use as a base for both nearby SuperSports cricket ground in Centurion, but also not too far from Jo'burg. Very well furnished rooms, and particularly nice lounge, kitchen, with counter/bar and also a dining table. Unfortunately it was too cold to try out the pool.
Run by very welcoming and helpful Toy Meyer and her family - they were happy to arrange accompanied sight-seeing trips and also travel to/from the cricket and other nearby bars (Ridgeback Village is a particularly good sports bar).
Would definitely recommend staying in Vans.

I'vre been stay at Van's hotel for 7 month for business purpose and stay at the Meyer family. The place was cozy and hommy, and the hospitality was really excellent. It's kind difficult to find such comfortable place at Centurion, but once I'm staying there i would not try to find another place. Everything was excellent, the services, the neighborhood and most of all the charm and most welcoming from Meyer Family. They will help you at anytime...

For next visit or if there's any colleagues come to South Africa, i would definitely recommend this place to everybody. All you have to do just bring the lugage, and you can find all amenities and hospitality just like 5 star hotel. Thank you very much Toy and Kloos for your kind, hopefully we can meet again. Keep Well!

While in Pretoria for business, I had a wonderful stay at Accommodation@Van's. Koos and Toy Meyer are the most friendly and accommodating hosts, they assisted me in every way possible, and really went the extra mile. The apartments are very beautifully furnished, and well equipped. I also enjoyed the peaceful gardens. I will definitely be back!
