Positive Reviews

A satisfying breakfast

Tea Garden, the on-site restaurant, serves a tasty breakfast which guests enjoy tucking into every morning. It’s nicely prepared and sets guests up for a busy day ahead.

Beautiful garden

Spending time enjoying the hotel’s garden is one of the highlights of a stay here, guests report. The grounds are nicely kept and provide a peaceful space in which to unwind or socialise with other guests.

Convenient location

For the most part, guests find the hotel’s location adequate for their needs. It’s situated in a quiet residential part of Pretoria and guests are able to reach the places they want to visit easily enough.

Negative Reviews

The hotel needs better maintenance

According to feedback, there is a feeling that the hotel as a whole needs better general maintenance. Amenities such as air conditioning and bathroom fixtures and fittings don’t always work well and guests mention that the rooms could do with a refresh of the décor.

Could be cleaner

Guests feel that the hotel would benefit from a higher standard of work from the housekeeping staff. At times, the rooms and public areas don’t appear to have been cleaned thoroughly enough, which is a little disappointing.The pool is often reported s being a bit murky and unappealing.

Beds uncomfortable

It appears that the beds are in need of some attention. Guests comment that it can be hard getting comfortable on the mattresses because they are worn and make noises when moving around. The pillows and bedding are reportedly also lacking in comfort.
