Just marvellous
What a marvelous place to stay in near Pretoria’s CBD and just 200 meters away from the Union Buildings’ gardens. The room was very clean and tidy and full of all the required facilities to suit both business and leisure travellers. I really enjoyed my stay for twelve nights in this peaceful and quiet place and I wish it was one complete year instead!! On top of that, the hosts were also very kind, friendly and helpful (thanks Piet and Elize very much). Definitely, would stay again there again if I’m visiting Pretoria in the future.
