Very pleasant and comfortable stay during a short business trip. Very well located for any business on the eastern part of Pretoria. Of course no big conference facilities, but just a perfect atmosphere for serious and intimate face-to-face talks. Very good total balance of exclusivity, individualist issues as well as cosy atmosphere. Very well looked after with very good shape...

I am in my second week of a three week stay. Where else can you stay so long in a guest house and still feel at home? Francois and Petro provides excellent home away from home accommodation: a thatched roof, double storey in a quiet street in a secured area. Some rooms are smaller, but most are of more than...

On our African adventure we utilized this family friendly guest house as our base camp. We flew from Johannesburg traveling to Victoria Fall and the Western Cape leaving our luggage and repacking for our shorter trips. Our host and hostess along with their wonderful staff greeted us warmly with each return. Rooms have outdoor space opening to their lovely garden....

We had a simple overnight stay on route to the airport from Kruger. We stayed in the family apartment and it suited us perfectly, very comfortable and well equipped. Breakfast was delicious and freshly cooked. It is the perfect secure and friendly stopover but also perfect for long stay guests who prefer a home from home. We left an item...

Stayed here as a way point before travelling home. Was able to check in early to a very spacious room with bath shower, microwave and fridge. Security is good as it's within a gated compound and has panic alarms (which have never been needed). The breakfast was very nice and so much more than the advertised continental option. FFGH is...

We had a short unplanned visit to Pretoria and had the greatest pleasure in spending time at this guest house. The owners were so helpful and considerate. Wonderful staff. No problem with us leaving at 2.30 am and because we were leaving early they brought us some goodies to take on the road.

We had 24 hours to kill having finished our tour of the bush and needed a base to chill in Pretoria before our flight home. Could not recommend this B&B higher. Very comfortable rooms, excellent gardens and breakfast by the pool. The hosts very obliging with accommodating our travel requirements and the staff super friendly.

Nice place to stay friendly owners very helpful the only thing we would have to complain about was the air conditioning was above the bed so you had it blowing on your heads and a light in your eyes we had to switch it off which made for an uncomfortable night

My family and I stayed here for our final night in South Africa. Having visited Cape Town, Black Rhino Reserve and Sun City we can honestly say this hidden gem put the final icing on the cake. Francois and his staff could not do enough and even gave our 12yr old Daughter her own room. The entire place is spotlessly...
