The Lakes Boutique Lodge: Luxurious and safe accommodation

The team of the Lakes Lodge is very helpful and I really enjoyed my stay. We used the Lodge apartments to stay at the Lodge while relocating with our children and we had everything that we needed for our stay at the Lodge. I would recommend this lodge as it is very safe for families and in the Eastern suburbs of Pretoria.

Very quiet and peaceful surroundings
High security - I felt very safe
Nice place to play golf or tennis
Ideal as a stop-over destination when traveling to Kruger or Cape Town
Close to Gauteng highways and Gautrain stations
Close to restaurants and shops
Close to German school and embassy
Very spacious rooms

Casta Diva, Nina Park: Bed & Breakfasts

The best search tool is Google Maps
This is a General tip e.g %Lhttp://goo.gl/maps/Q7afw}BnB in pretoria east
or BnB in Pretoria Central allows you to be nearer your destinations. Remember that Centre and East i.e Eastwood - Hatfield is the main Diplomatic and academic areas.

another useful site is [http://www.bbapt.co.za/map.aspx]BNB Assn of Pretoria-Tshwane there map in liasion with Google above gets you well located.

I opt for BnB in Pretoria , if you're not on business because it allows you to meet locals and get inside information. maybe change from central to South to West then you get a birds eye view of the True Pretoria/Tshwanian perspective. The Metro name change with street b]name changes in Central area reflects the progress over the past two decades..

Casta Diva was my Neighbour, when ther area had only a handful of home soon after we built on a newly proclaimed township. This BnB had an amazing view nortwards, and behind, a pleasant stroll to see Southwards
they also have an interactive price indicator
Good for people going to Rosslyn, Onderstepoort areas, quiet base for day trips

Centurion Lake Hotel: Hotel on lake / near shopping centre

Overlooking the Centurion Lake, this is a full service luxury hotel in the heart of Centurion. The peaceful setting of this hotel has a very good location.
single occupation has a very high price was over R1200 for a single and approx R800 per person sharing.
You dont need to take meals at the hotel, there are lots of restaurants close to this hotel.

SunsetView Guesthouse: Friendly B&B

Comfortable rooms
Excellent breakfast
Great views
Friendly and helpful hosts

The views over the city of Pretoria - at sunset and at surise are wonderful.
We particularly enjoyed Castle Lagers on the terrace!
Renee arranges pickup and drop off at J'burg airport (and elsewhere I'd guess), and is also able to help with sightseeing.
The gardens at Sunset view are lovely - especially the world's biggest dutchman's pipe! and many lovely Jacarandas

The Farm Inn: African opulence

While we did not stay in the hotel, we went on the game drive and had coffee. High quality service, particularly from the game ranger who was exceptionally knowledgeable. Went way over time to ensure we saw everything.

Cuddle a lion cub, walk (in safety) and view the lions, join a game drive and see a variety of carnivores, all within a few 100m of the hotel!

Cranes Nest Guesthouse: Watch out

I was in Pretoria for business for 2 Weeks in March and we booked this Hotel as it was within walking distance from the offices we were visiting. The Hotel was not really up to expectations. We arrived on a Sunday, when we reached the Hotel their was absolutely nobody of the staff their and we found our keys were left on the dinner table, in addition to that we had to wait for about an hour until our rooms were made up. The guest rooms are average overall the location is good though and within walking distance to the Brooklyn mall. My first shock came when I found their was no AC in the room which was very strange and we were not told about it beforehand. Second and third shock was that it was clearly advertised on their website that they have internet access & DSTV in the rooms which was not the case, so too bad if you need to check out your mail ! unless you want to log in through a dial up account using the hotel owners account.......during our stay, we were a bit lucky because everyday their were customers coming in with guaranteed bookings and finding no rooms, I witnessed about 5 cases.

Cleanliness of the rooms was terrible, towels or bed sheets are not changed unless you ask! We usually leave the hotel early in the morning and come back about 4.30 PM and you would find all windows in the room open and all kind of bugs you would imagine and the fun part is there are no hotel staff to help you out at that time.

The ssourrounding area was great, very safe and close to the Brooklyn mall.

1010 Clifton B&B: Spartan Accommodation

It is rather sparse with no baths in the single rooms, but it does have a special room for the disadvantaged. Cash only payments. No swimming pool. OK for a night, or if you have a large family and want to do your own cooking and use it for a base while visiting the area.

Liza's Cottage: Convenient Guest House

Breakfast is good and will set you up for the day. Although the rooms are a little cramped, the service is friendly and welcoming, even if you arrive at midnight from the airport.

There is a small swimming pool in the back garden. It is adjacent to the hospital and has it's own back gate to the hospital.

Swansen's: Twenty Years On!

On the morning of our second day in Sandton, we decided to use the telephone book in our room to see if we could contact some old friends from our days in Zambia. Although we had heard though the grapevine that they too had left and emigrated south to the Joburg area, we had not had any contact since we had left Africa 20 years before. There, in the phonebook, was someone who matched their name! We gave them a call and it was them, our old friends Ken and Marieke. Naturally, it took some talking to convice them that it really was us!

At the end of the conference, and after my rental car had been delivered, our friends showed up at the centre and we followed them to their house where we had a great time catching up on two decades worth of news! These people had actually attended our wedding in Luanshya, Zambia!!

Eskom Conference Centre: Nature at Your Doorstep

One of the nice things about the Conference Centre was its location overlooking the open savannah towards Joburg. This photo shows my wife beside a young Acacia tree with the view from our room out over the plain towards the city skyline. There was a constant breeze blowing off the flat lands, warm in the day and a little cooler in the evenings!

The grounds included many walking trails out into the surrounding landscape, along with small lakes and ponds. We both had a great time winding down on these walks as we kept our eyes peeled for different types of birds. On these walks we managed to identify a Weaver bird nest in a willow tree, Black-Headed Heron, Red-Knobbed Coot, White Breasted Cormorant and plenty of Sacred Ibis with their long curved beaks!

The Swansen Residence: With Friends!

Our friends had both worked extremely hard since moving to South Africa, with Ken now running his own light trucking business and working long hours. Always handy with his hands, and a real Afrikaans bushman, Ken knows how to do things himself, as does his wife! We were amazed at their home and how they had made it into a little bit of paradise in their backyard! Still, this is the outskirts of Joburg so you have to be surrounded by a wire-topped fence, sliding electric gate, dogs and double-locked doors with burglar bars on the windows!

It was really great just to sit in either their living room or out by the pool as we sipped on our drinks and got caught up on 20 years worth of news. We also ended up spending our final night in South Africa here at the end of our 2-week rental car drive through the Drakensbergs, Kruger National Park and KwaZulu-Natal.

Eskom Conference Centre: Private Lodgings in Sandton

The Eskom (Electricity Commission of South Africa) conference centre at Sandton was a sprawling complex of two storey housing blocks centred around large conference rooms, a dining hall and an outdoor swimming pool and entertainment complex. The rooms were fairly small but were clean and comfortable, and the price was not too steep either as I remember.

Sandton itself was only a few miles away and there was a large multi-level shopping mall located there, with all kinds of speciality stores just like in any Western mall. The conference organizers went out of their way to put on a great Braai (BBQ) and entertainment for the conference guests from all over the world. The photo shows me in front of our ground-level room.
