4/10 Fair

Not a Placw For Black People.
This place is not Black people. Took time to be let into our room because they thought we did not pay when we had paid in full. Place looks nice at first but when you go into the room you realise everything is broken. Curtain rail, towel rack drawers. Not enough blankets. When we had to leave the host lady was very very racist and rude. I don’t recommend any black person or any person of colour to stay here.

Great place to stay
Home-away-from-Home! Yes you read that right! If you are a classy type of person that needs a cozy & serene place to stay in Pretoria? Then Rest-a-while guest house is the ideal place for you. The place is in a well secured area close to malls and variety of eating areas and places to visit. You can easily take a walk on the streets as residents too walk their dog (s) The room I stayed was sparkling clean like it was newly built before my There’s also a swimming pool in the premises Also there’s cable tv with variety of channels. And hey there’s WiFi with the password at your disposal, meaning you can connect as many devious as you own 😆 Breakfast too was awesome. Ingrid is very accommodating and considerate. Once I forgot to submit my breakfast request form (must submit before 6pm previous day) Ingrid came knocking just to reach out, so thoughtful I must say I got value for my money hence I’m bearing it all out I’ll sure visit again as I plan on exploring Pretoria more

10/10 Exceptional

Extremely Accommodating
Very comfortable, Ingrid is a great hostess and her team Èlizabet and Maria are so willing to make the stay a good one. My boyfriend came to join me unfortunately Ingrid didn't get my reply to her accommodating email as I hit the do not reply button instead of reply. But Ingrid worked her magic, and we were so appreciative for her effort. They have a fabulous pool area which we enjoyed most days. Definitely recommended

Muy buena opción
Hotel perfecto para alejarse del bullicio de Pretoria. Quizás un poco lejos pero muy cómodo y con mucha comodidad. Los dueños del establecimiento muy amables
