        It was very secure and in a safe place

        Did the job, accommodation near to airport and was ok to arrive late at night.

        Rooms just about clean but not particularly secure. Couldn't get out of the hotel on the Sunday morning as there was no security to open the gate. A sign as to how to get in and out early / late at night would be useful.

        Well situated,next to all shopping centers.Friendlly staff and reception.good value for money.Place accessable to people with disabilities.We intend staying at Purple Guest House on our next visit to PRETORIA.....breakfast too good

        Limited tv Channels

        A clean bed. Attention to bring a (standing) fan because the ceiling fan didn't work. Pleasant and polite receptioniste.

        Equipment and furnishing out of date. (5 pieces) chewing gum in the shower.Handle of hot shower fell off. Bed lamp near your bed but no connection on lighting system. Opportunity to choose between two rooms: one the light didn't work, the other the fan didn't work. For a overnight stay it's o.k.

        Good service

        Uncomfortable matress, dripping shower

        The sense peace and I had an opportunity to pay attention to my partner. I loved the beds chairs and the wardrobe. Your reception and breakfast areas were as well magnificent

        The cosmetic cabinet & mirror in the bathroom was a little higher for my partner to see herself. Don't we all get attracted to mirrors? If you place a mirror anywhere, it must then be accessible. Is it possible to have an fm radio in the rooms?

        Fair price for very basic accomodation, in a not very central location. You will have what you need: a clean bed, a shower and a TV, a small swimming pool, full stop. I was taking flying lessons at Wonderboom Airport, which is a comfortable 10 mins drive only. Decided to stay 4 instead of 2 nights.

        It is very basic. Don't expect luxury. Not easy to find.

        The breakfast was great.

        I didn't get goodies such as shampoos,foam baths etc and was not happy about it.

        No service! No communication - could not book out and had not had breakfast by 8h30 on day of departure!

      • Couple

        very quiet area. Lots of parking space. Good if you don't want to spend time in the hotel but just need somewhere to sleep

        Was surprised to read other reviews which said the staff was friendly- this was not my experience. I felt as if I was intruding- not cosy at all. The rooms are comfortable but in need of updating as it is a bit damp. The breakfast was ok. The location not fantastic unless you have a car and a satnav to get you there. All in all not too bad if you want a basic no frills quick stop place to stay

        Spent only 10 hours there (6 sleeping). Did enjoy breakfast.

      • Older travelers

        Comfortable rooms, good service and an excellent breakfast selection - very filling

        Personale gentile, presenza connessione internet

      • Older travelers

        The staff seemed nice and attentive, the bed room was big enough for a one or two night stay and the double bed was comfortable, the breakfast was more than adequate, the fact that's included in the price makes the whole package attractive enough to make me come back again if the need arises again.

        However, even with a reasonable price for the stay, the establishment is a bit outdated and in need of refurbishment, mainly bath room showing quite a mould build up on ceiling and corners, the loose bed head board and the night stand lamp not working and the lack of a flexihose hand held shower, is a big draw back when trying to rinse off the body gel or soap foam, in a bathroom with only a shower and no bath tub, where found to be the biggest problems.
