I stayed in this traditional house for three weeks whilst working in South Africa. Close to many embassies and the Union Buildings are not far away, and it's a short distance from shops/restaurants in Hatfield. Very friendly and amenable staff - Florence and the team were happy to respond to email requests. Security guys also very helpful and were happy...

Lovely old house with quality finishes in the room Lovely old furniture. Gardens are beautiful and full of birds. Staff very friendly and helpful. A gem of a place in the middle of Pretoria - easy access to everywhere.

This one night booking was out of necessity rather than being chosen for relaxation. Having lost my UK passport in the environs of Durban I then discovered that my nearest Consulate was in Pretoria. Our wonderful Bed and Breakfast hosts in Durban contacted Birdwood as it was very near the British High Commission. Santie and Florence at Birwood looked after...

During the last 10 years, I have stayed at the Birdwood seven or eight times: I have stayed there while working in Pretoria, I have stayed there with my adult children, and I have stayed there with my significant other. In each instance, the owners have gone above and beyond. For example, during my last stay, which was in August...

We stayed at Birdwood for four nights - what a lovely property! Our room was spacious, comfortable and quiet, the gardens were beautiful and the staff were friendly and helpful. Meals were served in the main house, which oozes colonial charm - we had breakfast every morning and dinner on two evenings - all the food was delicious and beautifully...

Really nice place. Reception friendly and professional, rooms spacious and warm, and the furniture and bed of notable quality. Staff made breakfast half an hour before normal time to accommodate my early departure. Altogether a five star experience

My mother and I were travelling in Pretoria, going to the embassy and we stopped by this gorgeous B&B hoping we could get a place to sit and grab a quick breakfast. We were greeted and treated with so much care from the security guard outside all the way in to our table. We had a scrumptious breakfast and afterwards...

Stayed at the room "Ostrich" which was clearly a very good choice. Very helpful staff that arranged local travel and provided interesting tips. Breakfast and evening meals were really nice. Good value for money and a homely place in a big city.

After being met at the airport by the guest house driver, We were warmly welcomed by our wonderful hostesses and made to feel immediately at home. Our room was clean, spacious and very comfortable. Dinner was pleasant and having lunch in the garden was a real treat. In sum, we were so pleased not to have gone to one of...

Previous business trips having been spent in hotels which ranged from terrible to average but dull, Birdwood was a worthwhile experiment. The hotel is two blocks from the Hatfield Gautrain station and bus station and a block from the University of Pretoria. The main house is looking a little faded, but the rooms and gardens are well furnished and comfortable....
