What a beautiful restored residence...a treasure in Pretoria. The owner, Piet van Biljon, is also a treasure...so incredibly helpful with taxis, routes and maps. Apart from the many steps from the parking area to our accommodation which is not so suitable for elderly people, I must say that the rooms were clean with nice crisp bedding and all that we needed.
