Full accommodation information

Ideally located within Pretoria, and yet exuding seclusion, luxury and tranquillity, the Castello di Monte hotel is the perfect stop on your African adventure. This small but charming guesthouse offers boutique accommodation and an abundance of style – both the building itself and the interior décor evokes mid-century Italian charm, from the grand staircases to the plentiful art dotting the walls. Comfortable rooms are equipped with a mini-bar, air-conditioning and underfloor heating.

Relax among Castello di Monte’s exquisitely manicured gardens or take a dip in the beautiful outdoor pool. Dining is a delight here; enjoy South African and European-inspired cuisine either in the main dining room, al fresco on the terrace, or overlooking panoramic views from the terrace.

Close proximity to the train station makes this the perfect place to stop before or after enjoying a luxurious rail experience on Rovos Rail.
