About Amper Bo Guest House

In case you have wondered, “Amper Bo” means “almost on top”. It was named by the first owner of this stately property, a former mayor of Pretoria, because the original old English styled mansion was built against the Riviera Hill, which overlooks Pretoria. The hill is still a protected nature reserve.

“Amber Bo” is easily accessible and a short distance from historical landmarks, the National Zoological Gardens, Union Buildings, main shopping centres, hospitals, bus routes and major highways. Situated in a scenic street and a peaceful and attractive residential area, you will experience being at home with old friends, and will soon feel the need to return time and time again.


Our upmarket accommodation consisting of well equipped and attractively decorated bedrooms, includes daily service. Each room is furnished with television, refrigerator and mini-coffe-bar facilities. Fixed air-conditioning appliances also provide for hot as well as cold weather. All rooms are en suite.

Bed and Breakfast Units:
• 3x double rooms with double bed
• 2x single rooms with single bed
• 1x double room with two single beds (twin room)

Self catering units:
• 1x one bedroom self catering apartment
• 1 x two bedroom self catering apartment

Student / long term accommodation (fully furnished self catering units):

We provide conference facilities that seat up to 15 people, as well as additional venue hire for our dining area. Although the setting with its “log cabin” surroundings makes one feel as though they are miles away from the city, we are only just a few minutes away from Pretoria CBD, shopping centres, hospitals and highways.
