About Birdwood Guest House
Built in 1903 for Mr. Heyes of Melrose House fame, Birdwood is one of the oldest remaining manor homes. Nestled in the hills surrounding Pretoria, the suburb of Hatfield provides a refuge from the urban hustle of the capital. Within this Jacaranda lined setting, stands a gracious villa, a landmark of elegance and tranquility dating from the turn of the century.
The doors of Birdwood Guest House are open to discerning travellers seeking a home from home in the classic style. Soaring moulded ceilings, period wooden doors and windows, stained glass, antique furniture and an imposing staircase give the charming Birdwood interior a warm glow; all of which is jealously protected and pampered by the Birdwood Team.
Every en-suite bedroom is individually designed and decorated to suit the classical style of the period; some of them situated around the pool in the lush estate gardens surrounding the old Manor House. All are equipped with aircon, under-floor heating, lockup safe satellite TV with video channel, laundry service, telephone, fax and e-mail facilities, mobile phone rentals are available.
