About Eagle's Rest Guest House
Eagle’s Rest Guest House is centrally located on a hill in the tranquil suburb of Kilner Park, adjacent to the Colbyn Wetlands and conveniently close to all major routes to and from Pretoria. We are ideally situated for the business traveller and tourist alike.
You will be welcomed with warm hospitality and shown to your well appointed, comfortable en-suite bedroom with twin / king sized beds and sliding doors opening onto your balcony with a view over the garden. Relax in our guest lounge with lovely view and a cosy fireplace.
All rooms are individually decorated and equipped with remote TV, electronic safes, ceiling fans, heaters and electric blankets for winter nights, tea / coffee station, towels and guest amenities. Configuration: either 1 King Sized or 2 single beds per room. The executive room can be converted into a family room with 1 King Sized and 1 single bed.
Enjoy our beautiful African sunsets and panoramic view from your balcony or from the deck which cantilevers over the side of the hill. Wake up to the birdsong of our regulars who sing their praises to the leafy Bushveld garden where African Pigmy hedgehogs and Slender Mongoose also visit. Take a book from our library to read in a quiet spot under a tree or use the binoculars to identify some of the birds in our indigenous garden.
Breakfasts and Dining
Scrumptious breakfasts are served in the breakfast room or on the deck (weather permitting). Other meals can be served by prior arrangement. There are many fine restaurants in the vicinity where you can tempt your taste-buds or treat yourself to an old-fashioned road house meal, just for fun! To really go back in time visit the drive in theatre on top of Menlyn Mall where you can even book an old Chevy to watch the movies from!
