Eagle's Rest Guest House
by Edna de Beer
(Pretoria, South Africa)
View from the Bedrooms
If it’s a hotel with a concierge, waiters, butlers, etc you’re after, pass us by. If you want tranquility and personal attention with all the modern conveniences at your disposal, Eagle’s Rest is where you want to be.
Eagle’s Rest Guest House is centrally located on a hill in the tranquil suburb of Kilner Park, conveniently close to the major N1/N4 interchange linking all the provinces.
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 toward the ancient Magaliesberg Mountain Range. Relax in our guest lounge with lovely view and a cosy fireplace. 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 Pygmy 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.
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!
