AM Milner Guest House

Combining the charm of a French Provençal villa with contemporary comfort, AM Milner Guest House is a chic boutique hotel located along a peaceful, jacaranda tree-lined avenue in the upmarket Pretoria suburb of Waterkloof. 

Characterised by the jacarandas that burst into violet bloom in late spring and exclusive private homes favoured by ambassadors, diplomats and other eminent residents, Waterkloof’s graceful surrounds, in close proximity to Pretoria city centre, make it a sought-after destination. 

In keeping with the style of a grand French villa, an unexpected discovery awaits beyond the entrance gates, along a gravel driveway flanked by stately oaks leading up to the main house and a pretty fountain, setting the tone for the gracious hospitality. Tall, fragrant firs border the large estate alongside a manicured lawn, providing the ideal setting for a small function.

Whether looking for an exclusive venue with a touch of glamour for a romantic city break, a corporate short or long-term stay, an executive meeting or intimate function, AM Milner’s sophisticated, yet relaxed residential feel provides a welcome alternative to mainstream hospitality establishments.

Blending luxurious fabrics and quality furnishings with soft hues and hints of metallics, the seven guest bedrooms embody contemporary elegance and warmth. 

Tall, softly draped windows and polished terracotta floors further reflect the French influence, while plush, upholstered headboards, thick throws against crisp white linen and soft pile rugs underfoot create a sophisticated, yet inviting space.
