Contact info

The Diplomat Guesthouse is a 4-star guesthouse situated in Arcadia, the historical old eastern suburb of Pretoria. Arcadia Street is a wooded lane which also houses several embassies. The turn-of-the-century, gracious Victorian manor, with its high, pressed steel ceilings and wooden floors, has a tranquillity and sophistication which is echoed in the tasteful colonial interiors and the superb personalised service provided by the owner and hostess, Marga Hofmeyr.



The Guesthouse overlooks a peaceful, well-established, shaded garden watched over by magnificent, century-old Jacaranda trees inhabited by a profusion of indigenous birds. The garden extends to secret hideaways where solitude and privacy can be found for moments of quiet reflection.



The Diplomat is within easy reach of the Union Buildings, universities and hospitals. It is also no more than a ten-minute walk from a variety of restaurants, international sporting stadiums, the Pretoria Art Gallery, shopping centres, theatres and churches.
