Our Background

The Inn is located in a small suburb in the East of Pretoria, called Lydiana. The house which became the Inn was built in 1966 by Mr Piet Grobler, grandson of Minister Piet Grobler who served in General Hertzog's cabinet during the 1920s. The farm the Groblers lived on was named after Lydia, Piet's wife. The suburb celebrated it's 50th birthday in 2008 and became part of Greater Pretoria in 1964.

Lydiana had always been a place where guests and friends were welcomed with open arms and a cup of good coffee and so, in this tradition, our Inn will continue to do just that.

Extensive renovations created the ten luxury bedrooms and public spaces and the furniture is mostly heirlooms from the Snyman, van der Walt and Krige families. The proximity of the National Botanical Gardens and the old indigenous trees growing in the Inn's garden ensure that a myriad of bird species and the Bushbabies are permanent residents around the Inn.

Public facilities include:

  • secure parking,
  • a business centre with wireless internet, fax and printer,
  • swimming pool with braai facilities,
  • a library stocked with a wide and wonderful range of books,
  • a cosy dining room with a fireplace,
  • and a furnished patio dappled in sunlight.

The Inn has a live-in operations manager who can assist you with any queries or emergencies.

Water in the guesthouse is heated with gas geysers and glass, paper, plastic and organic waste is recycled. A generator supplies emergency power and the guest house is in the process of converting to solar power. The establishment prides itself in it’s ‘green’ and environmentally friendly efforts.

Area, location & attractions:

Our Inn in Lydiana is centrally located with quick and easy access to the N1 and N4. It is situated on a koppie east of the National Botanical Gardens and is close to the CSIR, University of Pretoria, The Innovation Hub and the Silverton/Wattloo industrial area. The city centre is a quick 7 km away.
