Gardening has been a constant thread in Leoné’s life. Her grandmother collected aloes and grew gloxinias and her mother was a compulsive plant collector. In 1995 she decided to turn her passion into her livelihood and today Petal Faire Nursery is a well-known destination for gardeners and plant collectors looking for rare or hard to find exotic and indigenous plants. Many of the plants in the nursery are also featured around Petal Faire Cottage so that they can be enjoyed in a garden setting.


What a wonderful 3 night stay my daughter and I had at Petal Faire Cottage – it was better than being a home away from home! Our cottage was perfectly suited to our needs, and very clean and comfortable. We received very warm hospitality and attention.

An added bonus was the carafe of fresh milk in the fridge ready for our coffee/tea, and the delicious homemade rusks. We were sad to leave, and both wished we could have extended our stay once our business & studies had ended.

Petal Faire Cottage has a very special charm and tranquillity, and we will definitely return if we ever have to travel to Pretoria again. It was also perfectly geographically situated – so quick and easy to get to all of the places we need to go to, including the major highways.

We chose Petal Faire cottage for our niece’s stay in Pretoria from Zimbabwe while she was applying for a visa. The cottage is safe, peaceful, convenient, comfortable, pristine well equipped and was her home away from home for the duration of her stay. Leone and her staff are kind and hospitable hosts. I would recommend staying at this fabulous place to anyone. Thank you for taking great care of my niece!!

Dear Leone

Thank you for Sibongile and your hospitality during my recent stay in one of your cottages.

During my extended stay, the full-size kitchen in my cottage was a welcome feature as well as the largeness of my cottage itself.

The lovely garden outside my cottage was beautiful and calming and made me forget that I was almost in the heart of nearby Hatfield.

Thank you for a lovely stay.

This was my second stay at Petal Faire and it won’t be the last. The property is well situated in the suburbs of Pretoria and very convenient being near medical centres and with easy access to shopping centres. Leoné and her friendly staff immediately make one feel at home. The self catering accommodation is very comfortable, spacious and well equipped. And then there’s the garden. With it’s fascinating collection of unusual and beautiful plants it is a pleasure to stroll around and you can easily forget that you’re in the middle of a large city. If some of the plants take your fancy you can just pop in to the nursery and buy some to take back with you as I did both times. If you’re from ‘out of town’ and need to spend time in the city for a short or long stay, I’d recommend Petal Faire any time. So Leoné, although I hope we don’t need to visit another medical centre in the near future, I do look forward to the next stay. Perhaps it’ll just be for a shopping trip. J

I recently stayed 10 nights at Petal Faire Cottage. There are four self catering units, each tastefully decorated, very clean and serviced daily. Location is superb and parking is safe and close to units. Each unit has a kitchenette and good security. Leoné is a great host and knows how to run this type of establishment. Don’t waste your money on other BnB’s and hotels. Value for money and ticks all the boxes. A must stay.

Petal Faire Cottage is a wonderful place in a peaceful part of the city, very quiet at night. Everything we needed for a five night stay. I was very relaxed and comfortable and will recommend your facilities to anyone looking for accommodation in Pretoria.

Petal Faire Cottage has been a Home away from Home for me since I started visiting South Africa for medical reasons. Apart from the comfort of the accommodation, for those recuperating as I have been, the lush garden with its flowers and birdsong is a healing therapy in itself. This place is an oasis of tranquility amidst the hustle and bustle all around.

Our stay at the cottage was totally amazing. We experienced a great 21 days with Leone and her wonderful staff. The hospitality was beautiful and we immediately felt at home. The space we were in reminded us of our own home – waking up to a natural feeling of fresh air and green garden. Thank you very much for everything. God bless

We stayed at Petal Faire Cottage for a total of four weeks where we enjoyed the kind hospitality of hosts Robert and Leone. The spacious accommodation is conveniently located, close to the main arterials into and around Pretoria, and the train station where the Gautrain originates in Hatfield. We arrived jetlagged from Australia on a Sunday evening, but soon felt at home with Robert and Leone settling us in. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts and this continued throughout our stay. Thank you for your generous hospitality.

Thank you very much for your friendliness. You made us feel right at home. The units were very clean and very comfortable. Thank you for all the trouble you took to make it as comfortable as possible for my family. I would recommend Petal Faire Cottage to anyone and everyone. Thank you for a life time experience!
