Amper Bo Guest House \ Accommodation in Riviera

Amper Bo Guest House Riviera

In case you have wondered, “Amper Bo” means “almost on top”. It was named by the first owner of this stately property, a former mayor of Pretoria, because the original old English styled mansion was built against the Riviera Hill, which overlooks Pretoria. The hill is still a protected nature reserve.

“Amber Bo” is easily accessible and a short distance from historical landmarks, the National Zoological Gardens, Union Buildings, main shopping centres, hospitals, bus routes and major highways. Situated in a scenic street and a peaceful and attractive residential area, you will experience being at home with old friends, and will soon feel the need to return time and time again.


Our upmarket accommodation consisting of well equipped and attractively decorated bedrooms, includes daily service. Each room is furnished with television, refrigerator and mini-coffe-bar facilities. Fixed air-conditioning appliances also provide for hot as well as cold weather. All rooms are en suite.
