Dear cuteeccentriclady, Thank you for writing a review about your recent stay with us.

This hotel has a great deal of Olde Worlde charm. The staff are extremely willing, but there the story seems to end. Because I had several concerns, I decided to chat with the manager before writing this review but, apart from defending the frigid temperature of my room, he seemed generally disinterested to be hearing "more of the same". I...

Beautiful stay at the Lemon Studio, a self-catering cottage offered by the Farmhouse Hotel. Check-in was effortless and easy, even in the midst of load shedding. The self-check-in process is so simple and convenient - even though we were graciously escorted to our cottage. The cottage itself is breath taking at first glance, and definitely lives up to all expectations,...

From the moment we checked in, we felt this hotel was indeed a special place. The check in process was simple and the welcome exceptionally warm. We loved our room no 7 as it had everything we could have wished for. TV was very small though as you couldn't really see the picture from the bed but that was minor....

I've been very surprise, what a great Hotel, easy to find, clean, lovely hotel staff and an excellent collection of memorable pieces. The rooms are very large, some are upstairs. The upstairs rooms have a narrow staircase and it is quiet difficult when you carry luggage, but there is a porter available. The only negative experience I had is the...

I have stayed there a few times on business trips and a short stay with my family. Absolutely amazing grand old dame, contrasted with young vibrant and friendly staff, led by their captain-manager Charl. Rooms are spacious. Most rooms have beautiful views over the Langebaan lagoon. In winter, you will find the fireplace warming the restaurant for breakfast, lunch and...

I am giving this hotel an average rating, although my husband would probably disagree and go for poor. The setting, the building and the furnishings are beautiful, but we were there in the dead of winter and the rooms are absolutely freezing - as in lying-in-bed-shivering freezing. Our room had a little stove, but most of the wood provided was...
