From the moment we arrived we were made to feel welcome in the old South African way. The small guest house has 3 rooms and the front room has a private enclosed porch. The rooms all share a beautifully furnished dining area and small kitchen as well as a similar enclosed porch. The rooms are exceptionally clean, very tastefully furnished... More

There is no better place to stay in Mcgregor than this and one of the best places we have stayed in the world. It has beautiful rooms, with amazing garden and pool.

I stayed here recently for the second time during a business trip. Nicolaas has excelled in offering accommodation of the highest quality - extremely comfortable rooms, a very good breakfast, good recommendations for dinner and service with a smile. All this at a VERY reasonable price. Hope to visit soon again!

There are a few guest houses we stayed in before where everything was perfect. Old Village Lodge is one of them! We stayed here during the last weekend of November 2014 attending a weekend long celebration of a close friend's wedding at Temenos. We were delighted to discover that the Old Village Lodge is right across the road from Temenos!... More

We've visit this stunning B&B in McGregor and stay over for 3 nights. What an experience. Friendly host and clean rooms and the interior of the whole guesthouse is out of the world and the breakfast was 1st class!! A real stunning place and would certainly come back

I wanted to visit Temenos at McGregor for some quiet solo 'down time' between Christmas and New Year. They were fully booked and not knowing the village well, I made some enquiries as to alternative accommodation. The Old Village Lodge across the road came highly recommended and what a fortunate discovery this was. Despite Nicolaas not officially being open to... More

What a wonderful guest house. Gorgeous rooms, lovely public areas and one of the finest gardens in South Africa. Nicholaas was a most helpful and attentive host who provided delicious breakfasts. If you are lucky you will sit in the comfortable lounge enjoying a pre dinner drink to the gentle sound of him playing his piano, fabulous.

We had the most fantastic stay at the Old Village Lodge. Nicolaas was a fantastic host. Before we arrived he recommended the perfect restaurant, and was so accomodating. Our rooms were luxurious, and the breakfast was delicious. We will definitely return.
