My wife and I recently spent a night in the Old Village Lodge, and so wished that our circumstances allowed a week's stay. It was a wonderful experience spending time in a guest house of outstanding quality: in the breakfast served, the rooms, the beautiful garden and Nicolaas, the friendly and helpful host and cook. We will be back, next... More

My husband, myself and a friend booked into The Old Village Lodge for 3 days. We all participated in a 3 stage race event. What a wonderful experience. The rooms are all beautiful, the garden is breathtaking, the pool is stunning. Nicolaas, the owner, took very good care of us. He served us breakfast before our races and was kind... More

We booked this guesthouse for our long weekend annual mountain bike race. This place, hospitality, gardens and excellent service via Nicolaas will make us return every year and any other weekend when required. Everything is super clean and feels like your own home away from home. Very central located with walking distance 5min to everything in town. We had special... More

This guesthouse is by far the best we have ever visited. Beautiful breakfasts were served every morning, and we loved the seperate coffee room. A luxurious room with comfort and style throughout, with the most beautiful private patio, leading to the garden. We were spoilt by the hospitality of our host, Nicolaas. We will definately visit the charming town of... More

Nikolaas went above and beyond to make us feel comfortable and welcomed. The garden is a sanctuary and the attention to every detail ensured a 'home away from home' experience. Breakfasts are a work of art and the children were accommodated in a relaxed and kind manner.We will be back for more exploration in this beautiful oasis of a town.

We have just returned from one of our best weekend getaways and this was due to the hospitality of Nicolaas. His attention to detail in the guest rooms, care and concern for the guests, delicious breakfasts and scones, and overall generosity continued to amaze us the entire weekend. He is a fund of information on the town and organised our... More

We had a fantastic time at Old Village Lodge. Nicolaas pays special attention to detail - little chocolates in a bowl, fresh milk (in fridge) at the coffee and tea station, scones and coffee at 4pm (with his home-made strawberry jam). A must if you want to be spoilt in McGregor!

Old Village Lodge is certainly the best Guest House I ever stayed in. This landmark property is beautifully restored with so much luxury - no television in the bedrooms which was great! A bonus was the air conditioning in the bedroom - especially in summer! Everything is done with so much detail, from decoration, furniture, art, the crystal bowl with... More
