We were returning home to Knysna having spent a few days in Cape Town, and made a stop at the Old Village Lodge in McGregor. My husband and I have stayed here a number of times and love the lodge. Nicolaas is the perfect host, his breakfasts are superb and the Lodge is so comfortable. The beautiful gardens have been... More

Old Village Lodge more than met our expectations for our short break in McGregor. Our room had a fantastically comfy bed and a great shower (the only drawback might be that the rooms share a communal drinks-station rather than having their own kettles - slightly inconvenient for the first cup of the day, but otherwise fine). The garden is immaculate... More

There really is only one place to stay in McGregor and it makes the trip to this town so worthwhile. Old Village Lodge is everything that you want from a B&B: home from home, peaceful, relaxing, and very very comfortable. Nicolaas is the perfect host. He is cheery, well versed on all there is to do in the area and... More

I visited McGregor over a very busy weekend. I got Room 1 with the large Victorian bath which was just great with plenty of hot water. The lodge is situated in the most beautiful gardens with lots of bird life and water features. They just redid the swimming pool and it looks beautiful and I got my daily exercise after... More

Over the weekend I took myself off back to McGregor - it's been a while and I needed a dose of chill and comfort. Old Village Lodge was even more fabulous than last time. The lovely pool has been beautifully repainted and is a deep cool blue (much needed in the 35 degree heat) , the rooms refreshed (not that... More

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. The breakfast prepared by our host Niclaas was sumptuous and delicious. The best words to describe this lodge is that everything is perfect, from our friendly host Niclaas,... More

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
