This is a special retreat for John and I. Our host Nicolaas and the establishment cannot be faulted in any respect. Nothing was too much trouble for him, and the breakfasts he served are scrumptious. The amazing décor and tranquil atmosphere make for the most relaxed breakaway. A must for travellers to the quaint town of McGregor, Thank you

We spent three nights in the Old Village Lodge and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Rooms were all tastefully decorated with a beautiful garden and pool area to relax in. Breakfasts are definitely worth getting out of bed for - fresh fruit salad to start the day followed by Nicolaas' specially prepared cooked breakfasts, which varied every morning. The Old Village...

The title says it all and really captures the three nights I spent in the Old Village Lodge from the 3-5 October. The Old Village Lodge is truly a remarkable guesthouse from the moment you enter until the moment you leave. It is an oasis that provides one with the opportunity to really get away from it all and enjoy... More

Nicolaas, a warm, extremely friendly and enthusiastic host welcomed us on our arrival. We loved our room - the furnishings, kingsize bed, beautiful linen and electric blanket spoke of excellent taste and style. Artistically laid out garden is so beautiful..offering a paceful niche in the shady areas in which to sit and read. As with the garden, the pool area... More

A charming guest lodge with a charming host. Nothing too much bother. Our room was lovely and warm on a cold night. Opening into beautiful gardens. Excellent breakfast. So enjoyed the bottomless tea and coffee station. Nicholas always available to help in any way. We were made to feel looked after and special.. So much more than bed and breakfast

We found Old Village Lodge to be a real luxury home from home! Nickolaas and staff could not be more welcoming and helpful. Our room was extremely clean and comfortable and the breakfasts were way above 5 star status. The garden was absolutely beautiful and so interesting to wander through with quiet places to sit and enjoy. A great experience!... More

Dear Davina and Peter, Thank you so much for your kind review and taking the time to do one. Thank you for the huge compliment on our breakfast. It is so boring to present the same food every morning, so I love to cook something totally different every morning. I am even more happy when guests enjoy it as much... More

I stumbled upon The Old Village Lodge online and called to make an enquiry. Nicolaas was so enthusiastic and super helpful that I simply could not refuse the one room he had left for us. Our stay was absolutely sublime! His attention to detail, the décor, the garden and his breakfasts simply blew us away! We have never had such... More

We were so happy to get a room at Old Village Lodge. We initially wanted to book into Room 3 with the undercover patio, but unfortunately this room was already taken – and had to settle for Room 2. What a beautiful room with its king size bed and top quality Egyptian cotton. Just what we like at my own... More

My wife an I recently stayed at the Old Village Lodge for a night while enjoying a weekend away to McGregor. The lodge is in a beautifully restored 19th century building with oodles of charm. The breakfasts are incredible and Nicolaas spared no effort in making us feel totally at home. The garden is amazing and I'm only sorry we... More

We experienced a very pleasant time at The Old Village Lodge with Nicolaas. The room was bright and tastefully furnished. Breakfast was just what we wanted and our compliments on the croissants, pity we could only manage 1 each. The gardens where also very well laid out and full of colour. Our only negative point - it would have been... More
