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

We had our third stay at Old Village Lodge recently and most definitely not our last! What a wonderful experience it has been, yet again! Each time the hospitality of the host Nicolaas surpasses itself. From the attention to detail in the rooms and living area, to the scrumptious home made breakfasts and willingness to always assist whether with dinner... More

We took a trip to McGregor mid winter and we received the warmest welcome from owners. The lodge is just too beautiful and cosy. You just have to visit this gem set in the heart of the wine valley. We cannot wait for next visit. It was the perfect break away from our busy lives.

If you're looking for a place where time stands still and appreciate every second with amazing people this is the place to be. This is a piece of heaven not too far from Cape Town where you can break away from modern life and enjoy the relaxing environment of McGregor and the friendly people who live there. A special thanks... More

This is a stunning little B&B - it is clean, modern, well kept and the owners are very welcoming. The breakfasts are amazing, and it is situated just down the road from where all the shops are. i have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this as a place to stay in McGregor - you just can't go wrong.

Thank you Nicolaas, for making our stay feel like a home away from home, cosy, clean, and practical. Your breakfasts were absolutely divine, and your garden stunning, I was fortunate to see your roses in bloom, your fountains also give a great sense of peace and harmony. We will definately be back next year. Lynné Arundel :)

We were so very pleasantly surprised at what an absolute gem The Old Village Lodge is. And we enjoyed 5 nights with Nicolaas's fabulous breakfasts to look forward to every morning. He even gets up at 3AM to make croissants. The gardens are lovely and so well cared for and the guest rooms are well appointed and very comfortable.....room #3... More

The Old Village Lodge was a very pleasant surprise. Although the Trip Advisor reports were good, what we found was so much more. First of all, Nicolaas is the consummate host. Nothing is too much trouble. He advised us well of attractions in the area and even did restaurant bookings for us. He is also a mean cook. His take... More
