What a fabulous place! We were spoilt by Nicholaas, who is extremely accomodating! One feels totally at home. The garden is out of this world and the rooms beautifull. An ideal place to relax. We were 3 musicians taking part in the Poetry Festival and we were so happy to make use of the grand piano in the lounge, entertaining... More

One again an excellent stay. Nicolaas is the consummate host. Nothing is too much trouble, The breakfast is still stunning, as are the small touches such setting the mood by playing Pavarotti quietly in the background before and during breakfast. He even makes his own croissants and jams by hand. The addition of louvered blinds has greatly increased the useability... More

We spent the weekend with friends at this amazing guest house. Nicolaas was very accommodating and a pleasure to deal with. The rooms and communal areas are beautifully furnished with lots of attention to detail. The garden is stunning and so peaceful and tranquil. We wish we could have stayed and never leave. Thank you to Nicolaas for being the... More

Staying at the Old Village Lodge whilst performing at the McGregor Poetry Festival was an absolute joy. The gorgeous garden and roses, the uber stylish interior design and furniture and spacious, elegant room took my breath away. The staff where extremely friendly and professional and the owner, Nicolaas a true gentleman. I stayed just one night, but when I left... More

Having stayed in hundreds of properties in 20 countries on six continents across 30 or so years, I've developed a pretty acute sense of when lodging accommodations fall below, meet, or exceed my expectations. If staying in a bed & breakfast, you hope for a few basics: a clean room; above all else, a quiet and decent night's sleep; a... More

The room we chose was the large room which really was excellent. The B&B was well placed with a restaurant across the road. The breakfasts were superb and our host Nicolaas was so helpful and an excellent host. He adapted his breakfasts for out banting eating habits but kept them delicious and filling.( The only thing to remember is if... More

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...
