This is one of the best bed and breakfasts we have ever been to. The room was beautiful and tastefully furnished and the bathroom spacious. Nothing was too much trouble for Nicholaas who was so friendly - gave us lots of advice about restaurants and routes and excursions and he seemed like a true friend. The garden was beautiful with...

Don't settle for ok. Treat yourself to being spoilt by the most attentive and caring host in Nicolaas. Not only that but enjoy superb accommodation and a lovely swimming pool which you can actually swim in and an imaginative garden full of interesting plants and birds. McGregor is a quiet village and only go there if you like the good... More

From the moment we booked our 2 night stay at this exquisite establishment we were made to feel welcome and special. Although we arrived early Nicolaas was not perturbed and took it all in his stride. The quaint exterior and immaculate colourful, fruit-filled gardens were exceptional. We stayed in the suite which was worth the very reasonable additional cost as... More

I travel a lot and as such guest houses, hotels etc are "places to sleep". This weekend was different. It was my first time in McGregor and The Old Village Lodge was a shot in the dark choice of lodging for the 2 nights I had planned. What a nice reception and experience!!! Nicolaas listens inventively when discussing your needs,... More
