We stayed one night at this charming establishment. On arrival we received a very warm welcome and had a most comfortable stay. Our breakfast was a masterpiece created by Nicolaas. Thank you for looking after us. We most definitely will return and highly recommend you.

We stayed at the Old Village Lodge for 2 nights. This was our first time to McGregor, and we just wanted 2 days away from Cape Town with peace and quiet, in a beautiful setting - and this is exactly what we found. The lodge is beautiful and peaceful. We had a fantastic room with our own private patio, with... More

We stayed in the Old Village Lodge for our 2nd time over the Easter weekend. We were again delighted with the excellent personal service that we received. Nicolaas is a very good host and never disappoints. We even received Lindt Easter bunnies in our room. We could just relax and everything was taken care of. The house is beautiful as... More

Dear Wahl, Thank you so much for taking the time to do such a beautiful review. I really appreciate it. What is Easter without a Lindt bunny? It was my pleasure and I love spoiling my guests over festive times. That is what makes us different to the rest. Thank you for all the compliments. I sent you the rusks... More

Nicolaas (the owner) goes to all extremes in spoiling his guests (home-made rusks, jams, proper coffee). He even bought bigger mugs after I made a suggested during our previous stay. If you stay in McGregor, this is where you want to be.

They say ignore the best couple of reviews on tripadvisor as unrealistic. If you ignore this one you do so at your own peril. This is a very special guesthouse set in a beautiful location with the best of everything, warm, friendly, luxurious and a great host with delicious breakfast.
