Stunning B and B, beautiful garden, rooms and breakfast. Do... More

What a wonderful guest house. Gorgeous rooms, lovely public areas and one of the finest gardens in South Africa. Nicholaas was a most helpful and attentive host who provided delicious breakfasts. If you are lucky you will sit in the comfortable lounge enjoying a pre dinner drink to the gentle sound of him playing his piano, fabulous.

We had the most fantastic stay at the Old Village Lodge. Nicolaas was a fantastic host. Before we arrived he recommended the perfect restaurant, and was so accomodating. Our rooms were luxurious, and the breakfast was delicious. We will definitely return.

We loved our stay in many ways. The garden at Old village lodge, with honey sweet apricots falling to the ground, to budding olives, avocados dangling down, little nooks for sitting soaking up the sun, praying, meditating, a beautiful pool to cool down in, is a sanctuary. Nicolaas welcomed us and took care of our needs with much attention to... More

This was my new wife and I's very first stay in McGregor, and we couldn't have chosen a more Idyllic venue! Nicolaas (along with little Sophie) was such a friendly and attentive host. He goes beyond the call where breakfast is concerned, preparing the most exquisite meal, complimented by his very own artisanal preserves, breads and pastries. You can tell... More

This was our first stay visit and it was so good we will be making many return visits. It is luxurious and the attention to detail is fantastic. Our large bedroom (with extremely comfortable beds and pillows and beautiful bedding) also had a sitting room attached which led to a garden haven and lovely pool area. It really is a... More

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
