I spent a weekend there visiting my daughter at university. The accommodation was superb, staff uber friendly, gardens and koi pond added attractive features to a delightful guest house. Breakfast was fit for a king, rooms comfortable and spacious. I really enjoyed my stay there, close to the university and loads of restaurants. Well priced and affordable too.

It is like a 5 star Hotel! A gem. Friendly and very helpful personel! We got two large rooms with a nice garden view. The rooms are clean and the beds very comfortable. Safteyboxes did not work. The guest house has a Wonderful garden and a nice pool.

Had a great stay. Clean room, excellent breakfast and superb hosts who take an obvious pride in their spot. Small hiccup with booking date but sorted out very quickly and professionally. Thanks guys, I'll be back.

Amazing rooms and garden, great food and wonderful service! Great value for money! The rooms were spotless and the description of room facilities was spot on. Safe parking and private access to the rooms. I would definately recommend this guesthouse to anyone.

The room was spacious, comfortable, big bed and good mattress. Suggesting improvements: breakfast should be served from 7 to 9, as advertised, better laundry service is a must and a professional pool cleaning essential. Thanks.

The bed was super comfy, and the breakfast was delicious. Very friendly, helpful staff. The frogs can be rather loud at night, but I actually never had a problem getting to sleep. Located just 5 mins drive from Hatfield Gautrain station. Ngiyabonga kakhulu, baie dankie, and salani kahle! :)

I spent every night in a different hotel last week and found Farmers Folly to be very comfortable - in a beautiful setting, lovely rooms and efficient personnel. Will definitely chose to stay there again.
