A very nice guesthouse that we return to time and again. It always feels like you can hide away from the daily rat race and just relax. The owner helped us herself and was very helpful and polite. See you soon!

We had two nights here whilst en route to the Kruger. The guest house was spotless and the staff were very kind and accommodating. Our beds were very comfortable and we enjoyed that the room had direct access to the pretty garden. Breakfast was generous. If we ever need to be back in Pretoria, we would not hesitate to stay...

Farmers Folly was a truly gem in Pretoria and definitely one of the highlights of my trip. The rooms are big, comfortable, beautifully decorated, with high ceilings and a nice view to the garden. The breakfast is amazing, with a good variety of cheese, bread, fruits and pastries. Daileen is very polite, friendly, helpful, she gave me some tips on... More

I had a really lovely stay at Farmer's Folly. The house and grounds are beautiful and peaceful. The service was fantastic and the breakfast had many small touches (like lavender garnishes) which made it stand out above other guesthouses.

We stayed in the self catering room whilst attending our son's graduation at Tuks. The room was spacious and well appointed and the self catering facility was very good indeed. The shower room was old fashioned and very small but clean. It has a lovely pool and terrace and would be a great place to relax in warmer weather. We... More

In our experience of months travelling in South Africa, Farmer's Folly sets the 4 star standard by which other B&Bs and small hotels should be measured. Our well appointed room was very comfortably furnished, had quality soft furnishings and was light and bright overlooking a manicured garden and pool. High ceiling, large shower room, tea, coffee, biscuits, extensive TV stations,... More

We came to South Africa for a vacation and entomological quest. Farmers Folly became our home base as we took multiple short trips to see parts of South Africa. This guest house was one of our favorite spots - everything was fresh and clean. We loved the stained glass windows and the elegant furniture. The garden was beautiful and restful.... More
