Farmers Folly 40 is without doubt a very nice place to stay with friendly and helpful staff, beautiful landscpaing in a very attractive part of Pretoria.

The guest house was difficult to find, because it lies in a secured area. But then we were much pleased about it, mostly abourt the room, which was discribed as 15 squaremeter small, but was much bigger and looking to the nice garden.

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.

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.
