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

I stayed there last weekend while doing the Pretoria Marathon. The place is beautiful, with rooms that have window doors onto a lush green garden. Everything as it should be. Nice decoration, very spacious room, great breakfast (including some of the greatest muffins I've ever had). The host, Dalien, was incredibly helpful and friendly, and Paul even drove me twice...

I checked into Farmer's Folly at short notice and on the recommendation of a friend. The spacious guest house has well appointed en suite bedrooms. My room had a door leading to the immaculately kept garden, entertainment area and swimming pool. For Dalien and her staff no request is too much. They looked after me well and gave me assistance...

We had a long day on the road and found Farmers Folly. We were greeted friendly warm hospitality and a beautifully decorated place to stay. The room was quiet and the bed superb. I will recommend it far and wide. Thank you!

Excellent stay! I was very satisfied with the neatness of the place. The room had an entry/exit door to the garden, which was a plus for me. Very friendly staff and managers! I will definitely stay there again.

Farmers Folly is ideally located for anyone spending time in Pretoria. The garden is beautiful and many of the rooms look out on it. When there are few people staying, it feels extremely private and restful.
