Farmers Folly guest house is an excellent little home away from home. The staff are friendly and very helpful, the guesthouse has a beautiful garden and braai facilities. If you need a place in the area this is a must. Some of the rooms need a bit of a renovation though.

Beautiful setting.It was very hot during our two day stay. Hardly slept! Roof fan totally ineffective for a hot Pretoria. Please consider putting in air-conditioners in the rooms. It is a four star guesthouse!

Lovely gardens and peaceful surroundings. A small swimming pool and lovely places to sit at and enjoy a drink while the night closes in. Need to have own transportation as it is a ways from public transportation. Excellent service at breakfast, which was a treat.

We booked a Deluxe room for 2 nights, but the room needed renovating (bathroom). The swimming pool was very dirty. The girl at the reception was very friendly , but the owner never bothered to say hi.

The kindness and generosity of the owners shone through from the outset. Their attention to detail in the beautiful furnishings and general ambiance. Great amenities, beautiful gardens and outdoor pool, as well as superb food attractively presented. A stay to remember!

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!
