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.

My stay at Farmer's Folly was peaceful and friendly. It is in a quiet, up-market suburb and the amenities are beautiful. The hostess is gracious and kind. I'll be staying there many times in the future.

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. I could even walk to Aroma Ice Cream on Lynnwood! The only think I would suggest the owner change is the unreasonably large fridge plus freezer in the self catering unit. It is quite... More

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.
