I spent two nights at the Farm Inn and was impressed with my room. My room had a fire place, large tub and shower and enjoyed hearing the lions roar at night. They also had an animal reserve which was fun to tour. The highlight staying there was petting a cheetah. The breakfast was great and internet could be accessed... More

I don't know how this hotel is ranked what it's ranked. It's like a terrible themed hotel to the tune of a wildlife safari but with proper cringe decor and taxidermy for Africa. The bedroom is stuck in the 90s and the room layout is arbitrary, with no shower facilities.

Really enjoyed our stay at The Farm Inn. The restaurant service and food was good. Loved the fireplace in the room. Great for a romantic weekend away. Was amazing to hear the lions - as if they were outside your door. Only thing I can fault, upon check-i you are handed your key with not being roomed by any staff.

Having booked Christmas lunch here we decided it would be nice to spend the night as a family instead of taking the long drive home. We were a bit disappointed to find that civilisation had crept in and the hotel is surrounded by housing estates and shopping malls. Having said this, the hotel is on a very large piece of... More

Without paying any entrance fee we were able to see a tiger, lions, meerkats, rooikat and many other farm animals. We ordered carrot cake (not the best) and milkshakes. The service is good but the area itself and what it has to offer is what makes this restaurant. Great for families with young children. Would definitely go back. For photos... More

Stayed at Farm Inn with as part of large group of friends on three occasions ... absolutely great service, staff is professional, friendly and love their jobs. We had private function in the Boma and the atmosphere was great, and service excellent ... Rooms are spacious and have a warm and cosy feel.

We went for the game drive and drinks. The guide was very knowledgeable and we enjoyed the game drive, For R130 a person it was worth it. The restaurant was large, we just had drinks as we had to go on the game drive and didn't have a chance to eat there. Will go back to check it out for... More

We have never stayed at the Farm Inn, but regularly go there for a Sunday lunch or Family occasion. The main building is decorated in typical African style and along with the animal exhibits and paintings make it a wonderful entrance place and invites you to walk around The food is always great and the buffet has a wide selection...
