Great hotel with comfortable rooms and excellent food and service with very competitive bed and breakfast rates. Have stayed 4 times and have no complaints at all. My Grandkids enjoyed the hotel and animals. The Pub is characterful and offers a good menu

I stayed here as part of a Conference package a few months ago. There were 3 of us, and our rooms were completely different - with some having been newly refurbished, and others looking tired and worn out. Some of our showers didn't work, and when it rained there was water leaking into some of the rooms. There needs to... More

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.

Spent two nights here - first night in arrival in South Africa and last night before retuning home. The room on the first night was lovely and we could hear the lions snoring. Superb walk in shower and comfortable bed. Room opened out into a lawned area. On our last night we stayed a a different room with a fabulous... More

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.
