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...

Was in Pretoria for business and did not fancy a B&B. Then I found the Farm Inn: great hotel with separate cottages. The cottages were very spacious and modern. Excellent bathroom. Breakfast was great, dinner facilities okay. Free wifi. Big plus: feels liking waking up in wild park: roaring of animals and very nice views!

I first stayed at Farm Inn in November 2013 and again in November 2014 for 2 nights. The room - a deluxe - was just magnificent. Heaps of room and a massive and so very comfortable bed. The decorations in the room are fabulous and the bathroom vanity is superb - a great big piece of log with two sinks... More

We went there for a yearend function. As you walk into the reception, you are greeted by african art, animals and a lovely atmosphere. The rooms were very comfortable and catered for all our needs. Breakfast was devine, and the service in general was really great. Definitely worth visiting!

I stayed at the Farm Inn for 4 nights on business. First impressions were good, a real relaxed environment. The room was good, the lighting in the room was not great which made it hard to see things at night if looking for something specific. The room I stayed in was 33. Overlooking the large open space it was tranquil... More

The peaceful surrounding of this hidden safari lodge will leave you feeling as if you are in the bush, not Pta. Catering towards all comforts and a great place for kids that includes many activities as well as a petting zoo! For the extra special touch, you can have a cheetah deliver your rings to you down the aisle! Amazing... More
