If you want good animal sightings the game drive is a must as they ensure you see the big cats and the drivers are knowledgeable on all the animals. The food is nice and people are pleasant. Its got a nice atmosphere of real Africa. The photographs are gorgeous and the interior is fun. The food is average but service... More

We stayed 6 nights at The Farm Inn during August 2015 (I visited Pretoria for a medical procedure). The Farm Inn is a combination of a hotel / conference venue / tea garden and touch farm for day visitors and some game viewing situated on the outskirts of Pretoria. We stayed in a Deluxe room which was very spacious. Service... More

It's lovely place by the interiour (except bathroom, bathroom is old and need rennovation). The room is gorgeous, fireplace, backyard, kingsize bad, all is clear and lovely. Unfortunately service is poor, I was need to go at the middle of the night to reception by the dark street just to get adapter. And it's luck that I had a confirmation... More

We went to The Farm Inn specifically for the game drive. Our guide/driver was the gentleman who is in charge of the animals, and was hugely knowledgeable and interactive with both the animals and us. Very impressive. The drive took a little over an hour - the guide didn't seem to be rushing at all, despite there only being four... More

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
