I went to Farm Inn for a day outing with children. We went to the restaurant and we had a good waiter and the food was okay The staff at the farmyard, working in a child friendly environment, were very unwelcoming after shouting at the children. There were ground staff that were also disrespectful towards the older citizens. The overall... More

Dear Ingrid, I'm terribly sorry to hear that your day went so badly at the hotel. We would really like to deal with this unacceptable behavior from our staff, as we pride ourselves in being a family friendly hotel. Would it perhaps be possible to give me a call as I would just like clarify the issue with the grounds.... More

I recently spent three nights attending a convention at The Farm Inn. The staff were very welcomming and helpfull, the food rather akin to a boarding school, the game farm interesting but the least impressive was the accommodation. My innitial experience of the room was that it was large but dark. Then on attempting to open the patio door, the... More

Dear Tess, Thank you for the feedback, we are continually upgrading sets of rooms. Which is an ongoing process as we are a 30 year old family owned hotel. If possible could you perhaps remember the room number so that we can attend to the problems. Once again thank you for your feedback. Regards, Helena More

Stayed here for one night. Quick check in. Nice park area and serms line good conference facillities. The hotel have lion leopard and other animals. The ac in the room needs big improvement and so does the breakfast. But in general a nice hotel for a short stay

We came here for a wedding and truly loved our stay-our room was amazing-large, tastefully fitted out, spacious and clean with a huge bed (see photos). It was like a chalet with a thatched roof and opened up to an outside area which overlook grass land and the animals. We loved the grounds and the layout (plants and flowers everywhere),... More

I was only eating in this big resort/farm, and not sleeping so i cannot say anything about rooms and so on, the place is well manteined and quite elegant. I was not impressed by the food at all and i found it very greasy and was not acceptable by a place like this

The rooms are terrible , if you like 60s furniture and the smell from the gym of the old age home then pick room 46!! The last room in path. Not worth the money we spent per persons per night here. The only saving grace is the waffle that I ate for breakfast

On our recent trip to South Africa, my partner and I stopped here for a beer on our way back to our hotel. We were really impressed with the hotel, it was great fun to see the animals. When we saw the standard of the rooms we immediately wished that we were staying here - it was so much nicer... More

I just spent one night with my mom and daughter, we stayed in a 2 bedroom unit. The accommodation was comfortable and neat. The website and other sites underplay Farm Inn - it surpassed my expectations. I have been to many 4 star establishments and this was definitely at the top end. There was lots to do for my daughter... More

I stayed here for one night in October. Would definitely go back and would stay for longer. The staff on reception are extremely friendly and helpful, the gardens and buildings are beautiful and the animals are awesome. The room itself was amazing and tastefully decorated. I was able to do a cheetah experience on short notice after I arrived -... More

Came here on a Sunday on our last day in Pretoria before heading back to Australia. Our family who live in Pretoria did not even know this place existed right in Pretoria. The game drive was rather was on the average side, quite sad to see such large beautiful animals cooped up in cages. It felt like more of a... More
