Exceptionally friendly staff and management, very welcoming. Amazingly luxurious facilities, accommodation and food with special attention given to detail and utmost quality. A definite return-to place in my book!

We had been meaning to visit The Feathered Nest Guest Farm for years but, living in Cape Town, it's not often we both get the chance to get up to that part of the country. Silly us for leaving it so long - what a gem this is. The first impression is the friendliness of the owner manager team of... More

From the first conversation with Marion when we made the booking, to the goodbyes on Sunday. What an amazing experience. Every single attention to detail, personal touch and professionalism will always stand out. Our cottage was beautifully decorated and perfectly clean. The personal welcome card on our bed on Friday evening, and the bird's nest filled with choccies on Saturday... More

Secluded. Great food. Very private. The small personal touches were great. (We got a potted sage bush as a parting gift). The outdoor shower is heavenly. The big bath indoors also goes beyond its primary function. A little bit far from the Magaliesberg mountain itself and one has to travel some distance on dirt roads but we managed well with... More

The most wonderful setting. Martin and Marion were the best hosts imaginable. My room, Weaver cottage was beautifully decorated and furnished- a bath to die for. If I could hire Marion as my personal chef, I would. Meals that would make even master chef look amateur. I had the honor of riding with the boss on the quad bike on... More

Hospitality: Personal, warm, friendly and accommodating. Rooms: Absolutely beautiful to the finest of details. Private, spacious and very comfortable. Food: What more can be said other than it is superb! Delicious with ample portions served. Served with no unnecessary delays between courses and in person by Marion or Martin. The Feathered Nest really is everything and more you could ever... More

Our second visit and still very impressed with the venue. The cottages are private and beautifully decorated, worth mentioning is the flower arrangements and outside showers. If it is to get away from the stress of work and the concrete jungle, this is the place to go to. The food is excellent and the presentation creative, thanks Marion. The room... More

Glad we made the decision to try something new. The service is superb, the cottage is tastefully decorated and exceptionally clean. The champagne and sherry in the room is a lovely touch. The evenings were cold but the electric blanket and fireplace kept us warm. The fire crackling in the fireplace added to the romantic ambiance. I think you must... More
