A very well maintained property. A beautiful garden and peaceful environment to stay in an it is nice and quiet due to it being a distance from the CBD and other larger settlements. The heat got a bit unbearable at times as the air-con wasn't working properly but, it was a pleasant stay regardless!

This is a cautionary tale to all bridal couples considering using this venue for their wedding: My daughter recently got married at the Farmhouse and what was supposed to be the happiest of occasions was almost ruined by the lack of attention to detail by the very poor management. The litany of woes included repeated power failures on the day... More

To pay R1500 odd for a night at The Farmhouse on 2nd Avenue, Linden, Johannesburg, one would expect closer attention to detail... In the shower was a complimentary shower gel and body lotion, however no shampoo or conditioner, no shower cap, nor was there any new bar of soap provided, but I later noticed some soap that a previous guest...

It was great staying over at The Farmhouse. Friendly hosts, I right at home. Absolutely loved the underfloor heating as I arrived with a cold front. And the garden is so beautiful, wish I had more time.

Setting very tranquil and pretty but rooms very average. Bathroom needs attention, limited amenities, no hand towels no shower, taps aren't marked so you don't know hot from cold. Bedroom doesn't have any space for your suitcase so you work on the floor. Bedside lamp doesn't have suitable adaptor so it doesn't work. Breakfast very average and nowhere to say... More

I arrived and was told the hotel was closed. No-one knew I was expected. No proper check-in or check-out. No invoice. No breakfast on Sunday as nothing was ready at 07:30. No shampoo or items in bathroom

Let's face it - there is no good reason to spend much time in Johannesburg. When you've gone through the Apartheid museum, the Constitutional Court House, the compulsory but meaningless tour of Soweto (because seeing it and living in it are 2 completely different things), you're done... The rest is neverending suburbs with high security walls... Living there is, I... More

The Farmhouse Linden is a beautiful B&B that will please business travelers as well as leisure travelers. You are transported to a different world as soon as you drive through the gate - beautiful gardens surround the whole property. In spring, the flowers smell amazing. You just breathe deeper and smile as you walk through the property; Jacarandas and the... More
