During our honeymood we spent 3 days at the Farm: a warm welcome, yummie breakfast and excellent diners. We visited 10 accomodations during our 3 weeks-trip in South Africa. Farm 215 was the most remarkable. We did horseriding and walks at the fynbos: what silence, what flowers, what colours!! We had a room en suite with bathroom (2-persons shower!), own... More

We spent five days at Farm 215 in November 2012, and we could not have found a better place to stay. We were absolutely delighted by the gorgeous and impeccable premises, the stunning surroundings, the fine quality of the food and wine, and last but not least by the remarkable kindness, helpfulness and professionalism of the entire staff. My wife... More

I am happy to write that I do not agree at all with some of the latest reviews. I stayed 2 nights at Farm215 from the 26th of December till the 28th of December and I loved every minute of it. I walked for hours at the fynbos reserve and saw so many flowers during the hike that there was... More

It seems a lot of the reviews are from foreign tourists, and its great to see how they enjoy it - but when you are a local and you know what the going rate should be, then.... We went for a weekend In Oct, and all i can say is its totally overpriced. The setting and concept is all good-perhaps... More

This place so so good - the food is exceptional, the best we had in SA - they did a braai specially for us with local snoek. The wine is grown on their own vineyard and is fabulous sold at cost price, no restaurant mark-up. The fynbos walk is brilliant, although I'd have made it longer. It ends at a... More

I want to preface this review by saying, had we not stayed here in the winter, and during a particularly gloomy, wet stretch of weather, we might have felt very differently about this property. As it was though, what will stick with me most was how cold it was—inside! I failed to notice when booking that the fynbos suites have... More

We just returned from a 3 night stay at Farm 215 and we would be failing to honour the generosity and time we enjoyed if we did not submit a glowing review of our stay there. The weather happened to be wet and cold, but I could hardly imagine any other place you would want to be in the entire... More

This guest house is very difficult to classify. I suspect that the experience you will have here will depend predominantly on your mood; are you feeling tolerant, exacting, bored, stressed ...?whatever you're feeling, this place will probably intensify it. We stayed here in late April/early May 2012 at around R2 500 per room per night bed & breakfast for 2... More

The fynbos suites are like private villas with a clean modern design and beautiful views across the diverse yet smallest floral kingdom in the world. The view continues into the distance accross award winning vineyards a lake and then off to the ocean. We loved our stay and can't wait to return next year!
