We have stayed a number of times here and always enjoy the hospitality of Gail and Mike, especially the breakfasts. There are only a few attractions in the vicinity but we heartily recommend a short stay here for the chance to relax in delightful scenery, and for us it is a perfect stop on our travels.

The house is large and the garden - especially the big swimming pool area - is lovely. Rooms are a bit on the twee side in decor (heavy drapes, carpets, flowery lampshades ... a bit claustrophobic and old fashioned, or trying a bit too hard to justify rates?) but the bathrooms are very spacious and well appointed and the owner...

Dear Gypsetter66 We're thrilled you find us friendly and like the place, but disappointed that you found the country animal smells were so horrorful. The 'icky pong' is from the pig farm nearby, which supplies much of the pork in the valley. When we get this smell we know it's going to rain (tis the north wind which brings this);... More

I was so glad I took De Langenhof Guest House as my choice from the Internet. The Establishment is owned and run by Johan and Gail Walters. As this was my first visit to Riebeeck West this was way beyond my imagination. It should actually be a Five star, as I have never experienced such a luxury in a small... More

It's a lovely old house with a large garden. Our room was small but comfortable, and there is an enormous verandah running the length of all the main house rooms. Breakfast is served here, and my husband said it was the best cup of tea he had ever had (he's a lifelong tea drinker!) Gail & Mike were welcoming hosts... More

We had a very relaxing and enjoyable stay at De Langenhof. We stayed in the garden room and it had it's own patio with a beautiful outlook. The room was spacious with a wonderful en-suite bathroom with Victorian bath and double shower. The bed was comfortable with good quality linen. The hosts, Gail & Mike, were very helpful and pay...

De Langenhof is a beautiful and peaceful place to stay. The patio is so generous and comfortable that you could spend your entire stay just hanging out there. But don't miss out on the pool (it was too cold to swim, but that didn't stop me from using the pool house). Within walking distance are some lovely places to eat... More

We stayed for 2 nights in route from Paternoster to Rouxwil farm stay near Villiersdorp. Mike & Gail are wonderful hosts, in fact on our first night we even dined with them. ((Delicious lamb shanks). Breakfast was enjoyed overlooking their beautiful garden. Nothing is too much trouble for these lovely people.

Lovely Guesthouse, beautiful garden and verandah. Really friendly hosts. Nice pool, although was too cold this time of year to swim. Riebeek Kasteel is down the road where you will find cute shops and restaurants

The perfect overnight stay in the beautiful Riebeeck Wes area - friendly and helpful hosts, eloquent design with a homely, antique feel, quiet location (only noises came from the abundant birdlife), delicious local-inspired breakfast, and plenty of wine, craft and food-oriented attractions in close proximity:) Lovely views and trails for the avid runner/cyclist:) Wonderful thank you!
