We are locals to Langebaan and have enjoyed many good times at the hotel including our engagement party. Sadly today, during peak holiday season, we had the worst service experienced anywhere. We waited almost 2 hours for breakfast. Seven tables were full of dirty plates, with birds eating off the tables. 2 waiters for a packed restaurant in peak season??... More

We stayed in the Frank Whiteman cottage that is attached to this hotel. A really lovely, old fashioned place with great views. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and we really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is near the West Coast Naitonal Park where birds abound.

Imagine an enormous Catalina flying boat landing at the lagoon at Langebaan. They used to track German submarines during World War II but now the lagoon and the Farmhouse are a convenient spot on the journey from Cape Town to Namibia. Sheltered from the northerly and westerly winds off the South Atlantic, Langebaan originally a haven for yachtsmen, has become... More

Quaint is the word. Has facinating old farm items all over the main public areas, plenty of nice nooks and crannies to feel special, two awesome fire places. Staff is great, very friendly. Rooms are fine, old-world charming, nothing fancy just plain utility, although filled with quirky old furniture (all excellently maintained). Resaturant is ok, but breakfast is tolerable at... More

Stayed at THe Farmhouse whilst on a quick business trip. Room was very comfortable with clean linen and a choice of very comfortable pillows. Great view of the lagoon. Room was quiet and away from the busy kitchen and bar area. The restaurant dinner was average, no great shakes. Good ambiance with a fire burning in the dinning room area.... More

Have been coming here for a number of years and never tire of sitting outside having tea overlooking the lagoon. The staff have changed considerably over the last few years but the stalwarts Andy and Mohammed are still there and make me very welcome. They have changed the menu in the restaurant (at last, as it had been the same... More

After four days in Cape Town we travelled North by way of the M7 through rolling countryside passing through Citrusdal famous for its oranges towards Clan William following the Olifant river. Both are small towns with little in the way of accomodation. Clan Williams is famous for its Rooibus tea and so we visited a farm and processing plant to... More

We stayed at the Farmhouse Hotel for two nights in early September. The upstairs room was spacious and very comfortable, with a view out over the lagoon. The only negative was that the staircase up to the room was very steep. That said, the environs of the hotel were very pleasant in an old country hotel sort of way. You... More

Dear Ross D, Many thanks for your review of The Farmhouse Hotel on Trip Advisor and thank you for your positive comments. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We take your comment on board regarding the staircase. The building is old and historical and therefore any alterations have to go through the SA heritage council. We also try... More

This hotel is located in nineteenth century farmhouse but with all the conveniences of a twenty first century hotel. The siting is superb overlooking the bay and the service is first rate. The food was a delight and the crackling log fires completed the picture.

We were a party of six that really enjoyed one night at The Farmhouse Hotel in September 2014. The location is excellent, the views are fantastic, the rooms are luxury, the service exemplary, the food at breakfast and dinner was really really good. We will return for sure.
