This is a charming hotel with an informal family feel to it. Even pets are welcome! The staff were helpful and hospitable, and the cooking homestyle and tasty. We stayed in a lovely spacious and comfortable room overlooking the sea. The only issue was that it had to be accessed by very steep and narrow stairs. If you battle with... More

Thank you for your great feedback. It is very much appreciated. Sorry to hear that you had problems negotiating the stairs. The Farmhouse, as you know, is a converted farmstead and through the conversion process to hotel, necessitated stairs to make the most of the amazing Lagoon views. We hope to welcome you back again soon. More

The Farmhouse Hotel gives you an old world feel that is modern and enjoyable. WiFi throughout with high ceiling and wooden floors. Our room was spacious and comfortable with an amazing high up view of Langebaan lagoon. At this point in our visit I couldn't have asked for more, then the evening. The waiting staff in the restaurant were abysmal.... More

We stayed for 2 nights with our 2 boys and really enjoyed our stay. The hotel is cozy and sweet and the staff were very polite and helpful. The hotel is very kid friendly - there is a jungle gym and a swing and also 2 hammocks. There is a pool, but it was freezing so we didn't use it.... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights in March in Superior Room (Room 10). The location of the hotel was what attracted us with sweeping views of the water and its very close proximity to the entrance to the West Coast National Park. There is off street parking for guests but on a couple of occasions we were not... More

We booked into Farmhouse and brought our daughter and her hubby along. I won't go into the awful experience upon arrival - that will take up too much space. We stayed in the Frank Whiteman cottage. Please, management of Farmhouse Hotel, UPGRADE this place! Who rated this 4 Star? Or was it rated 30 years ago? Upstairs: Scary, rickety staircase... More
