The Farmhouse Hotel has all the luxuries you could desire! It has a lovely farm house feel, gorgeous fireplaces and stunning views over the lagoon. The restaurant has good food and all the staff are professional and friendly! The rooms are spacious and well equipped. There is a cute "old style" sweet shop, and many historical appliances and tools on... More

We stayed 3 nights at the Farmhouse Hotel in late December and found it quite nice. The rooms were spacious and nicely decorated with your own fireplace which you could light during chilly evenings. Our rooms were facing the pool area with your own outdoor seating. The breakfast buffet was very good with everything you need of breads, pastries, ham,... More

my wife and I stayed there for a couples of nights around Christmas. That was amongst the best vacations we had. The view is spectacular, blue lagoon all the way! The wind was great and as sailing was part of the trip it was great fun. Nice breakfast with toasts, eggs, granola, orange juice, yogurts... We had dinner once with... More

We decided to go to a hotel for a 3 night break. Hotel is old charm. Receptionist was quite snooty on arrival and actually said leave your baggage and come back after 2 pm. Fine we did that. When we got back to go to our rooms, we found that the room allocated to my mom, who is 81 years... More

We had a lovely stay at this hotel in the cottage as we were a family of 5. The cottage had bags of character and space although the wooden floorboards meant the children would wake up early to us walking about upstairs. The food was delicious and the staff very helpful. The only small downside was the bathrooms could do... More

Nothing to complain about, clean bedrooms, spacious with a beautiful view (we had room 2 and 7). Free Wi-Fi available in the rooms which is very convenient! Very friendly staff always there to make sure your stay is as enjoyable as it should be. The hotel isn't far from the main beach. It is lovely, I strongly recommend it. Enjoy!

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.
