I have never encountered such bad service as when I visited The Farmhouse Hotel on 8th January 2015. We arrived at 10:40 for breakfast. The table were not cleared from the previous geusts that was sitting there. A waiter came and cleared the table at 10:45 and told us that we will be attended to soon. At 11 o'clock a... 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.

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
