Although I gave this hotel an Average Rating, in fact it is better than average, but not up to a Very Good Rating. Marks out of ten would be a better way to rate and I would give it a 7/10. The Farmhouse was built in 1860 and has an old world charm about it. In the front there is... More

Stairs quite steep and room rather warm on occasions (no air con in the hotel) Large comfortable bed/pillows. Safe, fridge and TV with SS channels. No gowns and rather disappointed that unable to make international... More

A great weekend break well situated on Langebaan lagoon very close to Cape Town. Somewhat old worldly, helpful staff, very comfortable and surprisingly good food. No hesitation in recommending The Farmhouse Hotel.

We got married in Langebaan over 3years ago and fell on love with the place. It's really very special to us. Lovely rooms, great showers and a fabulous restaurant. The lamb shank and chicken pie ware delicious! The staff on checking out were probably the friendliest we have come across. West Coast hospitality at it's best.

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.
