I am extremely puzzled by some of the comments from other reviewers. My husband and I stayed in The Farmhouse for two nights in early March and we loved every minute of it. We were given the Frank Wightman "cottage" which is on two floors with its own patio if you are English, or stoep if ZA. The bed and... More

We stayed for 2 nights at this hotel and we were probably given one of the best rooms with double aspect windows and a table and chairs on the stoep. Our room although comfortable and clean was a little tired and needed a lick of paint. We did wonder how this hotel had got its four star rating perhaps it... More

Considering what we paid for our accommodation, I was extremely dissapointed in the service & set up of our rooms. No menus or information folder in the room, phoning reception/room service and calls not being answered, etc. I must admit I'm extremely curios as to what a hotel has to do to obtain a 4 star rating.

We stayed two nights at this very pretty and cozy hotel. The hotel is located outside of the city center, so you need a car to get to city center. On the other hand, the restaurant in the hotel was excellent, so no need to leave the hotel for that reason. Excellent views over the sea from the rooms. We... More

I saw the advertisement for the Farmhouse Hotel in the Getaway magazine and I always wanted to go there. I was not disappointed. The view over the Langebaan Lagoon was stunning. The food is fantastic. Where else can you drink a beer and see a submarine in the bay. The farm style windows were so charming and the room was... More

as we are aware that it is self catering the following: 1. The kitchen door did not have a key and could not open. 2. The brooms supplied were broken. 3. Light bulbs were broken especially the outside lights for the evening. 4. No mop or floor cloth to clean spills. 5. The outside braai area very dirty and unpleasant.... More

It is a characterful place with a beautiful location, charming public areas and very good food, but we thought they were understaffed in the restaurant and the rooms were in need of updating - our room was quite dingy, with a sub-standard bathroom. There weren't many loungers by the unheated pool, and half of them were broken. Nevertheless, a good... More

The farmhouse is a little gem of a hotel, situated at the far end of the town but in easy reach through available bicycles. More expensive than kite surf lodgings but great value as a boutique hotel, this place deserves every one of its 4 stars.

The staff, as usual, were friendly and the views incredible, but room 11 will not see us again. The suite was perfect, but the chatting that goes on "below", next door? nearly drove us mad.

The loft is truly a beautiful room with an amazing view, however, we apologise that you experienced such noise during your stay. We always try to manage any noise that will influence your stay.
