“Wonderful place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2011

Very friendly staff. Beautiful room (very spacious - with very nice bathroom, wi-fi, fridge, micro-wave, etc.) and garden. The place is big and you will really feel at home. Safe parking, pool, excellent breakfast, huge screen in the living room. It is better to have a car to go there but you can also walk about 10min to catch a Gautrain bus (going to Hatfield Gautrain station) or 20min to catch another Gautrain bus to Menlyn shopping area. Heidi can also drop you anywhere if you need.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2011

There were great rooms at this guest house and the staff were really friendly however the directions to the guest house were not very precise and therefore left us driving around aimlessly until a security guard pointed us in the right direction. The fact that Farmers folly is not registered in directory enquiries did not help our situation.The staff apologised for this very earnestly. Breakfast was served within the guest house however the fact that there was nowhere to get diner within the guest house meant that we had to go out each night for diner or call for "mr delivery" whose prices are not inconsequential. The rooms were great and the wooden panelling and old appearence lead to a feeling of grandeur.
