I have been privileged to watch this amazing guest house grow and develop as one of the finest establishments in the western cape. Situated in the picturesque village of McGregor, owned and managed by the amazing Nicolaas, this beautifully appointed guest house exceeds all expectations from the minute you step through the front door. The passion and attention to detail... More

Dear Manatoka, Thank you for your beautiful review. I am over the moon with all your kind words. I believe in a hearty breakfast and to spoil my guests with all our home made preserves and breads. One need to utilize all the fruit trees in the gardens. I look forward to your return. Kind regards, Nicolaas More

You are greeted by your warm and welcoming owner/host, Nicolaas who simply cannot do enough for you.

Everything about our stay at the Old Village Lodge was so far beyond compare, words fail! Nicolaas must be the friendliest host we have ever come across in our travels! In fact, he totally took the restaurant booking process out of my (greedy little) hands and made our whole visit care-free and fantastic. He also has the two cutest dogs... More

Nicolaas was a wonderful host (and a great chef - breakfast was a treat!) who looked after us fabulously from the moment we arrived. The guest house is luxurious, beautifully decorated and great value for money. We will definitely be back!

Apart from the beautifully presented and maintained guest house the warm welcome we received from the host Nicolaas will remain with us for a long while.
