Farm Inn is a wonderful place for a function, or just to drive through for the Sunday lunch. Ilze assisted me to host a 80th Birthday party (32 people) and it was perfect. The venue, decor, staff and the food. Everyone at the event could not stop talking about the tasty food and the variety. The buffet was really value...

When I booked my accommodation at The Farm Inn, I decide to treat myself to a "deluxe" room - which was not inexpensive! Well, while it wasn't awful - apart from the fact that it was so dark even with all the lights on that I couldn't see to put my makeup on - it was very, very standard. The...

To say the experience was disappointing would be an understatement. Tucked into a dim and depressing conference room for a pre-booked, pre-paid Mothers Day lunch. Mismatched furniture, heaters covered in a thick layer of dust, the waiter with food stains on his pullover and trousers.The food was nothing more than staff canteen fare at an institution that doesn't care about...

you feel like you're on the farm . the rooms are large and spacious somewhat outdated in terms of interior and fit out but very comfortable and extremely good value for the money you pay. If you're in Pretoria and like the feel of an old country home this is a good bet . Breakfast is a massive buffet with...

We visited Farm Inn on Saturday. Sat down at 12h00, 12h25 I had to go and look for a manager as no one was even offering us a menu or getting our drink order. 12h30 we order. 12h57 we get our meal and it was wrong, the waiter takes it back. 13h14 I again go look for the manager asking...

Rooms and grounds are great, especially for families with children. Service is terrible. I witnessed several loud arguments between staff, orders took hours to arrive (after waiting 30mins to flag someone down), and staff were generally grumpy and unavailable. Two of my three meals were so over cooked, they were inedible. I would not recommend anything other than a day...

We went and received a great buffet, better than most. The service was good and then it was time for the game drive. Our game host was excellent, Quintin was his name, the only pity was that the park was in slight disrepair but the animals looked healthy and happy.

Was there for 8 days for a meeting. The location is out of Pretoria so you can really relax. Staff is so helpful. My room was super. Breakfast was with multiple choices and omlette prepared on request. However, espresso cafe is for payment. We had lunches and dinner prepared for us and it was really with several choices, however, same...

We recently had a big family breakfast at the Farm Inn. The breakfast buffet was very good and the staff very helpful when we were running late. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit. After breakfast we visited the animals. As a professional in the Veterinary business I feel there needs to be more supervision with the children and the bunnies and...
