We have stayed at Farm Inn several times now, and we enjoyed each and every time. The people there are extremely friendly and the scenery is amazing. The rooms are lovely & we love dining at the restaurant. It really is a little bit of Africa in the city!

when coming to South Africa from abroad, this place makes you feel you are not in a normal business hotel, yet it is not far away from the intl. airport and close to Pretoria. The economy rooms offer good price value, however there is no intl. TV program and noises from the outside could be heard inside the rooms. Beds... More

If you are looking for different type of hotel, with beautiful and cosy clean rooms, this is what you are looking for. This beautiful hotel on the east side of Pretoria is a true gem. You walk into the lobby and you feel like you are in an African Lodge. Natural stone walls, a giraffe is looking into the lobby.... More

It's an hotel but you can come as many families for a lunch during the week end. Playground and Castle for kids, tables in the grass, good and big meals, donkey's ride. Also Safari with very Nice lions, hyenas, jackals, African wild dogs...during an hour. A good place with efficient and Nice team. Kids will love it.

When you get there your GPS may not bring you to this hidden gem. There was a long cobblestone drive and we were sure that this was not the place in the country that my wife had stayed at fifteen years ago. Yes it is, and the city has grown up to the fences around the Farm Inn. Enjoyed the... More

Today, after a few month passing in front of the sign, we have decided to satisfy our curiosity and found out what was this farm inn. We haven't tried the hotel but the restaurant only. The place is cosy, food descent and staff at your service. Nice. And the cherry on top of the cake, a wild life reserve. Agreed,... More

The Farm Inn is a 30 year old hotel in Pretoria and still one of my favorites. The rooms are great and the food good old South African. They have a fantastic Game drive and there was an Indian Tiger right outside my bedroom. We took the whole family one a Sunday Afternoon game drive and were amazed at the... More

Went with friends to do Cheetah photo shoot but because it was raining this was not possible. We were able to play with lion cubs - fabulous and also had a mini safari. We had booked the buffet lunch, under £10, which was excellent, too many choices to mention. Would recommend.

Sunday buffet lunch and the Cheetah photo shoot all the mothers and grandmothers enjoyed the day out. The welcoming drinks and sweets were a wonderful addition. As usual the buffet lunch was excellent, with a wide variety of dishes for all tastes. Our waiter "Shorty" was excellent and our drinks order arrived quickly considering the number of people there.
