We really enjoyed our stay at The Farmhouse. We were very warmly welcomed by Barbara, the Manager and found all the staff friendly and helpful. We felt very much at home. Our room was beautiful decorated and comfortable and we had everything we needed. The surroundings are extremely peaceful and beautiful with birds and water fountains. We highly recommend this...

The manager is rude and disrespectful. I heard her swearing at a staff member. She could barely communicate with me. The place is beautiful but i would never go back there. Unless the are under better management.

I have been here maybe 4 times in as many years, on business. Love the place, for its beauty and tranquility, and for the friendly staff, and also for the excellent home cooking. The centre piece is the grounds, with an inviting garden and water features centred with a seating area surrounded by a moat and fountains. Trees and birds...

under new management, this B and B is a magical place to stay with beautiful grounds and a very comfortable room. The staff could not have been more helpful and the food was delicious. I would not hesitate to recommend this to friends and anyone who loves an unusual place to relax away from the cares of the city life.

A very well maintained property. A beautiful garden and peaceful environment to stay in an it is nice and quiet due to it being a distance from the CBD and other larger settlements. The heat got a bit unbearable at times as the air-con wasn't working properly but, it was a pleasant stay regardless!

This is a cautionary tale to all bridal couples considering using this venue for their wedding: My daughter recently got married at the Farmhouse and what was supposed to be the happiest of occasions was almost ruined by the lack of attention to detail by the very poor management. The litany of woes included repeated power failures on the day...

To pay R1500 odd for a night at The Farmhouse on 2nd Avenue, Linden, Johannesburg, one would expect closer attention to detail... In the shower was a complimentary shower gel and body lotion, however no shampoo or conditioner, no shower cap, nor was there any new bar of soap provided, but I later noticed some soap that a previous guest...

It was great staying over at The Farmhouse. Friendly hosts, I right at home. Absolutely loved the underfloor heating as I arrived with a cold front. And the garden is so beautiful, wish I had more time.

Setting very tranquil and pretty but rooms very average. Bathroom needs attention, limited amenities, no hand towels no shower, taps aren't marked so you don't know hot from cold. Bedroom doesn't have any space for your suitcase so you work on the floor. Bedside lamp doesn't have suitable adaptor so it doesn't work. Breakfast very average and nowhere to say...
