Food was amazing. Only minor fault was we couldn't find anywhere in hotel to be cosy. It was very cold outside though. Everything else was pretty perfect. Food was better than the number 1 rated langebaan restaurant, though we were one of only two tables in the restaurant.

The rooms are beautifully appointed. The public lounge areas very tasteful with log fires in the winter months. In the Summer the Langebaan Lagoon is a fabulous place where you can take boat trips past the Langebaan Nature Reserve up to the houseboats at the very top end where the nicest beaches are.

We arrived at The Farmhouse to a warm welcome from the manager and were shown through to our room. The rooms are spacious with beautiful views of the lagoon. The seagulls made for good entertainment in the pool. Dinner was tasty.

While the views across the lagoon is great, areas at the hotel could do with improvements. When we visited the hotel had just been taken over by a new owner and staff were still green in terms of preparing the dishes. The rooms are comfortable and staff very friendly. The whole property functions as a museum with exhibits everywhere which... More

We did not stay at the hotel, we only had Sunday lunch there and it was great. The hotel has been revamped, but the old world charm did not get lost. It is a must see.

The venue is stunning. The food in the restaurant is delicious and the portions are huge. We enjoyed walking around the hotel and exploring the history. My only complaint would be that they lost our bookings for the spa treatment and dinner. But luckily they were able to fit us in for both.

We still cannot believe the excellent value for money for our stay.
