“Awesome stay at Umlambo Farmstay.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

We have just arrived back after an awesome stay at Umlambo - we arrived on a very wet and cold late afternoon - as we arrived we were warmly welcomed, showen our rooms and told to please make their home our home.
A nice cozy fire was lit and we sat and unwound - who couldn't in that enviroment!
The bedrooms are comfortable and clean - we even had some biscuits and chocolates waiting for us.
Breakfast was huge - a real "proper" farm breakfast - very yum!
All in all such a nice friendly experience - we will go back for sure!

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

We chose the B&B option and were accommodated in the host's main farmhouse, in a large bedroom with ensuite. With this arrangement, one never has the full extent of privacy (e.g. door to hallway but with key and lockable). Bedroom and bathroom were 'rustic' - i.e. appliances and furniture were far from modern. But the host (Don) had prepared a very nice welcome and was generally very friendly and generous. He served up a super-delicious fully cooked farm breakfast at a time that only farmers can find acceptable and saw us off with a big bag of his own farm-grown oranges. It might not be a top notch accommodation option but it is great value for (very little!) money in good atmosphere.
