it was like in paradise.

Room Tip: there are only 3 rooms, we had number 3 and that was excellent and had a lovely terrace to the garde...

Superb stay - wish it had been longer.
Chris and Nikolas are great hosts.
The breakfast is superb, fresh and tasty.
We stayed in the room with the private sitting out area and what a bonus!
It has a superb comfy settee in to have a rest after a busy day along with a glass of wine or two.
Lovely gardens to sit in and relax along with a pool to cool down in.
Shame they don't have any loungers in the garden but they said it gets too hot to lay out in - but maybe next time.
Couldn't fault this small b&b with great hosts.
Hope to be back soon.

Room Tip: Both rooms are superb but choose the room with the private sitting out area.

Despite an earlier than expected arrival the owners were welcoming and hospitable. The rooms were clean, comfortable and cosy. In the heat the large lap pool and tranquil garden was a peaceful retreat from a busy schedule. Thanks to the management for a tranquil stay.

Room Tip: A great retreat while exploring the area.

This must surely rate as one of my best experiences with a B&B! Beautiful setting in peaceful McGregor. We had our own patio leading onto the garden and pool. The garden is clearly a labor of love for the owners and completes the tranquil experience. Breakfast is not your normal fare, and be assured the day cannot start on a better note- Nicolaas knows how to put together breakfast! We will be back and next time stay longer. Hiking in the nature reserve is 5 minutes walking from the room. To dine out-ask the advice of the owners and you will not be disappointed.

Room Tip: If a couple- ask for the room with the patio, if a family, then you will have it any case.

We spent three wonderful days at the Old Village Lodge in McGregor. Everything was immaculate and very comfortable. The rooms are spacious and cool and we had a lovely veranda leading out of our room overlooking the beautiful garden and lovely pool. It is a place where you can settle in and relax for a week. Our hosts, Nicolaas and Chris, were very friendly and helpful, made suggestions and bookings for dinner at some lovely nearby venues and went out of their way to make our stay memorable. Thank you Nicolaas and Chris, we will be back!

Lovely Cape Dutch building in easy walking distance to restaurants, shops and galleries. We enjoyed our first visit to Mcgregor and the Old Village Lodge was a perfect place to stay. The interior is immaculate, our hosts were extremely welcoming and hospitable and the pool and garden were very nice. Thank you! Gareth & Paul

The whole experience was amazing. Wonderful hosts, sumptuous room and they even made the sun shine! We left feeling relaxed and spoilt after a delicious breakfast on the stoep. Highly recommended.

Baie Dankie Chris and Nicholaas.
