“1 night felt like 3 ....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

As we arrived at the Old Village Lodge the smell of freshly baked rusks welcomed us like old friends. Nicolaas was busy taking the last batch out of the oven. As he showed us to our room which was wonderful with our own private veranda with a view of the fantastic garden, i could help but notice the incredible attention to detail and that everything was key to a stylish yet comfortable stay.
Our breakfast was amazing, the best we have had in a long time, all freshly homebaked and beautifully presented.
Even though we could only stay for one night the time spend at the Old Village Lodge felt like we had been on a lazy long weekend.

We, a Dutch family of 5, stayed two nights at the Lodge early August 2013. It was the best and most appreciated stay we had during our three weeks in SA. Luxury accommodation in a very plesant little town Mcgregor, beautifull place and nice surroundings. At least two nice restaurants available. The village lodge deserves a top rating, host Nicolaas is very kind and helpfull. Breakfast was abundant en delicious. The garden is beautifull and tranquil. We would certainly recommend the old village lodge to everyone.

We stayed at the Old Village Lodge last night and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Nicolaas was a very attentive and wonderful welcoming host. The house is beautifully designed and the garden a delight. A wonderfully prepared and delicious breakfast served personally by Nicolaas - he baked the croissants himself and made the jams too. We will definitely be recommending this to others and returning there ourselves. The village of McGregor is also peaceful and unspoilt with natural beauty. A haven from the rush of city life

Room Tip: We had room 3 which seems to be the best one

We were warmly welcomed by our host Nicolaas on arrival, who had kindly made a booking at a nearby restaurant as we arrived quite late. The guest house is tastefully decorated and the 2 rooms we occupied were beautiful and spacious, with one overlooking the amazing garden. The electric blankets were especially welcome. Breakfast was such a treat! Nicolaas has a real knack in the kitchen and everything was delicious. We found the location to be ideal, with everything we could possibly need, including Temenos Retreat Centre, just a stone's throw away. A peaceful location and great host I can truly recommend.

Should you visit the special place which is Temenos at McGregor and you are looking for alternative accommodation, you need not look any further than across the road. Old Village Lodge offers extremely comfortable and aesthetically-pleasing accommodation with careful attention to detail. And Nicolaas is very happy to accommodate requests. Truly a pleasure in every respect. Zarine Roodt

Room Tip: The room with a bath and patio overlooking the garden.

We have just returned from Old Village Lodge in McGregor - and definitely made the right choice for our accommodation! The quality of our communication with Nicolaas prior to our arrival was prescient as we we were welcomed warmly to a lovely home from home. Our very comfortable room overlooked a beautiful garden, and having electric blankets was a special touch, and much appreciated.

Our hosts were gracious, not intrusive, yet available and concerned for our comfort; the breakfast was delicious; and the ambience was wonderfully conducive to fulfilling our intention: to have a lazy, peaceful, and gloriously indulgent weekend in a beautiful setting.

We intend going back - for a longer period next time, in the not too distant future..... Thanks so much, Nicolaas!

Recommended from the Springfield winery we spend one beautiful night at that lovely guesthouse. We really enjoyed the lovely little village of McGregor, had a very nice room with an old-fashioned but functional bath room. Also breakfast was perfect, especially the homemade croissants. We decided to visit McGregor again and then will ofcourse stay at the Old Village Lodge.
