The property was excellent and in a great location. The hosts were amazing and told you all the local spots to go. The room had a little cooking stove as well as pots and pans you could use if you wanted to eat inside the room.

We booked and paid almost 3 months in advance . We requested a specific room that we had stayed in previously . This was noted under "Special Requests" on the Booking.Com booking sheet . As I received no reply , I emailed my request for a second time on 16 November , 2021 . Once again , no reply . Om my arrival , I made my request known to the lady on duty . I was informed that on that very day , the room I had requested had been hired to a new client who had not yet arrived and had not even paid a deposit . I was informed that the room had been promised that day , and could not be changed . No effort was made to sort out my request . Obviously , existing clients who book and pay in advance have no value to this host . What a poor and stupid business decision .

Arrive late that night and our room was prepared so nicely...soft lights and tv on...it made us feel so special. Enjoyed the morning a great value for money breakfast with friendly staff. This will definitely be our regular overnight stop. Michelle is a great host.

There was no one on the property when we arrived, only a number in the window, after trying the cell phone number 15 times over a 2 hour period and sms the number with no success. We also tried the online message and the number on the booking confirmation, Other couples arrived whilst we were trying to gain access to the property and they left in disgust.
After trying for 2 hours we eventually had to find other accommodation at additional cost as we had already paid for the night
NO SERVICE WAS PROVIDED

Due to COvid 19 it was advisable for me 72 years old NOT to travel.
Old House Lodge refused to refund the money I had paid in full despite my having cancelled 5 days before. In these extenuating circumstances my feeling is that this was most unfair.

what an amazing place, so comfortable and really great staff, we loved it. opted for supper in the restaurant and it was superb, tasty lamb and great dessert. the location is just far enough off the road to not have traffic noise, and the decoration and comfort of the room was superb

had a great stay before at cottage outside and rooms at end of house closest to parking lot. this time we stayed in last two rooms on right hand side of house. basin in room 6 wouldn't empty water - plug broken. no milk for coffee. alarm not set properly and made beeping noise for long period keeping us awake. was given weird welcome where lady at desk had the owner speaking on speaker phone and the main subject was what we should be paying - seemed inappropriate that we could and it seemed there was a problem. we feel the rate should have included breakfast. no option that i saw on website to have breakfast at an extra rate (i may well have missed it). the fridge in room 9 is a wine cooler fridge which doesn't function as a normal fridge as i was told it would. bathroom floor in number 6 seems unfinished and unsightly. last stay was much better.

I stayed at Old House Lodge for one night with a friend on our way back home from the west coast. We had a warm reception, and little Jan Hendrik (the little Pomeranian) is absolutely adorable! Old House Lodge has a very relaxed atmosphere and we were allowed to use their freezer and big fridge for some of our goods. I love the high ceilings and classic furniture. Can definitely recommend, good value for money

Driving into Beaufort West I certainly didn't expect The Old House Lodge to be the gem that it was. The staff are incredibly friendly and the Lodge itself has some of the most comfortable and homely rooms I have ever stayed in. The breakfast was absolutely delicious and everyone from the ladies in the kitchen to the famous Jan Hendrik were ecstatic to see us enjoying ourselves. One of the best accommodations I have ever stayed in and I will definitely be coming back for another affordable yet unmatched experience.

We enjoyed the great service coupled with good food and hospitality shown by the staff. Rooms away from main road were certainly less noisy than rooms on the road side. Facilities were great and parking was safe.
