We were so surprised at how nice and quiet this farm was. The rooms where so clean and there was everything you could need in the room. Lynette was such a stunning and friendly host. The pre packed braai packs and salads were delicious. Wood at the braai area everything! Thank you so much for a lovely stay.

Great accommodation, great service, getting so much more than what you pay for. Friendly service and just overall a great experience. Space to walk, braai or just chill under the trees. A great break away from the city. Lynette, out host was the best. Will definitely visit them again

We booked the cottages for our son's wedding on the farm next door. The cottages were all neat and clean and all the groomsmen enjoyed the braai area. Lynette opened the bar area for our use when it started raining. Great experience. Very friendly staff. Lynette very helpful

We chose Morning Glory Cottages as a stopover on our drive from Johannesburg to Cape Town without any prior recommendation, and were absolutely thrilled with the experience. We stayed in the 'Honeymoon Suite' and aside from the beautiful accommodation, the setting and the location were out of this world. A fantastic way to break up a long journey, and all the praise to Lynette and her team for exemplary service.

Our stay was wonderful, unique, and tranquil. Had a walk around and enjoyed the farm and the majestic horses. Our room was neat, nicely decorated, and comfortable. Staff were friendly and helpful. We will definitely return for future trips.

The location is very accessible from Colesberg on the R58. Very intimate cottages. I was in the Chamomile suite - spacious rondavel with a creatively decorated bathroom. A big double bed (not two single beds joined in most places). The dim lights around the whole room provide that intimate ambiance (I was alone by the way). Bar fridge with all the goodies to end a long day of travel. Home-cooked supper meal for you to warm up in the microwave, while watching TV. REAL Nguni hide on the floor-I could see the J8 branding. The fan makes the room to be cool all round. A huge display mirror on real wood frame. Real KAROO feeling.
