Modernized rooms in an historic hotel located on the shores of Langebaan lagoon. Excellent food, helpful and kind and very hardworking staff. Our stay here was so relaxing. Lovely pool, billiards room, library and of course a great place to enjoy sundowners! Low staff levels one night resulted in a longer than usual wait for dinner. However, the excellent staff...

Only one complaint, no hand soap at basin, otherwise loved th body wash and hand lotion. The food was tasty and well presented.

We booked last minute on Expedia expecting a double room in the main building with the old world charm. A cosy room on our way through to Cape Town. After taking time to locate our booking I was informed our room was unavailable, we also had to inform the hotel who and how much to pay for the room. Not...

All the furniture in the room was done in old traditional farm house style. Lovely comfy beds. Twin beds but not noticable. The food was really great and in the usual south African traditonal. The Hotel keeps to old style qualities like the Old coal stove to keep warm in winter with but with modern conveniences. Being a South African...

The Farmhouse is perfectly located with stunning views overlooking the Langebaan Lagoon. The verandah has big comfy couches where you can enjoy a drink in peace and quiet, while watching the birds in the pretty garden. There's loads of authentic artefacts from a bygone era if you're interested in history. It's not full of locals....

I booked on their own website and requested a room in the 'historical building' as I read here there was another location they might give you. Indeed after paying and arriving for my 5 night booking, the receptionist told me to 'just walk 200m up the hill' to my room. And I "won't even need to come back because there...
