Alexii wrote a review Mar 2020

We had a beautiful stay at Glennfinnan Guest House which made the perfect location to explore Langebaan and it’s surroundings. We felt at home immediately after our arrival not only because of the familiarity of the accommodation but also because of unmatched hospitality of our host Pat. Due to the corona virus we had reroute our trip and decided to stay the rest of our vacation at the beautiful west coast in Langebaan. Despite the uncertainty of our travel back home (flight cancellations, travel ban etc.)
Pat managed to set the perfect atmosphere in this situation and allowed us to still enjoy the last three days of of our vacation. The guest house is perfectly situated to explore Langebaan and the nature reserves nearby (west coast national park, beautiful bays, buffelsfontein nature reserve).

Our room was very cozy, clean with a comfortable bed and a stunning view over the bay. The breakfast was very tasty and freshly made and the weather was nice enough to have breakfast outside overlooking the bay. Pat also made us a breakfast package as our flight was leaving very early from Cape Town. We would highly recommend a stay at Glennfinnan Guest House and can only extend our gratitude to Pat for making our stay so enjoyable despite our situation.

Enjoy your stay :)

The hospitality at this place is beyond remarkable from the welcoming to the showcasing of our room and the guesthouse itself, the breakfast was delicious all the time. The host couple was very accommodating and made sure my family and I felt at home. We even had a Christmas dinner celebration with other families and couples at the guesthouse courtesy of and organized by the host couple. How incredible! I will definitely recommend this place to others and will visit again.

What a wonderful place to stay in Langebaan. Great views and the most comfortable beds. The restaurants and beach is within walking distance. Patrice was so patient and accommodating with our booking constantly being changed due to lockdown. He also makes the BEST breakfast. We will certainly be back.

Best hospitality with a touch of the human soul, excellent facilities and great hosting by Pat & Sandra. Stayed over Xmas and we were made to feel at home, a special Xmas breakfast and a “family dinner” set up. The magic is in the small but well thought personal touches by the hosts! ....it was really difficult say goodbye!

The owners live on site so there is always somebody at hand to answer any questions.

Breakfasts were good each day - eating outside on the veranda.

The owners assisted with recommendations for trips out and restaurants etc.

A truly captivating retreat situated in one of the most scenic and tranquil places on the West Coast. From the hospitable atmosphere of the generously spacious accommodation to the impeccably warm welcome of the staff, we never felt closer to home. Hardly a stones throw away from the sea and within walking distance of the beach, immensely ideal for those who wish to explore the beauty of the West Coast. An absolutely exemplary experience! 10/10

This modern room was large and lovely, so comfortable. There’s a heat on the bed as well as a down comforter. Pillows were perfect. Wifi worked very well. There is a secured parking area. The neighborhood is quiet. Breakfast can be booked for a small fee but we did not do that. Highly recommend this accommodation!

Your Guest House is a very unique Guest House and is kept clean. I will always stay at Glenfinnan Guest House if I visit Langebaan. The owners, Sandra and Patrice are just too hospitable and have good public relations. I never thought we would have a braai this last Christmas since would be away from home but thanks to your thoughts Sandra and Patrice to make us feel at home. We had a home away from home. We really enjoyed our stay. Your housekeeper is very pleasant and polite and always smiling and ready to help. I was shocked to see such a nicely arranged neat room for me and my two daughters. Our comfort at your place was more than what we expected. Your breakfast was super to the extend that I tried to look for the sausages you were giving us. The place is as neat as pin and added to it ever smiling Sandra and Patrice. I hope we will meet again because I was so impressed. God really showed me the best of Langebaan and the time we stayed there became too short. Keep it up!
