Was a lovely true old farm experience. Close enough to the highway to be a quick stop in between places but gar enough to be completely quiet. The nights are void of light polution so the place has great star viewing.Dinner is pricey but if you are looking for a traditional farm cooked meal it is a must. You can hear other geust from the rooms. But the overall people who stays there are sound concious so it doesnt realy bother you. Rooms are old but lovely.

Wonderful true Karoo farm getaway. We stay here often on the trip to and from Cape Town to Johannesburg. Warm and friendly staff that make you feel at home. Do a game drive if you can to see the bison and various buck or a hike up the koppie for sunset.

We had the most wonderful and relaxing family break here for 3 nights. This place isn't just an overnight stop between JHB and CT but a destination in and of itself. The staff were amazing, the food was delicious and the house extremely comfortable and tastefully decorated. Highly recommend.
