Cosy little place. Neat and clean rooms. Love the fireplaces scattered around. Heating in all the rooms, so don't worry too much about the chilly winter. Black and white movies are good for a laugh. The pub is well stocked. The food is lovely and plenty. We were here at beginning of August, would love to see the gardens in the summer. Not too much to do around, but nice scenery and if you are willing to drive a bit there are a few things to see and do not too far away. Friendly and helpful staff. Would love to go back for another stay.

Green Lantern is a great place to stop over! Friendly service and amazing traditional food. The pub has character and history to it. You will find a donkey in the pub that will keep you company Will definitely visit again!

We spent a night on a trip between Durban and Cape Town. The rooms are spacious and clean. It was cold outside but the beds had nice thick blankets and electric blankets. Dinner was absolutely delicious and the main house and dining room are beautiful. The staff were lovely. I am sure they cater mostly for people looking for an overnight spot but I could easily imagine spending a couple of nights there reading books and drinking scotch by the fireplace.

Always an amazing visit. This one was a very quick one as I needed to fetch my mom. Stunning garden, food always good and roaring fire in the lounge. Bill and Gail are the owners and really nice people.

A good stop-over place on one's way to Durban (or back) to Gauteng, with breakfast included. Food tasty, but the filter coffee is really not up to par. The staff is friendly and the rooms comfy. The beautiful garden is relaxing and the pub a nice place to mingle with other guests and locals. This 125-year old building ( which started off as a hostel) can do with a little more renovation here and there, but all in all: good accommodation at very reasonable rates.

A nice clean country hotel set in the heart of van reenen. Built in 1892 and recently improved by the new owners each room is comfortable and fresh. The English gardens are absolutely stunning and a cup of a tea with some home made treat is a must and if staying for dinner the oxtail is out of this world.
