“stylish guest house in Greyton”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2013

We stayed at the Old Village Lodge last night and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. Nicolaas was a very attentive and wonderful welcoming host. The house is beautifully designed and the garden a delight. A wonderfully prepared and delicious breakfast served personally by Nicolaas - he baked the croissants himself and made the jams too. We will definitely be recommending this to others and returning there ourselves. The village of McGregor is also peaceful and unspoilt with natural beauty. A haven from the rush of city life

Room Tip: We had room 3 which seems to be the best one

We were warmly welcomed by our host Nicolaas on arrival, who had kindly made a booking at a nearby restaurant as we arrived quite late. The guest house is tastefully decorated and the 2 rooms we occupied were beautiful and spacious, with one overlooking the amazing garden. The electric blankets were especially welcome. Breakfast was such a treat! Nicolaas has a real knack in the kitchen and everything was delicious. We found the location to be ideal, with everything we could possibly need, including Temenos Retreat Centre, just a stone's throw away. A peaceful location and great host I can truly recommend.

Should you visit the special place which is Temenos at McGregor and you are looking for alternative accommodation, you need not look any further than across the road. Old Village Lodge offers extremely comfortable and aesthetically-pleasing accommodation with careful attention to detail. And Nicolaas is very happy to accommodate requests. Truly a pleasure in every respect. Zarine Roodt

Room Tip: The room with a bath and patio overlooking the garden.

We have just returned from Old Village Lodge in McGregor - and definitely made the right choice for our accommodation! The quality of our communication with Nicolaas prior to our arrival was prescient as we we were welcomed warmly to a lovely home from home. Our very comfortable room overlooked a beautiful garden, and having electric blankets was a special touch, and much appreciated.

Our hosts were gracious, not intrusive, yet available and concerned for our comfort; the breakfast was delicious; and the ambience was wonderfully conducive to fulfilling our intention: to have a lazy, peaceful, and gloriously indulgent weekend in a beautiful setting.

We intend going back - for a longer period next time, in the not too distant future..... Thanks so much, Nicolaas!

Recommended from the Springfield winery we spend one beautiful night at that lovely guesthouse. We really enjoyed the lovely little village of McGregor, had a very nice room with an old-fashioned but functional bath room. Also breakfast was perfect, especially the homemade croissants. We decided to visit McGregor again and then will ofcourse stay at the Old Village Lodge.

From the moment you arrive, you just know you have made the right choice of place to stay.

From Nicolaas's very warm welcome to the tasteful decor, choice of furnishings and immaculate gardens that also include a lovely pool area, you wont go wrong by choosing the Old Village Lodge for your stay in McGregor.

It is also situated in an ideal location,Tebaldi's restaurant in the grounds of Temenos is on the opposite side of the road, other restaurants are a 5 to 10 minute walk.

For the ultimate relaxing weekend, combine your stay by booking a treatment/massage with Deirdre Scott-Rogerson which is highly recommended.

Recently I spent 3 nights at the Old Village Lodge with my sister. I cannot recommend it too highly and it rates amongst the very best places I have ever stayed in. It's difficult to know where to start the praise. Nicolaas is a charming host and nothing was too much trouble. He organised our restaurant bookings and teamed us up with a lovely local couple for the village quiz. The rooms are beautifully decorated and spotlessly clean, the garden is wonderfully tranquil, the breakfasts outstanding and McGregor is a delightful village well worth visiting. All the wonderful recommendations are thoroughly deserved. I hope that it's not fully booked when I next visit so that we can stay there again.
