“Very comfortable stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

The bed was super comfy, and the breakfast was delicious. Very friendly, helpful staff. The frogs can be rather loud at night, but I actually never had a problem getting to sleep.
Located just 5 mins drive from Hatfield Gautrain station.
Ngiyabonga kakhulu, baie dankie, and salani kahle! :)

I spent every night in a different hotel last week and found Farmers Folly to be very comfortable - in a beautiful setting, lovely rooms and efficient personnel. Will definitely chose to stay there again.

I was met by very helpful and friendly staff, nothing was a problem. The setting and room were beautiful. I will definitely use Farmers Folly in the future. Many thanks for a great stay as short as it was.

Thank you Simoné, Theresa and all the staff for looking after me so well during my visit. This friendly guest house was ideally situated in a beautiful location within a short taxi ride (thank you Amos) of the train station, where I was working and all the amenities that Pretoria has to offer. The house was beautiful and stylish, the food great and the service excellent. My room was was enormous and the wifi worked well.

I will definitely be staying here again on future business trips.

Its a cozy exquisite guest house, that feels like you are right at home. Will definitely choose this place each time I'm in Pretoria. The staff service was brilliant, I worked odd hours but my take away breakfast was packed brilliantly.

I spent a few days at Farmers Folly whilst on a combined private and business trip. The overall standard was excellent, rooms were clean and comfortable. Staff were well organised, friendly and proffessional. The breakfast was delicious, with a full variety to choose from. in conclusion, I would happily stay there again!
