“Lovely Guest House”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

I stayed for a week at La Vieille Ferme and it was a very pleasant stay. Louise is a perfect host, and let you feel like home since the first meeting.
The breakfast is superb, served in a very elegant dining room, in which you can also meet Lousie friends: two beautiful dogs and two cats.
The room is one of the largest I ever seen in this kind of structures, and the bathroom too. One great plus is the kitchen entrance, that allows you to arrange some meal in case you're late at work, or you prefer to stay ata home in the evening.
I will of course suggest this guesthous as wel as I would of course come back again.

Friendly welcome, room was clean, attractive, quiet, grounds were nicely manicured, location convenient enough for something not directly in town (didn't want to deal with city traffic). Breakfast was good and as quick as I needed it to be as I was on business. Wish I had known about the great Japanese restaurant right nearby. Will have to try it on my next stay. Recommend!

Overall Great Value. Very Clean. Spacious Rooms.
Compares favourably with other B&Bs in the area.
I have nothing more to say, but it seems this review requires me to make up 200 characters. I think I am almost there.

The rooms are brand new and spotless with a warm, comfortable atmosphere. The food was excellent. In so many ways this was much more luxurious than we anticipated. The location is perfect for getting around Sandton as well as a trip into J'burg. I can't imagine a better stay exists in the city. My only regret is checking out.

I can really recommend La Vieille Ferme to Business and Leisure travellers alike. I had to be in JHB for a 3 week project, and La Vieille became my second home. The rooms are very neat and clean, the hosts are relaxed and flexible and I love the fact that the rooms have a kitchenette where you can warm up a meal or have some milk and fruit in the fridge. Louise also cooks dinner every night, which was often a lifesaver for me – hearty, healthy home-cooked meal.
Thank you for the excellent services and facilities!

We were a team of seven staying for a week for a golf tournament at CCJ.
Thank you to Louise and Grant for making our stay memorable: from the polite and friendly welcome; the modernly furnished clean rooms and the stunning meals - both breakfasts and dinner - it was the best accommodation setup ever for our golf team! We felt like we had hit the jackpot with our choice!
We appreciate you going the extra mile!!!

Six spacious, comfortable, top quality rooms with full en-suite and small kitchenette in a purpose-built wing to this lovely property in the heart of a secure residential area on the top end of Rivonia. Each room really is finely set up and the "nice touches" include: stocked fridge with reasonably priced "honesty box" system, sherry on arrival, heater, electric blanket, Wifi, very clean, comfortable and of a high standard. Breakfast was no exception - top quality. Host - Louise - was very professional, and very friendly.

This is a great place for a business stayover and works extremely well for the businesman wanting the quality of a good hotel but the hospitality of a B&B. Ive only spent 1 night here but will definitely book in again if i need to spend another night in this area.
