Enjoyed my stay at Glenfinnan. The room I stayed in is beautiful with a wonderful view over Langebaan Lagoon. Kay and Jim are attentive and excellent hosts that make you feel at home. The dining room is perfectly situated so that you can enjoy your meals with a pleasant view over the lagoon.

Stayed: November 2013, travelled on business

The room I stayed in was very comfortable, neat and tastefully furnished (ground floor). The room is spacious and equipped with DSTV as well as internet and bar fridge. Nice spacious shower with bathrobes, which is unusual for a bed and breakfast. Hosts were friendly and welcoming but not invading, I enjoyed chatting to them over breakfast. They made some good recommendations in the area. Breakfast is served between 7-9, which I found a bit early especially if one is on holiday but I have to comment on Kay's fluffy "real" omelette, I say real because I only know of one other person that can make an omelette like that and it is my grand-mother. I highly recommend it! The breakfast menu is well varied and the muffins that she bakes are equally delicious. It was perfect for my mini-holiday and I will be back.

I stayed at the Glenfinnan Guest house with my girlfriend and two friends for the last three nights of a holiday in South Africa. It was the perfect way to end a fantastic holiday. On arrival we were met by Jim and Kay, the owners, who were very welcoming. They showed us to our rooms which were beautiful. They both recommended great restaurants and attractions in the local area. They provided us with sun umbrellas for the beach etc.

I unfortunately was not very well one morning, missing out on breakfast. Later that day when I was feeling better, Kay very kindly offered to male some lunch for me as I missed breakfast.

To sum up, it is a lovely welcoming guest house in the beautiful area of Langebaan, only minutes away from the National Park.

We all loved it and would recommend it. We will hopefully be back soon when next in South Africa.

Stayed: March 2013, travelled with friends

The host and hostess were friendly and most welcoming, they sold the area with their local knowledge. The rooms were fully equipped, spotlessly clean, and provided everything a traveller could want, including daily fresh milk in the room fridge.
breakfast was a kings feast, with out of this world omlettes and home baking.
Cant recommend this establishment highly enough, truly a home from home experience, would definitely return.

Room Tip: The guest house did not have a pool or fitness centre; all rooms were good

as a family with 2 adult daughters we stayed at the guest house for 3 nights. we really enjoyed the rooms and hospitality of owners Kay and her husband. unfortunately the husband lost his cool the last day. one of my daughters left mascara on the brown towels. he was furious and took it out on me. As a housewife I know how easy it is to clean it. This is very unfortunately as we had such a good time. Needless to say we will not go back.

We only stayed 2 nights at Glenfinnan but will stay longer next time.
The room was light and airy and a nice touch was that towelling dressing gowns were provided for the guests.
The breakfast was lovely home cooked by Kay, everything you could think of was there for you.
After a tiring journey from Cape Town Kay was there to welcome us and made us feel very welcome, as did Bill working out our route for our next port of call.
If you are planning a trip to Llangaban look no further I guarantee you will not be dissapointed.

Room Tip: We liked the Lagoon room sit out on the balcony and you can see the sea
