Our family came together to celebrate Oupa's 90th birthday. Oupa's lack of mobility made it difficult to move about but the beautiful surroundings and breathtaking views made up for it. Villa 2 was "the perfect" setting for family time with its open plan and gorgeous furnishings. We loved every minute of our stay! I think our photos speak best. (Address...

We had a wonderful stay at Spanish Farm Guest lodge. Everyone was friendly and helpful from management to the cleaners. It was clean and beautiful and we had everything and more. :-) My only negative would be the breakfast. For R200 per person you expect more and better quality for the cooked breakfast....

My sincere apologies that the cooked breakfast was not up to standard, we possibly had an intern making breakfast and not sure why it wasn't great. We do have a large variety of fresh fruits, jogurts, fresh rolls and a selection...

I used to be one of those people who thought if I'm not at home I deserve to be in a hotel. Spanish farm turned that view upside down when it introduced me real hospitality with the ability to feel you're home. Staff was great, pool was always clean with towels on hand after an afternoon dip. The garden/views? Where...
