          Staying at Farmers Folly was really a great experience, friendly staff who went out of their way to be helpful and super breakfast. The rooms are clean and very comfortable. Thank you guys for making our visit such a good one.

          Comfortable, clean, quiet and well run guest house. The facilities are old (read huge bath tub and management follow up) and new (excellent wifi) where they matter most. I'll be back. The proximity to all of Pretoria's business hubs and eateries also helps.

          Great place. The staff was attentive. The owner is very nice and cares for the lovely garden. Really great places to sit outside on the veranda and work or chat. Close to Capital Craft Beer Academy, also a plus. Will stay there again.
