We use this facility for training and workshop sessions. The attendees love this place and cannot wait to be back for the treat at The Farmhouse. The facilities are great, staff is friendly and go out of their way to assist. The food is absolutely fantastic!

One of the more tranquil settings in this big city has been a favorite B&B for me during the past 2 years of business trips to Jo'burg. The rooms are well equipped and the service is always good, but the excellence of the breakfast is the dominant reason for my regular return visits.

The manager is rude and disrespectful. I heard her swearing at a staff member. She could barely communicate with me. The place is beautiful but i would never go back there. Unless the are under better management.

I have been here maybe 4 times in as many years, on business. Love the place, for its beauty and tranquility, and for the friendly staff, and also for the excellent home cooking. The centre piece is the grounds, with an inviting garden and water features centred with a seating area surrounded by a moat and fountains. Trees and birds...

under new management, this B and B is a magical place to stay with beautiful grounds and a very comfortable room. The staff could not have been more helpful and the food was delicious. I would not hesitate to recommend this to friends and anyone who loves an unusual place to relax away from the cares of the city life.

A very well maintained property. A beautiful garden and peaceful environment to stay in an it is nice and quiet due to it being a distance from the CBD and other larger settlements. The heat got a bit unbearable at times as the air-con wasn't working properly but, it was a pleasant stay regardless!

To pay R1500 odd for a night at The Farmhouse on 2nd Avenue, Linden, Johannesburg, one would expect closer attention to detail... In the shower was a complimentary shower gel and body lotion, however no shampoo or conditioner, no shower cap, nor was there any new bar of soap provided, but I later noticed some soap that a previous guest...
