                      Dis lekker groot huis met baie spasie. Vir kinders is dit n droom, tuin om te hardloop en n swembad. Dis so rustig op die plaas en die feeling in die huis is amazing. Dis so rustig. Heidi en Hugo is ongelooflike vriendelike en behulpsame mense.

                      This is a spacious and well-thought out guest house with well-equipped rooms and a huge communal dining / sitting room that has panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. There are basic cooking facilities (microwave, fridge and kettle) in the rooms but we could also use the large communal kitchen. The owners are very friendly and helpful, we felt so welcome. We joined them on their morning dog-walks, learning a lot about the farming and area at the same time.Our room had a little stoep with table and chairs, leading to the garden. The garden is lovely with a swing and trampoline, fire-p...

                      We loved our stay at Merwenstein. It was perfect for our little family of 4. We enjoyed the pool and the farm walk with Hugo. Heidi made the best breakfast everyday and taught my little brother how to play a German card game. It’s a peaceful place to go when you want to be away from the everyday rush in life. Two things I would prefer is if the beds were softer as they weren’t very comfortable but we slept fine. Also if there was a fridge in our own room. We made use of the common sharing fridge which may have not worked out so nicely had there been other guests as well. Other than that, it...

                      We just stayed at Merwenstein Guestfarm for the week over Christmas.  It was a great holiday, the accommodation was great, spacious rooms with ceiling fans and a chill-out area.  Our hosts were incredibly friendly and helpful without being intrusive... Oh and the river was incredible!  A perfect stay...
