My Special stay at Farmer's Folly Guesthouse
An unforgettable experience and memorable stay at Farmer's Folly. I I'll definitely come back with family. Quiet, safe and very cosy !!!

Comfortable and secure
We spent two nights at Farmers Folly in mid September and enjoyed our stay. The room, including the bathroom, was spacious and clean. Breakfast was good, as were the helpful and friendly staff. The gardens were beautifully manicured and there is a pool available. Our room was opposite a pretty pond - resident frogs were noisy in the evening, but quieted during the night. FF is a secure venue within a gated community, and a short drive to local shopping and restaurant precincts.

Very Good8.0
Great location and property.
After ringing the doorbell, I was received by a half-a sleep (or just woken up) lady, with messy hair, bare feet and a very short dress. She was polite enough and showed me to my room, but did not show me around the property, or where I will have breakfast. The property is stunning, the big windows, big doors and large living areas is exquisite. The property is well maintained and the staff are all friendly. Great location with a very safe feel to it.
