On our way down to Pietermaritzburg. Me and my family decided to stay over at Farquhar. Decent and clean place but needs a bit of personal touch. a Lack of decor is probarly the biggest upset. The breakfast were great and the staff very friendly.

The place was dirty. There were 2 dogs running around the yard and barking. The staff walked past my door several times, talking at the top of their voices. There was hammering and drilling for several hours during the afternoon. It was an unpleasant stay!

Farquhar lodge has a rating of "3 Stars", but my husband and I felt it should have a "5 Star" rating, firstly we were so impressed when we got to our room and the bathroom was smelling of Domestos, I'm addicted on cleaning with Domestos, so you can imagine how happy I was to be smelling a familiar scent, what...
