We had a wonderful time at Conville Guest Farm with friendly hosts. An error with the booking was resolved immediately and we were sad to leave the following day as we would have liked to spend more time there and will be back for sure. We hope that this gem will be preserved for may more guests and future generations.Establishments Response:Hi Jan,Thank you very much for your kind words. It's always a pleasure sharing our family history/ home with our guests.We are glad you both enjoyed your stay so much, and look forward to seeing you again someday.RegardsBruce,Linda and Antony Gerrand

At first I was very impressed by the other reviews of previous guests to Conville Guest Farm.  However, on our arrival we found the Family Room extremely cold.  There were only 2 small fan heaters - one in each room, and the one in the main bedroom did not even have an adapter so that we could connect it to the power outlet.  We also found loose hanging fittings, falling out of the walls - seems to be some kinds of electrical fittings - just dangling by the wires.  We also had our grandson of nearly 2 years old with us - and in the bathroom we found medication in the one...

Amazing old house which has pretty much been kept as it would have been all those years ago. It has been in the family for some time now. You are really staying in the family's house with separate entrances to the rooms. That, of course comes with all the family pets and chatting to the owners too. Listening to Anthony tell me a quick history of the house and the current drought struggles was interesting. We felt like we could have a family game of soccer on the lawn with no problem at all - the location is really beautiful. We had a delicious breakfast at the house. The house does need some...

Beautiful old farmhouse, in a tranquil setting, felt like we were transported back a hundred years. Hosts were very friendly and breakfast was good.  Overnighted but would have loved to have had extra time to explore some more.

What a beautiful home to spend the night in!! I spent some time in the early evening just watching the sun setting, with the three family dogs keeping me company. This house has been lovingly preserved, and it felt as though I had stepped back in time.  Lovely to have a friendly host, who personally prepared our breakfast. I would certainly recommend Conville to anyone either passing through Aliwal North, or intending to spend some time investigating this interesting little town.

The Museum is only about a 10 minute walk from the start of the mountain hiking trail and a wonderful place to see how the old lived in our area. Smithfield was first founded in 1848 as a church centre on the farm Waterval, owned by CS Halse. As...
