Family Breakaway
Seamus McGuigan, South Africa - 19 September 2016
We arrived at Lavender Hills at short notice and were warmly greeted by our Host Sharon and shown to our room Augusta...the room was immaculate with all the necessary amenities.
The establishment had other bookings from a golfing group which appears to be its target market.Their is a vast array of units to suit all group sizes from couples to a unit which can sleep 23.
One constructive criticism would be if DSTV is not available then dont waste time and money putting a TV in the just dosnt get utilised.

Our stay was comfortable, the rooms are clean and neat, and our host friendly. Not bad for the traveller looking for overnight accommodation. There are no restaurant or pub facilities on site making this a strictly self catering venue. The attention to detail is somewhat lacking in terms of equipment and bathroom toiletries however, making this a 2 star venue at a 3 star price.
A wonderful stay
Norah Exall, South Africa - 07 January 2014

Not a honeymoon suite
Maureen Joubert, South Africa - 02 October 2012
We stayed in the Olive room which was advertised as the honeymoon suite. The room does NOT qualify for this status and definitely doesn't qualify for the higher price we paid compared to the other rooms. There wasn't sufficient curtains in the room - a spot light in the yard shone straight in our room and light up the whole room. The mattress has seen better days and I would recommend getting a new one before letting new guests stay there. The "honeymoon suite" had no bath, the toilet made noise during the night and it was next to the kids play ground who started playing at 7:00. On the site it say "spectacular views", but all we saw was the kids play ground and other houses.
Home away from home
Johannie Van Rensburg, South Africa - 12 April 2012
We felt at home and enjoyed the peace and quiet. Will definately return.
Ester Janse Van Vuuren, South Africa - 01 January 2012
Ons het ons verblyf baie geniet by die gastehuis. Die huise was skoon en netjies. Glen en sy span en die restaurant personeel was vriendelik en hulpvaardig. Die kos was baie lekker en word baie netjies voorgesit en die kelners is vriendelik. Alles was net voortreflik. Ons sal enige tyd weer terug gaan na die gastehuis, en sal aan enige iemand aanbeveel om daar te gaan te gaan bly. Nogmaals dankie aan Glen en sy span, asook die restaurant personeel vir die vriendelike en hulpvaardige diens. We enjoyed our stay. The house was clean and neat. Glen and his team were friendly and helpful. Everything was outstanding. The food was delicious and well presented. We will definitely stay here again and will recommend it to anyone. Once again, thank you to Glen, his team and the restaurant staff for the friendly, helpful service.
Very peaceful and great service

Absolutely GREAT
Anonymous, South Africa - 18 December 2009
The first impression was great as the grounds are clearly well maintained, and most of the gardens were in full bloom. The buildings are really charming and offer the best privacy as you are not crowded on top of each other. There is absolutely no road or town noise and the peacefulness almost rings in your ears on arrival. We stayed in the Cappuccino Self-Catering Chalet which had a charm about it without making you feel like coffee (despite the themed decor). The suite was very clean and the linen was crisp, white and fresh. The accommodation was ample and the air conditioner was a great relief from the soaring temperatures. The braai facility is situated directly on your patio which is much better than having to share a communal braai. The grounds have a lovely pool, which was quite private despite being in the middle of the grounds. although there are other chalets around, you never feel overlooked. The only suggestion I could make is that there could have been a couch or casual chairs as you could only sit at the kitchen chairs or the wrought iron patio chairs which had no cushioning. The kitchen lacks a much needed sharp knife which resulted in cutting everything with a butter knife. A few bowls for food service and microwave use would have also been welcomed. Otherwise, this is definitely our only choice when visiting Parys in future. Happy Customer Kim

The stay was great, weather was a bit unexpected. Would like more info available for selection of day visits, things to do and historical info at the guest farm.
Lucky Mochalibane, South Africa - 17 February 2009
The venue proved to be a perfect setting which was further enhanced by the courtesy and hospitality of the hosts. the room on arrival was tidy and neat and prepared. overall the place is well kept, easy to find, well branded and within a short distance to the other attractive sites including the vaal river. the remoteness of the place gives one a sense of comfort, security and safety. a lovely place worth visiting again and again and again.i shall certainly recommend it to the world.
Gerhard Myburgh, South Africa - 13 October 2008
Lavander Hills is a recommended establishment and worth the stay. Rooms was very nice and clean, everyone is very friendly and helpful. Will definitely come back again.
Will definitely return
Donovan Mackier, South Africa - 13 April 2008
I must compliment the management of the establishment. I would recommend any person to go there if they just want to break away, to be calm and just to get out of the city. I will definitely return next year and I will definitely stay longer.
Veery good

What a pleasure!!
Victor Botes, South Africa - 18 September 2006
With hosts like Marianne and Glenn, Parys could not ask for a better B&B. The hospitality combined with room designs with its different themes brought new light to a home away from home. Will definitely be visiting them again.

Place is well-priced, the owners friendly and very accommodating. You really get the feeling that they are proud of the establishment and have put a huge amount of effort into it.

Lavender Hills
Only one hour's drive from Johannesburg, bordering on the quaint, bustling Vaal River Free State town of Parys, lies Lavender Hills Guest Farm. Lovingly owned and operated by Marianne and Glenn, Lavender Hills is a unique concept in luxury self catering accommodation and is an ideal getaway for the entire family.

Featuring 24 beautifully appointed and individually decorated units, Lavender Hills is a perfect escape from city life and a tonic for the weary soul. Come and recharge your batteries in the tranquility of wide open spaces, star-filled skies and unwind to Marianne and Glenn's famous hospitality.

The Free State landscape gladdens my heart, no matter what my mood. When I am here I feel that nothing can shut me in, that my thoughts can roam as far as the horizons. Nelson Mandela.

From 15 November until 15 January, we will only take a minimum of two night stays.
