              Conville is really a must stay for travellers from Gauteng on their way to East London. A wonderful old house with the most amazing antique furniture, the friendliest dogs and an amazing host, Linda. It is just outside of town, on the river, so very quiet and secluded. The breakfast the next morning was delicious! Great coffee, lovely scrambled eggs en the best sausage I’ve tasted in a long time. We will never sleep anywhere else when we pass this way again.

              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...
