It was simply delightful!

Wouldn't hesitate to recommend this place. The accommodation is tasteful, thoughtfully done and very comfortable. Our hostess couldn't have been more caring - a perfect last night to our holiday. Perfection situated between the Cape and Natal.

Lovely place, conveniently situated.

I'd like to go back for a longer visit than my quick overnight stop between CPT and PMB.

Very neat and friendly accommodation.

We were on a 1470 km bicycle tour from Witbank to Mossel Bay and the rest at Shanks was the highlight. We were warmly welcomed and all the facilities were excellent. Morene took care of us and even helped wash our cycling clothes, it is truly appreciated. Lovely farm dinner and breakfast spoiled us a lot.

Baie netjiese en vriendelike verblyf.

Op ons 1470 km fiets toer vanaf Witbank na Mosselbaai was die rus by Shanks 'n hoogtepunt. Ons was hartlik verwelkom en al die geriewe was puik. Morene het ons op die hande gedra en self ons gehelp met ons fietsry klere te was, dit word opreg waardeer. Heerlike plaas aandete en ontbyt het ons baie bederf.

Safe and stunning.

We were accommodated with all our requests and nothing was any problem for our hosts. The cottage was perfect with TV, aircon and lovely extras (fresh buns, milk and tea and coffee). Highly recommended for family as well.

Heerlik ontspannend.

Pragtige plaas. Gasvry. Heerlike bord boerekos aandete op versoek. Kinders het die hanslammers geniet. Die kamers en geriewe is groter en beter as wat fotos laat blyk. Aan te beveel.

Baie tuis.

Na 'n lang dag op die pad was dit 'n baie lekker oornagplek. Groen gras vir die kinders om te hardloop. Het baie tuis gevoel. Baie dankie.

Netjies, absolute gemoedrus en baie moeite gedoen.

Ons het baie lekker by Shanksfarm gebly. Dit was netjies, genoeg voorsiening vir hitte as dit koud is saans en selfs ekstra moeite om vir ons ontbyt te voorsien al het ons douvoor dag reeds begin ry. Sal dit beslis aanbeveel!

Very pleasant. Nice meals. Comfortable room.

Pleasant accommodation and reception. Dinner is offered and no restaurant will be able to match it. The farm is outside of Steynsburg and that counts in its favour.

Baie aangenaam. Lekker etes. Gerieflike kamer.

Aangename verblyf en ontvangs. Aandetes word aangebied, en geen restaurant sal daarby kan kersvashou nie. Die plaas is buite Steynsburg, en dit tel tot sy voordeel.

Dit was heerlik, gasvry en pragtig.

Die kamers is pragtig netjies en keurig versorg. Die tuin is groot en ideaal vir jong kinders met baie energie. Die kos is ware boerekos met baie liefde en smaak. Ons sal beslis weer daar oorbly.

'n Rustige nag na 'n heerlike aandete.

Daar heers 'n rustige atmosfeer vir mense wat lekker wil rus na 'n hele dag op die pad. Die aandete en ontbyt was besonder lekker. Die gasvrou was baie vriendelik. Daar was genoeg warm water en beddegoed vir die koue buite. Die kamer was gerieflik en skoon. Al klagte is dat die handdoeke baie klein is vir die koue winter na 'n warm stort.
