To comply with national legislation, for the safety and comfort of all our guests and for the satisfaction and enjoyment of future guests, we would like to draw your attention to a small number of rules and regulations.

  1. In compliance with the 2002 Immigration Act, all guests are required to register upon arrival. Forms are provided in your cottage for this purpose. Please fill them in and hand them back to us or our Cottage Manager during your stay or leave them in the cottage upon departure.
  2. We reserve the absolute right, at all times, to prevent admission or readmission to the farm, or to require immediate departure without notice, of guests, their friends and/or relatives.
  3. Only those guests that have booked and registered may stay in the cottages. Guests who wish to have friends or relatives visit them during their stay, must obtain permission from us in advance.
  4. Check-in is between 2:00pm and 5:00 pm. Guests who intend to arrive outside these times, must inform us in advance. This is not normally a problem, but failure to do so will result in a late check-in fee of R200 being imposed.
  5. La Galinière is a working farm. As such, guests should be aware that there are machinery, tools, vehicles, chemicals and animals that put them and their families and friends at risk or in danger. La Galinière Guest Cottages, owners and staff will not be held liable for any damage to persons or their property. For insurance purposes, we require that all guests sign a disclaimer.
  6. Our cottages are not provided with safes. Guests are advised to take care of their valuables as we will not be held liable for any theft, loss or damage, howsoever caused.
  7. For security purposes, the farm has three German Shepherd dogs that roam freely. Please do not feed them or, under any circumstances, allow them to enter the cottages.
  8. Smoking is prohibited in all cottages. Guests wishing to smoke must do so outside and use the ashtrays provided. Guests found to have been smoking in the cottages will be asked to leave immediately.
  9. The accommodation does not have staff on call 24 hours a day. If any assistance is required, please either visit the main house or the farm office, or contact the owners or the cottage manager by telephone. Please only call the owners between the hours of 8pm and 8am in an emergency. Please call the numbers in the order shown below.

  1. Guests use the swimming pool at their own risk. Children must be supervised at all times by an adult over the age of 18. Towels provided in the cottage bathrooms must not be taken out of the cottages. Beach towels are available for guests wishing to use the swimming pool.
  2. Each cottage is provided with a chemical fire extinguisher. Please familiarize yourself with its location. In the case of fire, please use the extinguisher only if it is safe to do so. We should be immediately informed in the case of any fire.
  3. Braais are available for guests to use upon request. Please keep them a good distance away from the cottages, particularly open doors or windows. Only wood, charcoal and firelighters may be used.
  4. Guests should not disturb us or other guests with loud music or entertainment.
  5. All losses, breakages and damage caused to the cottages or their contents (furniture, equipment, etc.) must be paid for, whether such breakage or damage was as a result of an accident or caused deliberately. Guests will be charged replacement value for any broken, damaged or missing items.
  6. Objects left behind by guests will be kept for a period of three months. Should items not be reclaimed, then they will be disposed of. We are willing to return items to guests by mail, although postage costs will need to be paid in advance.
