The architecture of the many forts of Frontier Country and towers of Grahamstown inspired the main structures of Yellow Piano Inn at the farm Burg Lengeling. Using contemporary materials concrete and bottle art became a consistent feature. The cottages are each furnished in different themes: romantic or chaste, 'afrokitsch' or colonial. Some of them have en suite bathrooms with showers, TV and tea & coffee facilities, the big bath house is just across the lawn. Self-catering facilities are in the communal kitchen.
