Exceptional stopover from Cape Town. Very neat place and evening braai on the Patio beats a place in a restaurant. The service is exceptional. The lady who helps, receives you well and makes you feel at home.

Definitely worth a stop over, great food, wonderful people! Choose the blue or red luxury room for that little extra cost. Very comfortable stay, beautiful percale lines, heaters in room for those cold nights and a great shower in the morning with ameneties on hand, including fluffy towels! The dinners are a real treat, with the owners calling us on... More

After two disasterous stop overs in Springfontein (never go there!) we are delighted to have found this true home from home in the Karoo! It is exactly half way from Durban, to Cape Town and as everyone has mentioned ticks all the boxes. Well done Penny, Lexie and your incredible staff. I just wish all foreigners had this opportunity of... More

We have been telling everyone we know about Kuilfontein. This is the highlight of a trip through the Karoo. We had a beautifully romantic dinner before retiring to our cosy and comfortable de luxe room. Breakfast was perfect. Would love to return to this special place....

We knew the accommodation would be quirky as soon as we reached the entrance of the farm as a sign warned us: "DEAD SLOW! FREE RANGE PEOPLE" The cottages that house the guests are converted stables, supposedly each with the name of its erstwhile horsey resident above the door; like "What Won It" and "Fearless Streaker". The room was lovely,... More

12km south of Colesberg, this is an ideal stopover en-route from Cape Town to JHB. Quiet Karoo surrounding the cottages - could have spent some more down-time there, just to relax. Wonderful home-cooked lamb meal.

Kuilfontein Stable Cottages are situated 12 km south of Colesberg within easy reaching distance from the N1. The reception was friendly and the rooms and dinning room showed a lot of attention to detail. The lamb shanks for dinner were excellent. The wine list comprised a visit to the wine bin where you could choose from the bottles. A good... More

We had the pleasure of staying at this Karoo oasis for only one night but could have stayed longer if time permitted. We were welcomed by Patricia who is a delightful person performing all sorts of functions - reception, bar lady, waitress in the delightful dining room and other activities - very well trained by the Southey family. The dinner... More

Once again we had a very comfortable night preceded by a delicious farm cooked dinner. My daughter and I were en route to Cape Town so this accommodation is ideally placed, close to the N1 but without the noise. Very comfortable rooms and lovely breakfast with the Southey family. Can't wait to stay again.
