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.

My husband, I and 2 friends found this a very welcoming place for an overnight stay. After a long car journey it was wonderful to be able to stretch our legs by enjoying a long late afternoon walk around the farm, making the acquaintance of the cows and horses followed by Jingles the tame squirrel and sundowners in the courtyard....

This was our third stay over and as per usual the dinner was delicious, the room (stables) was cosy and comfortable and Penny is always a wonderful host. This is always one of our higlights when roadtripping.

This is our 3rd and 4th visit to this charming overnight accommodation - right outside Colesberg. We stayed at The Paddocks - Kuilfontein self-catering section - and was, once again, treated extremely well. We were welcomed by Evelyn, the always friendly and super efficient manager. We stayed at The Last Fling - accommodation for 2 people. The other units are... More

We absolutely LOVED the night we spent there, and could easily have stayed more nights. I would have loved to spend more time taking photos of the landscapes around there. The kids saw a brand new lamb which was amazing to see. The food was spectacular… I had the lamb curry for supper which was amazing, and the boys enjoyed... More
