We were very fortunate that somebody told us about Kuilfontein Stable Cottages, a few kilometres outside Colesberg. Our party of three stayed at The Paddocks. Formerly mare stables, it was converted into self-catering units, individually named after the horses in 2011. The units consist of two en-suite rooms, one with a bath and the other one with a shower. Six... More

A second visit, and we were greeted like old friends. Comfortable accommodation and excellent food are part of the package. What really lifts it it the way one is welcomed. A pre-dinner drink in the small pub has everyone present chatting. More like an evening with friends than a overnight stop.

Such a lovely place to stay on your way to or from the coast to JHB. Warm and friendly atmosphere. Rooms are beautifully decorated in country style. Food is honest home cooking. Wine and beers readily available. The family pets all very cute. Would happily recommend and go back. B*2

Being 12km outside Colesberg means that Kuilfontein is ideally positioned to break the long journey by car from Johannesburg to the Cape coastal regions into manageable legs. A very warm welcome and friendly service was received from all involved. The stable rooms are small but comfortable and beautifully furnished. A relaxed late afternoon was spent walking around the farm before... More

Many things I like about Kuilfontein, its on a farm just a short distance from the N1 and almost midway between Cape Town and Johannesburg. The thing however I enjoy most is being treated like an invited guest and not as a customer. Rooms are converted stables, with nice comfortable beds and a big shower. You are invited to meet... More

After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor we chose to stay over on this delightful farm both south and north bound on our holiday. We were received a warm welcome from Patricia who settled us into our room - the blue room the red room on our return. Both both these rooms are charming with many thoughtful touches to make one's...

My daughter and I stayed at Kuilfontein Stable Cottages on our way from Durban to Cape Town. We loved the fact that it is part of a working farm. We had the most beautiful sunset and we took wonderful photos. We were warmly welcomed by Penny and later joined by Lexi and her family. Before dinner we had drinks in... More

Staying over on a journey from Cape Town to Jozi was always a pain because of the stop over halfway. This is no longer the case. This was our first stay at Kuilfontein and what a nice surprise. Our family room was spacious and well fitted out. We had a friendly pre-dinner drink in the cosy pub, met some new... More

We have stayed over at the Stables many many times and still cannot wait to come back on our next trip to Plett! I love the way you are greeted by name and Penny never forgets who you are. We book the room with the kingsize bed, Wotwonit, and the one next to it with 2 single beds for our... More
