This hotel was our first stop in South Africa after almost 24 hours travel and we were told we would get a room upgrade and a bottle of sparkling wine for our honeymoon but got nothing. It wouldn't have been a problem if the lady at the desk hadn't promised... Anyway, the service was wasn't so good, the room a... More

We stayed at The New Tulbagh Hotel In May, The new rooms given to us is great. The Hotel has went through many changes and my opinion is that they have made it. Still value for money, big comfortable rooms, great breakfast and friendly staff. The best part is that I forgot my camera there without knowing, the day after... More

We stayed at Tulbagh twice during our South African tour but the second visit was quite shocking. Staff (except for the restaurant staff) was not at all helpful. There was no hot water in the rooms and they just kept on saying that somebody is correcting the problem. The most shocking thing was that money was stolen from our room.... More

I booked this hotel fairly last minute after strongly considering just backpacking at a hostel. When I saw how cheap the rooms were here, I couldn't justify not shelling out a little more cash for a private room. I admit, I was quite skeptical of the hotel because the rates were so low...but the reviews on Trip Advisor were good,... More

We stayed here for three nights on the Capetown extension of an OAT safari. It was awful. First the towels were stained, the bedding was yellowed, the shower flooded the bath when you turned it on, the shower tile was so slippery I almost fell as did my husband, the toilet was literally behind the door, the lighting was awful,...

Great friendly staff but the rooms are tired and in need of a makeover. I was in 106 which faces the square and every morning at 5am a shop across the way opens and street vendors load their trolleys with no appreciation for those still sleeping. Breakfast was ok but nothing special. I would rather pay more for another place.... More

Good Price but a Little noisy. I usually use this hotel during the year but the last night was not so good and also the internet connection was not so good . I think that in the rooms in the top level (4th) the coverage of the WIFI is not so good.

The New Tulbagh is down near the conference centre, but is within a 10 - 15 minute walk of Company Gardens, Waterfront, and Long Street. As the hotel is in the business district the area looks a bit deserted, but perfectly safe, and easy to get to anywhere in Cape Town. The rooms seem a little tired but they have... More

We spent a week at this hotel for our family Xmas holiday. We booked 3 bedrooms in advance and we requested 2 cots and a supplementary bed for 2 of the bedroom we booked given that we had kids with us.
