We stayed at Thabile Lodge for only 1 night whilst passing through from the Knysna Oyster festival but wish we had the time to stay longer. We are a family of 4, with 2 young boys (aged 2 and 4) and the room was a perfect size for us. Our 4 year old had his own single bed whilst the... More

Len is a great host, and as it was winter, there were fewer guests but all the ones we met in the pub prior to dinners were repeat, that talks by itself. We had all our dinners there, thank you Hennie for great food all along,... More

I think Len makes Thabile Lodge such a success. He is really entertaining, sees to your comforts, thinks on his feet, lavishes luxuries on you and has turned this old farm into the little spot of paradise it is today. Food is VERY nice and locally sourced, the grounds and the accommodation are stylish and best of all is the... More

We were 13 couples and it was our 2nd stay and Len lived up to his reputation. We will definitely stay here again it was fantastic. The homely atmosphere and comfortable lounge makes it difficult to leave. The food was excellent and well presented. All in all a wonderful experience and highly recommended.

What a lovely experience! We arrived unexpectedly, were made to feel so welcome and treated to wonderful meals and entertaining conversations. Large, comfortable, tastefully finished rooms with modern air conditioning/heating units, bar fridge, etc. - all spotlessly clean and well maintained. Charming main lodge for meals overlooking sparkling pool - indoor jacuzzi and small gym a bonus. The evening sunsets... More

We stayed at Thabile lodge for 5 nights in April 2014 and we had a marvelous time there! The rooms are OK, nothing special really and a bit on the small side for a family of four (but we knew that, the owner even warned us about it). I imagine the rooms are perfect in size for couples. The view... More

Warm welcome, True Karoo hospitality, for down to earth people who are connected to mother Earth. The host is very friendly, helpful and down to earth, beautiful old farmstead with a contemporary twist and modern amenities. Don't expect 5 star city hotel but a 5 star country holiday experience.

My family stayed at Thabile Lodge for two nights in March and had a wonderful stay. The rooms are very comfortable, all with beautiful views of the hills. We had great food both nights and excellent breakfasts. The lodge has a very warm and friendly atmosphere and our 7 year old son loved playing with the very friendly dogs and... More
