This is the second time we have stayed at Thabile Lodge, the previous time was two years ago. We enjoyed our visit here so much last time we decided to return again and we were not disappointed. This is a lodge where the second you arrive you are made to genuinely feel most welcome and it is akin to staying... More

We had a great stay here booking one room for 2 adults and one child. Accommodation is clean and the rooms are small but well appointed. Len really makes this a worthwhile visit and he goes out of his way to assist where required.

After a few years of absence i had the pleasure to stay again with Len (the incomparable host at Thabile) about two weeks ago and experience the epitome of hospitality unlike anything else on this planet. the view from the recently perfected Veranda, the sunsets, just lounging by the bar/in Len's lounge and chat until the early morning hours. THANKS... More

Thabile Lodge is a very beautiful place, with a hand full of superbly furnished lodges and with a great outdoor dining and bar area and a beautiful garden. Len is so humorous and his great hospitability makes the stay to one if our best within our South Afrika trip. Thanks Len!!!

Len is a great host and went out of his way to please. If only one small criticism it would be to vary the menu a bit for people staying more than one night and have something basic for kids to eat. That said, I don't think they get a lot of kids or SA Citizen clients, mainly European guests.... More

Len, the owner and his staff are so professional and give great attention to detail. We received a personalised welcome note on our bed - how special is that! You also see definite progression! That makes a difference. It was again a very special experience. The food was exquisite! Our stay was worth every penny!! We will certainly return to... More

This was our first visit to South Africa and our travel agency choose top locations for us to stay in, but still Thabile Lodge is the one we have the fondest memories of. That was thanks to its wonderful location and great views of the surrounding countryside (the sunset from our veranda with the stunning views of a red mountain... More

A hiddenTreasure away from the hectic life. Wunderful place, great Location where you never expect. We unfortunately stayed only 2 nights and could'nt make use of the pool and jacuzzi.

We spent a very enjoyable night at Thabile Lodge – but wish we had booked two. The dinner was excellent and the communal tables meant we met interesting people and had a fun night. Len made us feel instantly at home, rooms are rustic but are well appointed and well positioned. Sunsets are to die for.

We visited this guest house for the first time last year. After a thoroughly wonderful 3 day visit we left vowing we'd be back soon and indeed we were, in late February of this year! First time round we had found the Guest House to be totally unique in its' location, accommodation and warmth of welcome. It had truly lived... More
