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

We stayed at the Lodge for two nights and enjoyed every minute of it. Len is a great host and has created a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere at this beautiful place. Both dinner and breakfast were delicious and the bar was very well stocked. The only thing we regret is not being able to stay longer.

Thabile never fails to impress - a wonderful host in Lenny Bornman, very comfortable accommodation and great food in a relaxed and peaceful Karoo setting. With the town of Oudtshoorn, the village of Prince Albert, the magnificent Swartberg Pass and Meiringspoort all within shouting distance it has to be one of the best stop-overs in this part of the country.

Excellent food, warmest hospitality, beautiful room and great view - this place has it all and more.. It was one of the warmest welcome we got anywhere ( including a personal letter from the host) and one of the places we enjoyed most. We spent there 2 nights and were sad to leave.

What a suprise on arriving at Thabile Lodge. We can highly recommend to all local South African travellers, holiday makers to make use of Thabile Lodge in Dysselsdorp. Len and "Ma" will only offer the best attention to detail and service. Thabile Lodge is also central to visiting, Oudtshoorn, Meiringspoort, Prince Albert, Swartberg Pass and even George.

This place is a gift from heaven. Beautiful scenery to be enjoyed in serenity. Accomodation is very nice with personal touches. The possibility for meals in a family atmosphere saves driving 20 km at night. The chef makes a Michelin star dinner. ( Breakfast is equally excellent ). Staff is dedicated to help and give you a happy time. They... More

We stayed one night here as it was booked out for the second night we would have liked. Accommodation is in chalets in the grounds. They are more functional than luxurious but there is a large bedroom with en-suite shower room and a veranda where you can sit out and look at the view of the mountains. Rooms have aircon... More

Stayed two nights. Fantastic location. Met with friendliness and courtesy. Godd advise on what to do locally. Dinner very goood but menu could become repetitive over a number of days (alternatives were available on request). Overall, happy with our stay and happy to recommend.

Great place to stay as a relaxing retreat. You are welcomed by Len, the owner, and his 4 lovely dogs! What a super guy and his staff were great. We only stayed for one night and wished it was more. An evening meal is available on request and it was great, good food, good company (we shared a table with... More
