Upon my arrival I was welcomed in a warm manner, as if I were a long-lost friend. The atmosphere was full of tranquillity and nature was invited into every aspect of the amenities. My room was beautifully prepared, complete with a personalised welcome letter. Meals were presented with the same warm welcome as when I stepped into the deck area,... More

Everything that others have said about Thabile Lodge is correct, lovely rooms, delicious food and a marvellous host. Spent two very enjoyable days here. Amazing to have wifi (free) in the rooms in the middle of nowhere, if Len can do it here then nobody else has any excuse! Sadly though the world famous cat, Garfield, died at the vet's... More

The only negative aspect was that we could only spend one night. Two nights should be the minimum. The rooms (half of a house) are tastefully decorate, the view onto the mountains fantastic, Food (breakfast as well as dinner) delicious and the pool and garden are worth spending a couple of hours.

Staying at Thabile Lodge was a fun experience with Len who is a great host. What he has created is an oasis in the Karoo, great for relaxing by the pool but also getting out to explore this beautiful area. The cuisine is of good quality too, with both dinner and breakfast a chance to mix with other guests and... More

It is hard to find the right words to describe this place and its owners Len and Roy, but probably the most exact description is that of their website: A place of happiness! Unfortunately we only stayed one night at the Thabile Lodge, and I wish we could have stayed longer, so we are definitely coming back. The place is... More

Staying at Thabile Lodge is a great pleasure. Thabile Lodge is such a nice place to be, very beautiful, peaceful, quiet and surrounded by mountains. The accomodation is very clean and has a beautiful view. Len was for sure the best host we met on our entire tour. He is very friendly, helpful, and tells the funniest stories ever. If... More

"Simply the best" And I'm not citating Tina Turner but talking about the best facility we experienced during a roundtrip of more than 3 weeks throughout SA from Johannesburg to Cape-Town. The manager/owner Len welcomes you as a family member, you will feel homy from the first minute on until leaving. Relax and tell your story with a welcome drink... More

I have frequented Thabile Lodge many times in the past years and it has been one of my favorites on the Garden Route…. Len (owner) and Hennie (cook) and the whole staff will make you feel at home. Good food by Hennie, personal time and attention from Len and a wonderful setting on a “plaas” (farm) right next to the... More

We had a great experience at Thabile Lodge, easily accessible, lovely clean, comfortable rooms and beautiful surroundings. Len and his staff were extremely hospitable and went out of their way to arrange an early breakfast for us…thanks so much!
