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

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

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.
