Within seconds of us arriving Len and Ma made us feel at home. We stayed for two nights and throughly enjoyed the Thabile lodge hospitality. Dinner is a communal affair, where all the guests eat together and as Len says, drink grappe until you all speak the same language! The ostrich fillet is not to be missed. Basil is the... More

Except for the fact its a rather more classy and sassy little establishment (and therefore the last thing you would therefore expect given where it is) Thabile Lodge was a home from home for me, made so by Len's helpfulness and wicked sense of humour together with his team's good spirits. The food was exceptional and dinner was the highlight... More

The whole experience of our visit was fantastic. The rooms were clean and set out brilliantly. We met Len and thoroughly enjoyed his company. Great sense of humour. All the staff were so lovely and friendly. The food was of the highest quality. Congratulations Len and hope we can meet again and enjoy your great establishment. Ian &Janice Phipps (uk)

Len and his team do everything possible to make you welcome to Thabile Lodge. We arrived just before the sun set over the beautiful mountains in the distance and were settled into the comfortable accommodation very quickly. Dinner was delicious and the wine one of the best we enjoyed in South Africa (so up against stiff competition). We left an... More

Len and "Mr. Cookie", his fabulous cook, are warm and welcoming hosts who make you feel immediately at home. Len has been upgrading his lodge in a remarkable way offering now almost every night a fantastic three course dinner at only R 250. A newly built dining room overlooking the garden adds to the perfect feeling including new surrounding lights... More

It's hard to add much to all the very positive reviews of this place. Len is an extraordinarily good host and he is backed by a very good team, especially Henne the chef who produced some great meals. The rooms are simple but comfortable and all have great mountain views. The overall value is brilliant especially the 20% discount for... More

It is situated about 20 km from Oudtshoorn, near Dysseldorp. Very quiet, nice pool and garden. You will feel at home immediately. We definitely will be... More

Thabile Lodge is in a tranquil location with fantastic mountain views, and the facilities are excellent. Len leads his team in providing friendly, attentive service with a lovely informal touch. The three course dinner in the evenings is superb. Definitely worth a return visit.

We spent one night at Thabile and had a wonderful time. Len and his team and make you part of the Thabile family in a very nice way.
