What a wonderful place to visit. The peace and tranquillity that one experiences at Villa Tarentaal is a must for all. The valley and surrounding mountains are simply beautiful. Service is excellent!! The attention to detail is out of this world. Staff are friendly, rooms are 5 star. Graham is never a step to far away to make sure all... More

I have very high standards when I stay outside my home. I have to say that Villa Tarentaal exceeded my expectations. The service, cleanliness and 4 star room made our honeymoon a pleasurable experience although far too short. I would come back again just for the breakfast and comfy beds. Also the attention to detail such as fresh coffee for... More

We stayed in the 'honeymoon suite' which is a light airy and sp[spacious bedroom and a huge bathroom with double basins and double shower. Breakfast is served on your personal terrace (not in a communal breakfast room like most guest houses).overlooking the pool and gardens. Service was excellent and Graham and his staff are most attentive and helpful. This room... More

I you want to spend one or a couple of nights in Tulbagh we would definately recommend Villa Tarentaal. Graham is a great host, cooks the best omelets in the world and offers spacious luxury corrages. We spend the night in the honeymoon suite, it was a highlight during our stay in the Western Cape.

Great stay, but too short, not much I can add to other comments, its all good.Thank you very much to our hosts and their staff for their attention. We will definitely return on our next trip and promise to book earlier, to ensure a longer stay.

Once again we had a great time at Villa Tarentaal. Every aspect of our stay was first class and Graham, Brandi and all the staff know how to make a visit special. We thoroughly enjoyed our first braii with good company to boot! Look forward to our next visit. Thank you Graham and Brandi!

We would loved to have stayed longer at Villa Tarentaal, but I'm afraid it was already booked. We enjoyed it there very much and would recommend it. The breakfast they bought to you in the morning, was superb, made more special because it was set out for you outside your cottage. If we travel to South Africa again, we will... More

Set in a beautiful location, the peace and scenery really take some beating. We stayed in the Peacock suite, large, comfortable and well appointed. Graham and the team make you feel very welcome and those little touches make all the difference. Would we return, yes we would.

Villa Tarentaal is one of those rare gems you find on your travels - in the lovely valley of Tulbagh. The Peacock Suite is a lovely big and comfortable room (with huge bathroom, shower & aircon) leading straight out onto a patio and the swimming pool. Perfect after a long trip or site seeing. Breakfast (with a view!!) is outstanding... More

One of the bed B&Bs I've stayed in. We stayed in the Swallow Suite. The room was lovely and modern with the biggest shower I've ever seen (but if you want a room with a view the Peacock Suite is perfect). The breakfasts were absolutely delicious, with stunning views to accompany them. The hosts were very friendly and welcoming.
