I have visited and revisited Villa Tarentaal in excess of 8 times over the past 3 years. Sometimes it's for a romantic getaway, sometimes a family break and I've even gone there for a solitary sabbatical! Each and every time the service and amenities have been perfect! I can highly recommend VT to all - without a shadow of a... More

Wanting to experience something new, we decided to visit Tulbagh in stead of the usual suspects in and around Cape Town to celebrate my in-law's 40th wedding anniversary. What a fabulous venue in a beautiful setting. Our rooms were tastefully decorated, and did not want for anything. Kudos to Graham and his team for making us feel like royalty and... More

We stayed in the Peacock Suite. Beautifully decorated room with modern fittings. Very romantic with a fireplace next to the bed and a beautiful pool, garden, and view outside your front door. The private breakfast with a view really rounded off the experience, and Graham's french toast croissants are amazing. Would definitely go back.

Not wanting to drive to far out of Cape Town, Tulbagh was the choice for our break away weekend. No request was to big or small for the fantastic team lead by Graham Hunter of Villa Tarentaal. Our room (Peacock Suite) was amazing and the extra care given to our stay has made it a destination which we will most... More

It was very tranquil and relaxing. The room (Swallow Room) was very smart and nicely decorated and very comfortable. The location was just about right. Far enough out of town to be away from everything, but close enough not to be isolated. Will visit soon again!

Hi there. We recently spent two nights at VT. What a great experience. Beautiful scenery, great hosts and luxurious accommodation. What more could you ask for? The food and service is also first class. We came away feeling refreshed and batteries fully recharged. We can't wait to return. Andrew and Hilary

Never have I experienced such great service, fantastic hospitality and friendly staff. From the moment we booked to the moment we left, we felt welcome. The units are super clean, nicely decorated and their attention to detail was outstanding. The breakfast was an absolute winner! And the views are gorgeous! My two sisters and I will never forget our girls... More

Hi there. Just a quick word to say that Kate and I thoroughly enjoyed our weekend in August. The room is decadent with the double shower and fireplace. The full body massage was professional and left us feeling great. We were lucky enough to get sunny weather so we could have our cheese platter on the lawn while watching the... More
