We have just spent a most enjoyable night at this B&B. We took advantage of their 'winter special' of R690 for two for dinner, bed and breakfast. We were given the Honeymoon Suite which was extremely well appointed and spacious. The dinner and breakfast were first class - the best ostrich steaks we have ever eaten. Can definitely recommend Thylitshia.

Thylitshia is such a lovely, cosy getaway that went way beyond our expectations. We were looking for a quiet, restful weekend away from our daily routines, and we got all that and more from our lovely, jovial hosts, Lollies and his wife Elriza. What a charming couple! The accomodation was superb for the winter chill with electric blankets and heaters in our rooms. The decor in each room and the reception/lounge area was stunning. Our 5 course dinner was truly sumptious after a long day of visiting the local attractions in Oudtshoorn. Our hosts were so friendly and the choice of wine received from our host was superb with our meal. Thank you again to the staff and hosts of this beautiful establishment for making our weekend getaway truly a fantastic "country" experience. :-) Clarisa Vandayar.

I booked this B&B on the internet from the UK with the promise of a warm welcome, good food and South African charm. That promise was kept and the hosts did not disappoint at all! The B&B is just outside of Oudtshoorn on a beautiful, peaceful road with ostriches opposite. The rooms were spacious, homely and warm with electric blankets to help send us off to sleep later. We chose to have dinner - such a wise choice as we were served the most delicious ostrich steak after our visit to the cango caves! Lollie and Elriza could not do enough for us, so hospitable and kind. It was one of our friend's birthdays the day we arrived and she was treated to a surprise drink, candles, banner etc at dinner which was truly special and memorable. Breakfast was superb with home made croissants! We would all highly recommend this B&B and we will definitely stay again if we journey along Route 62 or are visiting the Oudtshoorn area!

Room Tip: The rooms are in the garden and the 2 we had were both superb, even in the winter. Lovely extra lit...

My wife and I stayed here for one night of our honeymoon whilst touring the Garden Route in June 2012 - we've never been so well looked after and made to, literally, feel at home. We enjoyed a five course meal, which was top class, and were invited to join our host for an after dinner port in front of their fireplace. Breakfast was delicious and we went on our way feeling well rested after a good nights sleep in a very comfortable room - I will definitely go back if not for anything but honest and good hospitality. We even left with a delicious bottle of Boplaas champagne, compliments of the owners, in honour of our marriage.
Thank you Lollies and Elriza for a wonderful and friendly stay :)

During a recent business trip to the beautiful Klein Karoo, a friend recommended that Thylitshia Villa Country Guest House will definately feel like home! I was not disappointed!
The rooms are comfortable, spacious and tastefully furnished. With an electric blanket on the bed and TV in the room there were no need or excuse not to relax and rest.
Elriza's food was well prepared and delicious, especially the ostrich steak! (No need for take aways from town to eat late at night in your room!)
Gerrit (Lollie) made me feel very comfortable and it was as if we know each other for years.
The garden is well look after and they do pay attention to every detail to make an oasis with views of the majestic Swartberg mountains to complete the picture.
I do recommend this guesthouse to every tourist for you will be treated as a VIP!
Thank you Lollie & Elriza for a much pleasant stay! Hope to see you soon again.

We recently required a halfway stop between East London and Cape Town off the beaten track. Fortuitously we stumbled upon this great B&B on the internet.

On arrival we were made to feel welcome immediately. We enjoyed a walk in the picturesque surroundings before a sumptuous dinner, which was preceded by a very welcome glass of Sherry.
Accommodation was comfortable and warm, and the water was hot! (A winter necessity)
A hearty breakfast set us on our way the following morning.

Overall, we had a very comfortable stay and enjoyed the hospitality from the new owners.

Highly recommended!
