“What an awesome weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

What an amazing weekend away we had as guests of Lollies and Elriza. I doubt that you will find such hospitality anywhere else. From the minute we arrived untill we left we were spoiled. The rooms are beuatifully romantic and luxurious. Elriza is a great cook and we were served in style. Such hospitality you not going to find anywhere else. It was hubby's birthday and the surprised us with a birthday banner at breakfast and a gift for him. Lollies you have a great sense of humour!

Was really a awesome and valuable experience that we had as a young couple and the host and his family made us feel like we were regular visitors. In reviews everyone just write anything to get it over and done with but with this place it is really something that one has to experience on your own. I would recommend this place first hand to any stranger, friend or family member and will definitely return to it soon!!!! ps: ostrich steak there is a must have!!!!

Room Tip: 1st and 2nd rooms were great especially 2nd room bathroom for a couple

This Guest House was taken over in March 2012 by new owners and the place sparkles inside and out. The hosts could not have gone out of their way more, bringing a beer or two to our rooms' outside table, the hosts do all the work themselves and the wife prepares the meals, bakes the bread, outstanding meals. The gardens are so pretty and the lambs out the back way precious. I would recommend this accommodation without pause.

We cannot recommend Thylitshia Villla Country Guesthous highly enoughl. A wonderful warm welcome, nothing was too much trouble, First class delicious food - cooked by Elriza and served by Lollie in very stylish dining room with chandelairs. Chalets well equipped. Unexpected extras were a welcome drink served in their lounge with blazing fire on arrival and, on leaving, a lovely cleanly washed car. We will not hesitate to recommend them and hope to stay again.

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.
