What a professional and lovely little hotel! All of us rolled in in our cycling outfits, some a little tired. A peacock walked down the street as we enjoyed a beer at the terrace. Each and one of us were greated in particular and followed to our rooms. I asked them to help me with arranging for an apéritif for my group that night and so they did, right on time and with no restrictions. Dinner at Olive Terrace was a delight, I must say: This was the best hotel-experience we had on our road trip with Oliven Reiser. I wholeheartedly recommend this hotel, and we will be back in February and in November. Thank you!

Dear Nintin we were delighted to welcome another group of cyclists from Norway, and are very pleased that the group has booked to return in February and November 2014. Tulbagh is establishing itself as a destination for cyclists both on and off road. There are sections of the Cape Epic route which are available for visitors to use throughout the year, and the hotel has bikes for rent. Thanks also for your kind comments regarding the restaurant and the staff. Safe travels. Alasdair

Even though the hotel is right in the middle of town, our room was quiet and very comfortable, with a great range of mini bar wines.
The staff were very friendly and gave great suggestions as to what to do in the area.
Fantastic anniversary getaway.

What a wonderful experience we had at the Tulbagh Hotel. Heidi was wonderful with the initial reservations & Danelle & Liane were efficient & friendly once we arrived at the hotel. Tulbagh Hotel is situated in the heart of the town, so we parked on Friday afternoon and did not use our car until Saturday evening. Everything is accessible on foot and the staff at the hotel were happy to assist us with things to see & do around the town.
The dinner on Friday night was really scrumptious. I would highly recommend the springbok carpaccio & the lamb burger. Wesley was very pleasant, attentive & knowledgeable.
Breakfast was ample served with both strawberry jam & a marmalade, so all tastes are catered for. Wilmarie & Simone made breakfast a real treat by ensuring that the first coffee/tea is served piping hot & quickly.

We stayed in the Rijk Tulbagh room which is across the street from the main hotel. It was wonderful & quiet & the room was glorious, with a king size bed. The bathroom has both a shower and massive bath fit for two people.

We had such a wonderful time that we are wondering how soon we can return to Tulbagh.

Hi
It was very nice to meet you both and have the chance to chat. Very pleased that you enjoyed a relaxing break with us in Tulbagh. A very special thank you for the donation of pet food for our local group of volunteers who ensure all pets in Tulbagh are taken care of and found new homes when necessary. Thanks for mentioning the staff by name, it's much appreciated by all. Hope to welcome you back soon.

Delightful little place in the Golden Valley - but we did not stay here only had a very nice evening dinner. Will recommend this English Style dining room with good food and responsive waitress to visitors in the area.

Many thanks for calling by for dinner. Our new spring menu is now available, and features smoked snoek pate, local salmon trout salad, yellowtail fishcakes, game fillet, homemade ice cream with local fruits and nuts and my favourite coconut pannacotta. Hope you will come and stay with us next time you visit.

Many thanks for your review. Pleased to hear you ventured out with the mountain bikes. As the town sits on the floor of the valley there are some very easy rides out to the vineyards. And for the more adventurous you can follow in the tracks of the Cape Epic with some routes through orchards and along side the majestic mountains.

We stayed for two nights in the Disa Room.
The room was amazing - the most comfortable king size bed, awesome shower and bathroom....all pure luxury.
The service was fantastic and the food was excellent.

We will definitely be back soon.

The hotel is rated as four star.....but we think it could easily have a five star rating!!

Dear Jen
Thanks for your very complementary review. The staff were delighted to hear that we approach 5 star standards! The Disa room which you stayed in is our standard level room. We will have to try and tempt you with the Saronsberg suite on a return visit!
