I always stop off en-route from Johannesburg to Knysna as it is too far for me to drive the whole way in one day. I usually stay in Springfontein but decided to try somewhere else this time. I chose the Kuilfontein Stable Cottages as it had received good reviews although it did add 20km to my journey. Well I was... More

Needing some space after a traumatic family event we travelled up from Cape Town to Johannesburg. Kuilfontein stable cottages provided just this. A stylish, warm and cozy overnight was spent with incredible food and attention to detail. all round just a splendid place run by super people. Certainly the best on the N1 between Cape Town and Johannesburg

Arrived in the dark so missed the entrance -no clear signs from the south. Rushed into dinner but a wonderful 3 course winter meal, friendly service in, presumably, a converted stable....felt a bit "tight" in dining area. Room was cosy with all necessary facilities. Breakfast was tasty and buffet style --which would suit everyone,quantity wise. Enjoyed walking around the working... More

Hi there, Thank you for the comments. There are two luxury rooms which are in the converted foaling boxes which are bigger than the normal stable rooms. Kind regards Penny Southey More

We got a warm welcome from Patricia and were soon sitting on the patio outside our cottage enjoying the setting sun with a cup of tea and delicious banana bread. The accommodation is nicely decorated, clean and pleasant with coffee and tea making facilities and as it was rather chilly we were pleased to see the heater was on and... More

We stopped for one night on the way to the Eastern Cape. We booked a luxury double room. It was tastefully furnished and, once we managed to find the extra blanket, we were comfortable and warm during a mid-winter Karoo night. The location is about a kilometre from the N1 freeway, in a pleasant farm environment, so the road noise... More

We selected this overnight spot by pure chance through the internet having previously been very disappointed by poor accommodation in Colesberg town itself. It was absolutely perfect with comfortable, well appointed rooms and a cosy bar and dining room. I would never stay anywhere else when travelling to Capetown.

This was our stop over on a road trip to Cape Town, my daughter who is horse crazy loved the idea of sleeping in converted stables. July is very cold in Colesburg but our room which was a family room that accommodated all 5 of us was so warm and quaint. The bathroom in the family room is tiny but... More

It's 1/2-way between Joburg or Durban, and Cape Town. So a perfect location for a one or two night stand. You'll stay in beautiful little cottages named for (I think) the owner's horses. You're way out in the country and fortunately you'll be served a delicious dinner and the usual hearty breakfast. Horses everywhere. And because it's a family business,... More

Greeted by the smiling Patricia and warm Karoo afternoon sun! A beautiful place to revive your senses and enjoy true farm hospitality. Rooms were wonderfully comfortable and surprisingly warm on a clear cold Karoo night - dinner was delicious and the wine selection a pleasant surprise. Enjoyed with my family and good friends!

Stayed at Kuilfontein as a half way stop en route to Joburg. Would definitely recommend them. Staff was super friendly and helpfull (especially Patricia), rooms were 5 star, so comforting to arrive in a heated room on a very cold Karoo night. Dinner was well prepared in a cosy dining room as was the breakfast - cekebrating all the lovely... More
