We enjoyed the warm hospitality and superb evening meal. The rooms were very well equipped and had comfortable beds. Our breakfast was most enjoyable and we were reluctant to leave! The main lodge, which is so beautifully decorated, had a very welcoming atmosphere, and Willem made us feel really at home!

When we arrived we were greeted by Willem who gave us a tour of the property. We enjoyed using the small gym (crosstrainers and rowing machine) and then we settled into the warm jacuzzi. This was great to unwind after a day in the car driving up from Cape Town. The rooms are rustic but meet my two main criteria...a... More

I did a lot of researching around this area and found Thabile Lodge. We only stayed for one night, but had a very enjoyable stay. You can sit at the fully stocked bar and meet other guests. The resident dogs like to meet the guests as well. Dinner consisted of 3 courses, seating around a wood fire and my compliments... More

I stayed at Thabile Lodge during a recent trip to South Africa. The B&B has a wonderful atmosphere, located just outside (20 min drive) Oudtshoorn gives it a rural feel. The accommodation is suitably rustic and fits well with the overall experience. The service at Thabile was second to none. Len is a charming host and has plenty of helpful... More

Thabile Lodge is just outside Outdshoorn - easy to find, in a beautifully setting. There are a number - 6? - of semi-detached cottages, set well apart and with a view over the nearby mountains: a special treat in the early mornings and at sunset when the colours on the rocks near the top of the mountain. Len, his mother... More

Photos on the website do not do Thabile Lodge justice--this was truly a lovely place in an unexpected location, with stunning art work on display throughout. The views of the Swartberg Mts were fabulous, almost matching the hospitality of our hosts during our three night stay--Len, Willem, and Sabine. We were made to feel like family and shared much laughter... More

We stayed here two nights and really enjoyed it. The rustic cabins are very comfortable and set facing beautiful mountain views. The main lodge is elegant and the service is outstanding. The pool area is lovely and the grounds beautifully landscaped. Breakfast is included and dinners are optional but we highly recommend dining here. We would definitely stay here again... More

We stayed here for only one night but wished it was much longer. The lodge is beautiful and Len and Willem were very friendly and attentive hosts. The food was outstanding - and a much better option than having to drive into Oudtshoorn to find somewhere. We will definitely be back - but for longer next time!
