I stayed at Padddabult with family and would definitely recommend it. a wonderful warm and friendly welcome. Excellent value and with everything you could want. The little touches like tea, coffee and fresh milk, were appreciated. My son enjoyed the open space around the cottages and the visit from the dogs. Wrap around "stoep" with two big patio doors from...

Thank you for the beautiful review. It's much appreciated. You're absolutely right...the patio doors create a much bigger space and there's nothing better than having a cup of complimentary coffee or tea outside on the stoep in the morning. Glad your son enjoyed the space and the dogs... Hope to see you again!

Would've like an extra separate bathroom or toilet, cupboards was dusty. Otherwise was a very quaint cottage and the location was excellent. Views where stunning and was very peaceful. We enjoyed the visits to the surrounding farms and having a relaxing braai on the stoep at night.

Thank you for your review Belinda. Being on a farm dust is always a bit of an issue but we do try our best (under circumstances) to keep everything up to standard. Our apologies for overlooking the dust in your cupboard. We apologize for any inconvenience.

These self catering cottages are clean and very well priced. We were attending a wedding at Babylonstoren and we were perfectly located. There were a group of us and it was perfect for our needs. The kitchen is fully stocked so we brought food and cooked our own breakfast. There is Aircon and a daily cleaning service. Check in was...

We stayed here for our first 3 nights of a 3 week road trip from CT to the South Coast. It was around 45 minutes to Cape Town Waterfront and well placed to visit Paarl and Stellenbosh, and not far from Fariview Goat, Wine and Cheese farm. The unit was cosy, but there was enough space for 4 adults and...

Hello JonMKP, Thank you for your kind review and pointing out a couple of things to us. I agree with you that we can lit up the braai area a bit more. Being on the farm there isn't much light. We will most def. look into this matter! Unfortunately everybody have different needs when it comes to the kitchen... which...

Everything was perfect. Just the worm problem - is there nothing that can be sprayed to prevent them? Although I am sure you have tried every option that you can. The cottage was clean and had everything that we needed. The place is so peaceful and tranquil. The staff were extremely accommodating and helped wherever they could.

Thank you for your review. We have tried everything on the market for the millipedes. There's a certain time of year that they show up and it's usually after a little bit of rain. Unfortunately there is nothing we can do. We generally get rid of them during the day, but as soon as the sun sets and it gets...

We were very happy with our stay at the Paddabult Cottage. The 2 rooms share a bathroom and toilet so you need to know the persons well that you share with. Very convenient as we visited the Paarl area the one day and the Franshoek area the next day.
