Of all the places we stayed at on our South Africa trip the Villa Tarentaal was the only disappointment. The cottage was large and comfortable, however, it all needs a bit of a spruce up. Breakfast is served at the cottage which is nice, however, don't ask for anything special, like Earl Grey tea. Graham is helpful with information concerning... More

My family and I stayed over Christmas for a few days this year and were immediately taken aback at how nice everything was with Villa Tarentaal. The amenities were spot on, the location was superb. But the real stand out for us was the care and time Graham (the owner) took to make sure our visit was perfect. I cannot... More

We arrived after a long flight and were immediately able to relax. The Villa is run by Graham and Brandi (who we didn't see) but Graham made us very welcome and our room Peacock Suite) overlooked the pool. Every room has their own area in the garden or on the terrace for breakfast which was absolutely delicious. You certainly won't... More

The cottage was the perfect place to relax and enjoy the breathtaking views of South Africa. If you stay up late I recommend to take a look at the stars, it is absolutely stunning. Graham and Brandi my experience so memorable. I will be back very soon.

Delightful cottage with stunning views of the mountains and a fabulous garden. Graham and his staff could not be more friendly and helpful. The recommendations for sightseeing and dinner were excellent as were the fantastic breakfasts. Even though we were mostly just relaxing the time flew by and we wished we had been able to stay longer. We would certainly... More

We stayed at Villa Tarentaal in Tulbagh for three nights over the December summer festive period, having researched and read about its #1status in speciality lodging in the town. We therefore had great expectations of a pleasant and satisfying stay. We were not disappointed. There is a uniqueness about this lodging in a number of respects: to start off with... More

As we drove down the lovely driveway to Villa Tarentaal with grand trees and flowers on each side, we knew that this B & B was going to be wonderful, but we didn't know yet how great our stay was going to be. We were greated by the owner on our arrival and he led us to our cozy room.... More

Villa Tarentaal is the place to stay in Tulbagh - almost perfect, but (we get back to the "but"). Some details: Peacock room You have access to safe, European power plugs, hairdryer, TV (didn't test), quiet fridge with mini bar, iron+iron board and plenty of space. The covered balcony is big and has a spectacular view. The bathroom is outstanding... More

We did not have a reservation and contacted Graham last minute in panic, he gracefully accommodated us where no other Guesthouse made the effort to assist in Tulbagh and Ceres. Upon arrival he personally came outside to greet us and made our stay the best we have had to date! We stayed in the Honeymoon suite and experienced 2 days... More

The room was modern but with old fashioned touches all around. Beautiful furniture, all the amenities. The food was delicious and ample and the owners choose the best spot for every room to enjoy a spectacuar view of the mountains from each breakfast table. Best of all, the owner Graham is warm and helpful continually but never intrusive. We are... More
