We stayed here for three nights at the end of April and couldn't have chosen a better place. The room was very comfortable with all the finishing touches and our hosts, Bill and Avril, were extremely helpful and always available with advise. Thank you very much!! Peter & Karen

Lovely , my only complaints/suggestions are I think they maybe need to get gas geysers or similar as we only had Luke warm showers and a tv would have been good. Great location and good views and the owner was friendly . She very kindly posted my wife's watch charger , to us

Hi Giles, Thank you for your review and suggestions - we have a heat exchange system for heating the water which is newly installed - we will adjust the temperature control to make sure that everyone has hot water in future. Kind Regards Averil

Raptor Rise in set in the most beautiful surroundings with magnificent mountain & farm views all around. It's immaculate inside and out and the owners and beautiful dogs are so welcoming. The rooms are newly decorated, fresh & comfortable and well equipped. We had a wonderful stay.

Beautiful property in a somewhat isolated spot in the midst of stunning mountains. Our rooms were self-catering, but the town is only a 10min drive, so we were able to stock up easily on basic food & drinking water. It's very peaceful and quiet, with very friendly owners, we thoroughly enjoyed our 2-night stay here.

We spent two nights at Raptor Rise and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It is a working farm with self catering units that are well equipped and comfortable. The view of the mountains is quite spectacular both for sunrise and sunset. The owners are friendly, knowledgeable and made a number of very helpful recommendations for our stay in Tulbagh.

Many thanks to Averil and Bill for a most comfortable, relaxing two nights accommodation. Although a bit small for a self catering unit, it was very well appointed with adequate facilities. Sundowners on the patio were made all the more enjoyable by a beautiful view of the surrounding mountains.

Our hosts ensured we were comfortable and well informed. Breakfasting al fresco as swallows swooped to and fro was a joy and the hosts' dogs gave us friendly and welcome company. Relaxing with a book by the pool with magnificent sunsets across dramatic mountains was the stuff of dreams! Highly recommended.
