This was my first visit to Porterville. We really very pleased with the accommodation which live up to its promise. We have no hesitation in recommending The Stable.
What a fantastic experience!
Hosts Dean and Phillip have brought a touch of magic to Porterville with their beautifully appointed The Stable B&B.
Top class finishes, large, excellently decorated and furnished rooms, air conditioning, jacuzzi, they have spared no effort or expense to make your stay an experience to remember.
Thanks so very much, we felt pampered and cared for.
5 star elegance in the heart of the Swartland!!
Porterville is one of, if not the last small-towns (i.e., dorpies) proximate to scenic beauty with which only the Western Cape in beautiful South Africa is blessed. It is a gem of a destination, just a few minutes drive from accessible natural beauty in a climatic zone that compares nicely with Palm Springs in the USA. Add to mountains, vineyards, waterfalls, Beaverlac and thermals, the amazing food and natural products, Porterville is a place poised for ever-expanding tourism. Last, but not least, the personal care and attention of Phillip and Dean, your hosts, in most comfortable accommodations, steeped in character at The Stable -- and at their outdoor pool and lounge area -- leave one with a profound degree of healing. Two large, comfortable bedrooms with queen-sized beds and views onto the mountains, private outdoor patio with braai facilities, modern kitchen and living room with well-appointed furnishings, welcome each guest. Be as surprised as I was and make a point to visit The Stable for a memorable break from any city. Being a 1.5-hour drive north of Cape Town on fine roads, the place is accessible and well worth the scenic trip and a several-day stay. I look forward to returning to The Stable to again be hosted and feted by Phillip and Dean!
Wonderful venue, beautifully appointed, a real gem with fabulous hosts. Definitely worth a return visit
Perfect quiet country experience. Majestic view of mountains. Locals are friendly. Great walks. Owners, Phil and Dean are great hosts. Enjoy!!
