“Quiet in the country”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 June 2014

It's not easy to find. Take the road due south from Oudtshoorn, rather than the roads from the west which we tried. We did not meet Eliza but Lollies made us very welcome. He cooked us an excellent dinner of ostrich steaks. Breakfast the next day with home made bread was delicious. The rooms are cosy and comfortable.

At arrival we felt so welcome. The country and warm homelike style of the rooms make you feel at home directly. We made use of the diner option. Diner was cooked to perfection and with passion. What directly was clear is the love with which the family is in this business..
Also breakfast, there is a choice for all !!! BAK GAT

Great boutique style accommodation with a look of `Shabby Chic` furniture and decoration. Very comfortable if small room but all you need for a short stay. In the evening Lollies cooked a great meal for us and his family, a starter of butternut squash soup, then Porticos, which was a delicious lamb stew served with corn, courgettes, butternut squash and an excellent bottle of Boplass Cabernet/Sauvignon wine. There was a dessert available but we were too full at this stage! The breakfast next morning was freshly cooked for us, and included Lollies home made sausage!

Room Tip: There are 5 rooms in a block and look out onto the garden. We had the one on the end number 6, which...

Thank you Lollies and Eliza on a most enjoyable weekend at your beautiful country guesthouse. Going the extra mile and bringing our car through to the finish of the 360ne MTB event was most appreciated as well as preparing the exceptional fish dinners specifically for our special requirements. Making special provision for us with the late booking on our second nights stay was also brilliant. All and all - wonderful hospitality - we'll be back!! Regards, Mike and Jeanine

Room Tip: Our rooms were lovely

Very friendly, easy going hosts. location seemed a little off the beaten track, quite a few minutes drive to the city of Oudtshoorn, but close to High Gate Austrich farm. Breakfast was good, but offered less variaty/choice than other breakfasts we had in South Africa. Also, our bed was a little small, but nothing that bothered us too much. We liked it and would recommend the Thylitshia to friends. Stayed for 1 night only.

We booked three rooms and were all next to each other. The rooms are nicely decorated if not a little too full of cushions, signs and kitsch items.
Unfortunately the beds are tiny and rock solid. It didn't make for a good night sleep combined with no way to turn off the porch light.
The owner was friendly and full of ideas for what to do in the area.
Overall it's a lovely quiet place but we didn't sleep to well because of the bed.

We really enjoyed our stay here which was very personable and hospitable. The owners really make a special effort and make you feel as if you are friends staying in their home. We would definitely come back.
