“A wonderful weekend in Tulbagh”
Reviewed 16 September 2013

Thank you Graham and Brandi,
We loved our stay in the Peacock Suite. It was everything it promised to be and more . . .
I now understand the rave breakfast reviews you get. Your croissant speciality is out of this world. We'll have to come back just for that.
Great room, great food and great hospitality.
Thanks again,
Brenda and Len

Lovely cottage we stayed in. And a beautiful setting too. Super friendly and efficient service from Graham, the owner with real attention to little details. Scrumptious breakfasts enjoyed by all of us. Highly recommended.

This was our second time back to Villa Tarentaal, this time staying in one of their new suites. Villa Tarentaal is an absolute MUST when staying in the Tulbagh area. The rooms are beautiful and the bed linen / towels etc are just of immaculate condition. This is the exact kind of accommodation you expect when wanting a weekend away. They have set the standard very high due to the rooms being so lovely as well as all the staff being exceptional! Breakfast is divine !

Room Tip: Swallow suite as well as Egyptian goose cottage are both wonderful to stay in ! Egyptian goose has s...

We had a beautiful stay at Villa Tarentaal. Graham looked after us as if it were our own home. Everything was perfect.. The breakfasts are incredible, so far as to say the best I have ever experienced, even as a seasoned world traveller for an American Corporate.
Stunning views and service. Highly, highly recommended!

What a great place to stay! Graham you run a slick operation my friend. Thank you so much for all your attention and focus on the details. You really helped me make my 5th wedding anniversary a special one. From the super helpful and easy booking process, the amazing cheese platter, the flowers for my wife, the dinner reservations, to the awesome breakfasts! Thank you. We will definitely be back. Please extend our thanks also to your friendly staff.

Room Tip: We stayed in Egyptian Goose cottage which has nice private veranda and braai area.

We experienced a warm welcome and a very relaxing stay at Villa Tarentaal. Attention to detail, discrete servicing of the suite and wonderful breakfasts each morning. The fireplace was prepared each evening for a relaxing, warm setting. Your choice of breakfast served to you in your suite, at your chosen time, each morning. What more could be asked for? A very positive, relaxing weekend away in Tulbagh.
