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 !!!...

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...

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...

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...

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...

We arrived a Thylitshia in the afternoon and were greeted by Sara, who showed us to our room and offered a glass of wine. The room was spacious and the bathroom even more so, we could have held a party in it. We also had a terrace with table and chairs .The decor and fitting in both were delightful and...

Stayed for 2 nights and we were made very welcome by Lollies when we arrived. He recommended a restaurant in Oudtshoorn which was very good, the town is a fair distance from Thylitshia though. The rooms are nice but have a lot of bits and bobs in them. The second night we ate at Thylitshia and the ostrich was excellent...

We’ve stayed there for 3 nights and it was the best place we’ve stayed at during our 1 month honeymoon! (we got there by mistake and were supposed to stay just 1 night, it was so good that we stayed for 2 more nights!) From the moment we got there it felt like home. We felt very comfortable and welcome....
