It's hard to add much to all the very positive reviews of this place. Len is an extraordinarily good host and he is backed by a very good team, especially Henne the chef who produced some great meals. The rooms are simple but comfortable and all have great mountain views. The overall value is brilliant especially the 20% discount for... More

The best lodge is te best in the region of Oudtshoorn. The owner, Len, reads every wish from your lips. He has a very nice sense of humor. His breakfasts and diners are fantastic. It is situated about 20 km from Oudtshoorn, near Dysseldorp. Very quiet, nice pool and garden. You will feel at home immediately. We definitely will be... More

Thabile Lodge is in a tranquil location with fantastic mountain views, and the facilities are excellent. Len leads his team in providing friendly, attentive service with a lovely informal touch. The three course dinner in the evenings is superb. Definitely worth a return visit.

We spent one night at Thabile and had a wonderful time. Len and his team and make you part of the Thabile family in a very nice way. Garden, veranda, main house and guest houses have been individually designed. Len and his team served us an excellent dinner on the veranda & we enjoyed the mountain view. Definitely the right...

It has been an amazing stay. We were welcomed very warmly. Tha main house is where the owner lives, breakfast and dinner is served. We were very hungry when we got there in the afternoon because we only had breakfast, the owner took care of it right away and we were served a very delicious sandwich, although usually no meals...

We spent three nights at Thabile Lodge in Aug 2015 and loved every minute of it. Len and his team were fully dedicated to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. Between the four of us, including our two boys, we had two adjoining double rooms. Those were spacious, very clean and nicely decorated. Breakfast was delicious, consisting... More

We had a lovely stay here. 2kms down an unpaved road, this is a hidden gem where you are warmly greeted by the owner and his dogs. Two double rooms to a cabin with striking views of mountains - very comfortable with powerful showers. Attractive main house where you can arrange for an evening meal - delicious - and watch...

We – a family including children - stayed at Thabile Lodge in February 2015 for 2 nights. While I would not consider Thabile Lodge being particularly family focused, Len and his team (including the dogs) were very accommodating with our children. In general, I concur with earlier positive reviews. The booking process was easy, quick and efficient. Len is an... More
