We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Hotel. All the staff were extremely helpful and accommodating, and we had a lovely room. The Hotel is perfectly positioned in the town centre, and everything is within easy walking distance. We would stay there again.

A beautiful little get away, stunning scenery and perfect little spots to stop at in the area. The staff are friendly and welcoming, with amazing service. The food was excellent, exceptional quality. If all of that wasn't good enough the rooms are beautifully decorated and cosy. A perfect trip all round and worth the visit.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Tulbagh is centrally-located and conveniently placed to explore the town with its historic Church Street and many other attractions and amenities. The main hotel building dates from 1859 & offers a range of contemporary-styled luxurious rooms. The Winterhoek Manor(1813) and the Toll House(1809), opposite the hotel, are two of the heritage properties in Church Street, offering charming period rooms. Individual décor and fine cotton linen adorning four poster beds. Chandeliers on yellowwood beamed ceilings. Our Honeymoon Suite is the jewel in our crown. Crafted from the old wagon shed, this suite oozes romantic charm. Open thatch, two fireplaces, bath and shower for two. There are three pool areas, free Wi-Fi throughout and an in-house beauty therapist. All areas have air conditioning and there are cosy wood-burning fires for winter evenings. Tulbagh is just over an hours drive from Cape Town, nestled at the foot of the Witzenburg, Winterhoek and Obiqua Mountains in the heart of the Cape Winelands. ... more   less
