we stayed for one night in this hotel in tulbagh, very nice, neat, affordable and a good breakfast. they made a mistake with our original booking, and made up for it by giving us an extra bedroom, and half price! they made an unhappy customer an extremely happy customer, very good business practice! i will recommend this establishment to anyone.

“First ask to see the rooms and then make your choice..make sure there is a hairdryer, soap, shampoo, towels, a decent shower/ bath etc before making your choice..and ask for a quiet room if you have no children..the floors are wooden in the passage so you will hear kids running etc if you just want to have a good nights rest.”
