My wife and I stayed at Tantivvey a few years back and it was a very pleasant experience. With this in mind, we were looking forward to our stay in November 2016, only to discover that Ted and Alba are no longer the owners and that there are now new owners. The whole atmosphere is totally different. The young man...

We spent almost three weeks at Tantivvey and it was great. Each day we would go out to town and couldn't wait to get back to the cool, rural atmosphere. We really recommend this guest house with the wonderful breakfasts and friendly cook! Can't wait to come back.

It's so wonderful to stay somewhere where you feel right at home and completely welcome. Ted is an incredible host and cooks up the best B&B breakfast we have ever had. After planning to stay one night, we decided to make it two. Absolutely pleasurable stay and we will be back.

We stayed at Tantivvey from the 18th to the 23rd February. This was our third visit for my wife and I but this time we took six friends - everyone loved their time there. While it will never be 5* all singing and all dancing it is really beautifully situated in a rural position under the Outeniqua mountains. The best...

We stay at Tantivvey when we travelled to George for a friend's wedding. The venue is rural, on the outskirts of George and the rooms are cozy and charming. The grounds feel expansive, with magnificent views of the hills. We were immediately put at ease by the enthusiastic welcome of Tarentel, shortly followed by Ted, brimming with friendly anecdotes. Come...

Very friendly hosts, quaint, comfortable and well equipped rooms, as well as a view from your room that is worth a lot more. The scenery alone gets 5 stars. Excellent breakfast too. Highly recommended for comfortable and affordable accomodation.
