Thylitshia is a welcoming guesthouse with lots of attention to detail. The meals (specifically the ostrich fillet) were excellent and the rooms comfortable. The owners focus on making the stay there as enjoyable as possible.

Friendly service by Lollies and Elriza. Grounds are lovely and the rooms are cosy with good character. Breakfast was excellent, as was the dinner prepared by Lollies and Elriza (I had ostrich for the first time and it was pretty good!). Only two negatives- bed was small (everywhere we stayed before and after had big king size beds whereas I...

We spent one night passing through on this amazingly beautiful estate! We were welcomed by Lollies and felt right at home! The room is very charmingly decorated and provides for all the luxuries one can wish for. Take the time to relax in the garden after enjoying the delicious breakfast... This place is definitely a recommendation for anyone seeking peace...

Thylitshia is a lovely place to stay while exploring the interesting town and surrounding area. There are only a small number of rooms, each with a very pleasant sitting area looking out over the lawns and small swimming pool, towards the distant mountains. The rooms are well appointed and more spacious than they might first appear, as they go back...

We were greeted by a sign on the door telling us which room we were in - the owner was playing golf at the time. The room was OK but not quite what I was expecting. The professional photos make the hotel look much better than what's there in reality. And the pool is absolutely tiny. The sun loungers looked...

Touring from Cape Town, along the Garden Route then upto JoBurg with a couple of stops on the way. This stop was just what we wanted, quite secluded but central from lots.

If you want to be greeted by flower petals on your bed, this is the place for you. Proprietor Llolis rolls out the red carpet and then some for guests at this cozy inn.

We didn't stay at Thylitshia but we joined our friends who were staying there, and loved it, for a superb dinner and drinks.
