On our way back to Cape Town from George we spent one afternoon and one night at Thylitshia and could not have been any happier with the choice of our accommodation. Lollies and his family were very warm and welcoming and made our stay very comfortable and delightful. The locaton is just beautiful: amazing views, beautiful garden and every room...

They truly have great pride in their property. Arriving to their destination was a bit challenging though, however, the owners have already addressed this issue and were...

We stopped over at Thylitshia on our honeymoon. We needed a stopover in the Oudtshoorn area and I can't even remember why we chose Thylitshia, but we did. We were so pleasantly surprised that we were sad to have to continue with our journey the next day. The accommodation was very comfortable, the bathroom spacious, clean and well appointed. The...

Drove from Hermanus to Oudtshoorn and checked into this lovely English vintage style guesthouse! Each room was beautifully decorated and had tasteful detailing. The dining room was lovely too - we had yummy freshly made breakfast. The owners were so warm and friendly. Super close to the Highgate ostrich farm. A must stay - Home away from home!

After driving through arid, almost desert-like scenery, we arrived in Oudsthoorn. We drove through the town, passing the numerous ostrich farm,s and were despairing at what sort of hotel we were heading for in the middle of nowhere! We needn't have worried, Thylitshia Villa is a jewel in the desert. Beautiful grounds, green lawns, stunning gardens, beautiful pool, and rooms...

Very warm welcome at this beautiful guest house. Tastefully decorated 'vintage' style rooms. Opted for the meal in the evening, would highly recommend the ostrich steaks. A visit to the nearby Highgate Ostrich farm is worth a visit. Would definitely stay again.

Yet again another wonderful experience staying at Thylitshia. Nothing is ever too much trouble for the owners to make your stay truly amazing. From dinning on amazing food in the most beautifully decorated dinning room, sitting on the stoep after dinner, drinking coffee on your own little patio. Just to relax and surround yourself in the mountains and tranquility.Knowing you...

I am an avid mountain Biker and I have stayed at Thylitshia on 3 occasions for MTB races. Nothing is too much trouble for owner Lollies and his family and staff, from preparing pre race breakfast for 5am or helping with cleaning dirty equipment, to name two of many examples. I've never encountered such friendly and enthusiastic service anywhere. The...
