This is the second time we have stayed at Thabile Lodge, the previous time was two years ago. We enjoyed our visit here so much last time we decided to return again and we were not disappointed.

We had a great stay here booking one room for 2 adults and one child. Accommodation is clean and the rooms are small but well appointed. Len really makes this a worthwhile visit and he goes out of his way to assist where required.

Len is a great host and went out of his way to please. If only one small criticism it would be to vary the menu a bit for people staying more than one night and have something basic for kids to eat. That said, I don't think they get a lot of kids or SA Citizen clients, mainly European guests....

Len, the owner and his staff are so professional and give great attention to detail. We received a personalised welcome note on our bed - how special is that! You also see definite progression! That makes a difference. It was again a very special experience. The food was exquisite! Our stay was worth every penny!! We will certainly return to...

This was our first visit to South Africa and our travel agency choose top locations for us to stay in, but still Thabile Lodge is the one we have the fondest memories of.

We spent a very enjoyable night at Thabile Lodge – but wish we had booked two. The dinner was excellent and the communal tables meant we met interesting people and had a fun night. Len made us feel instantly at home, rooms are rustic but are well appointed and well positioned. Sunsets are to die for.

We visited this guest house for the first time last year. After a thoroughly wonderful 3 day visit we left vowing we'd be back soon and indeed we were, in late February of this year! First time round we had found the Guest House to be totally unique in its' location, accommodation and warmth of welcome. It had truly lived...
