Decent place to stay, friendly, fresh bedding, you will not get mugged but oh my goodness, I have never never seen so many cobwebs. That room has not seen a spring clean in years! My hair drier caused a cobweb tsunami as they were blasted out of crevices. This establishment is in need of a clean broom in more than... More

We had thought of booking at the Old Herberge but were put off by the very variable reviews on Trip Advisor. So we stayed at the Tulbagh Country Inn (which wins the prize, against heavy competition, for the slowest breakfast in the Cape. But we did take the chance to visit the Old Herberge, and Sherlock Holmes- like, to find... More

Hi Caroline I was absolutely amazed to read your review and although I don't think it warrants a reply,I feel there are a few aspects that I will respond to; 1) I don't think your bad experience at Tulbagh Country Inn (no such place in Tulbagh,either the Witzenberg Country Inn or Tulbagh Country Hotel) has anything to do with this...

We booked for three nights but extremely disappointed by the hotel and the restaurant - left after two nights. What I found amazing was the management did not even ask why! When we arrived we certainly were not made welcome - this is your room! There was no detail of amenities, breakfast, etc. We were in the Ruby bedroom. It... More

We stayed at this beautiful hestoric guest house for two nights and what a relaxing and friendly place to have stayed at. The beauty definitely comes from all corners of this guest house as the chef came and greated us personally when we wanted to thank him for a lovely dinner even though the restaurant was busy.

An interesting looking and welcoming place let down by some of its amenities. The shower was difficult to operate with a choice of very hot water or cold. The rooms were spacious but needed better maintenance. The restaurant for dinner served poor to average food.

My fiance and I had a meal at the restaurant, but did not stay over. The old Cape Holland style exterior is very authentic and well kept and the interior is well decorated, giving you the feel of years of old. Our biggest disappointments were the food and menu. I ordered the lamb cutlets and my fiance the "bacon and... More

Very sadly we were terribly disappointed on our stay.. We booked for two night but only stayed for one. It seems very very neglected and the staff do try their best.

Although you are advised to book, the restaurant had only another couple in for the whole evening. The waitress and young chef were clearly not pleased to be working that night. It appears that the owner may have been away. The first table we were shown to was inside near to the kitchen and it was far too hot and... More
