Perfect location in the middle of Tulbagh, pleasant room with excellent bed and shower/bathroom. Good breakfast and friendly staff. Possibility to have your lunch/dinnervin the Hotel, but nice alternatives within 5 minutes drive.

When you visit Tulbagh again, ask the receptionist at the Tulbagh Hotel that you want to sleep in their Self Catering Unit called Bains Barn in Church street. What a beautiful and comfortable historic building that not only gives you a big open plan kitchen, but also a sitting room, a spacious sleeping room and your own courtyard. See photos...

Dear Leon many thanks for our review. Bain's Barn like all our heritage rooms are part of Tulbagh's historic Church Street. 32 heritage properties in the one street, with the oldest church in South Africa at the head of the street. Hope to welcome you back soon Alasdair

What a charming Hotel ! The Tulbagh Hotel is quaint and beautifully decorated with old world style and charm. Its peaceful and welcoming and you feel very relaxed there. The rooms are beautifully decorated, with unique little decor touches for each room, very clean and supplied with everything you may need. The Fynbos Therapy toiletries are the best ever !...

Dear Barbara many thanks for your review. It is a beautiful time in the valley, with the first fruits ripening in the orchards. We incorporate as much local seasonal produce in our menu, featuring local cheese, eggs, honey, fruits, herbs and vegetables. Alasdair

Reviewed 25 October 2016

What a lovely hotel, the rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated with very comfortable beds. We stayed in both the Saronsberg Suite and in the Honeymoon suite and I have to say the rooms on the opposite side of the road (not in the main hotel) are a lot quieter and my favorite side. I do not have enough praise...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Tulbagh is centrally-located and conveniently placed to explore the town with its historic Church Street and many other attractions and amenities. The main hotel building dates from 1859 & offers a range of contemporary-styled luxurious rooms. The Winterhoek Manor(1813) and the Toll House(1809), opposite the hotel, are two of the heritage properties in Church Street, offering charming period rooms. Individual décor and fine cotton linen adorning four poster beds. Chandeliers on yellowwood beamed ceilings. Our Honeymoon Suite is the jewel in our crown. Crafted from the old wagon shed, this suite oozes romantic charm. Open thatch, two fireplaces, bath and shower for two. There are three pool areas, free Wi-Fi throughout and an in-house beauty therapist. All areas have air conditioning and there are cosy wood-burning fires for winter evenings. Tulbagh is just over an hours drive from Cape Town, nestled at the foot of the Witzenburg, Winterhoek and Obiqua Mountains in the heart of the Cape Winelands. ... more   less
