    Beautiful homestead close to a very interesting ostrich show farm
    • Leisure trip
    • Family with young children
    • Double Room with Shower
    • Stayed 2 nights

    Restaurants are in town and therefore a 10 km drive away. While it is completely in the countryside, the road leading past the property is still fairly "busy" so you don't get the immaculate peace-and-quiet you may expect this far from town. I tried to record the beautiful birdsong in the evening and in the morning but to no avail - a car would pass every minute or so and you'd hear it from far away already. This is a personal gripe - most people are used to much more noise and I wouldn't call it "noisy" - it just wasn't as completely peaceful as I had anticipated.

    Lollies, the host, was fantastically friendly and helpful. We had dinner at the property one night and tried Lollies signature Ostrich Steaks and his home-made gravy which were supreme. I'd return just for that meal! A definite must-do! The location is 10 km from Oudtshoorn but only 2 km or so down the road from the Highgate Ostrich Farm, so the location is great if you want to be a little outside of the town. The rooms are beautifully appointed with a lot of attention to detail with very fitting and consistent decoration, the green garden is a treat, the pool a nice extra.

    We stayed in several B&Bs in the western cape during our vacation and this one was quite pricey.

    The owners were incredibly helpful in booking us last minute on a meerkat tour. We are still so grateful for that. Generally this place is very nice and quiet with a great breakfast. The rooms were very comfortable.

    A wider selection of teas would have been nice (e.g. Earl Grey & Green tea), and maybe the breakfast could have included a few extras - pastries or cold cheese and meat, although what was served was plenty, and always came with very friendly staff.

    A nice quiet location, lovely garden with pool, a row of chalets in the garden provide guest rooms. It is well run, with a lovely dining room and offers a very good evening meal. - try the ostrich steak. The owners are very helpful and directed me to the local pharmacy to buy marvellous flu medicine for my sick husband, plus allowed him to rest in the room well after booking out time while I went to visit the nearby ostrich farm.

    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 a long way. They are very comfortable, with armchairs and spacious bathrooms. They have aircon and good free wifi. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful - very knowledgeable about the local area in which there are lots of interesting things to explore such as the dramatic and unmissable Cango Caves. The property is about 15 minutes drive from Oudtshoorn, a very pleasant small town with a fascinating history and a good selection of supermarkets and restaurants. At Thylitsia they do not provide an evening meal every day, but if it is available, go for it! Lollies cooked us an excellent ostrich steak in his own (closely guarded) recipe, and the butternut squah soup starter was likewise excellent - and also made to an old family recipe. A great meal, served with an excellent wine from the owner's stock. We really enjoyed our stay with the family (and cats and lovely dog!)

    Firstly we were very surprised to see that Thylitshia is right on the road without anything to afford the guests any privacy. The garden and the pool are located to the front of the property with absolutely nothing to prevent the lorries from looking in. It may not be a main road, but it is a tarmac road and several noisy lorries and tractors went by during our time there. This was not evident from any of the photos or comments promoting this property beforehand & would have definitely affected our booking. Many of the rooms were in a terrace block, looking out over the garden & road and the room we were given had a door to an adjoining room (a door which we didn't notice until after the owner had left us). This door had quite a large crack in it, through which you could actually see light from the neighbouring room. This room was soon to be occupied and we could quite literally hear everything, so we asked to be moved. We were then given the last remaining room around to the side of the house which was smaller and not ideal but it was thankfully much quieter. Unfortunately this room was not without problems. There was an electrical extension cable running out from under the bed to the fridge, which we covered with a rug to prevent tripping over it in the night. Several of the floor tiles in the bathroom had large cracks which were noticeable under foot. It was very warm in the room, but unfortunately the air conditioning unit was faulty. It would work perfectly for about 20 minutes and then would emit a loud squeal until it was turned it off. This was manageable during the evening but when we went to bed we had to switch it off completely to be able to sleep. We did open the windows but then mosquitoes forced us to close then again, although at least one remained looking at the bites in the morning.

    Maurice was kind and sympathetic but this did not make our stay any more comfortable and unfortunately we will not be returning.

    The property does not have an a la carte restaurant as advertised. One choice of starter and one choice of desert. Main course a choice of meat, fish or poultry all served with exactly the same veg. Food not good and very poor value for price.

    The room was good, clean and spacious and obvious care taken with decor.

    Not a lot really - but would have been nice to have met more than just the owner. Pool nice but not as inviting when you get close up.

    The owner was very friendly and the rooms very comfortable. Highly recommended for a stopover and good value

    The wine and food was ridiculously priced and guests should always ask the prices as there is no price list and surprise the following day when you get the bill.

    Interior design and decoration was not really our style and made me a little uncomfortable (that is personal opinion of course).

    Great views and garden! Nice room and large bathroom! Breakfast is ok. Dinner was nice and prepared with personal touch. However, we did not know (we're not aware of) the price. Compared to local restaurants @ Garden route a little overpriced. Staff was nice!

    Slightly hard to find in the middle of the night, however host was helpful and prepared to collect us and show the way from near by.

    What a wonderful Guesthouse hidden away a few minutes drive outside Outshoorn. The host was incredibly accommodating and hospitable. Breakfast included was delicious. Host also provided us with great tourist information that we enjoyed thoroughly.

    In comparison to the other 4 star guesthouses we visited during our holiday this guesthouse was over priced. The dinner was well prepared but for that price we expected more than steamed frozen vegetables and a dash of mash. We had to be satisfied with tap water where at the other guesthouses we received bottled water both at the dinner table and in our rooms. There was also no price list for the wines or drinks. Definitely not value for money. The bathrooms were freezing cold.

    The gardens and we loved the cosy dining room and the character of the house.
