We didn't stay at Thylitshia but we joined our friends who were staying there, and loved it, for a superb dinner and drinks. Lollies is an amazingly friendly and welcoming host and the food was wonderful, homely and traditional but definitely of restaurant quality. Special mention must go to Lollies wife, who sadly we didn't get to thank personally, for...

We had stay for an overnight at this lovely place. Everything was just great: Dinner and breakfast were delicious (although vegeteration options can be improved for dinner), clean room , super comfortable bed, great staff, and wonderful hospitality by Lollies. By the way, in case visiting around, don't miss the swartberg pass on the way between Oudtshoorn and Prince Albert...

We had a great stay and a very warm welcome from Lollies and the crew. Lollies is incredibly helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Dinner was excellent, ostrich with a very nice bottle of wine. The rooms were very clean.

Very clean place, owner (Lollies) is on top of things! We arrived after 18:00 so no more drinks and no more food as staff went home. We drove back into the city to have our needs covered. The rooms are very spacious and bathroom is very clean. Pool was too cold to try in the winter and the location is...

My colleague and I spent 2 nights at the guesthouse on a business trip. Garden was beautiful and well kept. The owners were very friendly and inviting. The rooms were well kept and I have never slept in a bed so comfortable at a resort before. The touch of sherry was wonderful to battle the cold. Highly recommend the guesthouse.
