Tulbagh Country Guest House is our guesthouse and the jewel in The Cape Dutch Quarters’ crown. Established in 1999, the guesthouse can accommodate up to twelve people in five en-suite bedrooms and suites. The guesthouse is situated in a 200-year-old manor house that was built in 1809 and retains all of its original features.
The guesthouse manor is a classic ‘H-shaped’ house, the epitome of grand Cape Dutch living, and has been beautifully restored to its former glory, and is situated on Tulbagh’s historic Church Street. The owners of the guesthouse have taken great care to retain the authentic atmosphere of this lovely home with its yellow-wood floors, ceilings and grand rooms, as well as the antiques and art that are on display throughout the guesthouse and in all the rooms.
The Tulbagh Country Guest House offers three king-sized luxury en-suite rooms, as well as a Family Suite that sleeps four people in two rooms, with an en-suite bathroom. Also available at the guesthouse is a single suite with en-suite shower and toilet. All mattresses in the guesthouse are of the highest quality and our linen is 100% cotton percale. Most of the guesthouse’s rooms have private doors onto the garden and pool and guests are encouraged to make free use of all guesthouse facilities including the covered terrace braai / barbecue area.
Our beautiful neo-classically inspired swimming pool is a life saver after a hot summer’s day. The pool lapa/covered pool terrace seats 12 comfortably and features large day beds, relaxing sofas and thick padded upholstery. Equipped with a book and a glass of wine, it’s tempting to spend the entire day there. The braai/BBQ is beautifully built out of local stone and may be used freely by guests.
Beautiful gardens lead through to shady courtyard spaces and calm sitting areas. Inspired by a dry river bed, our back garden is planted with Buchu, Restio and other indigenous plants. The garden is a haven for birds and attracts over 15 species, including the Cape Hummingbird and Cape Robin.
Enjoy our sunny roof terrace, providing spectacular 360° views of the valley over the thatch roofs of Tulbagh and the mountains and valleys beyond.
Our accommodation offers free Wi-Fi and full office facilities (laptop, fax, copy, scan, phone), all available for our guests and business travellers.
We felt like royalty, thank you!
Great to be here for our 5th visit to the guesthouse!
