Verified reviewexcellent

Staying over on a journey from Cape Town to Jozi was always a pain because of the stop over halfway. This is no longer the case. This was our first stay at Kuilfontein and what a nice surprise. Our family room was spacious and well fitted out. We had a friendly pre-dinner drink in the cosy pub, met some new people and then had a delicious dinner in the charming dining room. It is owner run and Lexi and her staff are great. It's one of those places where you feel that nothing is too much trouble. Breakfast was fresh and delicious, with milk that came straight out of a cow, on the morning you drink it. I highly recommend Kuilfontein and we will definately be back.

My daughter and I stayed at Kuilfontein Stable Cottages on our way from Durban to Cape Town. We loved the fact that it is part of a working farm. We had the most beautiful sunset and we took wonderful photos. We were warmly welcomed by Penny and later joined by Lexi and her family. Before dinner we had drinks in the cozy little pub and met all the other visitors, which immediately made us all feel very relaxed. Dinner was excellent and then to our rooms, which were well fitted out and comfortable. A great place to stop over and we have already booked for December.
