We have stopped here many times en route to Jhb and it's always superb. Friendly welcome, we stayed in the Blue Cottage this time and it was as good as the Red one. The food was excellent, for dinner was pulled Karoo lamb with sides of delicious roast potatoes and salad. The cooked breakfast also great. Thank you Lexi we'll be back - again.
We stayed in the stable cottages, perfect for a family of four, with dinner (delicious chicken pies) waiting in our fridge. Well positioned between Joburg and Caoe Town, the rooms are comfortable and we enjoyed our stopover.
Kuilfontein Stable Cottage brings you to a farm south of Colesberg. The Stable cottages are named after the race horses which were bred here in the past and are furnished in a tasteful English style. The farm is situated at a short distance away from the N1 Highway just enough distance not to be bothered by traffic sounds at all. The wide open spaces are impressive. The place is ideal if one would want to overnight on a trip between JHB and CT but not exclusively for that reason. Drinks are around the bar area and outside it, and dinner is home cooked style. Service is friendly and efficient. If travelling with a pet I would recommend being clear about that fact as there was some misunderstanding around this. I can warmly recommend this place which is more a home away from home than an impersonal hotel. I would definitely return. …
This is our 5th stay at KSC and it is as always expected - excellent. The staff are friendly helpful and well trained. The accommodation is superior and comfortable. Nothing is too much trouble.The dinner is good simple fare but well prepared and presented accompanied by a a very representative South African wine selection. Lexi and Grant are attentive and informative hosts whilst Penny is now MIA? Enjoy your travels Penny you deserve it and we do miss you but your family are doing a great job of keeping the standard flying! We will be back!
The trip back to Joburg after a holiday in the Cape is not something I look forward to. Kuilfontein Stable Cottages changed that. Its a veritable oasis of comfort and refreshment in that harsh and often boring environment. Tastefully decorated and charming and delicious food makes it something to look forward to and set you up for the final stretch home.
