Must say one of the best places i have stayed in in a long time. The owners are friendly, and always prepared to help with any request. They have good knowledge about the town and surroundings, they help you get the most out of your weekend by suggesting places to see and handing you a map of the area. Very...

Our first impression wasn't very good. Being greeted by Bill he didn't make me feel welcomed. We booked the weekend in celebration of my daughters first birthday. I didn't appreciate being told I must keep my kids quiet because we on the second floor. And the booking was for one baby and a child, he was quick to mention an...

We spent two nights at Raptor Rise recently - four adults and two young children (ages 7 and 5). It was our first visit to the area. The location is lovely - well appointed and comfortable. The surrounding scenery is stunning - all 360 degrees of it. The town of Tulbagh and the surrounding area is rustic and interesting. A...

Lovely , my only complaints/suggestions are I think they maybe need to get gas geysers or similar as we only had Luke warm showers and a tv would have been good. Great location and good views and the owner was friendly . She very kindly posted my wife's watch charger , to us

Raptor Rise in set in the most beautiful surroundings with magnificent mountain & farm views all around. It's immaculate inside and out and the owners and beautiful dogs are so welcoming. The rooms are newly decorated, fresh & comfortable and well equipped. We had a wonderful stay.

Beautiful property in a somewhat isolated spot in the midst of stunning mountains. Our rooms were self-catering, but the town is only a 10min drive, so we were able to stock up easily on basic food & drinking water. It's very peaceful and quiet, with very friendly owners, we thoroughly enjoyed our 2-night stay here.
