From our arrival until our departure - what an experience. The rooms are lovely and have everything that you need. The breakfast was amazing and a gift bag of Banana bread for the trip home was wonderful. The guest house is situated so that you can walk into town and enjoy the local cuisine and entertainment. Looking forward to going back again soon.

No TV in Rooms, communal lounge with just a couple of lousy chanels, communal lounge does not work form me. No desk in rooms to do work on. No dinner capability so have to travel out of guest house at night for this. Rooms are cold in winter and noise comes from the main road during the night from truck and car traffic. Wooden floors make a lot of noise with every step, overall poor sound insulation in the rooms. One almost feels like you are living in a room in somebody's house.

African Tulip Guesthouse is a luxuray home away from home made all the better with scrumptious breakfasts. It is ideally located for many of the activities available on the wine route. This was my second stay at African Tulip and I foresee many more. The hosts are simply the best!

We had such a lovely stay at this beautiful, quiet and well-equipped guest house. We were greeted personally by the owners and made to feel very welcome. The room we stayed in was spacious and clean, and the bed very comfortable. The guesthouse is set on a lovely property with on-site, secure parking, a garden, pool and communal braai (BBQ) area. The breakfasts in the morning, made by Elise herself, were delicious! Thank you so much to the wonderful hosts, we had a fantastic stay and hope to be back for another visit.

Lovely room fully equipped and we were very well looked after. Restaurant for first night had been booked for us as requested by our email so no searching for dinner. Pool is lovely and overall layout of gardens is very relaxing. No TV in room but in lounge next door - we enjoyed the tranquility and the views of the surrounding mountains.
