Easy to find accommodation, not far from the main road, but far enough to feel like you're on holiday and won't hear the traffic. Spacious rooms. Clean. Hosts very friendly and happy to help with any advise RE dinner recommendations etc.

Our time was very pleasant, the hosts are exceptional along with everything else. The bagpipes entertainment was an unexpected pleasure. The room was very comfortable and the dining room delightful. Great breakfast. No problems or complaints at all.

We stayed in Tulbagh a week earlier at a much more expensive venue but this guesthouse far exceeded that venue. Better room, great breakfast, great hostess and massive swimming pool- just a few minutes walk from Church Street. Will definitely stay again when visiting Tulbagh

Always a pleasure to stay at African Tulip. Elise and Frank are excellent hosts, ever helpful and welcoming. The rooms are very comfortable and well appointed. The garden and pool area is especially relaxing. Elise is also able to organise transport to the nearby wineries in the Tulbagh Valley. Another thoroughly enjoyable stay.

We stayed here for 2 nights with friends while visiting Tulbagh. We were made very welcome by our hosts, who gave us a lot of useful information about the area. The rooms were very comfortable and spacious. We made good use of the pool and loungers, both much appreciated at the end of a day’s sightseeing.
