A very pleasant stay-over en-route the N1!

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 26 Apr 2021
We arrived, tired, after driving from Wellington, and thoroughly enjoyed our over-night stay. All the guests seemed to arrive at about the same time as us - 4:30 to 5:30. We settled into our quaint room at the back of the stables and ambled along for drinks at 6. There is a cosy pub, lovely summer outside seating and separate sheltered eating facilities. We found ourselves with two other couples - doing the same route - in the main dining area and were treated to a really pleasing dinner. The bed was comfortable and we slept like logs. We chose to breakfast early, at 7, and shared the glassed-in room with another couple. The breakfast was also good. I specially liked the banana bread!
Date of stay: April 2021
Room Tip: There are two rooms at the back in a quaint setting.

Penny and Lexi and staff all go the extra mile to ensure a memorable stay. The dinner was excellent, the rooms are tidy with all amenities to be expected. The location is en route to Cape Town and the Garden Route.

We had a great stay and would recommend to friends. Great location very friendly hosts
The breakfast could be more substantial with fruit juices and yogurt and fresh fruit
We would have preferred the lamb to be roasted and sliced rather than "pulled"

Thanks Dawn and Roy for your comments. With regards to the dinner, however we did make you lamb casserole as per your request for dinner and we do have fruit and yoghurt on our breakfast menu.

We arrived at Kuilfontein Stables in the late afternoon, the perfect time for photography and you can't beat it for great Karoo scenery with windmills, 'vlaktes', sunsets and overall Karoo charm. We had a delightful room very conveniently situated right next to the dining area. They served the most delicious, succulent and juicy shredded Karoo lamb for dinner. The host Penny was most helpful in guiding us via Graaff Reinet to get to Prince Albert via Meiringspoort rather than going on the N1. Overall an excellent stop over on our way to the Cape.

Nothing beats showing up to a self-catering unit that can accommodate my family of 5 easily, and our pup is always welcome. Pre-ordered meals are left in the room, as is breakfast for a departure time of your choice. Staff is on hand to deliver a beer or bottle of wine, payment possible by POS. Just amazingly well organized.

Beautiful setting, away from the national road, yet close enough to get on the road again in the morning. Perfect accommodation for my overnight stay, lovely peaceful setting and views. Room was clean and nicely set out.
