Warm & comfy stopover to cape town

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 04 Jun 2021via mobile
Travelling to Cape Town with two furkids. Stayed at the Pet Friendly paddocks. Simple clean accommodation with a meal ready to cook on your arrival. Met by staff who come to your room to check you & your fur friends. First cold snap (-5 when we left the next morning) and the rooms are lovely & warm and comfortable. Great after a long drive. We travel with our own dog beds/bowls. None are provided. Only recommendation is that the little stove was a bit inadequate for the cooking of the meal but otherwise a very pleasant stay. We’ll come back.
Date of stay: April 2021
Room Tip: Reservations essential, they are busy
Trip type: Travelled as a couple

This is the perfect stop over if you are driving from the Cape to the North. The converted stables make for lovely rooms and food is top notch. Beautiful venue in the magnificent emptiness of the Karoo. Snug bar with a welcoming fire and an attentive owner changes a stopover into an experience.

Really enjoyed the hospitality at Kuilfontein. Rooms were neat and comfortable and meals were very tasty. Enjoyed the pub session in the evening where other guests and hosts got together for a chat.
Good location for halfway stop on way to north.

Reviewed 28 April 2021

We had an excellent experience with the owner of Kuilfontein Stable & Paddock Cottages. Due to a positive Covid test, we had to cancel our booking at the last moment. Regardless of the owner's strict cancellation policy, Penny willingly offered to postpone our stay. Weeks later, we received a warm welcome by the staff and were delighted with our accommodation in the Paddocks, a spacious self-catering unit, overlooking the expanse of Karoo grassland. We pre-ordered a tasty dinner, which was put in the fridge for us, along with breakfast cereal, fruit etc. This working farm is a short drive off the N1. We will definitely choose to stay there again when we next travel.

Room tip: The Paddocks offer spacious self-catering units, with food options, The Stables are compact rooms and are catered.
