Drove through the day touring to land up at Rijks Country House, a lovely warm welcome and restful rooms and helpful staff. The views are so pretty and feels like you far from the chaos so for us it was just the way to begin a lovely week of R & R.

Second time I've stayed there - it is a lovely escape from the City and not even far...love the farm feeling and ambience.Food was fantastic and their service is beyond any exoectation. The staff is very friendly and goes out of their way to delight you.

Room Tip: I prefer the rooms closer to the Hotel to the chalets.But purely because I can watch TV from my bed.

We loved the tranquil surroundings, great food in the restaurant and fantastic pinotage made on the farm. Comfortable rooms. Short distance from Cape Town makes this a great weekend getaway for city slickers

Dear tertius_van_dijk
Thank you for your review. I am so glad that you enjoyed the property. Tulbagh is just a hop, skip and jump from Cape Town and is an excellent break away destination. Looking forward to hosting you again!

Dear driesv546
Thank you for your review. I am so glad that you had the opportunity to wonder through the vineyards and enjoy the award winning pinotage. It truly is an excellent wine. Next time you come through, maybe try the Pinotage 888. It is a real treat! We are all looking forward to your return visit.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Nestled in the beautiful Tulbagh valley, this exquisite four star country house offers travellers and day visitors an exceptional experience in both service and facilities with remarkable attention to detail and a graceful elegance. Rijk's Country House is situated on the eminent Rijk’s Wine farm, home to Rijk’s Private Cellar, five minutes from the centre of Tulbagh. High trees and an abundance of Iceberg roses welcome you onto the Estate from where you can see hills of vineyards set against the Obiqua and Winterhoek Mountains. Restored Cape Dutch style buildings are the frame-work within which you will experience classic furnishings and a warm and relaxed ambiance. Should you wish to sample or purchase wines from the Estate, enjoy the Polo wine bar and tasting room where visitors can sit around a large restored wooden table, or outside on the terrace with its incredible views of the valley. Otherwise, relax in the charming lounge where you will find a library of reading materials and a cosy fireplace. International and traditional cuisine coupled with impeccable service can be enjoyed in the hotel’s intimate restaurant, Que Sera, or at a high table in the private dining area, Mon Ami. Alternatively, the outside Iceberg terrace is the perfect place to relax whilst having a decadently large cup of coffee, a glass of wine or dining al-fresco overlooking the dam or under the stars. Luxury and Superior rooms and Family Cottages - evident of innovative design and stylish fittings – have their own private terrace overlooking a river - along which you will find a swimming pool, braai and lapa area, the French game of boules and hundreds of beautiful roses. In the evenings you can sit on your terrace and watch the sun set behind the surrounding mountains, leaving the vineyards and trees silhouetted by a brilliant pink and orange sky. Picnic on the banks of the river or enjoy a romantic walk through the vineyards and rose gardens. Explore the town with its quaint shops and restaurants, travel the surrounding wine routes, or – for the more adventurous – go hiking or horse-riding through the vineyards and up the mountains. An all-encompassing luxurious experience with a beautiful view out of every window, Rijk’s Country House is sure to leave you feeling rejuvenated, relaxed and like you have discovered a little piece of paradise. ... more   less
