Overview of The Tulbagh Boutique Heritage Hotel

Set at the foot of two mountain ranges and just about hour’s drive away from Cape Town, the town of Tulbagh has long been famous for its tranquil nature and magnificent scenery. Add outdoor pursuits such as golf, hiking, mountain biking, and wine and olive tasting to the mix as well as museums, appealing architecture and fine food and you have an off-the-beaten track destination worth discovering as part of a visit to the Cape Winelands.

The Tulbagh Boutique Heritage Hotel offers discerning travellers luxury accommodation at the heart of the experience and makes the perfect base from which to explore the area. You can choose between the hotel’s 17 rooms, ranging from an indulgent honeymoon suite to contemporary or period rooms located in the main hotel or in historic buildings opposite. All are en suite, air conditioned and have complimentary Wi-Fi as well as a host of other comforts and conveniences. An in-house wellness and beauty therapist is on tap to help you relax and rejuvenate.

Centrally located in this quaint town, the hotel welcomes families as readily as it does privacy-seeking couples and honeymooners; it is an ideal accommodation for a self-driving holiday and the perfect stop on an itinerary that takes in Cape Town, the Cape Winelands and the Garden Route. Spend your time here tasting local fine craft gins, wines and olives from the area.

          Located in the quaint country village of Tulbagh, this historical boutique hotel is so much more than just a base to explore the vineyards, historical buildings and zip-lining that the area has to offer. The staff here are incredibly friendly, and the chef serves up some of the best home-style comfort food that I have had in a long time!
