Aangenaam, rustig.

'n Baie heerlike kuier. Norma en Norman was gasvry en behulpsaam. Het ons geakkommodeer waar nodig. Het 'n heerlike ontbyt geniet.

Beautiful country setting, a wonderful place to sit back and absorb the tranquillity of nature with abundant bird life.

Well located next to the Karkloof Canopy Tour. Delicious breakfasts and good service. Comfortable beds and well stocked tea/coffee station in the lounge.

Just wonderful and peaceful.

What a wonderful place to unwind and relax. Norma, most excellent hostess, really goes out of her way to make your stay pleasant. Feels like home. Breakfast was fabulous, Norma puts so much love into preparing the food with supper being even more so. My room was cosy and really beautiful, with everything I needed. I met the most lovely people. Will most definitely recommend Thistledown Country House as a wonderful getaway of tranquillity and peace.

One of the best ever!

Absolute value for money. Very well appointed rooms and clean and tidy. Excellent breakfast. Then we won't even talk about dinner! Norma and Norman are incredibly hospitable and friendly and nothing is too much trouble. Thank you very much, we will definitely stay there again.

Van die beste ooit!

Absolute waarde vir geld. Baie goed ingerigte kamers en silwerskoon en netjies. Uitstekende ontbyt. Dan praat ons nie eers van die aandete nie! Norma en Norman is ongelooflik gasvry en vriendelik en niks is te veel moeite nie. Baie dankie, ons sal vir seker weer daar gaan oornag.

Vyfster verblyf, diens en kos - Norma, jou kos verdien meer as vyf sterre.

Thistledown bied by verre die beste waarde vir geld vir wat hulle bied. Die verblyf, die diens, die ontbyt en aandete (op versoek) is uit die boonste rakke. Hulle gee aandag aan detail wat ons nie eers verwag het nie. Norma, jou kos was uitmuntend. Ons sal vir seker terug wees. Weer en weer en weer.

Dit was ongelooflik lekker en ons sal vir seker terugkom met sulke vriendelike diens, baie lekker eet en alles silwerskoon!

Ons sal die gastehuis enige tyd aanbeveel! Die mense is so vriendelik, die kamers baie mooi en skoon en die ontbyt was so lekker! Sal moet volgende keer vra vir aandete ook, hulle kos na so groot en lekker ontbyt.

Uiters aangenaam en rustig.

Ons het werklik lekker gebly en sal weer kom en aan vriende aanbeveel. Die hele opset is rustig en netjies en die gasheer en sy ontbyt was onverbeterlik.

Ons verblyf was uiters aangenaam en ons het dit terdeë geniet en geen versoek aan die gasvrou was te veel gevra nie.

Met ons aankoms is ons vriendelik verwelkom en is ons na ons skoon en netjiese kamer geneem. Aandete was uit die boonste rakke en ontbyt was puik. Ons sal verseker weer daar aandoen in die toekoms.

Baie stil, en baie lekker gebly!

Ontbyt was 'n ware wenner en as jy kan, reël gerus vir aandete. Norma is 'n bobaas-kok! Sal my definitief volgende jaar weer sien!

Gesellig en mooi!

Dit is 'n baie mooi, rustige omgewing. Die tuin is baie lewendig met alle soorte voëls. Ons het aandete vir 2 aande by Norma geëet en die kos was fantasties en kulinêr voorberei, beslis die moeite werd om te bespreek. Die ontbyt was baie groot, maar baie lekker.

Rustig, gesellig, warm kaggelvuur!

Pragtige omgewing, mooi uitsig, veilig. Ons het nie bespreek vir aandete nie, maar Norma het nogtans vir ons die lekkerste steak met groente en slaai met 'n baie lekker slaaisous, asook nagereg voorberei. Ons kan dit baie beslis aanbeveel. Die volgende oggend se ontbyt was ook baie lekker en keurig voorberei.

Ons het ons verblyf terdeë geniet, soveel so dat ons weer 'n nag oorgeslaap het.

Ons was baie beïndruk met die gasvryheid, netheid, pragtige tuin en heerlike ontbyt wat ons hier geniet het. Selfs 'n kaggelvuur toe dit koud was.

Tranquil setting, excellent service, relaxing stay

The setting of the guest house is in a very tranquil garden with lots of bird activity. We even had a visit from a bush buck and her baby! Service was excellent, food superb and the bed was extremely comfortable.
