Parts of Manley Wine Lodge hotel date back to the 1860s. Fortunately those parts do not include the plumbing which is all very modern and fully functional, offering distinctive accommodation in Tulbagh.
The main thatched Manor House, unlike most of the buildings in Tulbagh, does not follow the classic Cape Dutch design but reflects rather the French Huguenot homes of the late 19th century, an honest and homely character.
A short walk across the lawns from the thatched Manor House reception, dining and lounge areas we have 7 large luxury double (or twin) rooms, with both bath & shower en suite, TV & DSTV, air-conditioning, tea/coffee facilities, and bar fridges. The rooms are arranged around a shaded courtyard adjacent to the pool.
Most of our rooms also have their own fireplaces, making them especially cosy in winter when we have been known to get a dusting of snow on the mountains. Christmas in Winter!
Tulbagh accommodation is richer for our two beautiful thatched cottage apartments on the banks of our newly constructed dam.
The first is a large luxury cottage with all the usual room amenities and some limited self-catering facilities, although not ideal for full blown self-catering.
The second is home to our Bridal Suite with a wonderfully indulgent four poster bed, victorian-style bath and once again all the amenities of our other rooms.
During the year we stage a number of Special Events covering everything from midweek breaks to weekend gourmet experiences. They offer you the perfect excuse to break away from the city and join us for some well-earned rest (at the kind of rates you can’t really refuse). Keep a lookout or join our early-bird e-letter for the latest news.
“My wife and I decided to spend the Easter weekend at the Manley Wine Lodge. We are glad that we did as we had a relaxing time away from the city. The accommodation was first class, the tranquilly and views had a restorative effect. On arrival and throughout"-Mr Reeves, South Africa
