About Essere Lodge Guest House

Essere Lodge is located on the outskirts of Tulbagh; a picturesque town in the winelands of the Western Cape. Surrounded by majestic mountains and incredible gardens, this remote property offers complete privacy yet the town of Tulbagh is less than 10 minutes away and Cape Town a mere 80 minutes away.

The Guest House has six suites, all with private patio or private secluded gardens. Each room offers tea and coffee facilities, and some have a fridge and a fireplace. Experience the breathtaking views of the mountains, amongst wine farms and waterfalls.

Sit back and just listen to the sounds and take in the fragrances of nature. Take time for you by doing absolutely nothing, partake in workshops or engage in activities. Whatever you choose you will enjoy great service, incredible views, beautiful food, friendly staff and sumptuous suites.

Wedding Venues: We can offer a marquee set within a private area, with a variety of catering options to suit all budgets and tastes.

Romantic: Essere Lodge provides a tranquil environment, amidst stunning views of mountains and farmland. Sip a glass of champagne on a private balcony, or in the private garden of the honeymoon suite. Or take a picnic and explore the local countryside.

                  We booked in on the Friday and was met with a friendly welcome from the Essere team. They were extremely welcoming and immediately gave us advice on the local attractions.The lodge itself has beautiful views of the mountains and the communal area was amazing, filled with art and exceptional décor. We felt very welcome at the lodge and had such a great time.The food was amazing and the rooms was very clean and tidy. It was more like a 5 star experience. We will be booking in the coming days another visit to Essere without a doubt. A big thank you to Carmen, Peter and Arthur.....

                  The stay, although short, was perfect. The accommodation and surrounds were lovely. Essere has amazing facilities such as a lovely braai area and swimming pool!

                  I was very unsatisfied the room was tidy and clean but the lack of finesse and finer details was completely lost. The pillows was rock hard and very uncomfortable the tv leads were just hanging from the wall no neatness. Outside there was carpet hanging over the wooden fence and there was an old bed base in the garden ,believe me not for decoration it was a sight for sore eyesThe website had no pictures for the room.I will definitely not advice anybody to rent a room at Essere Lodge.Breakfast was good regardsPetro de Villiersps I feel it as not one cent spent worth it would actually like a...

                  Love the unique modern architecture and décor, combined with a warm friendly down to earth atmosphere. Beautiful relaxed setting. Wonderful friendly pets just added to the homely feeling. Topped off with a fabulous back, neck and shoulder massage.

                  The setting was absolutely magical and what stood out the most was the specific touch of the manageress. It was outstanding. The food was great, we were once surprised with roses spread all over in the bedroom and a bottle of wine. The special attention they give to each and every guest is spectacular. The Guest house itself, especially the landscaping within the premises was beautiful. It’s highly recommended.
