We had a short, but very sweet stay over the long weekend! The setting is too gorgeous, the breakfast was delicious and the staff were very friendly! An ideal stop for couples looking to get away from the hustle of Cape Town.

We went to Essere Lodge for a weekend sleepover, had a birthday and wedding on. The cabin that we stayed in was perfect, we loved everything, from the heated lights in the bath room to the flowers on our bed to the lovely lemon verbena liquid soap, the warm welcome from Alison and staff, the 2 dogs, Watson and Sherlock and the 2 horses and cat! The view and surroundings were amazing!! The cabin was well equipped with everything that we needed and more. We are usually frustrated with not enough plugs etc,the small things, they cater for everything, air con, heaters everything!! We will definitely go back! Thanks for an awesome weekend Alison

This place was very special. The family have taken on a massive project to restore this land and the beautiful converted buildings within and they have done a splendid job.
We so enjoyed relaxing outside on the terrace with a lovely braai. The owners dogs - Sherlock and Watson :) I wanted to taken them home with me!

Myself and my girlfriend really enjoyed our stay here. The owner, Allison, was incredibly helpful and friendly and really made us feel welcome. The layout of the lodge is well done which really adds to the relaxing atmosphere. One of the comfiest beds I have ever slept in.

A perfect, quiet, relaxing spot to use as your base if you're visiting Tulbach.
Essere is tucked away from the hustle and bustle of life, but is really conveniently located at the same time.
A truly pretty setting.

We had the brand new two bedroom, self-service log cabin and are very sorry that we were only there for one night. We will definitely try to get there again for a longer period. Very comfortable and peaceful. Alison was kind and helpful with information for places to eat and things to do and see.

We found Tulbagh to be close enough to Cape Town for a quick weekend away with family & friends.
Clean town with stunning wine farms, wine tasting and lovely restaurants.

Very picturesque with great hiking, mountain biking trails.

Lots of convenient shops in the town.

Can't wait for our next visit.
