Treated like old friends, given the run of this marvelous period guest house - couldn't have asked for more! Rolf is the wonderful owner, who couldn't do enough for us when we arrived hot & bothered for an overnight stay. When we return to sample more wine, I wouldn't even think of staying anywhere else.

Rolf and Laura are the most elegant hosts I've ever met. You feel part of the family, and at home. They even went out of their way to organise me transport to a local restaurant. Potential visitors wont be dissapointed when they book in. The place should be 5 star!!!! So quiet and relaxing, one just want to stay, and... More

I have stayed at the Monta Rosa 15+ times (I'm a business traveller) and more recently, finally made it as a holiday. The house is a beautiful period colonial design with all the original features.

Have stayed here now on a few visits to South Africa but most recently over the New Year. On arrival you are welcomed by Rolf who has owned the guesthouse for a number of years, and who is more than obliging to assist with recommending local activities and restaurants (horse riding, wine-tasting, golfing etc) Most of the rooms in the...
