On one of my many trips to South Africa I decide to stay at this B and B. I found the place to be perfectly located overlooking the nature reserve. I found my stay to be extremely pleasant one. The owners are extremely friendly and accommodating. The owners will also take you bird watching or if you want to go... More

Our hosts went out out their way to accommodate our every need and even went the extra mile and always with a smile. The room was exceptionally clean and tidy and we enjoyed our... More

My wife and I stayed at Roosfontein as it is a pet friendly facility. The travel agent booked us a room with 2 single beds but the owners changed it to a double bed the moment we arrived. We did not even need to ask. Service was excellent and the breakfasts are huge. We could not finish our breakfasts. A... More

I didn't expect much from the pics, but this place and the view from the suite made me wish i lived there. Its so personal. Our hosts were friendly. I will definitely be staying here again. By the way, you wont get a better breakfast than the one served here.

Visited this beautifully situated accommodation bordering a Nature Reserve. The owners made you feel as you are one of the family, warm and welcoming. The food was fantastic and we were spoiled with local dishes for which you always wanted a second helping. We were shown around the Zulu and farmers markets in the near by areas, taken on bush...
