Staff was more than welcoming and made us feel at home! The rooms and bathrooms were super clean and neat :) Map in the webpage needs to be a bit more clear as we battled some to arrive at the correct place ( used gps as well but took us through unpaved roads). Otherwise, pleasant stay!!

Beautiful tranquil setting. Wonderful accommodation, wonderful food and excellent service. Even you car gets cleaned every morning. Away from the noise of busy roads and cities into this peaceful environment. Yet only 10 minutes from town. Let Rudy share his intricate knowledge of the night skies and nature with you.

We stayed in the "pophuis". This was really nice. Very clean and very smart. The host, Rudy is very nice and help full and so are the owner.

Dear Anton, it was absolutely wonderful having you here! I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us, the "pophuis" does have its own charm and for some reason are one of the family suites that are most often booked. Maybe it is the kaggel in winter time or the beautiful view from the verandah or the fact... More

Our family of 4 stayed over at De Denne for 4 nights. Our cottage was very well furnished, with beautiful views of the Klein Karoo. Our friendly host Rudi went out of his way to make our stay a memorable one, sharing information about the region and organising outings. Restaurant food was excellent. Thank you Rudi and staff!

De Denne Country Guest House offers extraordinary luxury, service, friendliness, setting and the list goes on. The staff are a dream, from the reception staff, restaurant staff, hosts, management, housekeeping ladies. The room and bathroom was spotless, and well appointed.

I recently had the privilege to visit De Denne. Arriving late on a winding dirt road I was a bit suspicious as, all we could see, where bob wire fences and some shrubs along the track.

Wonderful place to stay! Stayed here with my young family. Wonderful food and location and accommodations were excellent. Highly recommended! We ate outside under the African stars and had ostrich steak. Truly magnificent. A nice bonus is the car got a good wash before we left without even asking for it! Fabulous
