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. Although a freezing night, the beds include hot blankets and even a hot water bottle is included with turn-down, what... More

We stayed in the family room at De Denne which comfortably fit the 5 of us. It was clean and well-equipped, even for cold winter nights. We loved the warm hospitality of Rudi and the owners Johan and Louise Keller and the lovely staff at the restaurant. We enjoyed the tranquillity of the estate and sitting at the patio looking...

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. How pleasantly surprised have we been when entering the guest house "yard" Lush green lawns, lid-up palm trees and a beautiful old style Farmhouse.... More

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

Lovely review!! Thank you so much :) The outside dinners are a great experience for couples and families, the views and the stars add to the ambiance and then off course on a Ostrich farm an Ostrich steak is a must! I will share your compliment on the steak with Michael - he will appreciate this. Greetings to your family... More

Lovely,clean room with a view that stretches for miles.Ideal for sitting on the veranda with a cold beer,glass of wine,or a cup of tea if that's your poison! Nice spacious lounge and restaurant/breakfast area. All the staff were very friendly,but top marks go to the head honcho,Rudi.... More

The town was packed with people arrived for the Marathon. I went to the Tourism Office and they suggested me this place as very nice. And indeed it is. I had this room on the main building, once the house of the family, everything was nice, large room, large lounge where i was offered some nice Porto to sip. Being... More

Being on the country side does have its own charm away from the huzzle and buzzle but it might not be to everyone's preference. We surely enjoyed having you as our... More

We stayed at the De Denne Guesthouse for two nights in February with our two small children! The property and grounds are beautiful and very peaceful!

This is the place for peace and quiet, in the middle of the Klein Karoo with views of the Swartberg Mountains to the north and the Outeniqua Mountains to the south. We stayed in the honeymoon suite, which has only been finished in the last year from the original kitchen in the farmhouse. A massive room and beautifully decorated. Obviously... More

Dear Howard C :) Thank you for this lovely review, you are quite right that in the little Karoo gardening might be a little more challenging than in the areas that has more frequent rain. What helps a lot is the dam we build to enable us to gather water in the rainy season as well as the bore hole... More
