We called the De Denne Guest house as we were approaching Oudtshoorn and they were able to accommodate us at short notice. We were met and shown our rooms which suited the farm style of the place. As it was the middle of winter and the Karoo is pretty cold we were pleased to find the room already heated for... More

We recently spent a month in Southern African and stayed in 18 different accommodations in 4 countries. De Denne rates in the top 4! Amazing location and fantastic service. We happened to be the only guests for the night we stayed (definitely would stay longer next time!) and were treated to 5 star service. Served a lovely meal by the... More

We keep coming back to De Denne because it’s such a lovely place and Johan and Louise are such nice people. The farm is about 15 miles outside Oudtshoorn, not too far to go in for dinner, yet you have the advantage of being out in the countryside. We love to sit on the patio and watch the sun set... More
