A lovely boutique hotel in the countryside around Oudsthoorn Surrounded by ostrich farms with meerkats not far away. The hotel also has its own local farm Food is good. Bedrooms are very comfortable and everything works. Except the wifi which does not work in the rooms. Relaxing place to stay

As a regular visitor to south Africa we tend not to book anything in advance as we never seem to end up where we want to be anyway, so our 1 night stay at “De Denne” wasn’t planned or booked.

We had the most wonderful stay here on way to Cape town. Excellent accomodation. We were dissappointed that we did not book for dinner as well as it smelled sooo good. Breakfast was great. Worthwhile to spend a few days at this ostrich farm
