My family and I had a wonderful stay on Dick and Mary's farm. We felt welcome and at home from the moment we drove down the drive. The cottage was spacious, comfortable, and with some stunning views from the veranda. Dick made our children feel very much at home, letting them watch and help him tend to his chickens, as... More

Thank you Dick and Mary for farmfresh milk, eggs and figs. Not to mention the delicious muffins! We had a wonderful stay and could not wish for better views, a cleaner guesthouse or a more welcoming and homely setting. The Twines.

The cottage was warm despite it being one of the coldest weeks in winter. There were vases with fresh flowers, milk in fridge, cereals for the next morning, heaters, hot water bottles and what I appreciated was that it was scrupulously clean. While you might get all of the above in similar guesthouses, you will be hard-pressed to find the... More

Wonderful guest house. Dick and Mary were excellent hosts providing everything we could want including delicious dinner and breakfasts. Our children loved the farm and hiking to the dam overlooking the valley. The house is very clean and comfortable and we hope to return soon.

We stayed with Dick and Mary on an extended South African tour, and Rolbaken was definitely a highlight. The farm is in a peaceful and isolated valley shared with two donkeys, sheep and chickens. The accommodation is perfect and Mary brought up a delicious breakfast, plus dinner every evening to enjoy on our stoep. The rare Cape Mountain Zebras duly... More

A wonderful stop to relax and have a sense of life on a farm with luxurious accommodation. Mary and Dick are wonderful hosts and make you feel really at home. Their cooking is absolutely out of this world - all home made and fresh. The guest house is beautifully furnished and spacious. One feels very much at home in a... More

We stayed at Rolbaken recently to break the journal from Cape Town to Addo National Park (and to visit the nearby Cango Caves). What a wonderful spot. Mary and Dick were wonderful hosts - showing our children around the farm, cooking a fantastic meal, and dinning with us as well. They went out of their way to deal with our... More

Rolbaken Country Guesthouse is absolutelly perfect. Hosts, Mary and Dick, really go out of their way to make their guest feel welcome and completelly at home - and this is "home away from home". There is always something totally special when food is served for breakfast and dinner. The fact that both Mary and Dick join their guests for breakfast... More

The first 3 nights of our family holiday saw us roaring into Rolbaken. We had a wonderful time from the first. The cottage has a lovely spirit and is fittingly furnished with oldy world furniture. We look the master room in the main house, with our toddler conveniently located in a twin across the lounge. Granny and Big Dave were... More
