We enjoyed a one night stay at the self catering cottage across the street from the main guest house. There was plenty of space and it was very comfortable. We were shown around the guest house itself and were welcome to use the many facilities including games room and hot tub!! De Kelders is more or less a suburb of... More

The Roundhouse Guesthouse provided us with an excellent opportunity to break away from the hustle and bustle of city living. A comfortable, clean environment with breakfast to die for. We will definitely be back!

We very located in the self catering cottage next to the Roundhouse and enjoyed our stay. The house, especially the kitchen is very well equipped, the beds are very comfortable. We loved the fireplace which was very useful to heat the living room.

We booked thinking we were staying in the Round House, which advertised as a B & B. We were placed in a house across the street from the actual Round House, so be careful when you book! The house was fine, clean and comfortable, but no jacuzzi and no breakfast. We booked thru Expedia so maybe that was the problem.

Thanks for your review. Unfortunately our hands are tied with regards to writing content for the big booking engines such as Expedia and booking.com and especially on expedia it is very difficult to view what the accommodation looks like with regards to photos and descriptions. The platform is extremely limited and I have brought this to their attention. This is... More

Was the perfect family weekend away. Beautiful house, nicely situated with everything around it, felt homey and very relaxing - actually wished we had booked a longer time. Will definitely visit again!

Had a great stay at the Roundhouse. The room was beautiful and had all the makings of a perfect weekend getaway with a loved one, from the cosey lounge area to the king size bed and even the Jacuzzi bath in the room. I will definitely reccommend a stay at the Roundhouse.
