Upon arrival we were upgraded to a family suite free of charge. We were also shown our booked option (deluxe room) which was also pretty good. But travelling with 2 kids, it was nice to have a bit of extra space.The grounds / gardens are well kept and the staff extremely helpful. For example, they washed our car before departure (!). Their restaurant overlooks the surrounding farmland and we had a delicious dinner. Fantastic place.

We stayed only for one night at this sweet guest house. The weather was a little inclement which was disappointing as both pleasant pools are not heated. The staff were great welcoming us. Our room was nicely equipped with large size fridge, tea and coffee facilities, water. The bathroom was nicely set out with shower and bath. The bedding was comfortable and perfectly nice linen. The room was a fair size but set outside was a large balcony area overlooking one of the pools and a sitting area too. There was wi-fi although not the best but free. The second larger pool had a wonderful view and was a beautiful place to sit, surrounded by ostrich farms and in the garden itself great bird life. We had dinner and breakfast at the guest house. They take orders for dinner from a moderately small menu which includes vegetarian options. The waiting staff were fine. Good wines. The meal was okay, I had a vegetarian stir fry and my husband had lamb chops with a rather thick jus but the portion sizes are enormous. Breakfast served a range of cold buffet options, including fresh fruit, yoghurts, pastries, cheeses and also took orders for hot food. Poached eggs were cooked in a mould with a rather tough outside and slightly overcooked yolk - and coffee and tea were served, although a large urn was used for hot water (personally I think it affects the flavour of the tea) and coffee was strong but otherwise a pleasant dining area and attentive team. High points: The bird life to watch in gate grounds and the views are the high spots for me. The room was of a good standard and staff were keen to attend to any additional needs. Less perfect points (for me) food was perfectly acceptable but no more than that...but this is in the middle of the Karoo area and they did have lots of salads options etc.

Dear Visitor Thank you for this beautiful review and rating, we are glad that you had a great time with us at De Denne! I had a meeting with my restaurant staff to discuss your last paragraph with them as we want to read "the food and service was excellent" We are really spending a lot of time in training, I have a professional chef who spends quality time with all my personal in the kitchen, especially to train them how to be "the best" and to put the best and attractive display on the tables. We will continue doing so! Thank you for staying with us and enjoying everything you have mentioned, this is much appreciated! Kind regards Johan and Louise

Dear Customer Thank you so much for this beautiful review and high rating, we really appreciate it. It is important that our guests must see and experience what we as owners are investing in our property, such as tough to detail in our rooms, bathrooms, restaurant, gardens etc. We really work hard to be the best, we know that we are not operating in a perfect world and that your staff can let you down in certain areas from time to time Luckily we have very friendly and helpful staff, we are very proud of all of them! I hope you had an enjoyable stay in South Africa and looks forward to welcome you back at De Denne! Kind regards Johan and Louise Keller
