We arrive with high expectations from this lodge. We checked in to our room at afternoon. The room is very average - old furniture, bad smell. The problems begun when there were no hot shower in the shower. This kind of things may happen (shouldn't happen in a place which pretend to be "luxury") so we asked for the staff... More

Dear Guest Thank you for taking the time to write this review, please do give me the opportunity to respond respectfully.

We stayed at De Denne Country Guest House on our business trip down the garden route to Cape Town. From the minute we arrived, we were greeted with a warm and friendly lady who explained that she wanted to sign us in and gave us a nice Port welcome drink. She then took our dinner order, so that we didn't... More

We really enjoyed staying at De Denne! The rooms are really comfortable with a small kitchenette with small fridge. The beds are really comfortable & friendly/helpful staff. Breakfast was delicious & dinner even better! There is a nice swimming pool & loungers for summer time. The free wifi was also available in the rooms.

Beautifully appointed cottages, each one different with top of the line bathroom amenities. All are luxury rooms, no one location better than another. Excellent service from staff. My husband was not well and the kitchen prepared a special meal and brought it to our cottage. Dinner and breakfast were both very good. Excellent value for money.

Our room was very spacious , comfortable and clean with a superb en suite. A mini bar, coffee making facilities and free wifi was available. Although our room overlooked the car park , a... More

It was raining when we got there and they checked us in at the cottage. Sheets and towels were clean but trash cans were not totally empty. Found dust in the cupboards and some corners of the floor also. Could be because it is in the middle of the farm. However, they have very friendly staff and even someone to... More

We found this to be the most comfortable and best equipped of all the places we stayed in South Africa. The room was lovely, stylish and spacious, effectively a suite with a distinct sitting room area and sleeping area. The en-suite bathroom had a separate bath and shower. As others say, it's out of town and on an ostrich farm,... More

One of the best guesthouses on our 3 week circuit of South Africa:) Absolutely in the middle of nowhere and on a working ostrich farm, you have the most charming, huge rooms in the old farmhouse.
