What a surprising spot in the middle of nowhere, far from madness and stuff. Just a luxurious room and bathroom and a terrace on the porch, for ourselves and Michael washing our car: needed cleaning after the Swartbergpasstrip! And dinner was served in a nice restaurant, with very friendly and adequate staff to serve us, especially Shirley, she was so... More

We stayed here as we were doing a Meerkat adventure tour in Oudtshoorn. Very nice property with lovely views drinking sundowners as the sun goes down. Very friendly staff and a good value evening meal. You can do the Meerkat tour and make it back for Breakfast, They also own the nearby Highgate Ostrich Farm which provides good tours.

We stayed at De Denne as part of our honeymoon in September 2013. The room itself is lovely - a large king sized bed in a stable with half door. Then a lovely kitchen and massive bathroom. The views are also outstanding. My only issue was the service. We had asked for De Denne to cook our Ostrich on our... More

We booked at de Denne based on the reviews from other travelers - so were really looking forward to our stay and had high expectations. Because we were traveling with our 9 month old baby we also specifically chose de Denne because of its self catering cottages. The staff were all very welcoming and friendly and the location is lovely... More

We originally planned a 3-night stay and after our first night extended to a week! From the time we arrived at this perfect location with beautiful grounds and exceptional view, we experienced top-notch service. Personalized dinners set up on our private veranda were delicious (we ended up eating at the guest house 5 of the seven nights). The attention to... More

We loved every minute of our 5 night stay. There was so much to do and see in and around Oudtshoorn, it brought back wonderful memories of my childhood in South Africa. The accommodation was very good, clean and comfortable. The view from our unit was magnificent. The atmosphere was one of peace and solitude, with beautiful starry nights. We... More
