De Denne Country Guest House

Reviewed March 13, 2012

We felt very warm welcomed from the first moment on.
The guest house was established nicely. They showed us the facilities and helped us with the luggage. Car was beeing cleaned during night which was very kind as it was really dirty after having driven through the Karoo.
Every time we asked sth. they answered with patience and offered us support e.g. restaurant and trip recommendations. Breakfast was delicious and the ostrich tour organized by them was wonderfu.!

Louise and Johan at 'De Denne' deserve a very positive review of their guest house, as they have done a great effort in restoring their historic property, turning it into a very comfortable classy home for their guests. And they keep up the good work by making sure you have a memorable stay with them ; the relaxing atmosphere is not only there through the wonderfull vista from the poolside-area and the quiet location, but also as a result of their very friendly and unintrusive way of welcoming you. For the best dinner experience, do not drive to town ( which is only 10 minutes away) but enjoy the best ostrich steaks you'll ever have right there at your own veranda ! Side dishes and desert compete for 'best taste' award, and breakfast in the morning is excellent. We also enjoyed a (pretty much private) tour of the ostrich farm. Despite the eradication of most ostrich in the region due to viral infection, we were given a very informative and pleasant tour, ending with the children holding some new-born birds...they loved it ! Certainly one of the best choices if you're planning to stay in the Oudtshoorn area !

We've stayed at De Denne 3 times and loved it each time. It is set about 10km out of town in a beautiful peaceful setting. The cottages are all of a high standard and you can have peace and quiet away from the other guests. There is a nice pool to cool off in at the end of the day, it gets hot in summer. Good breakfast and evening meal if you want it. Bruno the dog is definitely the star of De Denne and we all fell in love with him, especially our two boys. A great stop over on the garden route and Oudtshoorn definitely worth a weekend of your time.

Wow! This place really is amazing. The rooms are huge and ours had recently been redone. We stayed in the main guest house, the building of which is 120 years old and furnished stylishly with antiques. We also enjoyed their hospitality as we stayed for dinner in the main guest house. As my wife and I both do not eat meat (and my wife does not eat gluten) they tailored their menu around us and the private candlelit dinner was perfect for our honeymoon (as was the complimentary bottle of champagne and flowers in the room). The guest house is a convenient drive from Cango caves and they also organise tours of ostrich farms which were incredibly informative and fun. The guest house also benefits from stunning views.

We recently spent (unfortunately) ONLY ONE night at this wonderful establishment and we really enjoyed every moment. From the well appointed rooms to the incredibly delicious ostrich steak prepared by owner Johan on the open fire. It was so wonderful to start our weekend off with so much luxury, wonderful food, attention to detail. It was just an overall wonderful experience. May the Keller-family, including the adorable Bruno, be blessed in abundance. We will be back!

We stayed with our two kids for two nights in the middle of October. Beutiful place, great sevice. very convenient for the oudshoorn area. The labrador (Bruno) immediately adopted us (the kids actually), Aida made us feel at home and the swimming pool was an immediate solution for the kids after the trip. They didn't want to leave after two days.When you book - ask if the separate unit is available - it's bigger and very nice. We also got discount in an ostrich farm when we brought the brochure signed by Aida. we only had breakfasts and they were great , we preferred to use the braii in the evenings.If we ever return to this area we will surelly come back again.

We really enjoyed a great ambience, hospitality and friendliness of Louise and Johan at De Denne. Unfortunately time is running so fast, especially during vacation.

Hope to return once again.
