“Fabulous place”
Reviewed November 21, 2010

We had a beautiful suite overlooking the garden area, throughout our trip, this has to be the biggest room we stayed in. On site they have a gym, pool, restaurant, Spa Room, Sauna and Jacuzzi room. The place is well looked after. The pool is a decent size, unlike some palces I stayed and found them very small pools. I also had a spa treatment was very good, she was lovely. The staff were very friendly and most helpful. Breakfast was amazing and the choice was gr8. We also had a set meal there one evening, it was great and definately value for money. Really relaxing time there and would recommend others to stay there.

This hotel is a real gem! The luxurious bedrooms overlook a lawned central area with a fountain and everything is in immaculate condition. The hotel staff are eager to make your stay as enjoyable as possible - good old-fashioned service!

My partner took me to Rosenhof, during our visit to South Africa, for my birthday. She had stayed there a few years earlier and had enjoyed Rosenhof very much. It was the perfect place in which to spend my special day. Rather than go out we spent the day relaxing by the pool, having massages and good food/wine. We were constantly supplied with chilled water. At breakfast I had been greeted with a cake, champagne and a native song from one of the staff.
We stayed at Rosenhof for 4 days in total. It is located in the middle of the ostrich area. That made for interesting sights and good eating!
I would strongly recommend Rosenhof if you are travelling along the Garden Route. The staff could not have been more attentive, nor the quality of accommodation (individual suites complemented by and a colonial style house) more comfortable. My one regret is that I failed to award Rosenhof 6 marks out of 5 in their Visitors Book. Still I can always rectify that next time!

Well it was certainly romantic being just about the only guests (early September) and having one of the two separate executive suites. The suite was truly excellent, well-furnished in a grand traditional fashion. The bathroom was excellently equipped and the private pool area was a real pleasure, even though we had to share it quite often with a visitor, a giant tortoise. The suites back onto an area of forest and wetland so there are a lot of birds and in the evenings you get a real sense of being out in the wild, although you are of course only a few yards from the main bar/restaurant . The restaurant is for residents only and had a limited set course menu so we didn't try it. The breakfasts were fantastic - as good as anywhere else I have been in SA with the possible exception of the Fancourt in George or the Mount Nelson in Cape Town. We did have one lunch which was also very good. The staff were all very pleasant and professional. Lots of nice touches like washing your car (definitely needed after going over the Swartberg pass) and the sauna/jacuzzi was good - we did not try the spa itself.

Rosenhof is not a cheap place to stay but we felt it was good value.

We were very pleasantly surprised. The Rosenhof Country House is real lovely oasis in the Oudtshoorn where we stopped for two nights during our Garden route trip.
We did not try the restaurant but the breakfast was probably the best from our trip! Excellent service, very friendly staff!

This is a lovely place. They staff are very friendly and welcome you upon your arrival. The rooms are very nice-overlooking a quaint garden setting and very peaceful. The breakfast is served in a nice outdoor setting in the garden-the food is excellent and they serve champagne!!
