I stayed here on the advice of some friends. It's on the outskirts of town but a short enough walk to the centre to find something to eat in the evening (where IS everybody???). It was a comfortable stay and the breakfast is superb.

Dennehof is a beautifully renovated collection of historic farmhouses transformed into a small luxury hotel. OK, so Prince Albert is somewhat off the beaten track but the location is restful and the surroundings immensely enjoyable. Rooms are varied - we stayed in the Windmill room, one of the outhouses, which was a large old room with original brick thick walls and very atmospheric. Breakfast was splendid and served in a terrace across the driveway from the main house – the tables were set on a wooden dais over a stream with views across the fields to the mountains. An absolute delight. The small town has limited restaurants but we ate a good meal at The Gallery but clearly you need your own transport here. Good value for money at 860 Rand a night. Wifi reception is limited to certain areas of the hotel and unfortunately was unavailable in our room.

I have stayed at Dennehof on many occasions and in all seasons. Friendly hospitality, wonderfully comfortable beds in beautiful surroundings and, invariably, a fabulous breakfast to send me on my way when the time comes to leave. At this time of year, Dennehof's swimming pool was the only place to be on, yet another, lazy afternoon. Thank you, Ria and Lindsay and your wonderful staff for providing this haven. I'll be back!

Room Tip: The Forge is neat and intimate, the Windmill Suite has a jacuzzi in the bedroom! There's an outs...

The Dennehof is one of the first guest houses you come across, when entering Prince Albert from Oudtshoorn (via the scenic Swartberg Pass or the stunning Meiringspoort road) and arrive in the unforgettable Great Karoo. Dennehof has an incredible setting, close to the mountains, yet green and lush from it's water supplies. The welcome was friendly enough, and the rooms quite attractive and clean. We had a few irritations - some of the nights were unexpectedly chilly, and we were given small bundles of firewood for an extra charge per bundle (we'd been advised that this was one of the best guest houses in town, so this seemed rather mean). Breakfast is generous enough, but one of us had tea which was made with only warm water. over all, i'd give top marks for location, but a bit disappointed with value for money.

I highly recommend that anyone on the garden route takes a detour into the Karoo, with a landscape that is completely different from the coast. Semi desert, it is quite simply spectacular. Prince Albert is an ideal stop over, only about two and a half hours from George. A muts is to do the trip from OUdtshoorn via the amazing Swartberg pass. Dennehof used to be the best place to stay in Prince Albert, but it has become a little jaded. Service at breakfast can be very slow and somewhat indifferent.
