Dennehof Karoo Guesthouse
Ranked #3 of 20 Prince Albert B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 2, 2013

Great accommodation in a beautiful setting and wonderful hosts. I'd say the only thing missing was a view of the setting sun from your veranda but that was easily remedied by a 100m walk up to the old reservior. Great breakfast under the trees in the beautiful garden.

Dennehof oozes with old world charm and modern touches where they matter. The various rooms each have different character and furnishings that make the most of their shape and size. The garden has a cute pool and a few chill-out areas under the trees.

Room Tip: Have a look at all available rooms - they're all so different.

The small town of Prince Albert was recently featured in a South African reality cooking series, so when my partner and I visited the Western Cape we decided to stop over for a night. We chose Dennehof as our guest house were not disappointed at all. The rooms were clean and the "honesty bar" fridge in the room was stocked with everything we needed. I was especially impressed with the friendliness of the staff. As for breakfast, I can highly recommend the Dennehof stack - absolutely delicious. We will definitely be back again.

It was bitter cold with lots of winter rains ,relentlessly battering our recently retired Home in Hermanus ,when my wife Suzanee,demanded...."let's go somewhere!!"...so we decided on the Karoo around eastern cape,to see what we could find
The news that the swartberg pass was closed due to very heavy snowfalls ,resulted in a detour via Oudshoorn and the majestic Meiringskloof pass and the Prince Albert valley,to get to the old Victorian hamlet,est around 1800,s,hidden away in the remote Karoo,of Prince Alfred hamlet
We made no prior arrangements,so we checked out all the top spots on offer,but it was at Dennehof that the charming Riaana,offered us her "honeymoon suite" that we figured...no contest to this place
The garden has an orange tree decked with huge juicy ,inviting oranges,flanked by a statue of a naked beauty,with water flowing all over her,the image resonating with the essence of what this place is all about( it was even harder than last time we started?)

After exploring the Victorian hamlet ,with fascinating discoveries like the cheeses at Gay,s dairy
,we retreated to our wonderful room where a fabulous bottle of red CWG in front of our fireplace in a awesome old room with lots of memories seduced us into a relaxed mood

After a very acceptable dinner ,and lots more wine,we retreated from the icy freezing cold to the warmth of our den....the silence ,and warmth ,balm for our weary bones

The next morning greated us with warm yellow sunshine,and the crisp mountain air ,and this awoke our appetites
The dining room of the very old manor house is intimate and totally awesome,warmed by an old fod burning wooden stove and a breakfast setting found only in the most celebrated restaurants
The lovely young waitresses,dressed in their splendid uniforms,and armed with disarming smiles,served us with quiet professional attention
The breakfast,presented and shared with infinite detail was as tasty as it was satisfying
We will be back,and then we will stay longer
We strongly recommend DENNEHOF and stay awhile......you will be enriched!

We have been to Prince Albert a few times and have stayed at a couple of places which were all great. This time we were lucky enough to get in (last time it was full) and we will definitely go back. The original farm homestead of Prince Albert which has been lovingly restored to provide authentic, extremely comfortable and well, priced accommodation. Don't eat for a week, the breakfast are plentiful and sensational, always cooked by Ria, the owner herself. Ria is the perfect host and went out of her way to ensure that our stay in Prince Albert super exceeded our expectations. The attention to detail oozes out of every crevice at Dennehof. Cannot recommend too highly. Just book and go! Thanks Ria!

Prince Albert, the "Dorp van Die Jaar" 2012, aka the coolest dorpie in the Karoo. We had found Dennehof in Frommer's and on TripAdvisor. Per the Frommer's recommendation we reserved the Wagon Shed and were pleasantly surprised at how charming the unit was. Spacious, with some neat historic and art items. Tiny bath room with just a shower, no bath but: there was a nice patio with an al fresco bath tub. This sounded great but, it was infested with ants and other bugs, going after some fruit ands leaves in the tub. Probably normal here, as there was a can of bug killer in the unit and we used that and a lot of water to clean the tub. This was about the only negative: one would think this could have been cleaned out before our arrival. The main building and outside breakfast area across from it were lovely, and the breakfast itself delicious, served by friendly staff. This small complex is very private and spacious - a bit far to walk (when it's hot) but only a few minutes driving from the small "downtown" main street area with its art galleries and restaurants. We totally loved our meal on the Gallery Cafe's upper floor veranda during a major lightning storm!

Room Tip: We enjoyed the Wagon Shed at ZAR 1,060 including a great breakfast for two because of its spaciousne...
