We spent three weeks in South Africa iin April 2011. We stayed at Rouxwil for two nights and had a fantastic time. Thys and O'nel are the perfect hosts,charming helpful yet not bothering you if you want to be left alone. My two children loved the dogs and the farm in general and as we stayed for two nights Thys took us on a tour of the farm he was interesting and informative. The food was fantastic both dinner and breakfast were out of this world. The rooms are spotlessly clean and nicely finished. I could not fault this place in any way, i thought it was superb.

Rouxwil Country House, owned by hospitable, relaxed yet competent hosts, O'Nel and Thys Roux, is situated between Villiersdorp and Caledon, a great stopover between Cape Town and the Cape Winelands, and the Garden Route. A peaceful working farm within easy reach of the pictureque village of Greyton, the Bot River wine estates such as Beaumont and Gabrielskloof, Every time we return, we discover the hugely comfortable and thoughtfully equipped bedrooms and bathrooms, all kept spotless and in perfect working order. Generous delicious breakfasts and dinners, a pool and scenic walks and drives, make this a worthwhile venue for more than just one night.

We stayed 3 nights at Rouxwil Country House during our 3-week South African holiday this month and we thoroughly recommend it to anyone.

We'd strongly support all the positive reviews of the farm on Tripadvisor - this really is one of the top 2 or 3 B&Bs we've ever stayed in. This opinion has been endorsed by Thys and O'nel winning for the second consecutive year the 'Country House' section of the AA Travel Guides American Express Accommodation Awards in Durban in 2011 (O'nel returned from receiving the award during our stay!). Thoroughly well deserved in our opinion.

Thys and O'nel are charming and engaging company with encyclopaedic local knowledge and great commitment to giving their guests a top-quality stay. We particularly enjoyed the farm tour given by Thys, who explained how his seed-planting machines were working while driving us alongside them across the field in a 4x4, and we also learned rather more than we expected about the modern technology of sheep breeding!

The rooms are spacious and extremely well decorated and equipped, and the views across the rolling grasslands are stupendous; the farm is very peaceful at night. We recommend both breakfasts and dinners, and they have a good selection of very reasonably priced wines (especially we recommend the nearby Robertson Valley products).

Rouxwil is well situated for pleasant 30-40' drives to both Hermanus and Franshhoek, so this fitted perfectly with our intended itinerary between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth.

There are no TVs in the rooms, which we rather approved of (there is one in the guest sitting room), and there's no wifi internet. We did have good mobile phone reception, however.

Do go - we guarantee you won't regret it.

We will certainly be back for our third visit as soon as we can, we love it here. Thys and O'Nel are wonderful hosts and the farm has the most wonderful rooms with everything you could possibly ask for at a B & B. We stayed for 4 nights, including Valentines Day, and O'Nel made the evening very special with a superb dinner. The river trip was great fun, and very different from our trip round the farm the previous year, we will definitely be back and hope that we will be able to get a booking, because with all the praise this B & B is getting, it may well be difficult to book.

Just returned from our 3rd stay at Rouxwil and each stay, if possible, just gets better and better.What makes it so special is the welcome, care and friendliness given by O'Nel and Thys. It is a very special place - they gave us a magical last evening in SA by taking all the guests down the river for a bbq on their pontoon - we were surrounded by the noises of an african night with all the stars and the moon reflecting on the river - what a wonderful memory to go home with and it makes us long to return again
