“another wonderful stay at rouxwil”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

we made our annual visit to onel and thys who run this wonderful guest house alongside their large farm.
we had another of their large air conditioned suites which are really well equipped and laid out with stunning views over the fields and mountains.
thys took us on an educating trip of his successful farm and showed us his sheep shearing and breeding (he has approx. 3000 sheep) and his neighbour interesting fruit orchards.
the evening meals and breakfasts are excellent but we did miss thys river trip and barbecue this year.
we really like this guest house and is a great finale to our annual holiday in south Africa.

We stayed here three nights, the first of which was a small room near the main house, but we knew that when we booked. We were moved without fuss to room 3, which was stunning, huge, armchairs and a kitchenette and fridge. The service was faultless with nibbles arriving at tea time and, one day, a plate of melon at lunchtime. Dinner was with all the other guests, convivial with loads of laughs. Food was very very good. The wildlife in the nearby paddock kept us mesmerised for hours. If I had to pick a negative, and really i am being picky, dinner went on for hours and we didn't finish eating until after 10pm which is very late for us - sad people we are!!!!
Thank you o'nel and thys, especially for collecting a package of forgotten clothes at the post office for us and then taking my ipad cable to vergelegen. Forgetful old duffer I am!!!

Fabulous and a real gem of a place to stay. You are on a working farm and the luxury hillside suites are excellent. Spacious with a lovely bathroom with bath and walk in shower. The welcome we received from Thys and O'nel was matchless. When we arrived we were offered a drink so asked for a glass of wine. A bottle of Sauvignon Blanc on ice subsequently arrived which we drank sitting on the patio outside our room looking at the glorious view and the game. You dine together with the other guests for breakfast and dinner. Hardly surprising most of the guests are on repeat visits - as we will be next year

Excellent stylish accommodation, a very warm welcome, wonderful food (my husband voted it the best meal and he is a expert) with attractive floral decorations. Thys and O'Nel are perfect hosts. What more can one say. Wish we had found it on our previous trips.

I have stayed at Rouxwil many times but have never written a review for it before for two reasons. Firstly, apart from one review from someone who has never stayed here, all the reviews were 5 star which says it all. Secondly, I don't want the place to get so popular that we can't get accommodation! However, reading the recent 3 star review of Rouxwil I feel I must rise to their defence. I have seen O'nel and Thys in action many times offering advice, maps etc. Every morning at breakfast they are most attentive to guests wanting help. The rooms are perfect and we have never had trouble with the electricity so this is not a common problem. Any problems that may arise would be dealt with swiftly. Now there is wifi in all the guest rooms. It is not near the coast and never pretends to be but is an easy journey to Hermanus. I, for one, would not like a 'manager' as then Rouxwil would lose the personal touch. May it remain as it is forever.

Owners O'nel and Thys are perfect hosts. There's plenty to see nearby , and the farm and game add another interest to make Rouxwil a special place. The evening meal and their hospitality round off a perfect day...not to be missed.

We stayed two nights at Rouxwil Country House and beside the big five, great experiences in a township and four fantastic days in Cape Town - these two nights were a highlight which we love to remember!

Especially Thys and Oneal made our stay so special. We had intense and wonderfull discussions and could feel, see and taste love + passion in every corner!!! Usually we are not so much into "trip-advising", but we need to recommend this lovely place!

We are xing fingers for everyone that they have the chance to taste their kudu-pie and lamb shank. We had dinner at two of the ten best restaurants of South Africa but the food at Rouxwil was at least on the same level.

@ Thys & Oneal: Thank you very much! We loved it - Jenny + Martin
