Rosenhof Country House: Our full report

The elegant Rosenhof Country House occupies a mid-19th-century single-storey homestead on the outskirts of ...

... Oudtshoorn, in South Africa’s Little Karoo. It is well placed for visits to the Cango Caves and several ostrich farms in the region. During our last visit, the rooms were being renovated and refurbished.

Although the entrance to Rosenhof is off a fairly busy main road, the house is surprisingly tranquil. There are 14 beautiful en-suite rooms, all surrounded by a neat rose garden, and some of the completed rooms are furnished in an understated style.
  • There are 12 ‘luxury’ rooms. They are all spacious, individually decorated and are equipped with air conditioning, telephones, hairdryers, satellite TVs as well as tea/coffee facilities. Each has a small terrace overlooking the garden. The bathrooms all come with separate baths and showers, heated towel rails and complimentary toiletries.
  • Set further away from the rest of the rooms the two suites have the same amenities but each come with its own private plunge pool, a separate cosy lounge and a patio with views towards the Swartberg Mountains.
The main central area at Rosenhof Country House incorporates several lounges with fireplaces and a small bar. We understand that traditional South African food is served in the elegant dining room, complemented by a selection of fine wines from their wine cellar.

Outside in the lovely garden are a swimming pool and a wellness centre with a gym, sauna and Jacuzzi.
