Rosenhof Country House

Oudtshoorn, Garden Route

The hotel

Named for the delicate roses that scent its beautiful gardens, Rosenhof Country House mixes pure luxury with a real feel of old South Africa. Starting its life as a Cape-Dutch homestead back in 1862, a sympathetic makeover has since turned it into one of Route 62’s most idyllic boutique hotels. And its privileged spot outside Oudtshoorn on the Garden Route puts you close to popular pit stops like Cango Caves and Meerkat Adventure – and gives you incredible mountain views. It’s kept its intimate homely feel – featuring just 14 rooms and suites, as well as elegant lounges, where you can snuggle up around fireplaces (although, unlike most homes, you can also take a dip in its outdoor swimming pool, indulge in treatments at its wellness centre, and tuck into delectable dishes in its dining room).

A warm welcome and beautifully appointed rooms - food was fantastic and service was delightful - you will not be disappointed. A good base to progress onto the Garden Route and some interesting points to see nearby - Cango Caves well worth a visit

This is a great place. Beautiful historic house. Great courtyard of suites adjacent. Stunning grounds and a great restaurant. We stayed one night breaking a journey from PE to Capetown but wished we’d booked to stay a few nights. It really is a delightful place. You won’t be disappointed

The Rosenhof is a charming Country House which is very well run. On top of the beauty of the property and the outstanding services, we would like to mention the excellent food quality and the modern fitness area. We would like to recommend strongly the Rosenhof if you pass throught this region!

We received 5 star treatment from the moment we arrived. Once you enter the gates, you are transformed to luxury. The rooms are very spacious with a fully stocked mini bar (Paid as used). The dinner and breakfast was delicious. There is a small gym, and spa facilities need to be booked in advance
