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).

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

Fantastic accommodation. Great service, outstanding food. We only had the one evening here but it was perfect. Highly recommended. The rooms are set round a grass courtyard - you feel miles away from the outside world.

We had an amazing night at the hotel and can only echo the last few reviews. Very relaxed, friendly staff and a lovely dinner. It is a very high quality ‘oasis’. They even cleaned the car for us before we left. Outstanding!
