We were invited to a small private birthday function yesterday. We have stayed in many amazing hotels all over the world, but are honest to say that our night at Rosenhof was exceptional. From the warm friendly staff, particular Elina to the top class restaurant and their amazing rack of lamb, to the superbly fitted suites in the courtyard. Breakfast was fit for a king. Highly recommended to local and international visitors being close to the caves, wild cat parks, crocodile parks, ostrich farms and the beautiful Klein Karoo countryside. Highly recommended.
The best boutique hotel in all the Klein Karoo!
Rosenhof Country House is a tranquil 5-star boutique hotel in the Klein Karoo town of Oudtshoorn that always exceeds one’s expectations. If you’re considering a special stay in Oudtshoorn, look no further, make the booking, you won’t be disappointed. As regular visitors from not too far away, Rosenhof was the obvious choice for my new wife and I, neither of us as young as we once were, to fit in a quick mini-honeymoon over the weekend of 17 October 2021 after we tied the knot the previous Saturday. Many things stand out at Rosenhof: the beautifully maintained mature gardens, especially the heritage rose garden, the attention to detail, the exquisite table, but most of all, the wonderful staff. Jean-Pierre, the ever-efficient general manager, Ryan and Tanya at reception who exude pride in “their” special establishment, Nomu presiding over breakfast with friendliness and aplomb, and Elina and Mandisi who are incomparable hosts at dinner. Not to be forgotten is Monique at the Bliss Spa on the premises. With magical hands Monique gets it just right. We were spoilt rotten for the duration. This time around we stayed in Executive Suite 2 with its own secluded pool and private garden, lounge, and beautiful views. A complimentary bottle of bubbly was delivered in an ice bucket on Saturday afternoon, this, in addition to the fresh strawberries, oranges and apples that greeted us on arrival. A word of warning though, there is also a bowl, I kid you not, a whole bowl, of “Magic Moments”, two small, thin, round shortbread biscuits stuck together with vanilla cream …. Light as a feather, beautifully fresh and crisp. Utterly irresistible! Breakfast is grand. Served in a separate airy dining room near the communal pool with the option of dining outside when the weather permits, fresh and stewed fruit salads, assortments of cereals, yoghurts, cold meats, salmon, cheeses and pastries are complemented with a creative hot menu. The smashed avocado with poached eggs on toast with extra salmon and capered cream cheese is sublime, as are the Eggs Benedict. The croissants are to die for. Dinner is even better. Fresh, local ingredients dominate. The butternut and feta ravioli in a butter sauce, at yet another time of ordering, was, as always, quite magnificent. My wife had Chicken Royale with vegetables for mains. Moist, tender, served on a decadent bed of risotto, just perfect. I had a fillet with an astonishing pepper sauce and vegetables. Supplemented with a little of my wife’s risotto because I forgot to order a starch, my dinner was outstanding. Whether you are looking for a special base from which to explore the many sights or exquisite tranquillity in which to unwind, Rosenhof is where you want to be. Without a doubt one of the finest establishments we have been privileged to enjoy, and there have been many. Hands-down the best in the region.

Klein Karoo’s Finest Country Lodge
My brief was crystal clear: I needed a beautiful, comfortable, cosy but upmarket retreat close to the centre of town where I could relax & regenerate for a week… Rosenhof ticked all the boxes with the addition of a superb spa treatment (excellent therapist) & exceptionally well-trained, friendly staff. This was ‘like the old days’ where five stars meant six rather than three. I have referred Rosenhof to all & sundry & am plotting my return as I write. My private pool suite was a sanctuary in its own right & became my happy place within hours of moving in. Lovely decor, multiple facilities abound & world-class service- down to daily a carwash! Thank you all at Rosenhof for really caring & making every day there an experience. Until soon..
