"Catering to mature travellers, this luxury country house perfectly combines high-end service and warm local hospitality. A great spot to sample local Cape cuisine as showcased in the restaurant."


This country lodge is perfect for a one-night stay in Oudtshoorn, but the obvious downside is that it is right on the road – although the noises of the road do fade as you enter the beautiful gardens.


Rosenhof is on the outskirts of Oudtshoorn, on the way to the ostrich farms and the Cango Caves.


This 5-star property has 12 rooms and two suites. For extra privacy, the two suites are located 100 metres from the main lodge and have their own private swimming pools and a patio. All the rooms are spacious, with en-suite bathrooms. The décor at Rosenhof has the feel of a country lodge, with antique furniture for an authentic style.

Breakfasts are served in the breakfast room, which has a view of the manicured lawns. Evening meals at Rosenhof focus on traditional country cuisine, with a touch of cordon bleu.


  • The cosy bar area has a fireplace for keeping guests cosy in winter and lounges for relaxing together.
  • The large pool area has sun loungers and umbrellas to keep guests cool in the hot summer months. The small wellness centre has a sauna, Jacuzzi, gym and beauty clinic, should you want some pampering.
  • The Cango Caves and the ostrich farms in Oudtshoorn are an easy drive from Rosenhof, making this a great place to stop over on the Garden Route. If you have a little longer to stay, other activities include a unique meerkat tour with habituated meerkats, hot air balloon trips, museums – or for a bit of adventure, you can go quad biking or abseiling in the Swartberg Mountains.
