The Rosenhof Country House is a charming renovated homestead turned boutique hotel situated on the outskirts of Oudtshoorn, South Africa. The “Ostrich Capital” of South Africa, Oudtshoorn was a boom town when ostrich feathers featured famously in female fashion. Located just inland of the famed “Garden Route”, via spectacular mountain passes, it oozes the charm of a Karoo town of the Victorian and Edwardian eras

Retaining a collection of antique furnishings, Rosenhof’s 12 rooms and 2 executive suites are beautifully maintained to create a level of comfort and authenticity. Individually decorated Victorian styled bedrooms have patios leading onto the courtyard, and to the lovely rose garden from which Rosenhof derived its name. The two Executive Suites are perfectly situated with views of the Swartberg Mountain, their own private lounge with fireplace, and swimming pool.

Enjoy delectable breakfast in the sunny breakfast room and wind down with traditional country cuisine in the evening at Rosenhof’s restaurant, voted one of the top 100 restaurants in South Africa. In pairing with the cordon bleu-inspired meals, the restaurant also offers an extensive wine collection.

Relax at the cosy pub or one of several lounges providing comfort and art from well-known South African artists. A large swimming pool is available on those warmer days, or sip on a refreshment surrounded by beautifully maintained gardens. Rosenhof also has the active facilities in The Wellness Center, where a fully equipped gym, jacuzzi, sauna and beauty clinic are available for your health and invigorating treatments.

Several adventure options are available to explore the neighboring areas of Oudtshoorn. The Cango Caves are an archaological and impressive site just 30km from Rosenhof. Even closer still are the Cango Wildlife Ranch and several Ostrich Show Farms for your wildlife curiosities. If you’re not wandering far, stretch your legs with a round of golf just 5km from Rosenhof and admire the beautiful setting of Oudtshoorn.
