About Dennehof Guest House

Experience the grandeur of South Africa's unexplored spaces from Prince Albert's oldest homestead, a serene & comfortable base at the foot of the Swartberg Pass. Well on its way to a double century, Dennehof Karoo Guest House is the oldest surviving building in Prince Albert.

Built in 1835 on part of the fertile Kweekvallei farm for old Zacharias de Beer's granddaughter on the occasion of her marriage, this sturdy two-roomed farmhouse (as it was then) conformed to a style popular in this part of the country in those early pioneering days. In its original guise it had a thatch roof and whitewashed walls and the exposed timbers were painted green.

Accommodation

Dennehof consists of several buildings that once constituted the original farmstead. Each room is uniquely designed and decorated to provide you with luxury, whilst experiencing the grandeur of Karoo-living. Each of our rooms has their own character and is infused with great personality.

Room Descriptions

The Patio Room
The Patio Room has a classical Victorian feel to it, with an old wrought iron double bed and en-suite bathroom where an old Victorian tub forms the central feature of the fully equipped bathroom.

The Cottage
The Cottage is one of our most loved rooms. It consists of a bedroom with two twin beds, a small elegant lounge with an enormous fireplace, a quaint little kitchen as well as a large bathroom. Both the room and the lounge walks out onto the main stoep, where one can sit gaze at the mighty Swartberg Mountain. This room offers all the comfort you’ll find in a home, from a colour television, to a microwave and gas stove. The unit can also be utilised as a family room as it leads onto the Dairy.

The Dairy
The Dairy, with its high reed ceilings and poplar wood beams, consists of two twin beds and has its own private en-suite bathroom equipped with a shower. The room walks out onto a private patio, that is lovely for sun-bathing during the winter months or simply relaxing in the cool shade provided by a pepper tree.

The Wagon Shed
The Wagon Shed is definitely one of our most special and sought after honeymoon suites. The room has a double bed, en-suite bathroom, small kitchenette and lounge with colour television. This room has its own private patio, where you can sit, relax and gaze at the stars.

The Forge
The very historic outbuilding - The Forge – was once a place of hard work, but now consists of a double bed, en-suite bathroom and colour television. Loved by our regular guests, this room offers all the simplistic necessities, whilst emphasising Karoo-relaxation.

The Windmill Rooms
The Windmill Rooms. The name describes the rooms, Two separate rooms built around the old farm windmill. The one room – The Windmill Room – is a spacious room with two twin beds, en-suite bathroom and a patio overlooking the mountain and flowering garden. The Windmill Suite is our second honeymoon suite. This spacious room has a double bed, en-suite bathroom a small kitchenette.

Meals

In the mornings, breakfast is served on the deck that overlooks the old Kweekvallei where Gay’s Guernsey cows and Angora goats are grazing in the lush green fields. The landscaped garden creates a soft, serene backdrop where songbirds meet and the sound of the lei water runs beneath the deck.

As for dinner, we are able to make reservations at local restaurants that offer superb Karoo cuisine and only by special arrangements can dinners be arranged for at the Guest House.
