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.


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 Room
The name describes the room. This is a spacious room with two twin beds, en-suite bathroom and a patio overlooking the mountain and flowering garden.


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.


We offer guests an array of special services, from laundry to bike hire or one-on-one advice from our very own SA accredited tour guide. And now we’re also able to offer pedicures & manicures within the privacy of your own room! We pride ourselves in our customer service so if you have any queries, or if there is anything we can do to make your stay with us more pleasurable, please do not hesitate to ask us and we shall do our very best to satisfy your request.

What a stunning place, set in beautiful surroundings, the room was fantastic with lots of attention to detail. Ria was absolutely awesome & the breakfast was out of this world. We will definitely be back to visit.

Verified reviewexcellent

After an adventurous trip over the Swartberg Pass in our tiny Ford the Dennehof was an oasis of hospitality. The "Wagon Shed" room was charming and cozy with lots of atmosphere. They suggested dinner at the Gallery restaurant which turned out to be just as marvelous.
