About Onse Rus Guest House

Nestled at the foot of the majestic Swartberg Mountains is the quiet and serene village of Prince Albert, here, time is suspended in the dry crisp Karoo air. Be captivated by the vast open spaces and a night sky filled with an endless amount of stars.

With its thatch roof and wooden floors, Onse Rus has the character and comfort of an old farmhouse. You will immediately feel at home as you slow down to the relaxed pace of country life and take time to experience simple beauty.

Enjoy the odd shaped rooms and garden with quirky stone men. The warm and inviting lounge leading onto a large shaded garden with swimming pool and bedrooms with french doors and shutters opening onto the garden.


Each of the five air conditioned guest rooms has its own special character with en-suite bathrooms. After breathing the fresh country air, you’ll sleep soundly in the comfortable beds with crisp percale linen.


Breakfast is served in the garden under the trees in summer weather permitting and in winter in the main guest lounge with fire place. The generous Onse Rus farmhouse breakfast is a real treat: homemade muesli, fresh farm dairy products, fruit juice, bacon and eggs with mouth-watering local preserves and just wait until you taste the cream!

We are fully licensed. Dinner is served upon request with a minimum of four guests booking. You might fancy a simple omelette or a three course Karoo dinner. If you prefer to eat out, we can recommend a number of excellent restaurants all within walking distance from the guesthouse.


We serve tea and cake on arrival. In summer you might choose to sit in the gazebo next to the swimming pool or in winter the guest lounge with fireplace which doubles as an art gallery. The inviting sparkling pool provides a sanctuary on hot summer days. The shady garden has braai facilities and a bar. The dining room has a large ceramic fireplace for winter, and our library in the guest lounge offers books to suit every taste.

Warm hospitality in a homely, very comfortable setting with lovely back garden for reading a book or having an afternoon swim. We cancelled our dinner reservation, as we had settled in so well and didn't want to leave!
