About Dennehof Karoo Guesthouse


Our energetic team’s passion is the number one element about us that makes Dennehof Karoo Guesthouse the success it is. Immaculate rooms, manicured gardens, exceptional and friendly service, and delicious meals would not be possible if it weren’t for our dedicated staff.

~ History ~

Dennehof Karoo Guesthouse was originally built as a two-roomed farmhouse to mark the marriage of the granddaughter of Zacharias de Beer who, together with his wife Dina, were the first settlers of Prince Albert on the farm Kweekvallei.

The homestead grew, together with the family, accommodating an inside kitchen, living room and several bedrooms which are all encompassed by the long veranda that lends Dennehof Karoo Guesthouse its aura of stately elegance today.

~ 4 Star Rating ~

Declared a national monument in 1997, Dennehof Karoo Guesthouse was the first guest house in Prince Albert to be accredited by the South African tourism authorities and has since been awarded four stars by the tourism grading council. Skilful restoration over the last few decades has ensured that Dennehof Karoo Guesthouse can still be enjoyed in her full glory by generations to come.

~ Individually Styled ~

There are eight beautiful en suite bedrooms to choose from, all lovingly decorated to conjure up feelings of a bygone era whilst carefully balancing modern day comforts and luxuries.

~ Leisure ~

The old farm reservoir serves as a salt-water pool, replete with a raised deck from which to bask in the warm Karoo sun while taking in the backdrop of the old windmill, olive groves and towering Swartberg mountains.

For cooler winter days, Dennehof Karoo Guesthouse offers a sauna for two, the pool being just a short leap away for those brave enough to face the thrill of the chill.

A Prince Albert Must

Fantastic guest house. Beautiful buildings and well-appointed rooms. Albert & Inga are warm and super friendly hosts. Great breakfasts accompanied by friendly Ridgebacks set against the background of a cacophony of bird calls from the wetland next door. A real gem.

Authentic Luxury in Prince Albert

Just the most fabulous stay. No detail is overlooked, in a combination of luxury and authenticity. You couldn’t ask for nicer or more helpful hosts. Breakfast is served in the most idyllic setting, and the sourdough bread is to die for. Treat yourselves – you won’t regret it!

Wonderful Weekend, Rain and All

Inga and Albert provide an outstanding breakfast and excellent assistance in identifying walks, things to do and places to eat. This, on top of a cosy room with a fireplace, and a sauna, made for a very relaxing and enjoyable 3 days.
