About Dennehof Karoo Guesthouse

ABOUT US

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.

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.

Resivior pool

~ 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.

“I like this place and could willingly waste my time in it.” ~ William Shakespeare

Absolutely Stunning

Highly recommend this place. Beautiful, clean, hosts were amazing. Very special place. Unique old farm house that has been maintained. Best breakfast ever. Lots to do and see in Prince Albert or just sit under the trees with a gin and tonic!

Close to the Best View in SA

The stay was excellent and the food top quality. Home away from home. Anyone visiting Prince Albert and Dennehof should take the opportunity to drive the Swartberg Pass. It was so worth it and added the cherry on top of our stay. We will be back doing the pass on our bicycles in 2021.
