"Non Exclusive"
22 Jun 2016
By Peet, South Africa
"We booked two luxury double rooms since they are listed as sleeping 4 people.It is also the only type of room listed on SafariNow for Rosenhof.We were put up in three outside rooms of whicj only one could sleep four people.That room had cracks in the wall that you could see through and a door so skew that clothing was stuffed in the gaps between the door an the frame to prevent the cold wind from blowing in.The facilities listed included an inside fireplace, but none of the three rooms had a fireplace and only one had coffee facilities. We were initially impressed that Jacobs coffee was offered. Big was our disappointment when we realised that the containers was filled with Ricoffy instead.We asked for breakfast at 08:00 the next morning.The main lodge was locked when we were ready at 08:00. Poppie eventually arrived at 08:20. We then had to wait for the tables to be set and the breakfast to be prepared. While we waited we explored the rest of the main house and realised we were sold short. The rooms inside was of a much higher standard and they were unoccupied!All the rooms had a double bed each, so not sure why only "luxury" family rooms are listed.Even after seeing the inside of the main house I feel the wording of the description on SafariNow is false advertising. Nothing at Rosenhof can be defined as exclusive or luxurious. It mght, at best, be seen as budget accomodation and value for money if you are booked into the main house. The outside rooms are not fit for human habitation, especially not in winter."
"Dance competition accommodation"

By Anci, South Africa
"We were welcomed warmly on a cold rainy day by Alta and Poppie, after which we were welcomed also by the owner Cedric.As artists ourselves, my daughter and I feasted our eyes on the rich heritage of art and old-worldly charm of the sand-stone and mud-brick structure of this lovely venue. We were caught up pleasantly in an era long gone by. Our room was quaint and luxurious and were told breakfast at the early hour we required was no problem.We were welcomed at the owner's restaurant as if we were part of the community and treated to wonderful food and company the night before the competition and was very reluctant to leave the next day.We will most certainly return to the warm hospitality of Rosenhof and the Paul Roux people. Thank you Cedric, Alta, Poppie and all the others involved in our stay, hope to see you again very soon."

"We stayed here for two nights over the Easter weekend while visiting a friend who lives in Paul Roux. Rosenhof is a very rustic tranquil country hotel with antique furniture. Poppy checked us in and kept us informed and made us a lovely breakfast every morning."

"The Rosenhof hotel"
01 Apr 2013
By Chris, South Africa
"WE loved the hotel. It was comfortable, full of character, and quiet, The staff were friendly and helpful. However when we went to the bar at the entrance to Paul Roux which we understand also belongs to, and is run by, the owner of the hotel we were charged R37.00 for one beer and one city. We found this outrageous and were not tempted to eat there."
"Paul Roux - who knew?"

By Heather, South Africa
"A step back in time to old world hospitality in a building that has been lovingly restored and with the most amazing decor. Cedric (the owner) is a collector of note, original art, memorobilia, vintage cars, you name it and this is reflected in the interior design. We relaxed over supper on the cool front stoop and were entertained by his wonderful anecdotes and history of the area. A pity we had only booked in for one night, we will definitely be back!"

"Relaxed and homely"

By Billy, South Africa
"Relaxed, good personal service and not your run of the mill franchise or chain group. The day I left I even found my car had been washed. Big breakfast. A country feel filled with furniture from yesteryear."
"Wonderful find"

"We were truly blown away by the great experience and warm atmosphere of Rosenhof. It was wonderful to see all the "Olde World" bits and pieces that are in Lodge. We had a great meal and a terrific nights accommodation. Will definitely recommend Rosenhof to friends."
