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 Guest House 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. Over the years it has been skillfully restored and preserved for the enjoyment of future generations.
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. 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. The glass conservatory and shaded wooden decks tucked away within the magnificent gardens are the ideal setting to enjoy meals and drinks, no matter the season.
The ongoing love poured into Dennehof Karoo Guesthouse is obviously tangible. Together with our team we strive to ensure your stay exceeds expectations in every way, and we are confident that your first visit will certainly not be your last.
