In the outskirts of Prince Albert lays this house. The oldest building in Prince Albert. It has been renovated by the owners and is restored to its former glory. The one thing I have against is that there are ants almost everywhere. Otherwise it is just an old quirky house with some nice people running it. If you stay here...

We loved Dennehof, we stayed in the barn and had a really fabulous time, such a spacious, incredibly well equipped and stylish house that felt like our own African home on the magical Karoo. Can't recommend it highly enough. Ria is a gracious and generous host. Memorable on every way.

We only stayed one night at this guest house but enjoyed every minute. The rooms are beautifully done (we stayed in the Wagon Shed) and the attention to detail is superb - all the decor is absolutely wonderful. Breakfast was absolutely delicious - tables set up alongside the stream, lots of options and wonderfully made. We had arrived a bit...

You come upon Prince Albert after seeming to drive endlessly through the dry, unwelcoming Karoo (as we did) -- and then find this lovely, welcoming place. Everything was tastefully decorated, the rooms spacious and pleasant, the welcome warm. A big surprise was the amazing breakfast, served in the garden. We visited the Dennehof on our way (the long way around)...

This is a fantastic alternative to big impersonal hotels. The place is quaint but with excellent comfort and cleanliness. We had the old dairy, a twin room with really comfy beds, beautiful appointed shower and a lovely stoep for relaxing. The breakfasts are wonderful and are served on a deck with pretty views. It is only a short car journey...

We phoned Dennehof on Friday evening to book a 2 night stay beginning on the 4th February 2017. I spoke to Ria who told me she had a lovely cottage "the Wagon Shed" available and that credit card details etc weren't necessary as she was looking after our booking personally.

Dear "cremdelacrem123", We are dissapointed that you found our guesthouse and myself dissapointing. Clearly we were not destined for each as even our best accommodation was not to your standard. Missing pillows a matter of perception... Best of luck for 2017. Ria & Lindsay
