This is a beautifully decorated, relaxed guest house. Lisa has designed the rooms tastefully and clearly has an eye for interior design. The room we stayed in was spacious, very well thought out and had a lot of pleasing natural decor. It was very pleasant to spend time relaxing in the back garden by the swimming pool and eating very...

The stay was absolutely amazing stay and the staff and management are super friendly and most welcoming. The setting is quaint and the breakfast and setting is fantastic. Nothing is too much in the small Karoo town.

Lisa is the perfect hostess: kind and friendly. The room was spacious and comfortable. The breakfast outside in the garden was delicious. The B+B is within walking distance of restaurants and the little town of Prince Albert is charming.

Onse Rus is, quite simply, one of the most enjoyable places in which we've stayed. What makes it special is Lisa's hospitality - Onse Rus is her home and she really does make you feel part of it. We loved breakfast in the garden and just being at ease in the house. We enjoyed everything about our stay here and...

The beds were comfortable with good quality linen and mattress, the rooms spacious and stylish with a lazy couch to relax, the service and breakfasts wonderful. We had only one regret namely that we couldn't stay longer!

I cannot recommend Onse Rus highly enough. Lisa is the perfect hostess...warm, friendly and thoughtful and our rooms were lovely and comfortable. The gardens are full of birds and flowers. The only bad thing was that we had only booked it for one night. Big mistake.

Warm welcome from the moment we stepped in the door from Lisa and her friendly dogs. We were in room 4, which was large and airy, and had an efficient and quiet a/c, making sleeping easier. Rustic decor, but very clean. Breakfast (ample and tasty) taken outside in the charming gardens to the accompaniment of birdsong. Downside was no secure...

Onse Rus Guest House is one of those Karoo gems situated in a Karoo gem of a dorp! A great place to explore the area. The rooms open out on to a lovely quiet garden and pool, with plenty of bird life. The local restaurant that we went to was also very good - traditional Karoo food.

From the beautiful house and rooms that we enjoyed to the excellent location and friendly service from Lisa I can only say positive things about our stay at Onse Rus. Lisa also assisted with a recommendation and reservation at a local restaurant which was excellent.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You will immediately feel at home as you slow down to the relaxed pace of country life and take time to experience simple beauty, the attention to detail, the small unexplained things, the dogs the cat the ducks and the horses - the odd shaped rooms - the garden with quirky stone men - the warm and inviting lounge leading onto a large shaded garden with swimming pool, bedrooms with French doors and shutters opening into the garden - the harshness of the Karoo that gives you grace in the evening and gentleness in the morning. Our guest accommodation and facilities are separate from our own, affording our guests a level of privacy not normally associated with a guesthouse. We accept credit cards (Visa and MasterCard only) and guests are most welcome to use the Wi-Fi. ... more   less
