What a fabulous guest house set up here
Room was very comfortable with all the necessary requirements in place
The surrounding gardens were amazing but we were even more impressed with the sighting of Zebra and Sprinbooks in the next door fields- my wife said "wow" when she saw them
We had a lovely breakfast in part of the garden area and were treated to sightings at a water feeding bottle hung from the tree beside is of many small brightly coloured little birds
The staff were very polite and helpful
Wish we could have spent more time here but our busy schedule meant we had to move on to our next destination
Thank you Rothman House

Wow! Arriving here after a long day travelling was amazing. What a treat. Zebra and springbok in the garden. Lovely breakfast. Luxury room is fab. Staff can't do enough for you. Beautiful setting and a luxurious stay.

This is a very friendly, comfortable and well run place to stay on the 'Garden Route'. It is on the edge of a very pleasant and interesting small town. Although the Manor is on a main (but not very busy) road, the layout of the rooms is such that they all face inwards, overlooking the beautiful gardens and there was no noise - you'd think you were miles from anywhere. The pool area and garden are very relaxing - landscaped with some very nice touches - the pond, the little statues - and the zebras! Although they do not offer an evening meal, there are several restaurants a short (and safe) walk away, which the very helpful and friendly staff will recommend and book for you. Rooms were very comfortable and well appointed, and breakfast was good.

We stayed in the Morning Sky Suite which is very large and comfortable. It has its own terrace (not that we needed that) and is lovely decorated.

The garden is very nice, large and peaceful.

Breakfast is very good and made with love for the little details.

We had dinner at the Koornlands and can highly recommend it...very fresh dishes, perfectly arranged.

A lovely guest house with beautiful suites. We over looked the lily pond and had a private sunbathing area. The pool was a good size and beautifully clean. The gardens were lovely. The breakfast area was good either a terraced area or inside. There was a good choice and all was well presented. The owners were very friendly and made you feel very welcome.
