“Absolutely okay”
Reviewed 28 January 2013

We stayed one night in this guesthouse. It is a bit off but this makes it special. The guest house is surounded by ostrich farms and really on the farm land. The room itself was very big but also a bit oldfashioned. We had some ants in the room, but that was really the only bad thing. Otherwise the room was clean. We had dinner - ostrich filet, that was okay, the bottle of red wine was really warm. The breakfast the next day offered everything you need. The guest house also has a pool and a cute old dog. The owners are nice and the area safe.

We had a 3nights stay at Oudtshoorn where De Denne is located. The first impression that we had upon entering our cottage was that it looks luxurious, comfortable and very clean. The bed is very comfortable to sleep on and the air conditioning is a bonus especially when the temperatures are soaring high during summer time. We get to view the beautiful stars on our last night there and Johan taught us the various stars and Sirius. Johan is extremely knowledgable, and I bet everyone will agree. The ostrich steak we had at the guesthouse was fabulous. Service from other staff was commendable too. The swimming pool is a bonus where u can have a dip during the hot summer. Overall, wonderful place to stay in and definitely recommended!

When sceptical turns to jaw-drop in 3 minutes, you know you have arrived at De Denne. To strains of "duelling banjos" we left the main road and we just weren't sure we wanted the remoteness. How wrong can you be? We sent the ladies in first and it seems that Rudi and Bruno the dog are slick salesmen, since they convinced us to stay. Wonderful accommodation, super service, excellent food and an astronomy lesson from Rudi, all for a bargain price. Our very own chef, (Rudi), fired up the Braai and we dined on Ostrich (what else!). The dessert was followed by a lesson on the Southern Cross, Scorpio and the Milky Way. And then we were led outside. OMG! I have never seen so many stars with such clarity. This is a must stay location. Rudi is a star in his own constellation

This was my first visit to South Africa with my family. Unfortunately we could stay only for a day at this fantastic guest house. I must say a family home. peaceful environment. You could literally meditate. what a place. the staff so hospitable, lovely food and Louise a great host. We arrived late afternoon and was quickly escorted by Bruno The Dog , my wife loved him and still misses him. My daughter loved the swing and she cant get off from there, she had fun on the open playground right outside our beautiful and spacious cottage. Loved every aspect of this house. will come back. Miss you all!!!

Room Tip: Room no 5 is what we had. fantastic location near the playground. good for kids.

We've been staying at De Denne for years now, both during the Klein Karoo National Arts Festival (KKNK) and to and from the Grahamstown National Arts Festival. Louise, Johan, all the employees and Bruno The Dog always make us feel so welcome and so at home. And De Denne itself is located in beautiful surroundings: the views of the farmlands (like a patchwork quilt) and the blue/purple/pink mountain ranges in the distance are quite breathtaking.

We spent three nights at this comfortable and friendly farm. Louise and Johan are great hosts, ensuring that we were happy and making every effort to accomodate our kids. A tractor ride was arrangd for my son and was one of his holiday highlights. The supper was tremendous, best butternight soup I have ever tasted. Kacky is a little dynamo and was always ensuring we were looked after. I would recommend this to anyone visiting to Oudtshoorn, not too far from town but in the beautiful country with farm setting.
