“Memories to last a lifetime”
Reviewed 12 January 2009

We spent a few days here last August towards the end of our holiday in South Africa. We had a fantastic time and in fact the stay was the highlight of our month long trip.
Firstly the accomodation. It is very spacious with every conceivable comfort. It is very nicely furnished and you just feel at home there straight away.
Next the farm. It is beautiful with lovely walks, dams to swim in, just so much outdoor space for our two children to explore. The animals on the farm are charming. The dogs, sheep even donkeys all captured our hearts. Most days are children did not want to leave the farm to go on a day out.
The surrounding area of Oudsthoorn is lovely with so much to do. We visited an animal theme park, ostrich farm and the Cango Caves. All of which were great days out.
The weather was superb. Even though it was Souty African winter the days were warm and sunny.
I've saved the best till last. The hosts Dick and Mary reaaly make your stay. They are the most kind, charming friendly people you could ever meet. Mary laid on a lovely meal for my little boy's birthday and both showed such kindness and patience in letting our children explore their farm. We really do consider them friends just from this brief stay.
Basically, Rolbaken is one of the best places I have ever stayed and we have travelled the world quite extensively. We will be back like a shot next time we are in this part of the world.
An unforgettable experience. The Ribchester Family

Rolbaken is a fantastic guest house, about 20 minuites drive from Oudtshoorn, in the Western Cape of South Africia. Its about 30 minuites drive from George.

This is a real get away from it all location, in an extreemley bueatiful part of the world. The guest house is an upgraded school building, which has been done to a very high quality. If you want to leave the world behind, and unwind - this is the place to do it.

Mary & Dick make you feel welcome, and look after you, when it was time for us to leave, we had a tear in our eye. If we ever goto South Africia again, we will stay here.

Don't expect a 5 start hotel, expect a place that you can feel comfortably at home in, and you will be more than pleasantly supprised at how comfortable you will be.
