“perfect!”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

rothman manor is the greatest hotel we discovered throughout our two week stay in the cape region. Franziska and Andreas are doing a perfect job to make this wonderful place even greater: very nice garden, large rooms with everything you need (and even more), great breakfast und friendly assistance by finding a good restaurant or planning the onward journey. next time i'll definitely stay here longer.

On arrival the first impression is of an unassuming house in a residential street!
Once you enter impressions change markedly!
Starting with the welcome from a delightful bundle of energy - Franziska - followed by her husband, the very attractive room, opening onto wonderful grounds with a large Koi pond fringed with tall reeds, in which Weaver birds were making their nests, on to the Jacuzzi and then down to the large paddock housing Zebra, Springbok and Guinea Fowl, not the sort of things you find in the average house.
Unfortunately they only cater breakfast to we dined at the Old Mill restaurant just across the road. In English terms this is a rather basic restaurant but the food was very good.
Breakfast at the 'Manor' was excellent with a choice of most things that you'd expect, plus other, local, items!

Words cannot do justice to describe Rothman Manor it is a place of utter beauty. It is managed by the owners Andreas and his wife whose attention to detail ensures that everything is perfect. Our cottage was beautifully furnished and of a good size with a lovely bathroom, no detail was spared there were even candles in the bathroom. The door of the cottage opened directly onto the pool and the delightful gardens. There are even Zebra and Antelope at the bottom of the garden. The delicious breakfasts were served inside or on the patio as chosen by the guest. Rothman Manor is a real find, don't hesitate, stay here!

As a stop off from Cape Town to the Garden Route this was not only an ideal location, but it would be hard to think of anything which could have improved the experience. Every attention to detail is covered in this delightful accommodation. Particularly enjoyed sitting on our veranda watching the weaver birds attending to their nests overhanging the lovely pond.

We love this place... especially the garden: there's a nice lake with red fish, swimming pool and a terrace from where you can see the mountain zebra and antelopes! The african suite is very big and comfortable as the bathroom. The breakfast is served in a cottage near the rooms by Andreas and his wife.

I stayed at about 8 guest houses during my 3 weeks trip to South Africa; the Rothman Manor was the most beautiful of them all. Andre and his wife (the owners) are perfectionists so the place is extremely well maintained and the focus on evvery detail is immediately noticeable. It even has its own game park. The breakfast was excellent too.
