Rouxwil Country House
Ranked #1 of 11 Caledon B&B and Inns
Reviewed 13 March 2012

This was at least the sixth time that my wife and I have visited Rouxwil Country House and enjoyed the peace and quiet that it has to offer. It is rated as the Best Farm Accommodation in South Africa, which is an award which is definitely deserved. Thys and O'nel have six rooms available, four of which are located in a wonderful area overlooking the surrounding countryside. Both the breakfasts and the evening meals are excellent and on occasions Thys prepares a wonderful braai. The whole atmosphere is very friendly and nothing is too much trouble for them. All being well we will be returning next year.

We have stayed here many times and it is truly a fantastic B & B. O'nel could not have been more helpful to us this year, as unfortunately I wasn't very well and she sorted the Doctor etc for me. I can only say that this is a fantastic place to stay, the atmosphere with everyone joining in at mealtimes. The food is exceptional, you would not get better at a top class Restaurant. The wild animals are in the field just outside your terrace, the views are great, but the most important thing is that Thys and O'nel are wonderful and helpful hosts. The only trouble is that they are usually fully booked, as they are so good to everybody.

Room Tip: Book early as there are only 4 suites looking out across the hills.

Last year we visited this country retreat for the first time following a personal recommendation, and we could hardly wait to think of returning again - 'arrive as guests and leave as friends' is a wonderful phrase and one that is fully borne out. This year we had the warmest welcome on our second visit and were delighted to see that nothing had dimmed the warm, generous and energetic style of the owners (Thys and O'nel). Wonderful breakfasts are followed by fantastic dinners shared with other guests around the farmhouse table. In fact we enjoyed our second visit so much that we are returning again for our third visit at the end of our holiday. We defy anybody not to enjoy themselves here! Although the location is in the heart of the countryside with sweeping rural views, it is very convenient to travel from here to Hermanus, Grayton and the Wine areas of Stellenbosch and Franschhoek - that is if you can drag yourself away ......

Room Tip: Choose any one of the four new rooms, they are all equally delightful.

This was at least our 3rd visit and it was absolutely great again. O'nel and her staff are the best cooks and hubby and I agreed on that despite that we just came from Stellenbosch were we had been to great restaurants. Add the personal attention and you have a perfect stay. You always meet nice people there and Thys' farm tours are always special. Despite the fact that I missed lambing, I could feed the baby eland. What an experience !!! We will be back, what else can I say ?

This was our third visit to Rouxwil and I can honestly say that of all the places we have visited this tops the list. O'nel and Thys are perfect hosts and their attention to detail once again made our stay one of total relaxation. My only reservation is that on our next visit O'Nel's pet eland will be too large to follow her into the kitchen and will be released to join the other elands, springbok, koudu and zebra in the adjoining game paddock. I would visit South Africa just for the pleasure of staying on this wonderful farm.

Tried to stay several times but they have always been booked up! We always book the flights in Feb/March for travel iat Xmas so plenty of time to plan - you would think!
So this time we tried another system - asked O'nel - when can we come? and finally managed to get booked in for the final 3 nights of the 3 week trip to Western Cape!
What an amazing place - but pleased don't tell everybody!
The rooms are amazing, plenty of space. Bathrooms to die for with lots of little luxuries!
Great meals prepared by O'nel!
Thanks for a great 3 night stay.
Great way to end the holiday - already planning a return visit!

Room Tip: I don't think you would be disappointed with any of the rooms here!

I have yet to find another guesthouse that matches the true South African hospitality which I've experienced at Rouxwil Country House. The hosts and owners; O'nel and Thys Roux epitomises South African hospitality. The food prepared by O'nel was simply fantastic and their excellent knowledge of local wines made dining with them an unforgetable experience ! The beautiful farm setting offers picture perfect mountain views. I wish we could have stayed longer.....definately next time !!

Room Tip: All rooms are spaceous and offer fantastic views !
