“Amazing!”
Reviewed 11 May 2012

We only stayed here one night, which was not enough. The owners were so nice and helpful but gave us our space as well, and O'nel is such a great cook that she made one of the best meals we had while in the country. Our room was big and comfortable, with a king bed and a very large bathroom. The rooms are separate from the main house, and we happened to be the only guests that night because it was off season, so we had the whole place to ourselves to enjoy sundowners outside overlooking the beautiful hills at sunset. Bottom line: a great place to relax, outstanding service, and a highlight on our trip. All the good reviews were right, this is the best place to stay in the whole area. Thanks O'nel and Thys!

Beautiful farm, beautiful landscape, beautiful country home. But more than that, our hosts Thys and O'nel were very warm, welcoming, entertaining, funny,....!!! The delicious home-cooked dinner/barbecue, with all the guests gathered around the long table, sharing the meal and sharing stories, was really something. I LOVE THIS PLACE!

We met another English couple last year who suggested we should stay at Rouxwil Country House, so we booked a two night stay. We were not disappointed, the rooms are very well equipped and large with great views. It was very enjoyable being in a very peaceful area for a change, with views of the animals from our room. O'Nel and Thys are very good hosts who make you feel like old friends. The dinners are really good, and the idea of everyone eating together makes for a really great evening with much laughter and good conversation.

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 ?
