“Short, but pleasant stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 August 2014

Stayed here for 1 night after visiting Cathedral Peak and on our way to the Amphitheatre. Good location between these places - however we had to search a little as the address was not clear to our GPS, and we missed a sign along the road as it was already dark when arriving. Room was very comfortable and clean. Large bed and bathtub; nice after a long hike. 3-course dinner was very nice in the small, cosy restaurant. Breakfast was very good as well, as the service/friendliness of staff was too. Certainly would recommend to stay if looking for a place to stay in or near Winterton.

Rose Cottage was a great B&B - the room was clean and spacious.

The host Brian was incredible. The breakfast was great and the honesty bar was a very nice touch. We had supper there on the Saturday night which was great.

Would highly recommend Rose Cottage!

Excellent hospitality, being welcomed as we arrived. The room was so comfortable and incredibly clean. The welcoming carafe of sherry was such a nice idea and so good. The bedding and towels were clean and comfortable too. Highly recommendable.

The service from booking to departing was excellent. The rooms are comfortable and the beds and bedding lovely. To further improve there could be bottled water in die fridge. Breakfast was lovely but if on business it being the only meal until the evening, it would be nice if the warm part was also self help, as an extra slice of bacon or sausage would be nice. Cheese as part of the breakfast with the toast and marmelade will also be nice. I would most certainly recommend, and also stay there again.

What a lovely stay at Rose Cottage, The owners are so welcoming and helpful, the cottage was very well appointed with all amenities and comfort touches. The lovely cosy fire on the coldest night i can recall, was a sheer pleasure. Delicious breakfast, served with great care and attention to detail.We really enjoyed the hospitality we received.. Our only draw back was that it was a bit far from our business appointment. But it did give us the opportunity of exploring new areas that we would have missed had we stayed anywhere else. A real win!

Fanatastic Service, friendly staff, good location and excellent value for money and great breakfast in the morning. I will stay there again and possibly take my kids back with me for a weekend away sometime.

Wonderful reception, we've been treated with even the smallest of wishes we expressed, nothing was a problem. Lovely setting with beautiful trees, special experience driving in with magical fall colour. Blesbok chasing dogs is hilarious.
