We never got to meet the owners and therefore found our stay impersonal. The staff saw us in, showed us to the accommodation, attended to us at breakfast and even booked us out. We would have liked to have met the owners as we found the dinner very interesting but never had the opportunity. The staff was courteous and pleasant.

Beautiful location quiet setting. Set at base of Mountain range. Inn keepers are very gracious and hospitable. They are also the chefs! Free breakfast was a full meal with a variety of options. Dinner was a truly enjoyable experience. We were in walking distance off many shops and historical sites. Hiking trails are quick drive away. Other sites are a...

We stayed in the Honeymoon room , very spacious and confortable. It also has a terrace from which the view over the mountains is stunning! Our teenage daughter stayed in a room giving on to the garden, smaller but perfect for her to feel independent. We received a very warm welcome from our hosts, and enjoyed the food.

We stopped over at Roosje van de Kaap on our way from Langebaan to Knysna. The receptionist was extremely friendly and helpful. The accommodation was fine, with a lovely stoep, but the bathrooms where extremely small. I was also unable to park my vehicle behind the locked gate.

Charming little cottage with a beautiful garden and extremely nice and helpful staff. The little restaurant has an extremely good kitchen. I had a good time there. if you survive one evening without television, this is the perfect place to enjoy the Dutch charm of this spot.
