The owners have gone out if their way in every aspect of this property. The effort gone into ensuring that guests every need is there to be sampled and enjoyed. Maybe adding the choice of low fat milk would have ticked every box. Breakfast choices were there to please everyone.

What can I say about this wonderful place that will keep it exclusively for myself and close friends only! From the moment we arrived here it oozed tranquility, friendly courteous staff, fabulously appointed accommodation, fantastic surroundings and for us to see, for the first time, Springboks and Zebra so close at some point that you may have been able to...

Rothman Manor is undoubtedly one of the best hotels we've ever stayed in. The rooms are very spacious and really well equipped. The gardens are second to none, with a great pool, lots of beds scattered round for privacy if that's what you want. Right down at bottom of the garden are zebras and springboks!!! Andreas and his wife and...

Having stayed in Rothman Manor in February of 2016, we felt compelled to experience the delights of this lovely Cape Dutch delight again during our December trip. This time we stayed in the Africa Suite, which proved an excellent choice. The weather smiled on us, the breakfasts, taken outside under the spreading Oak, proving every bit as delicious as memory...

We had a beautiful room, spacious and comfortable with a view over the pond. There are so many glorious birds to see, also zebras and antelope can be seen in adjoining land. The hosts are friendly and efficient, the property and grounds are immaculate. A range of products have been developed by the owners and whilst I don't normally do...

This was our second visit to South Africa and again we chose to end our holiday at Rothman Manor. The accommodation is simply amazing. Clean, spacious, luxurious, peaceful and welcoming. The owners have an amazing property but are in no way pretentious. They are friendly without being intrusive. They genuinely care for their guests, taking time to ensure all is...

Stayed here for one night but wish it had been more. This is an excellent property and I couldn't fault it. I absolutely loved it from the warmest of welcomes to the departure. The room was modern and the bathroom was stunning. Amenities were first class as was the breakfast. I had a comprehensive introduction and liked the fact that...

We stopped in on the way back to Cape Town for one night. Everything was perfect. Great room, great breakfast, very attentive staff. Would highly recommend. We also played 9 holes at the local golf club which was a beautiful little course and worth a look.

We wanted to experience a bit of luxury before setting off on the whale trail, and stayed here for 2 nights. What a fantastic place! Our room was beautiful, with a small private terrace overlooking the pond which was teeming with bird life. The gardens are exquisite, there is a lovely swimming pool, and a jacuzzi if you're so inclined....
