Setting off from Joburg at 5am and Just as your flask of coffee finishes you'll find the little village of Dullstroom. Quaint although expanding at a huge rate. Rose Cottage has been there for ages and provides one with a lovely breakfast and refreshing cup of tea. Good service and a friendly smile go a long way to making this... More

Unfortunately we were met by slow service and cold, very mediocre food. The waitrons stood around chatting and neglected to help us initially and then to clear our table and the food itself was quite... More

Thanks we had lunch here,the service was good. The food was tasty and good. The best is there foods they sell from their kitchen to the public next door. The milktart is wonderful and their home made bread and pies are to die for. Thanks

I think we might have caught them on a bad day (being a very busy Easter Monday) but we waited 50 minutes for our food which was fairly average and we left hungry.

Called here on my way to Kruger Park from J'burg and was well looked after by the very attentive staff. Noted that there was an even mix of locals and visitors - always a good sign as far as I'm concerned, Enjoyed my lunch and would call again should the need arise in the future. Reasonable cost for the meal.... More

Dullstroom is a touristy town, and the Rose Cottage fills the bill. It makes a great stopping off spot on the way to or from the low veld. The roses surrounding the building lens loads of atmosphere. We had an excellent lunch, and the fresh trout was really good. Service was a bit rushed, but then it was a busy... More

A wide variety of home-made confectionery and meals that focus on locally sourced ingredients. The meals we enjoyed were freshly made and the service good.
