The Rosenhof House is on the outskirts of Oudtshoorn. Located on beautiful grounds, the rooms are well appointed in a more traditional manner. The restaurant is very good serving ostrich fillets and lamb. By the way, Oudtshoorn is the ostrich capital of the world. Each room has a pool, car port and large rooms with a fireplace. The staff is very professional and friendly.
