We stayed in Room 1 with the high log-beamed ceiling. Comfortable and very clean. Very pleasant surroundings. We only stayed one night but Lisa made us feel welcome and relaxed. Prince Albert is a lovely place to stay and we would definitely return here if possible in future.

I booked this B&B for my husband and a business partner and, if my husband compliments the establishment, then I know I have chosen well. He is a man of few words. It sure holds fast to the previous positive comments from other travellers.

This is an example where the owner wants to make sure that you as a guest has the most comfortable and memorable stay! Lisa went out of her way to ensure that all needs were met, from making bookings at the local restaurants to ensuring that there were enough blankets when the temperatures suddenly dropped. The price included a healthy...

Loved it here. Friendly and welcoming. Tranquil, beautiful cottage, well equiped. Had a lovely time. The owner gave us tipson where to go, booked us dinner that was perfect. We loved the garden and the cottage. Good lighting, lovely coffee. Fabulous breakfast. Would stay here again if we came back to Prince Albert as it was ideal.

We were greeted warmly, shown to our room and served tea and cake by the pool on arrival. The hostess Les is very friendly and chatty. Our room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was a treat, beautifully presented and very tasty and we shared a long table with other guests which was a treat.

We selected Prince Albert because of the high prices found in Oudtshoorn for similar accommodation - and how pleased we were! A place of great character, cleanliness and friendly staff. The breakfast was definitely a highlight. Would stay there again if the need arose.

Prince Albert is a great place to visit and Lisa at Once Rus was a wonderful host for our brief stay. Could have stayed longer. The breakfast was excellent and fresh, served in the garden by the pool with birds in abundance in the trees. Everything is walking distance and we had dinner at the Gallery which was also great...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You will immediately feel at home as you slow down to the relaxed pace of country life and take time to experience simple beauty, the attention to detail, the small unexplained things, the dogs the cat the ducks and the horses - the odd shaped rooms - the garden with quirky stone men - the warm and inviting lounge leading onto a large shaded garden with swimming pool, bedrooms with French doors and shutters opening into the garden - the harshness of the Karoo that gives you grace in the evening and gentleness in the morning. Our guest accommodation and facilities are separate from our own, affording our guests a level of privacy not normally associated with a guesthouse. We accept credit cards (Visa and MasterCard only) and guests are most welcome to use the Wi-Fi. ... more   less
