From the moment we arrived and received a very friendly welcome from Andreas, we felt relaxed from the start. The hotel has been beautifully designed, room was spotless and stylish and the garden is an oasis. There is also a lovely jacuzzi with views to the mountain beyond, which was a very pleasant spot to enjoy a glass of wine...

We have homes in Cape Town and Knysna. If we have the time, these days we prefer to break the journey between them, and overnight somewhere interesting in the Swellendam to Robertson area. Encouraged by the glowing reviews in Trip Advisor, we had unsuccessfully tried to book at Rothman Manor previously (our travel is usually planned on short notice). Having...

We have just returned from 3 weeks in South Africa and Rothman Manor was the highlight of the trip - its was simply stunning. The location is gorgeous as are the grounds, the pool area and the rooms, well, you want for nothing. Breakfast is superb and you can walk to La Sosta which is a great restaurant. A wonderful...

On arrival, the property looks nice, and as you work you way through to the reception it's full splendour is revealed. The gardens are glorious, the pool clean and blue, and there are antelope and zebra in a paddock at the end of the formal gardens. The decor is stylish and modern and the rooms huge, clean and well equipped....

The garden overlooks a mini-game park belonging to the hotel and contains zebra and antelope. Weaver birds in the garden. The breakfast is excellent and the host Andreas is full of good...

One of the two best B&Bs we stayed at during our 3wk holiday in South Africa and 5 day travel along the wine and garden routes from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth. Classic Dutch mansion style with white-washed walls and thatched roofs, but stylish room with nice accents, air-con, in suite of rooms separate from the main house, surrounding the...

The best place we stayed in during a 10 day trip from Cape Town to Port Elizabeth. Absolutely everything you dream of in one place. Fantastic room (the one always featured in the photos), superb grounds and wonderful service. impossible to say anything negative about this gem.

Andreas welcomed us with open arms and showed us our beautiful and impeccable room (large!). The bathroom was the largest we had on our trip with a large bath tub and great shower. We enjoyed the garden and our own little terrace and ofcourse the breakfast on the patio. Really worth every penny! (note: the South Africa Suite had a...
