Well on its way to a double century, Dennehof Karoo Guest House is the oldest surviving building in Prince Albert. Built in 1835 on part of the fertile Kweekvallei farm for old Zacharias de Beer`s granddaughter on the occasion of her marriage, this sturdy two-roomed farmhouse (as it was then) conformed to a style popular in this part of the country in those early pioneering days.

In its original guise it had a thatch roof and whitewashed walls and the exposed timbers were painted green. Dennehof consists of several buildings that once constituted the original farmstead.

Each room is uniquely designed and decorated to provide you with luxury, whilst experiencing the grandeur of Karoo-living.
