2013-06-10 Rating 4/5 : We saw an advert in the Country Life Magazine for a weekend stay at "Dennehof" Bed and Breakfast in Prince Albert. The rate was R1500 per person for 2 nights and it included a trip down to Gamkaskloof in their 4x4 vehicle. As it was a 4-star establishment we thought the offer was quite good. The booking process worked well – we sent an e-mail to the owner and we received a quick response. We paid our 50% deposit into their banking account and the booking was confirmed. Dennehof was very easy to find in Prince Albert and the signage was good. It had a welcoming feel to it when we arrived. Dennehof has given each of their rooms and suites a name and we were allocated The Cottage. The Cottage consists of a bedroom with a double bed, a lounge with a fireplace and TV, a real farm kitchen which was well equipped as well as a large bathroom. Both the room and the lounge lead out onto the main stoep, The Cottage was very comfortable, although for our purposes we probably just required a room and en-suite although I must say the fireplace was very welcome on the cold evenings. On the Friday when we arrived, the electricity was out in Prince Albert, and that evening when we returned to Dennehof after eating out, Ria, the owner, was outside in the cold waiting for us with torch in hand to ensure that we got to our room safely. She also ensured that we had sufficient candles and torches as they were unsure as to when the electricity would again be switched on. The electricity came back on at about 20h20. The next morning we looked forward to the breakfast before departing on our trip down to Gamkaskloof. The breakfast is served on the deck that overlooks the old Kweekvallei. The tables were set with white tablecloths and good cutlery and crockery and there was not a breath of wind. It was a perfect, peaceful, relaxing way to start a day. Baxter, the Boxer, is a friendly dog, although he never intruded, and it added a nice homely feel if you like animals – which we do. Overall we had a really great stay and we would rate Dennehof 4 out of 5. We rated them a 4 because we felt they should have had a generator when the lights went out and I would have liked a shower in our bathroom which some of the other rooms do have.
