Beautifully restored country house and gardens. Peaceful, welcoming and comfortable with great food - all only a short walk down a quite country lane to the pretty village. Excellent value and we are looking forward to our next visit.

We stayed there about 3 years ago. Beautiful stone buildings with lots of little courtyards & beautiful grounds. Peaceful & quiet with beautiful, most comfortable rooms with the very best linens. The dinner was superb and breakfast just as good, you have to see the spread to believe it. If you cannot stay then at least go for a meal....

Great place to relax, rooms are quaint and cosy.The food at Rolfs is excellent and service is spot on. You can tell that the owner is passiontate about good/local ingredients. Baltimore is a lovely place to escape, have a few beers and relax. Really enjoyed my stay here and can't wait to go back.

Rolfs is a great little spot! Just out of town, nestled up the back of a quiet little country road. Food and wine was fabulous, as was the service. Rooms were nice and clean. Beautiful white bed linen. All in all a great stay. Would visit again in a heartbeat! No where but Rolfs in Baltimore!

This is a very pleasant place to stay for a weekend. The location seems to be further from Baltimore than it actually is (it's about half a km from the village, up a quiet country road). The accommodation is clean, if a little basic, with a good en suite and an excellent shower. Breakfast was very nice, with a good...

We had a wonderful stay in Rolfs Guesthouse in July this year. The only downside was the weather. We just missed 6 weeks of beautiful weather which was a little unfortunate. Rolfs Guesthouse was a lovely place to stay. The location is beautiful, even through th raindrops. We only had breakfast so can't comment on dinner. The breakfast itself was...

My wife, 2-year old daughter and parents-in-law loved staying here. Our hosts were very welcoming. The place has modern amenities, is well kept, clean and very comfortable. Breakfast was generous and quite filling. We would definitely come back here when in Baltimore!

I spent last weekend in Rolfs celebrating my Mum and Dad's 40th Wedding Anniversary with a group of extended family. I was so impressed, the location was beautiful, the food was excellent and the team in Rolfs really made our celebration really special. The restaurant has a lovely relaxed feeling, and the accomodation, while basic, is very comfortable. A wonderful...
