This truly splendid guest house is run by Ria and Lindsey with help from daughter Michele. It’s a one or two minute drive from Prince Albert, a cute town that offers some nice galleries, a few very good restaurants (The Gallery Café is our favorite), and some services. One cannot fail to feel relaxed at Denehof with singing birds, green...

Located just outside Prince Albert. Beautifully decorated with comfortable beds and bathroom. We found it a bit cold in atmosphere and lacking in hospitality. Breakfast was delightful served in the sun house.

Unfortunately we were not able to stay at Dennehof - it is SO popular that people book a year in advance over certain periods - but were able to pop in for breakfast one morning. Not only is the setting Idyllic, but the food and service were out of this world! Hands down the best place to eat in Prince...

Our first time in Prince Albert and we had a very comfortable and homely stay at Dennehof. We would liked to have stayed longer but will have to go back! Lovely tranquil setting, lots of trees with shade, the rooms were very spacious and comfortable and service excellent! Thank you and will be back!
