From the beautiful house and rooms that we enjoyed to the excellent location and friendly service from Lisa I can only say positive things about our stay at Onse Rus. Lisa also assisted with a recommendation and reservation at a local restaurant which was excellent.

The guesthouse if well situated in the main street just a few metres from the theatre and other attractions.

We came for the IndieKaroo Film Festival held in Prince Albert. My husband's first trip to the Karoo. He loved the Victorian town with it’s wide open main street. Booked to stay 2 nights at Onse Rus Guest house, a beautiful thatched old Dutch farm house, with wooden floors and quirky door knobs. All rooms face the lush garden at...

Onze Rus, meaning Our Rest is truly a home from home. Besides the relaxed vibe and stylish rooms, décor and history there is the added bonus of an amazing swimming pool and gazebo. The real gem is however the breakfast and the way it is served. Not going to describe it but it makes you feel special and almost important....

Our accommodation was quite basic but absolutely adequate to make us feel comfortable. It is well situated on the main road and easy to get to things on foot. Breakfast deserves a 10 out 10! Our hostess could not have been any kinder or helpful than she was. Loved being woken by the sound of church bells!

As a last minute reservation came in we scrambled to find and book accommodation on an extended Garden route tour at one of the busiest times of the year.

Onse Rus is full of character and a great place to stay. Lisa was the perfect host, catering to our every need and making our stay as comfortable as possible. It helps if you like pets (there were some young ducklings there during our visit), but not essential. Lisa is full of knowledge of the local area and can advise...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
You will immediately feel at home as you slow down to the relaxed pace of country life and take time to experience simple beauty, the attention to detail, the small unexplained things, the dogs the cat the ducks and the horses - the odd shaped rooms - the garden with quirky stone men - the warm and inviting lounge leading onto a large shaded garden with swimming pool, bedrooms with French doors and shutters opening into the garden - the harshness of the Karoo that gives you grace in the evening and gentleness in the morning. Our guest accommodation and facilities are separate from our own, affording our guests a level of privacy not normally associated with a guesthouse. We accept credit cards (Visa and MasterCard only) and guests are most welcome to use the Wi-Fi. ... more   less
