Absolutely loved our stay, it is far better than staying in town. It is virtually next door to Highgate and so quiet and peaceful and the best for families. My kids had an absolute ball at De Denne and did not want to leave. The staff are fantastic and friendly and we really loved Melissa, she is so friendly and gave us so much great advise about where to take the kids.

I had to smile while reading the first sentence of your review, that is what always happen with our guests. As we are not located next to the road and you need to travel on a gravel round I can imagine how you feel wondering where are you going :) We are so excited having you back in November, and thank you for this huge compliment!

Towels were torn, a cat kept coming into the room and defecated. There was no coffee, water or table settings when we arrived for breakfast (in the middle of the given timeframe). Bread had mold on it. The managerial staff were unhelpful and unnecessarily offended by the mention of this.

Dear Guest, To be honest I really don't know how to respond to this wild accusations being made, but to all fairness I am going to reply as follows: The towels were not torn - it was one (1) towel from which the seem at the one end seemed to loosen a bit. The cat you refer to is a strayed animal which accidently ended up at the Guest House, and yes we do have a bit of a challenge on how to handle her, she has been spoiled by some of our guests and turn out to be a very good at catching little veld mice - but never had she defecated in our rooms. She is very fond of people, however we do understand that not everyone is fond of animals. We are in the process to look out for a new home for her though. During breakfast we do have 2 seating areas, one in- side the restaurant and one outside. Tables inside are set but if you would like to sit outside, we do set the table when you are seated. You have chosen the later. The mold on the bread as you mentioned is not possible, we purchase bread every second day and also bake additionally for the breakfast table. Our staff are complimented on their professionalism and friendliness on almost every questionnaire guests completed while checking out. Kindest regards Louise

The staff was very friendly and accommodating. They made our stay very pleasant and relaxing. Beautiful and cosy rooms. Great location. Close to tourist attractions and shopping centre. Massage parlour on the property makes this place a gem! The property is very beautiful and has scenic views. We felt like we had the place all to ourselves, especially the pool area. Overall, a wonderful experience.
