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.

We were only in Prince Albert for one night, but this B+B was delightful. Lisa is a lovely host with lots of good holiday tips. A delicious breakfast is served at a large table and you chat to other guests. A great stay.

Prince Albert is a little town on the move. Fine galleries, captivating local producers from the dairy with its beautiful cheeses and yoghurt to the fine weaver with extraordinary local mohair. A gin bar and Art Deco Cinema. Onse Rus was the perfect place to stay. Quality comfort

Onse Rus is one of the original homes in the town built in 1842 to the best of our ability we decided not to modernise this beautiful old building but keep the original feeling of a place that opens her arms to welcome people that visit the town thank you for taking the time to review us with kind regards Lisa and Staff
