Travellers' Choice
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 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.

After experiencing Leonard and Neil’s hospitality and the charming Karoo town of Prince Albert we couldn’t help but extend our stay at the beautifully appointed and historic Onse Rus. Centrally located, we chose to take in the town on foot and strolled from restaurant to art gallery, coffee shop and antique store. We returned in the late afternoons to the tranquil courtyard garden at Onse Rus with swimming pool, honesty bar and covered outdoor seating - the perfect spot for pre dinner drinks. As the evenings got cooler we were brought freshly laundered mohair blankets to keep us toasty. Hospitality and attention to detail seems effortless here. Our en suite rooms were spacious, warm and comfortable with living area, kitchenette and doors that open onto the lawned courtyard and pool. All spotlessly clean. A home away from home - just better.

We stayed 2 nights at the centrally located B ń B and found the accommodation to be charming, well equipped and comfortable. Touches of quirky decor scattered around the unit are a nod to a bygone era that make ones stay feel very special. Local artworks adorn the walls. Some of which are for sale. The bedding was wonderfully soft, warm and luxurious. A beautifully kept garden and patio area is a lovely additional space to enjoy. Hosts Leonard and Neil were warm, welcoming and very helpful regarding local places to visit. I highly recommend Onse Rus

If you’re road-tripping through the Karoo, a stop-over in Prince Albert is an absolute must. And when you do, staying at Onse Rus guest house is more than recommended. Located on the main road through town, you can’t miss it and makes it ideal for exploring the town on foot. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very spacious. To escape the heat of the Karoo, Onse Rus boasts a little oasis with a pool which is ideal to relax. Hosts Leonard and Neil are extremely welcoming and happy to help with whatever you may need. They know the town very well and are happy to share their knowledge and insider tips. Last but not least: the breakfast is more than generous and absolutely delicious. What was supposed to be a weekend trip ended up in a 10-day long stay. A true gem (and also dog friendly).
