Absolutely wonderful place. Hospitality and food amazing. Very tastefully decorated and spacious. The owners are the kindest and most uncomplicated people who will go out of their way to make a guest feel comfortable. And this we certainly did! Will definitely be back. Hopefully sooner than later.

Not only we had a great sleep in a beautiful and stylish cottage, Elmaré is a brilliant cook. She served us a 3-course dinner which was so tasty and fresh, better than most restaurants. I highly recommend Rietfontein Ostrich Palace for 1 or 2 nights as you can also go for a hike or a bicycle ride near their property and enjoy a nice picnic with a view of the mountains!

We had 2 phantastic days in the old ostrich palace. Our hosts Elmaré and Kobus are the best hosts we have experienced in 3 weeks, absolutely welcoming and super friendly. We couldn't have expected more. Rietfontein has been recommended to me by friends, and I can tell it was a great recommendation!

I can only repeat what other guests have already correctly said: The delicious meals Elmaré prepares, the beautiful rooms, the warmth of the hosts are the reasons we so much enjoyed our stay. The attention to each lovely detail in the rooms make you feel really taken care of. Not to forget the yummy breakfast, a great start into a wonderful day. Thank you very much Elmaré and Kobus

At the Rietfontein Ostrich Palace we were welcomed very warmly.The rooms were spacios and very comfortable, and were nicely decorated. The swimmingpool has a decent size and perfect warm water. There are comfortable chairs and sunbeds for a perfect time to Relax. The 4course dinner was excellent as well as the breakfast the next morning.

Lovely lonely old ostrich farm surrounded by nature and silence. Excellent service and food, owners very friendly. Only disappointing experience the 'Ostrich Tour' with just a couple of birds in a fence behind home for which we have been charged 200ZAR each. Otherwise everything ok!
