Review of Rothman Manor
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 04 Feb 2020via mobile
It would be hard to beat the pure beauty and tranquility of this old Dutch Colonial property set in idyllic surroundings. I would give it a six star rating if possible for it is such a wonderful place.
Exquisitely decorated rooms offer real comfort and ambience and a good degree of privacy. Lovely pool to enjoy the wonderful sunshine here.
Breakfast in the garden is a true delight in location and food quality. There is also a lounge to relax with interesting books. A secure and covered parking area and even found my car windows cleaned the next day!
It goes on....... the garden area has a large lily pond, varying areas with seating to enjoy the surroundings and a large paddock with Springbok and Zebra! All flanked by the local mountains!
The challenge is leaving this place as we could have happily stayed much Longer than two nights.

I wanted a special stay over albeit for just one night and boy did I get it. We had the cosy room e.g. smallest but for one night it didn't matter. This place is without doubt the most beautiful guesthouse I have ever stayed in and we will be back next year if we are able to get in. Truly amazing.

525 4 and 5 star TA ratings versus 1 average and 1 poor (Jan 28th 2020)
There's always two aren't there.....however I'm giving it another 5 star rating.

I personally couldn't have created a more lovely, clean, quiet and personable establishment. I did it in Vermont and won awards.....but I've met my match here.

From the fresh daisy on the pillow to little bowls of water with fresh petals dotted around the property, the delightful pool, immaculate but lived in gardens, two friendly zebras and assorted springboks in the field at the rear of the property...what more can one ask for?

The breakfast bacon got 10/10. Home made bread and a decent croissant washed down with a good strong cup of tea sitting in the sunshine on the patio as water burbled from a small fountain....well I was very content.

Great bedding and bed, spotlessly clean room with 21st century European design mixed with SA history and culture. Add personable owners and staff.....result it exceeds ones expectations.

Simply put the place is a winner!

My only suggestion and I'm very biased......a wee doggie toddling around the place and I'd stay for two weeks!

Room tip: Only one room faces the road (I was in it) but it's double glazed and quiet....

My wife and stayed at Rothman Manor along with another couple of the night of January 4th. Only one regret; we were leaving the following day! A delightful place with amazing attention to detail - everything was just as it should be. If you can get in - stay here

Room tip: Below road level no noise noted

We only spent one night here and it simply was not enough time.

We booked a “small cozy” room and were upgraded to the Africa Suit which was spacious and immaculate. Monogrammed while linen, super comfortable king size bed, light blocking curtains, a separate sitting area, and a spotless bathroom with a huge bath and walk in shower.

The gardens are stunning and the pool is skimmed of any stray leaves at least twice a day. There are zebras in the field at the end of the garden.

Breakfast was excellent and by the time we had finished our car had been washed!

Great position a couple of minutes drive into the centre.

Highly recommended.

Reviewed 29 November 2019

We stayed here 2 nights, on our tour of South Africa and found this establishment a delight. Our room was very spacious with a separate sitting area and the bathroom huge. The pool was warm, the gardens a pleasure where on both mornings we had breakfast.
The hosts were so helpful with booking evening meals: there are a few excellent restaurants a short taxi drive away. If you are making a journey on the N2, this small boutique manor is just a very short distance off the main route, and we found the area safe, quaint and quite charming, plus outstanding value. We highly recommend the Rothman Manor.
