  In the town of: Prince Albert:

Onse Rus Guesthouse - in the village of Prince Albert

   By Lisa Smith on Tuesday, June 29, 2004 - 11:58 pm: Edit Post

Nestled at the foot of the majestic Swartberg Mountains is the quiet and serene village of Prince Albert. Here time is suspended in the dry crisp Karoo air.

Onse Rus has been at the heart of Prince Albert since 1852 capturing its warm and friendly ambience under its thatched roof. It’s now evolved into a comfortable 3 star guesthouse. You’ll immediately feel at home as you slow down to the relaxed pace of country life and take time to experience the simple beauty. Each of the en suite guest rooms offers their own special character.

Then there is the generous Onse Rus farmhouse breakfast of homemade muffins & muesli, fresh farm dairy, fruit juice, bacon and eggs with mouth watering local preserves. Just wait until you taste the cream!

While hiking, spot Grysbok or Kudu dashing across your path through cool wooded kloofs or Klipspringer and Reebok bounding up the slopes ahead while eagles wheel amongst the towering Swartberg peaks.

Fuel the less energetic soul with an early morning stroll through the veld or visit our horses, Max, Toffee, Bonnie and Kate. Or discover the town or simply put your feet up and relax around the swimming pool where light lunches and drinks are served, in Winter sit by the fire with a good book and a glass of local wine. Simple, home cooked evening meals are also served by arrangement.

We can arrange a multitude of things to do from a full moon dinner in the veld to horseback riding and evening drives to experience the Night sky in Prince Albert, which will show you more stars than you’ve ever seen.

Arrange your visit to the area whether you’re simply a casual visitor or on a mission to shoot an ad, explore the Swartberg or discover where Great Grandpa used to farm.

We’ll make your visit to Prince Albert a memorable one. Allow us to book your evening meals at an appropriate restaurant. Arrange an evening of Ghost stories and a tour of the village with our local storyteller, An Olive farm visit, Cultural tours and visits to fossil sites. Trips to Gamkaskloof –the Swartberg Loop and a Flower farm in Meiringspoort can all be arranged for you.
