Rose Cottage is an AA Recommended accommodation. It is a luxury self-catering or B&B guest house complex situated halfway between Johannesburg and Cape Town. It has easy access to the N1 highway, only five minutes away.
It is an ideal pit stop for the weary guest simply wanting to break their journey to have a single night sleepover, or for the guest wanting to spend some extra days enjoying what the beautiful Gariep Dam village and surrounding area has to offer. Experience luxury accommodation at a very reasonable price. Soak up the crispy Karoo air, look up at night sky and see billions of stars, identify the Milky Way, and watch the satellites pass overhead - food for your soul.
Rose Cottage is mostly acknowledged as one of the premier self-catering establishment in the area with some guests giving the cottage a 4 Star rating and other guests claiming it’s the best value for money guest house in South Africa. Gariep Dam was voted Tourist Town of the Year in 2010 and is an absolutely crime-free area.
Enjoy superb water sports, yachting and fishing, and game reserves at South Africa's number one microlite and gyro paradise. Gariep Dam has supermarkets, restaurants and pubs and cute home-style cafés. The Gariep Dam is just 20 km from Colesberg and is South Africa's largest dam, appropriately renamed Lake Gariep; truly the heart of the country.
