Excellent accommodation
Carol Clohessy, South Africa - 24 October 2016
We thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent at Rooikat Cottage. The accommodation was attractively decorated with every home comfort and we so enjoyed the view of the mountain and garden together with the covered stoep and braai area. A really beautiful and peaceful place to stay. It was an easy waqlk to the town square where all the galleries, shops and eating places are situated. I have no hesitation in recommending that you stay here. Trudy made us feel very welcome and was extremely helpful with advice and guidance as to what to see and do in the area.

Thank you for a wonderful stay in Clarens! It was our second stay and it was just as enjoyable as the one before. Very nice and spacious cottage, beautiful garden, spotlessly clean and great management. Hard to beat.

Thys Ellis, South Africa - 29 July 2015
The Rooikat Facility is of very high standard. Reception was very friendly and we felt at home from the outset.
The accommodation was very clean and the house was fully equipped.
However, out vehicle was stolen on our first night at Rooikat.A suggestion would be to have additional protection installed to prevent a similar incident. A motion detector that gives audible warning could work.

Perfect place for 2 people
Beyers Stern, South Africa - 22 April 2015
We stayed in the small cottage at Rooikat and it is everything that a couple could ask for. It is clean, quiet and comfortable with a useful kitchenette. It is less than a 3 minute walk to the town square and Trudy is very helpful and accommodating. It is also reasonably priced when compared with other accommodation in the area.
Hoogs Aanbeveel!
JOHAN REINECKE, South Africa - 22 March 2015
Trudy en Tokkie was so vriendelik en ons het sommer dadelik tuis gevoel en heerlik gebly! Die cottage is smaaklik gemeubileer, uiters netjies en skoon. Rooikat Cottage word hoogs aanbeveel! Die Reineckes

We loved Rooikat and in fact stayed an extra night. It was most comfortable and private. We were three adults and the accommodation is really for two adults and perhaps two hildren as the extra's sleep on the couch in the lounge with sleeping bags. I can recommend it highly.

We will be back, and can recommend Rooikat Cottage to anyone and everyone, thanks again!
