This restored Cape-Dutch building has several elegantly furnished and air-conditioned rooms with free wireless internet available.

Relax in the lounge, with its cozy fire place and big range of interesting books, or outside on the patio. A healthy and hearty breakfast is served in the dining room.

The original building of Albarosa Guest House dates back to 1946, and was owned by Prof. Gerrit Kruger, a lecturer in Theology at Stellenbosch University. In 2007 it was purchased by the current owners to convert into what is now Albarosa Guesthouse. The house was home to a vast collection of books, which inspired the names of the various rooms.
