Rondefontein Guest Farm

Rondefontein Guest Farm is a working Merino sheep farm, it has five chalets as well as two-bedroom family chalets. Around the chalets there's a beautiful garden and if you are lucky you'll find a bunny or two hopping around. A swimming pool next to a fully licensed bar and a cozy dinning room with dstv, aircon and a fire place in which you can have a few drinks and a home cooked meal (boerekos) with the tastiest Karroo Lamb and in the morning have a hearty English breakfast before heading out for the day.

On the farm enjoy the beautiful southern Free-state views, take a walk, run, bike ride or do some bird watching. The Free-state sun sets are something to behold as for the nights you've never seen so many stars. For a unique Free-state farm experience join us at Rondefontein Guest Farm.

    16 March 2017

    "We arrived at Rondefontein at about 7pm. Louis and Nicole both came out to meet us and Louis showed us to our unit. We had ordered a braai pack for dinner which was supplied with wood for the fire and braai salt. My brother and I were staying in a family room. The rooms were clean, the beds comfortable and there was a big bathroom. We opted for dinner and breakfast but there is a self catering option. At breakfast the next morning we saw the beautiful gardens and the pool and then after Louis and Nicole introduced us to a few of their farm animals. I will definitely be bringing my step daughter back to stay."

  • "Excellent value for money."

    15 January 2017

    "We stayed at Rondfontein on a return trip from the Cape. The rooms were clean with comfortable beds and pillows and good quality linen. Tea & coffee making facilities are provided and there is a bar fridge in the room. We also booked for the evening meal and breakfast the next morning<br/> The food was delicious, well cooked and of generous portions. Our one night stay for two couples represented excellent value for money. Nicole and Louis go out of their way to welcome you and take care of your needs whilst there. We will definitely stay there again when travelling to and from the Cape. We would recommend a stay at Rondfontein to both South African and overseas visitors. To Nicole and Louis we wish you every success and look forward to seeing you again in the future."

The room is more than adequate. What is important when you are of a certain age, the bathroom is excellent. There is a well-stocked bar. Our dinner started with crispy samoosas followed by bobotie, lamb chop and vegetables. A good homely meal - there was nothing wrong with the breakfast either. It was simple, comfortable and happy experience."

  • "Welcoming stay"

    28 July 2014

    "Rondefontein caters for overnight visitors and as such only the family unit offers true self catering. The family unit is a bit basic. Our hosts offered us two double units in stead and that made a world of difference. The two doubles were both neatly furnished and well equipped (after transporting the microwave from the family unit). We had a great view of the veld towards the N1 and although we were concerned about the noise from the trucks, they really did not bother us. Well recommended as a stopover, but not much more than 1 night."
