                      We were greeted by a very friendly couple.  Immediate laughs all around.  The room was comfortable with all the necessities against the chill in the air.  The room also had other small things that I find speaks of people who pay attention to their guests with books to read, bubble bath and an honesty basket with treats.  Breakfast was delicious and very well presented.  We will definitely be back!

                      Excellent accommodation at a reasonable price. The breakfasts were delicious and the evening meals (prior arrangement) were great. The owners Mark and Karen Kotze were wonderful hosts and very helpful with suggestions for sights to visit in the Wakkerstroom area. There is also ample off-street parking for those travelling by car. I would recommend DeKotzenhof to anyone looking for a comfortable and friendly place to stay.
