Welcome

Dumelang | Goeiedag | Good day

The hotel in Rosendal (in South Africa’s picturesque eastern Free State) is undergoing an amazing rebirth to become a boutique must-experience establishment.  Not only will the main hotel, restaurant, chapel and conference centre be renovated and re-imagined, but 16 of the hotel rooms are up for sale to interested sectional title-holders. These rooms will also undergo a transformation and their interiors crafted by foremost artists. This website will be updated as each phase is completed and more information becomes available.

But in the meantime, we’re looking for a new name for the hotel – something that speaks to its glorious location in the village and surrounding countryside, and not forgetting its history. Once a cheese factory, it has since been called The Rosendal, Villa Esperansza, The Hound & Rose and The Rose. Please email us with your suggestions and motivations. If we choose your proposal, you will win a weekend for 2 to the hotel for its re-opening party!
