Regularly stop here on the way up or back from Hoedspruit. Service has always been great and food good. The menu is extensive enough to cater for most tastes. The next stop has a good selection of food to take on the road as well.

We had lunch here on a Friday afternoon. The place is spacious and clean. Food is average but nice. There is a nice atmosphere here. Lots of patrons, specifically foreign visitors.

Whilst in Dullstroom for 3 days we tried most every restaurant for either breakfast, lunch or dinner and although The Rose Cottage was OK, there was nothing special about the food or the service - does no one in South Africa smile and make tourists...More

My wife and I have traveled extensively around the world and we have yet to find a salad lunch to beat the Rose Cottage's trout salad. Crisp lettuce, cucumber discs, quartered tomatoes, fine Y sliced carrots, feta, boiled egg quarters and a very generous helping...More

As far I know they are not open at night. I do know that they sometimes host special events so you need to get hold of the owner. After my initial review the owner replied to thank me, so I do hope she is also reading this... More
