Thanks to Karen and Mark for a wonderful stay. We only ate dinner there the first night, but Mark knows his stuff. Also great and plentyful breakfast every morning. Very cosy rooms, and a beautiful garden. Great place for birding. Fabulous owners with beautiful guesthouse, going the extra mile! Edel Axelson Norway 03.02.2020

Lovely rustic atmosphere, in which we had a safe and very comfortable stay. I can recommend, without hesitation, Dekotzenhof to anybody who is searching for a home away from home! Elna South Africa April 2019

Ontspanne, rustige nag se rus met heerlike ontbyt; elke oggend ‘n ander gebak uit die oond: Dit was baie spesiaal om my tasse te kon uitpak vir ‘n langnaweek by DeKotzenhof in Wakkerstroom. Ek het so lekker gerus. Die kamer was pragtig, netjies, skoon, gerieflik en goed ingerig. Elke oggend kon ek nie wag om by die ontbyttafel te gaan aansit nie. Mark het ons elke oggend verras met ‘n ander varsgebak uit die oond, en ons kon nie uitgeproe raak aan al die tuisgemaakte konfyte nie. Mark en Karen het uit hul pad uit gegaan om ons tuis en gemaklik temaak. Die gastehuis is eg aan Wakkerstroom, ek kan hul hoogs aanbeveel. John Osborne South Africa May 2018 

Home away from home.: Ek sal enige tyd die akkommodasie
aanbeveel. Die ontvangs was hartlik en geen moeite is ontsien nie. Die etes was uit die boonste rakke. Ek sal vir seker weer teruggaan. Wilmarie South Africa May 2018

Most impressed with the décor, bedding, dinner, breakfast and warm homely welcome. In a word ‘charming’. Thank you for providing a ‘home’ so far from home (Australia) Judy & Brian – the Aussies 06 June 2017

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 and bubble bath. Breakfast was delicious and very well presented. We will definitely be back! Ronel Laubscher South Africa May 2016

“Hospitality personified I have always felt that to judge accommodation effectively, you must look at the details. It is the small touches, the little unsaid luxuries which are added, yet not required, which turn a good hotel into an exceptional one. And so it is with DeKotzenhof guest house. The fine attention to detail combined with one of the friendliest management/ owner teams I have encountered make this my exclusive recommendation if staying in the Wakkerstroom area. The rooms are tastefully decorated in an olde worlde style with all the usual facilities one would expect of a luxury establishment without the exorbitant price tag. Little added touches like complimentary sherry, rusks with your coffee station and a snack basket offered on an honesty system are just a few reasons why this guest houses rises above the competition. The breakfast is country style and is delicious and plentiful. The home made ‘fresh from the oven’ muffins were a treat every morning. The property has a small putt putt course for those so inclined along with a little shop offering home crafted items, both utensils and food. The owners Karen and Mark take pride not only in their guest house but also in the area and are eager to help guests maximize their time with useful tips and hints. They seem to have a genuine interest in the well being of their guests and nothing seems to be too much trouble. I look forward to my next visit. 9/2016 Stephen Cloete, Dbn
