Yellow House | Prince Albert | Accommodation | Restaurant

Yellow House | Prince Albert offers a memorable farm stay in quaint cottages located on the southern end of the Karoo town of Prince Albert, at the foot of the breath-taking Swartberg Pass.

Visit Yellow House | Prince Albert

 A working almond and citrus farm, this gem is one of the rare “dorpsplase” – a farm with a street address, 1.8km from the centre of town. Most of the buildings on the farm date from around 1885, the same period when Thomas Bain was busy constructing the majestic Swartberg Pass.

We have six artistically restored, self-catering cottages, each with its own stoep and braai. Crisp white linen, great coffee, and home-baked rusks are ready to pamper you; magnificent stargazing, the ever-present mountains, and the peace and quiet will soothe any tired soul. Our spacious wet-room style bathrooms provide a cool respite from the summer heat. Take a stroll through our orchard or enjoy our gardens – some of our cottages are pet friendly. Take your mountain bike right off the stoep and ride 5km until you hit the dreaded Swartberg Pass!

4 of us had dinner on Sunday evening. Simply delicious meal even to the genuine Irish coffee made with proper Jamieson malt whisky. The warmth and friendliness was special and lovely friendly staff. We will be back on our next visit to Prince Albert. Thank you to you all.

A true gem and a real oasis. The rooms are fantastic, clean and very comfortable. The pool in the middle of the orchard is bliss and the stargazing while lying in the hammocks is a must. The on-site restaurant was great too - their pizzas are great, and the lamb shank and gazpacho were delicious too. Note the restaurant is closed on some days (Tuesday&Wednesday when we were there). Everything was perfect!

Fantastic experience What an experience, greeted by the owner on arrival makes you feel welcome. There is good menu with goose variety to choose from. They cater for gluten intolerant diners. Wine offering is good. We had a lite lunch, eating pizza which was great. The gluten free pizza base was amazing. They cater fir inside or out side seating with beautiful scenery.

Ideal Position On Edge Of Town This review is relatively objective being my 17th road trip staying in 18 properties over a 43 night period, I stayed solo for one night in February. Easily found just on the edge of town with plenty of off street parking. It was the owners ‘day off’, so was greeted by the manager, who was efficient and friendly. Lavender Cottage was located slightly away from the main building in the well maintained garden bordering the orchard. Large and perhaps one of the best equipped self catering units I’ve stayed in. Nespresso type coffee machine. Comfortable and clean. The aircon wasn’t needed as surprisingly cool indoors. The in house EAT restaurant was closed, so a reservation was made for me in an excellent restaurant in town. No breakfast provided, but the excellent Lazy Lizard breakfast/lunch spot is just down the road. Decent WiFi. No generator, but standby lights provided. The only niggle was a rooster in the adjacent property that thought it was dawn at 0300 - but hey, this is the countryside. If visiting Prince Albert again I’d probably only stay when the EAT restaurant was open (I knew it was closed before booking)

Drove the Swarberg It would really require some unrealistically excessive expectations to find fault with this venue, which is lovely in every respect. This in house restaurant serves excellent food, and there is a very good wine list.

Relaxing farm stay Perfect spot for a break in the Karoo. Chill farm vibes, comfortable beds and a nice powerful shower. There's even a splash pool down in the orchard with a nice relaxing braai area. If you want to eat at the restaurant, remember to book as they fill up super quickly!

Great Pizza Exceptional quality, great food, fast service and dog friendly! They offer the best, if not the only?, pizza in town and has a great selection of wines as well! Great setting too. The service was great, with the waitress being very attentive - even the owner came out to greet and seat us and checking in during the meal.

Fantastic Customer Service A wonderful stay in an eclectic hotel. Delicious food, great wine and singularly extraordinary levels of customer service from simply every member of staff. It's easy to see why Yellow House is a firm favourite in Prince Albert. Highly recommended.

Great friendly service Really nice evening meal here. They’re open on a Sunday which is great as not many other places in the small town are. Very friendly service. Small but nice food menu. All food cooked well. Looks like a great place to stay - wish we’d staying rather than the place we picked!
