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!

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!

Super Friendly welcome from Petro and Joubert for a 2 night stay . Beautiful venue with 5 Star rooms and a feeling of peace and relaxation.

We had two wonderful dining experiences at Yellowhouse Restaurant, a charming place in Prince Albert. The service was friendly and attentive, and the food was delicious and satisfying. For lunch, we enjoyed pizzas with a crispy thin crust and generous toppings. It was delicious, and we loved the homemade tomato sauce. For dinner, we were treated to a feast of mouthwatering dishes. The cheddar soufflé was light and fluffy, with a rich and creamy cheese flavour served with a delicious kumquat preserve. The ostrich bobotie spring rolls were a creative and tasty twist on this traditional South African dish, with a crispy pastry and a spicy filling. The lamb shank was the highlight of the meal, tender and succulent, falling off the bone and served with a red wine sauce that was divine. The portions were generous and the presentation was beautiful. Fabulous selection of amazing South African wines - such a great wine list The hosts, Petro and Joubert, were wonderful and charming, making us feel welcome and comfortable. They also have a beautiful outside space with a view of the mountains and a dam, where we enjoyed lunch and on our second visit watched the sunset. I highly recommend Yellowhouse Restaurant it is a gem of a restaurant that offers quality food, service and atmosphere. I can't wait to go back and try more of their dishes.

YELLOW HOUSE has it all, Petro and Joubert have curated the most idyllic setting, relaxed farm style living for both day guests and overnighters. The restaurant is a maze of separate dining rooms decorated with tasteful trinkets, treasurea and antique furniture. A Farm to table menu with unique flavours and simple yet wholesome ingredients. A warm welcoming energy and attention to detail. Yellow house is a home for all who travel to Prince Albert.

What a treat staying at the Yellow House. Dog friendly, perfectly located at the edge of the village. Hosts, Petro and Joubert are absolutely wonderful and welcoming. The restaurant is closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. However, braai facilities are available or just book one of the many restaurants in the village.

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.

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!

Don’t pass this great place by. Dinner was amazing We didn’t stay at the property but went for our evening meal. We were welcomed warmly the food was absolutely delicious. It’s a busy restaurant so booking advisable. We had a fantastic meal which wasn’t expensive.
