Guest House
Situated within the Western Cape's scenic Franschhoek and Robertson, theLAB Guesthouses combine high-tech automation with much sought after eco-centric living. We are one of the first on the continent, if not the very first, to offer voice-activated automation that operates each room's lights, blinds, shower, music, coffee machine, and much more besides. Our 20 rooms cater perfectly for larger groups.

Powered by Solar Energy, and offering electrical bikes and scooter for hire, we take reducing our footprint very seriously. The experience of staying in one of our properties includes a unique combination of luxurious touches, such as the in-house spa on each property and the on-tap draught beer, wine and other beverages; and other clever environmental considerations, such as the friendly-to-nature soap and shampoo.
At theLAB Robertson unwind at our Cape Dutch style guest house set within the little-known charming, rural area of Klaas Voogds West just off the R60 between Robertson and Ashton under two hours drive from Cape Town. Escape the city and discover our perfectly balanced juxtapositioning of beautiful rural countryside, historic Cape Dutch style buildings, and modern and high-tech theLAB rooms and facilities. Relaxing massages and sauna in our well-known spa, country cuisine in our restaurant, lying back in a pool, jacuzzi, or on our sun deck at sunset soaking up views over a dam with rich birdlife: theLAB Robertson will keep you unwinding and occupied during your stay with us.

Take the convenient Wine Valley Safari hop-on, hop-off bus which has a stop outside our guesthouse or hire one of our electric scooters or bicycles to discover the rest of this charming, laid-back area with its various wine farms and quaint locales offering cheeses, olives, and natural products.
Offer your clients or staff a conference with a difference with our high-tech-facilities-meets-scenic-Klaasvoogds/Robertson-wine-valley!Make use of our 16-seater theHUB conference room where your participants eyes will be torn between the beautiful views outside the room and our high-tech 84 Microsoft Surface HUB.

Put your feet up and receive a treatment or a couples massage in our restful wellness centre with two treatment rooms. This area also includes a jacuzzi, and a steam-room sauna for our clients and guests to relax in...and our couples treatment room includes the ultimate: a fireplace for that cosy romantic winter experience! As part of theLAB suite of guest house eco-centric ethos, we use 'TheraVine' and 'Owls' products in our spas. These are both locally-sourced in the Western Cape and are friendly to nature.

"Rodesndal is perfect for a quiet, restful getaway. We stayed in one of the farm rooms, found it be an extremely relaxing weekend. The rooms are comfortable, the grounds are well kept and the environment was beautiful.We ate at the restaurant each night, and relaxed by the pool during the day, so hardly a need to even explore the towns nearby."

"While the staff was very friendly and the rooms were very comfortable and clean, I am not sure how this establishment received 4 stars.  We had a noisy stand alone fan in our room, and when switching on the ceiling fan, there was even more noise.  The plaster on the wall at the headboard was badly chipped, the floors were slippery with a towel on the floor on each side of the bed, as opposed to a mat.  Overall, the accommodation was average and rather disappointing."

"We enjoyed the views, food and our massages. All amazing, however we were not happy with the steam room which worked the first evening, however to our disappointment, stopped working for the rest of the time. The showers in our rooms had bad pressure and you could not find a happy medium between hot and cold. So either you had to have a freezing cold one or a very hot one. The rooms were in need of maintenance. Other than that we had a great time!"
