We thoroughly enjoyed our two nights here, great cape cottages. Staff friendly, yummy breakfasts, good value! We loved that we could walk to the restaurants nearby. Pool smaller than it looks in the pics, but perfect for a dip none the less.

The price is a bit high and could reduce by approximately 20% to compete with similar accommodation. Will definitely return to the same establishment on next trip, providing i can...

We stayed in swallows nest for 3 nights. The overall treatment by the staff was bad, minor things like broken glass and extra wifi were charged extra money. Breakfast was dull and very cheap.. I wouldn't come back.
