    Very good location, room was very spacious and the rooms were laid out nicely around the pool and garden. Breakfast was excellent with the option of indoor or outdoor sitting. Would recommend for anyone in this area.

    Good location. Two good restaurants at walking distance, rest a few minutes by car. Swellendam is a nice place for staying some nights. Beautiful room and great, splendid garden with swimming pool. German owners were very heplful, good service.

    Stopped at the Marula Lodge for a Night between Plettenberg Bay and De Hoop Nature Reserve. The property is quite big, but the rooms are rather small. Breakfast is ok, nothing special and not really modern.

    We stopped in Swellendam en route to Port Elizabeth. We received lovely welcome from the owners. Accommodation was top notch and the breakfast was perfect. Lovely swimming pool and garden. Only downside you are close to the road and the traffic starts early.
