I had a friendly welcome from Wilma on arrival, who explained everything I needed to know about the property. The garden room was very comfortable, with the swimming pool conveniently close.

An attractive Dutch Cape style property with large garden, small pool with sun loungers in a quiet location. Wilma and Desmond were the perfect hosts being friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.

Wilma and Desmond made us feel like friends not visitors. We especially liked the beautiful garden. Port and chocolate were a nice surprise before going to bed. Thank you for your hospitality, Wilma and Desmond!

Now that we are in our late 70's we decided to break the journey - and what a pleasure break it became. The town is beautiful and full of interest. De Oude Pastorie was...

Having stayed in Swellendam last year in a wonderful place in the other end of town my wife was disappointed that we weren't there again. Disappointment was soon over come by meeting the relatively new owners Wilma and Des. This lovely Cape Dutch style house has magnificent rooms, aircon, crisp white cotton sheets and we had a delightful veranda to...

An excellent stop on our way from Cape Town to Knysna. Desmond and Wilma have been running this B&B for a few months now and are doing a great job. Would highly recommend this place, especially if you are a foodie.
