          The location is superb. The rooms have a luxurious modern industrial feel with exposed brickwork, aand copper pipes. The room was immaculate and the pool inviting. We appreciated the generously stocked "breakfast fridge"

          Great room - very welcoming staff , good breakfast and wonderful location. The small pool was great to cool off in on hot days. Swellendam had pleasant restaurants and craft shops as well as an interesting small museum. What more could we ask?

          We had a very comfortable stay! The room was beautifully furnished – good size room and excellent bed. We loved the option for a “stocked breakfast fridge” to cater ourselves as well as the “honesty bar”. Well done.
