My wife and I struggled to find a place to stay in Swellendam on a recent Garden Route tour of South Africa, so we were very pleased to find one room available at De Kloof. Excellent service all around, this staff really cares. Nice tough to have guest cars cleaned in the early morning! Nice breakfast and one of the...

We stayed here on the way back from Plettenberg. Beautiful property. We had a suite with a huge bathroom and a waterbed. i wasn't sure what I'd think of the waterbed but it was surprisingly comfortable. Lovely breakfast was served on the terrace. The property has a lovely pool and has a spa treatment room.

Very comfortable and spacious room. Good breakfast-perfect for a one night stopover before heading for the Garden Route. We didn't have much time in Swellendam itself which seemed quiet but we may have missed something.

Weary travellers happened upon De Kloof on road trip... Solo mum with teens. We had a spacious villa with an "oh my god, slept so so soundly" water bed. Awesome large grounds with even roaming geese to round off the view. Great pool area... Mumma particularly enjoyed escaping to main lounge to emerse in library of coffee table books, cocktails...

During our trip in december we spend two times two nights at this Luxury Estate (totally 4 nights). It is a beautiful place where you can relax and where you can experience the South African hospitality. The hospitality and the service are very good, the rooms are excellent (jacuzzi, waterbed, nespresso) and every morning the day started with a washed...

De Kloof is not a hotel, but a 'Luxury estate' and to remind you they have spelled that out and printed everywhere you look. Even on the glass door in the shower, so don't you dare to forget it! It is a pleasant, beautiful place. Good for a (short) stay in Swellendam. The old buildings are nicely restored and situated...
