          Braeside is a beautiful place, with a lovely garden. very nice interiors, with amazing african masks. Our room was big and the beds sleep well. Alain was a very friendly host. we certainly recommend this place.

          A wonderful place to stay in Swellendam. Alain was a perfect host and the inn was comfortable and cozy. He provides a marvelous breakfast and recommended the nearby De Vagebond restaurant for dinner, which was excellent. A short stay, but memorable.
