We only stayed one night at Roosje on our trip from Plettenberg Bay to Cape Town to split the long journey. If we had planned this earlier we would have stayed longer - for sure! What a wonderful place in the charming town of Swellendam!

This boutique hotel is totally beautiful in every way. The rooms were all so tasteful and individually located within the garden. We had dinner in their restaurant and the food was simply excellent. The owner Helpi is really warm and professional. This place is perfect for people who want to enjoy a tranquil or romantic get-away. It is very special...
