Beautiful accommodation and intimate restaurant with good quality and tasteful food. Owners provide a very welcoming atmosphere and caters well for multi-language international guests. What a little gem!

We stopped over at Roosje van de Kaap on our way from Langebaan to Knysna. The receptionist was extremely friendly and helpful. The accommodation was fine, with a lovely stoep, but the bathrooms where extremely small. I was also unable to park my vehicle behind the locked gate.

Charming little cottage with a beautiful garden and extremely nice and helpful staff. The little restaurant has an extremely good kitchen. I had a good time there. if you survive one evening without television, this is the perfect place to enjoy the Dutch charm of this spot.

Amazing Couple who bought the place 6 years ago and rebuilt it perfectly. Amazing breakfast with all you want to have (and even a lot more!!!!). The Honeymoon suite has a terrace with a great view, AC and a very comfortable bed. Very good restaurant just 100m away.

We enjoyed our stay at Roosje van de Kaap. The room is well appointed and furnished. More table/shelve space (for coffee making etc) would be great. There is no TV in the room. The staff are very friendly and well trained. Breakfast was good with both English and Continental catered for.

nice service,clean,beautifull garden and clean swimming pool;breakfast was oke. our overall impression was good. It,s a country style B&B,so the rooms were also designed in a countrystyle way. We like more a modern style,but that,s a personal choice!

Our experience at Roosje van de Kaap during our recent stay was again memorable. Both the owners and staff go out of their way to make your stay comfortable----for us the only place to stay in Swellendam.

Very Nice and Cosy B&B. Situated in upper part of Swellendam close to the Drosde Museum. Apart from the breakfast they provide also excellent meals in the evening. Good golfing facilities are situated in the neighbourhood.

We only stayed one night, but would defiantly recommend Roosje van de Kaap! The Accomodation is perfect and was very clean.
