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 had an old room awaiting renovation. It was crowded and there were no drawers or shelves in the cupboard so we could not unpack. The shower was dark and smelly.But the peace and quiet of a garden room made up for it. Dinner service on our first night was very, very slow though the food was very good. Thereafter...

Roosje van de Kaap was both ideally situated for the delights of Swellendam as well as a totally charming place to stay. We plan to come back next year. Highly recommend it and Swellendam has great places to eat, art galleries and boutiques.

Very neat, clean and private rooms in truly Cape Dutch style unique to Swellendam. Great breakfast choices and walking distance to great restaurants and a museum. Secure and very quiet. Away from traffic and cbd noise. Comfortable stay with 12 rooms/suites and sparkling clean swimming pool. Restaurant open certain nights.

We love escaping to the tranquil and luxurious Roosje van de Kaap. Hosts Freerk and Helpi are friendly, kind and hospitable and very welcoming. The setting is delightful, boasting panoramic views of the Langeberg mountains from the honeymoon suite and many attractions within walking distance, such as the Drostdy Museum complex and restaurants - although you will not need to...

Nice property in the center of town. Nice breakfast and diner restaurant, little pool, nice garden and very quiet. We stayed at the honeymoon suite which did not really feel as a honeymoon suite. But it is a very nice room with a nice bathroom and a private rooftop terrace. Nothing fancy!
