We had booked the hotel many months before as a stop-over on our journey from Knysna to Franschhoek which didn't really do this hotel justice. One night in such a lovely hotel was not enough. Our suite was lovely and just a little bit quirky - see the pictures. The gardens were beautiful with the pond, full of lilies, the...

Had prebooked taking the chance, given that The Schoone Ort was fully booked by the time and did not regiert our decision a single moment. When we arrived early afternoon, morning view suite was already waiting for us and Chanel gave us a warm reception and showed us around. The suite is one of three in the most modern building,...

We had 2 nights in the loft suite which was amazing and so clean. The gardens too were immaculate. The owners were lovely and so helpful. We just chilled out on the second day and visited a museum in Swellendam which is a lovely little peaceful town. There are several restaurants within walking distance (one next door and across the...

Excellent accommodation within very beautiful gardens. Welcoming and informative hosts. Wide breakfast choice which was delicious and served in the stunning gardens. We enjoyed our walk in the garden with its many interesting nooks and crannies, especially the resident zebras and springbok. We were only sorry our stay was so short.

Our fourth visit to this charming guest house located a few minutes off the N2. It make an ideal place to break the journey along the route from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town.

Absolutely gorgeous guest house. The staff is so very welcoming and friendly, the whole property is stunningly beautiful and our room was almost too spacious for just one night's stay. The pool area was our favorite spot and breakfast next morning was delicious! The XL Suite provides you with everything you could possibly ask for and after our time here...

This is a very friendly, comfortable and well run place to stay on the 'Garden Route'. It is on the edge of a very pleasant and interesting small town. Although the Manor is on a main (but not very busy) road, the layout of the rooms is such that they all face inwards, overlooking the beautiful gardens and there was...
