Excellent venue which offers good value for money. Really peaceful and very quiet. Plenty of bird life in garden.Rooms furnished in good taste. The service is superb and the place is spotlessly clean. Great breakfast included. Centrally located in terms of tourist attractions.

Absolutely lovely, charming guest house. Beautiful old property, with very interesting rooms. Great facilities - including a pool that we didn't use, and beautiful garden. Our host, Etienne, was very welcoming and helpful with tips for our onward journey, and eating out (he recommended the restaurant next door, and booked us a table there - it was excellent too). We...

We stayed for two nights in this warm and quiet cottage. We slept very well and enjoyed the delicious breakfast on the terrace, served by Etienne. For the dinner, he was kind enough to book for us in the restaurants nearby so that we could enjoy all the day in the The Hoop National Park.

Swellendam is one of the 3 oldest settlements in South Africa and is full of delightful, "boutique" period hotels, guest houses, and self catering units to choose from.

Etienne, Vera and their son took wonderful care of us. Etienne helped us with every question, travel plans, Sightseeing and the breakfast was just perfect and delicious!! Rooms are lovely decorated in the beautiful nice old building. Swellendam is a wonderful relaxed place and our stay here was one of the best of our SA Trip. Absolut empfehlenswert!

This sweet little town wasn't a top-mentioned place in my guide book, so what a lovely surprise! I stopped on my way from the Garden Route to Cape Town, and could not have felt more welcomed at this gorgeous historical home. Great rate too, includes full breakfast. I arrived after 6 pm, but the hostess phoned the town's best restaurant...

We just stayed for one night on our trip down the Garden Route. Property was very nice and breakfast was amazing. Host was very informative about the property and the town (and where to eat - although choice was limited by late hour)
