This cottage is an old fashioned place, a time-traveling place. The owner is very pleasant and interesting. I quite enjoyed the living-room with jazzy sound and interesting books. The parrot is quite polite too !

Nice place, a little bit cold in winter but heated blankets and an oil heater in the room helped. Room doesn't lock from the outside but the ladies are always inside. Breakfast was well made and warm.

This is one place I would like to come back to as the time spent here was very short, we could not breath in the place fully. The owner is wonderful and very helpful in suggesting the places to go.

A very warm welcome. Great stay in a very comfortable room and great breakfast. Very helpful host who was able to help us find Leicester City's final match of the Premiership on TV and clean up a very dirty car. Free wifi. Thanks for a great stay.

First time in Swellendam. Friendly reception. Idyllic setting. Beautiful garden and surrounds. Safe enough to go jog alone. Real character. Free wifi 😄. Very very quiet. Only downside is having no radio or tv in room... I felt a little lonely.

Fabulous! My family of nine thought the cottage, our friendly hosts, the pool and garden, and the delicious breakfast so special and memorable. Thank you. A wonderful start to our holiday along the Garden route.

If you want to be in walking distance to restaurants and explore the town on foot then this is an excellent location. The guest house has lots of character and tastefully decorated. The owners were on holiday so we were hosted by their son who was very accommodating with all our requirements. Stayed in the honeymoon suite - be warned...

I was here the second time and it was again a very nice stay in a cute little town and a very lovely guesthouse! The breakfast is very good and you can sit outside or inside. I am sure I will come back one day!
