Reading previous reviews I find it difficult to add to the positive responses others have indicated. One would have to be a persnickety old git to find fault with this fabulous guest house. Again, arranged by our travel agent and a lovely surprise. If you need a stopover in Swallendam, look no further.

As we were driving in the secured parking area a member of staff rushed out to greet us. We were told to leave our bags in the car and were ushered in to the lounge for a welcome drink which turned out to be afternoon tea - homemade scones and cake. Perfect after a long drive from Hermanus. Room 1...

Schoone Oordt has become our "go to" overnight stopover on our return to SA and en route to our home in Knysna. We are made so welcome, as are all guests of course, and it has been lovely to see the development of this beautiful house over the past few years. It is specially lovely in wintertime when you can...

The honey moon suit was superb with a four poster bed , large spacious bathroom with every need catered for. The location was ideal and central to the town. An easy stroll up and down the main street revealed some delightful...

We were delighted with the accommodation which was in one of the purpose built bungalows away from the main house. This was not a problem and was very peaceful and quiet. They are a newish build and again we would ask the designers as to why they don't provide any shelving in the bathroom. Well provided for and convenient for...

we sadly only had one night here which was a bit of a waste as we did not get to really make to most of this beautiful accommodation.
