We recently stayed at Schoone Oordt for two nights. Right from our arrival to the moment of departure this Country House Hotel didn't miss a beat. The setting is lovely the position is quiet although in a Town location. (The Town is generally quiet, but not in a switched off way, more a subtly civilised way) The Accomodation here is...

Had a lovely few nights at Schoone Oordt recently. The owner and staff could not have been more welcoming. The room was very comfortable with lovely personal touches. We ate dinner there on our first evening which was delightful. I would thoroughly recommend a stay at this gracious place.

We only had one night at Schoone Oordt Country House on our way from Port Elizabeth to Cape Town along the Garden Route. It was an oasis of calm and tranquility. We were given a warm welcome and treated to an exceptional standard of service. The food was great as were the rooms. The location is ideal with beautiful gardens...

A beautiful stop between Cape Town & Plettenberg Bay. This charming house is definitely THE place to stay. Beautiful room, great service and wonderful food (and wines). A relaxing rest at the pool upon arrival followed by dinner in the charming dining room. The next morning we enjoyed a great breakfast we fresh local products. We just enjoyed every minute...

What a wonderful place! On arriving at Schoone Oordt, we could not have felt more welcomed. We were then shown around the main house then taken to our room which was quite simply perfect. The style of decoration is absolutely gorgeous and our only regret was that we were only staying one night as part of our journey. We ate...

Our travel agent, African Pride, booked this guesthouse for us as part of an extended holiday in South Africa and interpreted our accommodation requirements very well. Amongst some excellent choices of accommodation during our holiday this one was exceptional in very many ways. The greeting when we arrived was friendly and efficient and we were offered a choice of refreshments...

My wife and I set off from Cape Town on a 2300 mile adventure to celebrate getting married. We hired a car and set off from Stellenbosch and arrived and the fantastic SOCH after driving through some wonderful scenery. What a perfect place to stop of for the night. We could have stayed a while longer. The atmosphere was relaxed...

We spent two nights here in January, the staff were very friendly and helpful advising us on where to go locally. The rooms were very comfortable and well equipped. All the meals were delicious and beautifully presented and the surprise breakfasts a real treat. Fidney was very attentive and we had a most interesting chat to him one evening.

This was our first time in South Africa, and we had a pretty traditional trip planned, starting in Cape Town and ending up two weeks later in Port Elizabeth. Most of the trip - Cape Town, Stellenbosch, Knysna, Plett, Addo, etc. - wrote itself, and in truth we weren't sure whether we would bother with Swellendam. But I'm so glad...

Old Victorian style mansion with homely lounge and beautiful conservatory dining room. Balcony overlooking manicured gardens. Food was prepared with care and skill. Not much to see in the town but well worthy of a one night stop over. Breakfast was excellent too. Room was very nice.
