Wilma and Desmond made us feel like friends not visitors. We especially liked the beautiful garden. Port and chocolate were a nice surprise before going to bed. Thank you for your hospitality, Wilma and Desmond!

Up to now we were only intent on getting from Somerset West to Knysna in the shortest possible time. Swellendam was just signpost along the way. Now that we are in our late 70's we decided to break the journey - and what a pleasure break it became. The town is beautiful and full of interest. De Oude Pastorie was a haven of comfort of the highest order. Our hosts, Des and Wilma, were friendly, efficient and went out of their way to make us welcome, comfortable, well fed, and fully rested for the next leg of our journey. We will make it a must for our stops on the road to Knysna in future and cannot recommend it too highly.

We changed several times our reservation and got instant answers and "ok" from the owner. They helped us in finding and recommending the best restaurant in town. Breakfast was wonderful.Delightful big pool.

Had a very enjoyable 3 days here in the cottage in the garden. So nice to be able to wander out straight into the garden to sit and read or just enjoy the view.
The owners, Wilma and Desmond really put themselves out to make sure we enjoyed our stay and it was lovely being in a B &B where the owners really cared for us and our comfort.
The breakfasts were delicious and the eggs came from their own chickens .
Felt very sad when it was time to leave.
