Beautiful serene place. Staff knowledgeable, helpful, familial. If not for the 21 hour plane ride I would stay in this guesthouse repeatedly.

Good stay in good B&B

Posted May 29, 2017 on Hotels
Beautiful room overlooking superb gardens. Had everything we needed and very secure. Buffet style cooked breakfast - not quite as good as other B&Bs but nothing to complain about.

Lovely place to stay

Posted May 11, 2017 on Hotels
very comfortable bed and a good shower. We were pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to a garden room with a balcony where I had the unexpected opportunity to watch the SunBirds feeding. Breakfast was plentiful and good with great service. This is a lovely place to stay with a peaceful atmosphere. The Drostdy Museum close by is certainly worth a visit. Vera who checked us in and was the hostess for breakfast was extremely helpful and even packed some delicious muffins for our onward journey.

Very good, very friendly.

Excellent place to stay, very friendly welcome and although room was a little odd it had everything that I needed, including good air-conditioning and a strong shower. Area was pleasant with several good restaurant choices within 10 minutes walk in a safe area. Breakfast was comprehensive and they even had a guy there who cleaned the car while I had breakfast (just for a tip, no fee).

Delightful Guest House in an interesting town.

Posted Feb 24, 2017
Pros: Professional whilst very friendly owners and staff; excellent facilities, including a pool.inters
Location: Swellendam is an interesting town with a long history and a good museum complex. We visited De Hoop Nature Reserve and also the many nearby vineyards.
My wife and I stayed for 5 nights in this lovely house. We had a warm reception and had already been booked in for dinner at a restaurant within easy walking distance. It turned out to be excellent and we returned there several times. Our room was comfortable and was well-equipped; it had a wonderful view of the nearby mountains. Breakfasts were more than adequate and service both excellent and friendly. Our car was washed early each morning without anyone having been asked.

Excellent b&b with attractive outside space

Posted Feb 22, 2017 on Hotels
Only stayed for one night, but all excellent. Kingfisher room was a decent size with en suite featuring a bath and shower. Finished decking area overlooking attractive small pool and well maintained gardens leading down to the river. Very good buffet breakfast and car washed!!! Free muffins given on departure. Should have stayed longer!

Awesome breakfast

Posted Feb 6, 2017 on Hotels
Just a 1 night stop with my family on our way to Cape Town. Place is really cozy and nice, with a garden, pool and beautiful view of the mountains. Breakfast is amazing!!! Too bad we stayed for so little. Also, they were very nice and gave us some muffins on the way out. They take care of every little detail.

Great guest house in stunning gardens

Posted Jan 27, 2017 on Hotels
If you're planning a stay in Svellendam then look no further. Superb guest house. Large room with private balcony overlooking the stunning gardens, pools and mountains. Great welcome, lovely breakfast and even a car wash and bag of home-baked muffins to send you on your way. Excellent.
