An unique experience

For our one night stay, we got the whole cottage for our use, even though we booked for 2 adults. It came with 2 rooms. One with a queen bed, another one with 2 single beds. The queen bed is comfortable for a good night sleep. Netflix video streaming was provided for the living room TV. This is really nice to entertain us for the evening. The house is fence up and gated to give a sense of safety. But, anyway, the area is relatively safe.

Enjoyable and affordable stay

Nicolette is a great host, and we did enjoy our stay a lot. It is very affordable, and the Protea room is beautiful and fully equipped. I was surprised to even see a small microwave in the room. The breakfast was very nice, and the outside seating area is lovely, with a beautiful view of the mountains. We will definitely go back for either the guesthouse or the self catering cottage

Visit Impagnele ! Now ! 😀

My wife and stayed overnight at Impangele on route towards the west coast. We had chosen arbitrarily and were abolutely delighted ! We had found a true gem. The owners have recently taken over and they are doing a fantastic job. They could not have been more obliging, friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay enormously and we plan a longer stay to explore Swellendam more thoroughly next time we travel to South Africa. We thoroughly recommend Impagnele. You will love it ! Don't hesitate.

Cozy B&B

Pleasant (one night) stay at this B&B. Dave was very accommodating, and was kind enough to prepare a take-away bag full of food to take with us in lieu of breakfast, as we had to depart very early. We greatly appreciated that.

Host was nice and the sheets were clean but...

Didn't expect very much for the price. Facilities are minimal, which is fine and at least the sheets were clean. But the cottage does feel like it needs a good clean. There is a lot of dust under the beds, on the furniture, etc. Plates in the kitchen cupboard still had food on them. No dish soap available to wash them off even. Some of the plug points weren't working. Won't stay again. Won't recommend.

Pros: Location

Cons: Just needs a good clean and some dish soap to wash dishes
