    The rooms are all arranged around the pool and a lovely yard. The owners and the staff are all fantastic. The room was compact but very clean and well-appointed. A little far from the center of town but there are numerous dining options within a five minute walk. Plan ahead on Sunday since most everything is closed.

    A welcome break on our journey.

    A simple hotel, our one night stay here was excellent. The rooms are set in gardens round a pool. There is a guest fridge and an honesty bar. We had the two garden rooms which are probably the best, they shared a partly covered terrace with a benches and tables. The cooked breakfast was delicious, a good choice of fruit, cereal and bacon, eggs etc. It is not a fancy hotel but a friendly guest house to which we would return.

    Scenic comfortable plaace to stay

    This is a lovely and very friendly guest house. The rooms had everything required of them to make your stay simple and enjoyable. The pool and gardens are spectacular and spotlessly clean. We only stayed on night and wish it were more. Breakfast was awesome. Owners soooooo helpful.

    A very pleasant night stop.

    The property was beautifully decorated and maintained. The hostess was friendly and welcoming. Swellendam is an unusual but interesting little town with a good selection of restaurants. The nearby Bontebok Nature Reserve is well worth a visit.
