I have stayed over at the Black Swann on many occasions and have never been disappointed by the great atmosphere of the place. The rooms are really comfortable and super clean with excellent room service. The Braai area and swimming pool are a great relaxing experience in summer, with the outdoor T.V for one's convenience. The restaurant serves great meals... More

My wife and I travelled through the Eastern Cape recently where we decided to stay over in Queenstown. The first B&B I have looked up on the net came up as The Black Swan, which I took as the 1st best option as I was not in the mood to look around. I must say, the best place ever I... More

The restaurant was closed for renovation (the main reason I had booked there as we ate the best steaks for many years there last year). But the service is excellent and the rooms were super-clean. Roy suggested I try the new restaurant "The Gallery" and I was... More

The manager, Brendan, was very helpful on arrival and recommended a few eating joints, particularly Dagwood Roadhouse (dirty, pub grub), which was awesome... More

We stayed for 1 night, food is excellent and worth the money you paid but I was very dissapointed with the room, stayed in room 7. The linnen was dirty, only one towel after we requested another (room was booked for 2). Coffee miggs were dirty as well ad the shower floor and wall where the bed is. See photo's... More

I really enjoy staying at the Black Swann. There is nothing more inviting than the crackle of wood in a fireplace, great food and the comfort of a lovely room on cold nights

Rooms - clean and spacious with good quality furniture Restaurant & bar - a good place to meet locals as well.

The menu is comprehensive and meals reasonably priced and the preperation of meals outstanding - the chef do a perfect steak -... More
