Spacious comfortable rooms, and travelers must make note that these are self catering units. There are therefore no cutlery provided. There are mugs for coffee / tea, and a microwave oven. There are good safe parking available.

Being a regular traveller to Cape Town, Durban and Joburg and staying in excellent B and B's in those centres, I was really dreading an overnight stay in Queenstown. A friend recommended The Black Swann. I was pleasantly surprised. A stunning B and B with comfortable rooms and a restaurant which surpassed all my expectations. The Black Swann will certainly...

We stayed at The Black Swann and I have to say they tick all the boxes! Spacious room, clean and comfortable. The restaurant needs a special mention as the food is absolutely awesome! I can recommend this guesthouse to anyone

What a gem. I travel to Queenstown every month for the last 3 years and have tried a few B&B's and Black Swan is truly a step above the rest. This is home away from home as friend hospitality is concerned. The rooms are trendy and very clean with subtle touches of elegance and quality. The food is magnificent so... More

My husband and I spent one night at The Black Swann on a business/leisure trip. The supper was beautifully prepared (perfect medium rare steaks) and served by a lovely friendly lady. The accommodation was excellent. Beautiful, crisp, white, clean linen. Furnishings in the room are very tasteful and functional. Great desk for doing that evening work! The room and bathroom...

My husband and I stayed at The Black Swann for 3 days while visiting family in the area and we couldn't have been more pleased. Our room was spacious and immaculately clean with a very comfortable bed and a large shower. We received a warm welcome from the management and were served an excellent breakfast in the morning. The B&B... More

We arrived without booking and we had a warm welcome. Our room was very good and we found it very well priced. Our host went out of her way to assist us. Safe parking. Did not have breakfast as they don't serve breakfast Sundays.

Very disappointed - not at all according to previous reviews. We were a group that booked 6 rooms, called at 18:00 to inform that we will be arriving at 19:30 but were informed kitchen close at 7pm and they will place the dinner in the room. How bad this was, I could not eat the food as it contained grain,... More

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
