This was only a functional night stop heading back to Cape Town, as we've already been in the Tsitsikamma area a week before, but we loved this place and will sure spend more time there next time. Storms River Village is very picturesque and these cottages are just at the entrance, surrounded by lush vegetation, many birds and even monkeys.... More

Nothing much you can do wrong in the lovely village of Stormsrivier but Swallow's nest is really an outstanding B&B. We were 3 (couple and a friend) to stay in a 2 bedroom cottage with a shared bathroom. Cottage is nicely decorated and fully equipped so self-catering also possible. Corrie (Dutch origin) & Ken are discrete and friendly hosts and... More

We were seven adults and stayed in Bluebell Cottage for one night. The owners were very welcoming and gave us good advice on the area and where to eat in the evening. (Within walking distance and safe!) Breakfast was great and the garden is fantastic. The rooms are a little dated, like previous reviewers have also written, but that added... More

Staying at Swallows Nest is like being transported back in time; the rooms are all a bit dated and would welcome modernization. That said, the bed was very comfortable and we slept incredibly well. The garden is fabulous and i found myself just smiling to myself whilst breathing in the scent from the flowers and marveling at the view of... More

A recent 3 day stay in this area was enhanced by the warmth and friendliness of our hosts and their staff. The location is superb and exceedingly tranquil. Excellent location for trips down to Storms River Mouth.

The overall appearance of the outside area is superb and the owners could not have been more welcoming. The breakfast as we experienced in all of our accommodation in South Africa was excellent. The location was good with easy walking to restaurants. If you are self catering shopping is limited within driving distance so come prepared. We had difficulty finding... More

Great help given by ken with the brai. Houses in need of a bit of modernisation. Lay out of cottages and grounds lovely. Quiet location. Good space in rooms but dark. Much nicer to sit outside and enjoy peaceful garden.
