My family and I loved our stay at Swallow's Nest. The family suite was perfect, and felt homely and cosy. The location was great, as it's close to facilities in Storm's River and it doesn't take too long to drive to Storm's River Mouth.

Spent 3 nights at Swallows Nest and really enjoyed our stay. The staff were efficient, helpful and friendly. The cottage was clean and was suitably equipped. Enjoyed the well prepared and stocked fireplace during the evenings! Breakfast was excellent. Definitely will visit again

A very nice garden/park with -from the outside- nice cottages. The inside was small and old-fashioned. Need an up-date !! Good beds, very small bathroom. The breakfast was a little bit poor. No cheese, meatproducts or sweets. The gate stood open all night. Not a safe feeling, especially with the carparking right after the gate.

Overall good stay, but as we got to bed, we noticed that the sheets had not been changed. We were offered a new sheet that we could change ourselves but nothing else. Hence the poor score. We had a very good breakfast on the other hand, and the room was spacious.

ideally placed to visit the Storms river area. Located just on the outskirts of town, accommodation was adequate. Take care when booking to specify whether Self Catering or B&B is required. B&B accommodation is acceptable but the bedroom and en suite bathroom are small. Breakfasts were served freshly cooked to individual requirements. Noted that the property has a sold notice... More

We found Swallows Nest to be wonderfully relaxing, spacious and very well appointed. We particularly liked the large garden area. A bonus was that it was within walking distance of the Canopy Zip-Line which is a must do if you want to get up into the forest amongst the tall timber. Cute little monkeys visited us at the cottages.
