This guesthouse is really well presented . The rooms are lovely , and the resident cat added character to the place. Not too much of a walk to the main road. Though we found Swellendam a bit quiet with not much going on in the evening. It may of been the time of year . Didn't sample the breakfast ,... More

We really enjoyed our one night stop over at La Rachelle on our way to Cape Town. Rachelle made is feel at home straight away and was very chatty. The rooms have lots of character and are more than adequate for a few nights stay. Rachelle gave us several suggestions of places to eat and tried to put them in... More

Great place to stay. Very centrally situated, near restaurants and signts. The room was very clean and welcoming. The beds had electric blankets which were necessary as it was an exceptionally cold night. The room we had was very quiet which was great as we are slight sleepers. A light breakfast is included in the rate and it was all... More

Pretty as a picture. Cute garden. Feel so relaxed after a tough work day. Thanks to my hosts. They welcome you in and then leave you in peace. DSTV, wi-fi, what bliss. Recommended for business or holiday. Enjoying the beautiful warm weather, under the stars.

We visited in January but picked a night when the heavens opened up, the owners were away but we were nicely helped and the room although not the largest was more than adequate for our needs. Everything that we could possibly need was in the room and it was well appointed as was the bathroom. We were only passing through... More

This was a very pleasant short stay. The owner was very accommodating and made us feel very secure. The quality of the rooms was good and they are built courtyard- style which was nice for us as a family as we were all close together. Breakfast the next day was decent. The availability of wifi was also a plus.
