We spent two nights at this lovely B&B address with a most talketive and hospitable Bettie who made us feel at home from the beginning. Very specious bed- and bathroom with a modern walk-in shower ! Our special compliments fr the extensive breakfast wth nice and fresh products. We' ll certainly recommend this lodge to others.

After a long drive from Cape Town we found this place. Very accommodating considering we arrived quite late and had not booked. Lovely cottage style rooms in a garden setting. Breakfast was amazing and staff extremely helpful.

Everyone stays here for its location but this hotel has a charm of its own. Faded Empire is the style but worth staying. Really nice staff, so helpful. Nice breakfast. garden rooms don't have aircon which it would need in high summer.

My partner and I spent two nights here in March on our way to Cape Town. We loved everything about it. The lovely room, beautiful gardens and wonderful breakfast. It is very close to local restaurants and in a great location to visit De Hoop Nature Reserve which we did. Swellendam is an interesting town in an area of natural... More

We stayed in at this accommodation for one night last month, with the intention of visiting the Bontebok National Park the day after. We were welcomed very friendly and heartily and we were shown the only room left for the night. The room was very clean and modern, it has a big bathroom and separate shower and bath. We thoroughly... More

The queit and comfortable rooms, the beatifull garden and above all the warm welcome by the owners make this place an excellent lodge to stay. The city centre (with the nice open air museum) and good restaurants are nearby. It wa a good experience staying in the Swellendam lodge during our raod trip trough South Africa

At western end of the town, so very easy to find from Swellendam West exit from N2. A short drive from the main historic sites in Swellendam, but a couple of good restaurants almost next door. Good well decorated and peaceful rooms and pleasant garden and pool - distant noise when around pool. An excellent breakfast, and having car washed... More

The Swellendam Country Lodge is a very good, comfortable, beautifull and well maintained Lodge. We found it by chance and we were very surprised that so close to the road such a nice and quiet lodge can be found. Everything is great here but the breakfast is the best! Our Lodge was may be a little small but that was... More
