This was the 2nd time we stayed in this Guest House which also doubles as a Ristorante. Gianni and his wife won last year's 'Best Italian Restaurant in the Southern Cape'. The rooms are attractive, attached to the main house. The hosts proved very helpful and considerate. Their food is truly excellent and varied so naturally we ate in every... More

My wife and I stayed one night at guesthouse. The room is nice, clean and modern style. The garden, the pool, the lounge room are really nice. The breakfast is wonderful with delicatessen food. We decided to have also a dinner at La Sosta Restaurant because many people suggested to us to do so. We discovered a really great restaurant... More

Most fantastic stay at La Sosta. The cuisine whipped up by Christiana and the generous hosting by Giovanni makes for a memorable stay. True little gem tucked away in Swellendam. Thank you guys!! We will be back.

While possibly the main reason to stay here is to have easy access to the remarkable restaurant (see separate entries). It also has many added benefits in that one is able to interact with Gianni and Cristiana, two most charming and hospitable hosts. Although the restaurant may be the main focus of the operation, the three bedrooms are stylish, comfortable,... More

Worldwide best hospitality ever, We were in Swellendam during a heatstroke with our 9 months old daughter. When we arrived she was already sick, but the help and everything we got from the owners was the best you could ever imagine. At night we had a great dinner and the next day we had to leave to hospital unfortunately. We... More

I will keep this short. A very very good meal. The owner and staff are very helpful in this Italian restaurant and will help you with menu if required.They advised us we might have ordred to much from the menu. Best to share some of the first courses. Best to book ahead. We will go back. Great value.

We really didn't think that we would find a restaurant like this in Swellendam. It is a small Italian restaurant run by a Milanese couple and provides delicious food. Everything is as fresh as it could be with everything home made if possible. It is well worth going to if you are I that area. Booking is advisable. For three... More

We stayed only one night as we had a tight schedule travelling through South Africa. But if we had more time we would have stayed for the food alone (the best italian I have ever had - the veal was amazing!). They run their own restaurant inside the B&B and there was a nice atmosphere with some local diners and... More
