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.

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.

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
