Our hosts were very friendly and its definitely value for money, but the room was extremely extremely cold. We were provided an additional heater, but still, it barely heated up. I would rate as a 3 star.

We stayed 2 nights in Swellendam and in this pittoresque GH. We had the Dbl room at the far end. This room is nicely decorated and reflects perfectly the colonial atmosphere. I adored the original window blinds at the interior! Shower/bathroom/toilet combination a bit narrow but that is really a detail. You have your own private patio with table &... More

We recently spent one night at Elianthe Guesthouse and had a great experience. The hosts are friendly and helpful and the facilities are clean, very comfortable and spacious. The pool area and garden seating is lovely. The guesthouse is also very well located - walking distance to many restaurants, and a 10 minute drive to the berry farms and Marloth... More

Because our initial booking at another lodge went wrong we ended up at Elianthe's, and happily so. Extremely helpful and friendly hosts (thanks for the tip to drive via Lovers wine estate towards Montague: great suggestion), big lovely garden with pool and wooden deck chairs. Our room was very spacious and safe with nice details that exceeded our expectations of... More

We spent 2 nights in this lovely characterful old Dutch Colonial house in Swellendam,which is a small town with a number of historical buildings and really nice relaxed feeling, just off the N2 route halfway between Capetown and Mossel bay on the Garden route. Our room was charming with french windows opening onto a verandah overlooking a lovely landscaped garden,with... More

We can really recommend this place. The owners are very friendly and the rooms are nicely decorated, clean and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the swimming pool which is very nice. The guesthouse is centrally located close to some good restaurants.

I have had the privilege of staying at Elianthe's Guest House in Swellendam (South Africa's third oldest town Est. in 1745)on route to Cape Town from George on a few occasions now and have found the accommodation to be of a very high standard. The host Elize is always available and nothing is to much of a problem for her

My mother and I stayed in this B&B on our Garden Route Trip. The hosts were very nice and our room was large. The breakfast was not included, but is was cheap and very good. We can fully recommend this B&B.

We stayed at Elianthe's Guesthouse while on a 6-day MTB ride from Paarl to Knysna. The pool was very welcome after a hot, long day in the saddle. And the accommodation was clean and comfortable but certainly not luxurious - perfect for our requirements
