We had a beautiful chalet in the garden. In the great room we found very nice furniture so we felt very comfortable. The little restaurant was closed because of the end of the season but we got our breakfast served in and enjoyed the very good service in a charming room. Unfortunately only one night, but we were really enthusiastic... More

We enjoyed to "own" our own garden cottage. The furniture has style and it's great that the shower has a little window (you can use the mirror in the bath at the same time) :-) The staff is very friendly and the breakfast tastes great.

Just what you need for a stay in a smaller town. It is a very attractive courtyard type arrangement of rooms around a neat, lovely garden. The establishment is central to historic spots and restaurants.

We arrived in Swellendam from a cooler coastal Mossel Bay, it was over 30F and like walking through a greenhouse, the garden rooms were so cool inside and the beds lovely and comfortable, we had an afternoon dip in the beautifully clean pool which was a welcome relief to the heat, followed by a relaxing cup of tea on the...

Our stay was not planned and we had no booking - our car broke down and we needed accommodation. We were welcomed with smiles and shown to our rooms without any problems - in fact they even provided a cot for the baby. We asked if the rooms would be available for another night should it be necessary and this... More

Always great to stay there and we will definitely be back! Our only constructive input is that if we had been advise beforehand that we could have dinner there, we would most certainly have done so. We will book next time!

The hosts Freerk and his very capable wife Helpi, were so gracious in receiving us at their lodge. The breakfast was more than five star class. The most scrumptious coulourful fruit salad ever. I absolutely recommend anyone to stay over at this lodge.
