Pleasant surprise Aan de Oever was. We booked this place thinking that one night stay at swellendam driving between cape town and mossel bay on garden route should be fine. Did not have much expectations However from the moment we arrived to the minute we left my wife & I couldn't stop praising this place, service location and warm and... More

I recently stayed at 6 B&Bs in 6 towns in the Western Cape region in South Africa. To help me evaluate the inns, I developed a scorecard with 15 criteria and a composite and weighted score between 0 to 100 for each inn. This B&B ranked second with a score of 82. This inn has beautiful grounds, especially the garden... More

Wow, what a pleasant surprise Aan de Oever was. From the moment we arrived to the minute we left my wife & I couldn't stop talking about our stay. We were fortunate enough to get a room upgrade and were extremely impressed with the room facilities. We had an excellent nights sleep, fantastic breakfast and even got a 'padkos' surprise... More

A comfortable stopover on the garden route and for us it worked well as they have a spacious family room, good attention to detail and very friendly. Good breakfast also! We visited in the winter and didn't take advantage of the outdoor setting but they have a nice garden.

A charming bed and breakfast with a very comfortable room. Walking distance from many restaurants and arts and crafts stores. Carol in reception was extremely helpful and nice. Make sure to visit the berry farm up the hill. Will stay there again.

What a beautiful little find - we stayed in one of the loft rooms! Private, exceptional mountain and creek views, and very large in size. As it was only an overnight stay we made the most of our views as we were arriving just before sunset. We sat on our private deck with a beer until the sun went down.... More

Charming Cape Dutch house in a quiet neighborhood. While the location is beautiful (in the foothills of mountains), Carol's hospitality made our trip especially enjoyable. She provided a cot/crib for our 7-week old baby, upgraded our room (free of charge), gave excellent restaurant recommendations, and gave us a discount. Friendly. Breakfast was good, too. Upon our departure, Carol helped coordinate... More

I spent one extremely comfortable night here and can highly recommend this guesthouse. Quiet, comfortable, great breakfasts and friendly staff. It was a cold night, but with good central aircon switched on warm and a warm electric blanket it was warm and toasty inside. The area is nice and I highly recommend Field & Fork around the corner for cheesecake!

My husband and I felt right at home. We felt welcome. Our room was neat and tidy. The restaurant that was suggested for our dinner was superb. Next day before we departed our car was washed! An added bonus. We shall definitely go there again.
